I’d be happy to trade you winters  
 
It’s dropping back to -30 Celsius tonight.  I think that’s around -14 F (my conversions aren’t the best anymore  )
With wind chill or regular temperature? Either way, that's brutal.

No no, it's all good. When it gets cold enough to produce anything remotely like ice or snow, this whole city grinds to a halt and all milk and bread magically disappear from all grocery shelves. :classic_biggrin:

Glad I'm here.  This morning I had an email from my home church that it was closed due to snow.  I was probably one of very few people from my congregation at a live worship service today.

With windchill.  Without wind chill it’s around  -18 Celsius.

 

It was so cold yesterday I didn’t dare risk walking the dogs.  They have coats but noses, ears, etc. All freeze fast.

It’s pretty bad when they don’t get a walk 😉

LOL - when we are getting a Nor ‘Easter, we don’t grind to a halt but the whole world heads to the grocery stores.  I hear you on the disappearance.

 

The first thing to go here is water (in case of power outages) as well as bread 😉

Bad storms up your way Roy.  We’re hoping that the cold pushes the projected Nor ‘Easter out into the Atlantic.

 

We’ll know better by Tuesday.  It’s supposed to build to really massive proportions so the Atlantic is a great place for it.  Fingers crossed.

Priorities, people.  During the blizzard of '78 when the Governor shut us down, we stopped at the grocery to make sure we had wine to outlast the blizzard.

Harmony is certainly moving slow.

It takes a long time to back up an apartment house KK.

Our labs hated it when it was so cold that their pads froze to the ground. They'd just stand in the middle of our meadow like they were stuck. We'd have to go out and blow on their feet so they'd feel "unstuck." I don't miss those days when it looks nice and sunny but your nostrils freeze shut when you breathe in.

Plus amusement park and an in-built city park. 😞

Should the 3 HAL ships be next.  Maybe I'll get to hear if they toot before I need to go to dinner.

Looks like NS is singling up.  Lines in front went slack.

One thing I don’t worry about.  In the winter, I keep an extra month’s supply of dog food and a ton of coffee beans so we don’t need to worry.

 

We just worry about perishables and heat (power).

On Christmas Eve, I made a stop at Jewel for coffee pods.
