The Polar Vortex is Coming!!!!

Post by ed » Sat Dec 10, 2016 10:30 am

Eleventy!11!!

Winter’s first polar vortex blast, already taking shape in the Arctic this weekend, targets the Lower 48 next week. By Tuesday, temperatures below zero will plunge south into the northern plains and Midwest. Over the course of a few days, the cold air will blast across the country to the Northeast.
Translation: It's winter.

Faux news.

p.s. my temperature will plummet into the 70's. :De_Bunk:

‘Bomb cyclone’ to blast East Coast before polar vortex uncorks tremendous cold late this week
Is it just me or do they keep coming up with increasingly hyperbolic words for weather phenomena?

Ha! All I had to do was drain the pipes to my washing machine and put a light bulb in to protect the pump.

Seriously though, in winter it's like living in a submarine. Close these valves, open these,attach the bucket to catch water.
Go upstairs to vent pipes.That done blow boyo because them PVC pipes have little use for ice.

Go down stairs to make sure nothing is leaking, throw out the ballast, go upstairs and to bed secure in the knowledge I (probably) won't have to buy a new washing machine.

Pie, yes (says the guy who never met a pie he didn't like). Punch on the other hand needs to be provided by attendants (151 rum suggested.)

7 degrees tomorrow. I am not shoveling in that weather.
