The Polar Vortex is Coming!!!!

Postby 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:

Eat shit northern hippie scum.

Nature is a whore.

P.S. Fuck you ed.
"It is not I who is mad! It is I who is crazy!" -- Ren Hoek

"[... it seems most strange that... ] the Creator of Heaven and Earth resorted to the womb of a certain Jewish lady, grew there for nine months and was born as an infant, and afterwards grew up and was betrayed into the hands of his enemies who sentenced him to death and executed him, and that afterwards... he came to life and returned to his original place. The mind of a Jew, or any other person, simply cannot tolerate these assertions. If you have listened all your life to the priests who have filled your brain and the marrow of your bones with this doctrine, and it has settled into you because of that accustomed habit. [I would argue that if you were hearing these ideas for the first time, now, as a grown adult], you would never have accepted them." -- Rabbi Moses ben Nahman, defending the Talmud at the Disputation of Barcelona, July 1263.

"God is the supreme excuse for human adults to absolve themselves of any obligation to preserve natural resources for their own children during their lifetime." -- Gene Ray

‘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.
The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.
