January in the 'Lou
« on: January 29, 2008, 03:27:37 PM »

The Shire is usually a mild place to live in the winters, save a few power debilitating ice storms.  You're gunna get a few days when it reaches 70*, and others that get below 20*.  But today - that all happened inside of a few hours  Shocked

Went to lunch, we ditched the coats, the subway had its doors propped open - a nice 73* when we returned around 12:45.  When I left work at around 5:10pm, it was snowing and windy.... and 23*.

Another typical January day in St. Louis.  Roll Eyes  Undecided

Hit 60 today; dropping to 40 tonight, high 40s tomorrow, mid-20s tomorrow night.

But it's supposed to be 70 by next Tuesday!

While today wasn't that unusual, I can't remember a day where the temps swung so drastically.

Not often - its kind of a sarcastic reference to all the 'cute' names people give cities.

Cold a **** here!  over.

When I left work yesterday it was 42 and no wind.

Today it was -8 and 30 mph winds.

****offnowadaysarcticairmass!

I've come to the conclusion that, at -47 (realfeel), it's cold outside.  'Course, I came to that conclusion because I thought for sure our window just cracked due to the the popping sound it just made.  No cracks, thankfully, just ice around the edges.  We really need to upgrade our windows....

I still recall my first visit to the twin cities, -50* (realfeel).  My boss and I got out of the cab at the hotel (wearing my typical leather jacket in the 'winter'), didn't feel too bad right away.  While we were getting the bags out of the trunk, the wind started cutting through my jacket, my 'nose'  Wink froze, and I decided to give the cabbie a little extra for bringing my bags inside for me, as I made a mad dash for the door - in what I believed was a run for my very life  Grin .   Freakin COLD!





Upon returning home, I quickly purchased a down filled overcoat for my future travels north.

about to get crazy/nasty here too

currently 52 (43 realfeel) with steady rain

by 8 am we'll be down to around 20 with a -3 realfeel  (yeh, that's nowhere near as bad as -50)

but all the rain on the roads is probably going to freeze straight into ice for the morning commute
