Snow storm, snow, ice, stormy weather conditions, blah, blah
Well, there it is, the snow. And I still don’t like it. Snow days mess with grown up plans – like WORK 😉
Anyhow, best pull on my thermals under my Daisy Dukes (actually, perhaps not – it paints not a pretty picture….!) because they (the media) say the worst is yet to come.
And this is what the media folk are saying:
‘It’s coast to coast: Rare winter weather slams virtually entire U.S.’
‘Flights are canceled, cars are piling up in icy crashes, and millions are stranded — many at home, others along roads. And this isn’t just typical winter fare slamming the Northeast. It’s part of a rare pattern walloping virtually the entire United States at once.’
This is the weather picture of the USA today…
I checked the temperatures for Florida first thing this morning, just to compare – jammy beggars!!
I still get confused about temperatures. I think in Celsius, not Farenheit. This leads to total confusion with American friends..
‘OMG, it’s going to be -7 in Rhode Island.’ [Where they were going.]
‘You’re kidding, that’s so, so, so, cold! Beyond cold.’ [Shocked, and slightly scared faces.] They pause. ‘Wait up, that’s in your funny language, right?’
‘Er, yes….so in Farenheit, it’s 19 degrees.’ [Which is still flipping freezing!]
So news reports about temperatures totally do my head in. Like this:
‘Temperatures in Baltimore are at or above freezing right now, but it is 30 in Frederick and 30 in Westminster.’
But how I read that is that freezing in Fahrenheit is not freezing, it’s like a number quite a bit above Zero. Zero is freezing because it is 0. Oh now, I’m, confusing myself.
Whatever it is, it is flippin’ cold and I don’t like it!
In all the snow confusion, this cute deer rescue comes out as a wintery-cheer fest!
Remind me to not to go Minnesota in the winter…
