Midwest Checkin

Creeperbane2Creeperbane2 Victorian ScoundrelIndianapolis, IN Icrontian

Temps are deadly here in the Midwest US. Figured I'd start a check in thread.

Indianapolis, IN -11, -37 with windchill. Power is on, staying put.

    Milwaukee hit -26 last night, with a shitload of wind.
    Lots of places closed here to keep people indoors.
    It is so cold in WI that the elementary school kids have indoor recess

    An hour north of Detroit we have between -8 and -10 actual with -26 and lower wind-chills.

    Honestly, I'm fine with below zero, but when it's windy and it's media-blasting your face with fine snow particles, GTFO.

    -10 here (Kalamazoo) with windchills in the -25 to -35 range depending on wind speed.

  • trooster89trooster89 Are you from London? Icrontian

    Don't for get to drip your faucets! Especially if your pipes are on an outside wall.

    Ok, I don't WANT to know what you consider cold.

  • AlexDeGruvenAlexDeGruven Wut? Meechigan Icrontian

    -12 actual and -30 windchill this morning. 4th snow day in a row. I can't wait to go in to work tomorrow for some peace and quiet.

  • edcentricedcentric near Milwaukee, Wisconsin Icrontian

    -28 here last night.
    But don't worry it will be 40 and raining on Sunday. WTF?

    Visit sunny Alexandria! The land of slightly more double-digit warmth than NYC. We definitely don't have boilers than can't keep up! Be warm with us!

    Last night, the coldest I saw was -15F (-26C) before I peaced out and tried to sleep. The radiators and boiler are having trouble keeping up with this mess, so it's 50F (10C) INSIDE the house. The office where we sit was even colder: 45F (7C) at midnight.

    Today it warmed up a lot: it's a balmy -1F (-18C) and sunny!

  • AlexDeGruvenAlexDeGruven Wut? Meechigan Icrontian

    We got above 0F!

    It’s 53 right now. Sunday it’s supposed to get up to 70. Not sure how I’m going to survive this.

  • AlexDeGruvenAlexDeGruven Wut? Meechigan Icrontian

    Tomorrow won't be so bad. I'll probably head into the office. School just called off for tomorrow making it an entire week, and 7 of the last 9 days (Monday was a holiday last week).

    Oldest: I love all these snow days. It's great!
    Me: Yeah, talk to me about it when you're in school 'til June 24th
    Oldest: Oh...

    I've been trying really hard to find a Nine Inch Nails or Jonny Cash Hurt gif to reply to this with, but I have so far struck out.

    Someone should try to describe what it felt like being outside in that weather for those of us too far south to ever experience such a thing.

    We have -38 (pretty much the same in f or c) every winter here (in certain places, not everywhere) without the winds. It's bloody cold, but we are used to it and it isn't as humid as you guys have it. (humid cold plus winds is the worst) I hope you guys are allright. Stay safe.

    Things have improved, was 48 here today, will be like that till Friday then back to like 28... because Indiana makes sense.

    55 today. 29 tomorrow afternoon.

    And Alex, don't forget the freezing rain that we will likely get in the transition.

  • AlexDeGruvenAlexDeGruven Wut? Meechigan Icrontian

    I work from home on Wednesdays, so I won't have to worry about it this time around. But oh yes. We love ourselves some ice rain
