    I think I'll just build my next driveway out of salt tabs that are heated...screw the car.

    I hate clearing snow off the driveway.

    What about a lifting press that tilts the driveway up? Then you just need to keep your sidewalk and that little lower ramp that connects to the street clear, press the button, let the snow dump out... onto the sidewalk and you have to clear it again.

    Hm.

    I may not have thought this one all the way through.

    I've got it!

    Have it tilt sideways, into the yard, or better yet, into the neighbor's yard!

    The driveway is built of springboards and catapults.

    The wretched truth of the world is that if you can remove the snow with a flamethrower, there wasn't enough snow to merit removing it in the first place.

    Also does enough of the snow evaporate or is he just ensuring a solid sheet of ice come a few hours later

    Got an official ice warning, too, for tonight. Most severe weather events kinda go around the local area but we'll see.

    What does one do with their livestock in those conditions, roast the weak to make warmth for the strong?

    Put em in a barn? Wind chill is pretty easily stopped by a good set of walls.

    You build a v-shaped wall with the pointy end facing the prevailing wind. We used to store round bales like that on a fenced-off corner next to the winter grazing wheat. When a blizzard was coming, we'd just go drop the fence on that corner so that when the wind hit they'd all go naturally huddle in the windbreak.

    Bonus: if you get snowed in for a week, they'll snack on the bales at either end of the V instead of starving in the snow.

    Windchill during my run today had it down to single digits and, yeah, that's about what it felt like while my face could still feel things.

    It’s raining right now, just before the temperature is about to plunge.. haven’t seen a single salt truck out yet, I assume they are waiting for the very last moment so the salt doesn’t wash away

    SE Wisconsin -- At least it's too cold to snow...

    s7ixbzbnwc55.png

    It's like -8F but I switched to Celsius two years ago and have not regretted it. It makes you much more aware of global temperatures.

    I suggest that on the coldest day switch you phones/apps to Celsius and keep it like that for a year. You will just learn the system by use.

    To start you off:

    40 is top
    30 is hot
    20 is nice
    10 is cool
    zero is ice

    Have q good old fashioned ice storm here. About an eighth to quarter inch layer on more things. Not driving to work any time soon. That’s for sure.

    The projected high for Christmas Day here in Los Angeles is currently 81F, just a couple of degrees shy of the record high for the day.

    Sacramento, CA (actually a bit East, but close enough).

    The REAL good thing is North up the coast is getting even more.

    27 degrees here in the sunny FL panhandle. Wind-chill takes it to 18. Dry though, so that's good.

    They're warning of up-to-90 km/h winds tonight. The temp right now is -6, windchill -17. It is mildly snowing.

    Gonna have to go see if a bunch of containers outside are secure soon...

    ETA: I beg General Winter's fucking pardon
