Get ready kiddies March will carry on the brutal cold!

This is like Hoth. I may have to open up a Tauntaun!


Quote:
It may be almost March, but the brutally cold winter appears unwilling to release much of the nation from its icy grip.

Yet another Arctic blast was already descending on two-thirds of the country early Friday, with meteorologists predicting everywhere east of the Rockies except for Florida would be 10 to 30 degrees below average.

Subzero temperatures were expected from interior New England to the Upper Midwest and forecasters said dozens more daily records were likely to tumble.

"We're almost into March now so it's pretty late to see this kind of cold," The Weather Channel's Michael Palmer said. "The cold this February has been brutal, and there doesn't look like there will be any let-up until late next week."

Subzero cold had already arrived in the Dakotas, Wisconsin, Michigan and Iowa by 4 a.m. ET and temperature records were expected to fall in those areas throughout the morning. The icy blast was expected to shift east throughout the day, Palmer said.

While the cold remained relentless, there was a brief rest from snow and ice for much of the nation. More than 100,000 homes and businesses were still without power in the Carolinas, Virginia, Alabama and Georgia, after those states were hit with as much as 10 inches of snow Wednesday.

The only areas getting snow early Friday were Oklahoma, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas.

Another band of snow was forecast to hit the Midwest on Saturday and shift into the Northeast on Sunday.

Let me make sure I understand you correctly.

You were swimming in the ocean.

That part of the ocean is known as the Shark Bit Capital of the World.

A shark came up to you.

He gave you a little nudge with his nose.

He did not bite, chomp, or otherwise swallow you whole.

You lived to tell the tale

You are now complaining about that?

Sharks do 2 things when they are curious about you. 1 obviously they take a bite out of you and 2 they ram you to see what you would do. Well that sucker rammed the crap out of me.

Give me some credit though I still swam back to shore, in a hurry too, with broken ribs. Remind me one day to tell you my rattlesnake story.

I know dude, I am just playing around.
Broken ribs are nothing to sneeze at, literally.
I have had several broken ribs, and swimming must have sucked donkey d!ck.

What kind of donkey d!ck? Big, Hairy donkey d!ck.

But considering, the other alternatives in that situation: (cut to 46 seconds in)

So we have sink holes happening in Russia right now due to "Global Warming" but we're having the harshest winter on record on the East Coast here in the states....

Sounds about right...

I drove west to Seattle & Arizona for January, so I missed the cold spell then.

I got back, and it was kinda cold (around 30-40) in North Carolina. Left the country for a vacation with the girlfriend in Mauritius, where it's been 85 & very humid for the last 10 days. Just got into Dubai yesterday where it was 80 & no humidity.

What is this cold weather you all are talking about??

Honestly, I like cold weather, and in some ways would have preferred it to sweating in jungle heat/humidity....maybe. OK, maybe not
