blink.gif That's really odd, but the panhandle has been known to do that. Your area shouldn't be affected though right?

Dad told me it did that in the late 60's and then again back in 78, so it does happen..

Not very damn often though.

Friends of mine in new Orleans are crying. They have no warm clothes at all. No homes aren't insulated or made to keep cold out . They don't know wtf to do.

Oh wow. Wouldn't hurt to have a few fleece blankets and candles around for emergencies like this.

If I were them, I'd dress in layers (3), then insulate the windows and doors with thick plastic, then I'd buy space heaters.

Luckily I am in Tampa and all we are dealing with is a constant nonstop drizzle of rain (which sucks cuz itz so annoying almost like a fog mist but you'd have to be here to know what I am talking about) and itz chilly out.

I was doing construction inspection on Longboat key one winter about 10 years ago, it was about 35F and the wind was nearly tropical force off the gulf.
The combo of cold, wind and damp can be brutal. In some ways, it's worse than here where we usually get a dry cold.

It's suckin' the biggun' here in Georgia.

Kids are still stuck at school after sleeping in gymnasiums all night. Some people got stranded on the beltway around Atlanta all night and had to piss their pants to stay warm in their cars.

Yesterday all Fed/State/County offices closed at noon (too late for Atalanta) and will open Thursday.

We've had ice-drizzle all day and I'm buggered if I know why the power is still on.

Doesn't sound too pleasant DaJ. Stay off the roads and stay warm. I hope you've stocked up for a few days. hug.gif
