Man, I have a heavy heart for the awful weather our friends are having in the southern states. I wish you all the best and hope it doesn't get any worse.

Best wishes for those from myself also. I like to pick on my southern friends when they complain about cold weather, but this is a new level of cold for them. Dangerous cold and the infrastructure is crumbling around them.

Quite a bit of talk in the media up here even. All the best folks! Forget the name of the place but only below zero 5 times in history.

Dangerous cold in the deep south and a tornado in SE NC last night. 3 confirmed fatalities so far as the search through the damaged area continues.

I see a tornado in NC I believe also. A sad for many, I couldn't imagine all those events and not use to weather like that.

The cold doesnít bother me. Itís the damage it does. We are not set up for it. Most of us here donít even have a house or roof due to the hurricane. A lot of us are living in trailers and tents. My father n law , called a said he has frozen pipes and my son n law said, his parents and grandparents, donít have power. And Iím a little worried about or cars and equipment! So , well see what we have to do now.

It's pretty bad in Texas. Texan's are not used to snow or the cold. The electrical has been out and it's impossible to get propane for those who use it for heat. Tomorrow has rain in the forecast which will make things much worse. It's hard on the animals who are not used to the cold and the water is frozen.

^ that is too bad. For us in the north is is just another Tuesday, dealing with frozen water and icy roads and all the winter weather is a normal. Not good it not use to living in those conditions and homes aren't built there for the extremes as they are in the north. GOOD LUCK TO ALL!

The power companies are now shutting power down to avoid overloading the system. Alot of people are going to be really cold... I will be in a camper, on an air mattress with no electricity. May have to build a fire in the bedroom...


If it makes a track on this earth , I can catch it.

Airport Trapper sounds like you might as well pitch a tent and build a big fire, take advantage of the weather and get your BS winter camp badge... grin

This kind of weather sucks if you're not prepared for it. Stay safe, stay warm..

Talked to my kids today, they are outside of Fort Worth, minus 1 this morning. They don't think its a big deal, but they're used to it living here most of their lives. Been checking on their old neighbors and so far everyone is getting by. They're mostly worried about the brown, black outs, seems the electric companies don't want to spend the money to winterize, and keep up their emergency generator systems and electric grid.

So every ten years or so, when they get a cold snap, stuff won't work. Then, there's no snow equipment, salt, spreaders etc. not even a snow shovel. Not to mention they can't drive when it's raining much less in the ice..Different world there...

White gas lanterns and camp stoves will work when propane won't if your nervous about a water line freezing let the hot faucet drip and that will help keep your water going in your house .

The old single or double mantel lanterns will emit a lot of heat just be careful filling them with fuel I always started with 2 lanterns one running the other as backup , then remember these need to have the fuel pressurized so if it starts to go dim pump it up carefully so the mantels don't become damaged.

Or melt snow just not the yellow stuff !
Hang in there and if all else fails take turns licking a flag or clothesline pole ha ha humor helps is weather like this trust me !

This is retribution for all the Lower 48 business who have, over the years, refused to ship to Alaska.....!

Evidently the windmills aren't working too well.

The worst part I think is the electric black outs. The system is overloading so the power companies are having to shut down parts of the grid. It could be really bad for all the total-electric folks. -7 this morning.

Heard on the weather channel last night that Dallas could see -5 temps overnight. That's dangerous conditions to be in without heat if you lose your electric.

yea it's shattered alot of records for coldest temp on that date, lot of old records from back as far as the 1800's.

Got power here but alot without out just north of me a few miles, power company trucks been running up all day long, must be some major mess's up that way. It's in the coldest part of the state also, think was about 4 degree's up there this morning!
