Be careful what you wish for

OM45GE - Posted - 12/06/2016:  07:05:05


I hope you have a mop.

DeanT - Posted - 12/06/2016:  11:08:42


the cool temps are arriving with the snow!

OM45GE - Posted - 12/06/2016:  11:36:29


Maybe they'll make it.

chuckv97 - Posted - 12/06/2016:  12:26:15


I just checked Wichita weather -  freezing tonight. Get out the ice scraper.

OM45GE - Posted - 12/06/2016:  12:33:52


I'll send more snow.

DeanT - Posted - 12/06/2016:  16:56:51


Thanks you guys! I can't wait!!!

OM45GE - Posted - 12/07/2016:  03:39:00


We got rain overnight and the snow has melted. Can you send some back?

chuckv97 - Posted - 12/07/2016:  06:03:54


It's so cold here the snow's turned into fine dry powder

OM45GE - Posted - 12/07/2016:  07:51:23


That's fun to ski on.

chuckv97 - Posted - 12/07/2016:  08:41:25


The ski hills shut down if it gets too cold in Banff and Lake Louise

DeanT - Posted - 12/07/2016:  10:17:12


nothing yet... still waiting....

OM45GE - Posted - 12/07/2016:  12:39:13


Sorry Dean. I may have to resend if we get more snow this winter.

What is "too cold"?

chuckv97 - Posted - 12/07/2016:  12:47:30


I think it's temp and wind combination. My daughters worked and snowboarded there. I think it's 0-5*F, depending on the wind mph. Otherwise there are too many frostbite cases ,or worse.

I went skiing at Mount Cranmore in New Hampshire one day when it was -10 F and a 40 + MPH wind blowing. I was dressed properly and was actually quite comfortable. I didn't have the mountain to myself, but it was pretty close. I didn't wait in any lift lines.

DeanT - Posted - 12/07/2016:  13:59:07


just a little flurry today... nothing but a dusting.... send more snow!!!

chuckv97 - Posted - 12/07/2016:  16:20:20


How 'bout contacting your relatives in Michigan? I can't send any across the border.

DeanT - Posted - 12/07/2016:  16:58:52


My sister just moved to Wichita from Michigan... for milder winters...

OM45GE - Posted - 12/07/2016:  17:47:54


Well, it's a step in the right direction.   

DeanT - Posted - 12/07/2016:  19:04:17


Her and my wife both love Kansas weather... Too hot for me, and never cold enough or enough snow in the winter

OM45GE - Posted - 12/08/2016:  02:58:45


I love New England weather. Nice summers, great winter weather and beautiful fall foliage  



 

chuckv97 - Posted - 12/08/2016:  03:39:20


I don't mind the cold if it's sunny and calm out

OM45GE - Posted - 12/08/2016:  05:01:05


I like the cold if I have the right gear. I HATE having to to mechanical work when it's cold. I did a brake job in the driveway one bitter winter day and was miserable. When I was trucking, I did tire changes, light repairs, brake adjustments, etc. in the winter and they were almost as bad.

DeanT - Posted - 12/08/2016:  06:28:30


I hate Kansas summers WAY worse than the worst Michigan Lake effect winters. 

OM45GE - Posted - 12/08/2016:  10:25:36


We're close to the ocean here (20 mile inland) so, while we get hot and steamy days, they don't last long. It's warm enough for shorts and sandals but you're not baking.



I figure you can always put on enough clothes to stay warm but you can't always take off enough to stay cool.



 

DeanT - Posted - 12/08/2016:  13:19:56


The A/C bill is one of the worst parts of the Kansas heat...

OM45GE - Posted - 12/09/2016:  12:11:31


I bet

chuckv97 - Posted - 12/09/2016:  12:38:05


Heating bills can get huge here...lately it's been -30*C at night, -20 daytime. Colder than usual , but not unexpected

OM45GE - Posted - 12/09/2016:  12:43:42


That's a bit on the nippy side.

DeanT - Posted - 12/09/2016:  15:59:51


that's one good thing about Kansas... heating bills are never very much...

chuckv97 - Posted - 12/09/2016:  16:02:57


Once we get more snow it insulates the roof and foundation , then it's easier to heat

DeanT - Posted - 12/09/2016:  17:38:13


our snow never lasts much past noon

dmiller - Posted - 12/09/2016:  17:48:27


The pitch on my roof is 12/ 12, so any snow we get blows off of it pretty easily.  The pitch on the garage (however), is only about a 4 or 5/ 12 pitch.  I've had to shovel that roof off several times.  Shoveling a roof is no fun!

OM45GE - Posted - 12/10/2016:  04:28:44


We live in a ranch house so I can clean the roof with a 25' roof snow rake. We've got a good pitch to the roof but the house faces south east and when a nor'easter blows in the snow can pile up on the front roof. 



 

chuckv97 - Posted - 12/10/2016:  06:30:19


All this winter talk gets me itching to head south

DeanT - Posted - 12/10/2016:  06:58:17


I wouldn't mind pitching a few snowballs... but our snow storm was a bust...

OM45GE - Posted - 12/10/2016:  10:38:34


Our next storm is tomorrow night but it doesn't look big. 

DeanT - Posted - 12/10/2016:  12:03:15


we get nothng... they are saying back to the 50 degrees

OM45GE - Posted - 12/10/2016:  13:45:04


We may have to truck snow in if we want a white Christmas.

DeanT - Posted - 12/10/2016:  15:06:37


we get more snow from the cotton woods trees...

OM45GE - Posted - 12/10/2016:  17:35:16


I was just reading about the making of the movie "A Christmas Story" and they said they had to truck snow in for some scenes and used foam for snow in others. 

chuckv97 - Posted - 12/10/2016:  17:40:38


At the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver they had to truck snow down from the higher elevations due to a milder than usual winter

OM45GE - Posted - 12/10/2016:  17:41:21


I remember that. 

DeanT - Posted - 12/11/2016:  06:35:52


I remember that too, at the ski jump it looked like they were landing in mud

OM45GE - Posted - 12/12/2016:  03:18:40


A few of the ski areas around here vie to stay open the latest in the year. Sometimes skiers have to walk a long way from the end of the snow to the lift. Not easy in ski boots. 

OM45GE - Posted - 12/12/2016:  03:22:23


The warm weather does bring out some attractive ski clothing.

Some gals look good in snow

OM45GE - Posted - 12/12/2016:  07:31:59


She's patriotic too.
