    Ok, this is rather pointless bitching thread, but here in Texas the temperature has dropped nearly 50 degrees in less than 24 hours.

    Yesterday was 85. Right now it is 39.

    Looks like most of the country is experiencing a variation of this, albeit less extreme I would imagine.

    brrrr. Now where's my heavy coat?

    comments? Commiseration?

    I'm enjoying the 66 degree weather as long as I can. It's a bit windy and cloudy right now, but it's still better than the bitter cold that's coming tomorrow. I have to admit that it was nice to be able to not have to use the heat for the last couple of days... :(

    Yes, I was definitely enjoying the warm weather. Yesterday it was 70 here. Today it is barely 30. (actually it's only 20 right now, but it's supposed to get warmer.)

    Not to get off-topic... but did I miss the memo on having black eye patches on your avatar?? I know I don't have one yet (avatar, I mean), but there are a lot of eye patches going around I'm starting to wonder whether MR causes eye problems.... :eek: :cool:

    Yeah, here it just dropped 14 degrees in the last 3 hours... too bad we won't get much (if any) snow out of it.

    I don't know if it causes it, but it at least contributes to it.

    Oh, and it's supposed to be below zero here tomorrow. Should be a fun run in the morning.

    Aqaujet, I'm here (below):

    pivo6, I remember that cold. I went to HS in wisconsin. I still remember it being -80 (w/windchill). Still a 50 degree drop is stark.

    A 50 degree drop is a lot, but you're still 40 degress warmer than I am! :eek:

    There is a thread - something to do with pirates - do a search. Haven't read it, though, so I am not sure if it will be helpful.

    Pretty sure the Demis got together on the private forums and came up with this latest expression of genius.

    I have no idea what you are talking about. Mostly because I can't see who I am talking to. :cool:

    Despite living in the Midwest for 16 years with some quite chilly winters with lots of wonderful snow, since I moved out here to CA almost six years ago my tolerance for temperatures below 55º has dropped to nil. I've always liked it on the warm side but it seems the SF Bay has spoiled me. :rolleyes:
