He's a good man. Yes, the children who have to walk to school or walk to the bus and wait in the cold. : (
 Quoting: Simple27


Sorry, I think when the temps are this cold, school should be cancelled but then I am a wuss when it comes to sudden cold. Only two days ago we were in the 70's! Hello.

Can you imagine just how cold it would be if it wasn't for global warming, rofl
 Quoting: whiteangel


Growing up in Montana I remember school being canceled only once and that was due to power outage from an ice storm. We started school late a couple times since the buses were running late due to slick roads. Around here, they usually never cancel school, at least for the kids living in town. For the kids out of town, if the roads are bad the buses will not run so they're excused. By bad roads, I mean buses with tire chains are unable to drive down the road, so they have to be really bad. If the schools do anything they won't allow the kids to go outside for recess and I believe it has to be below 15* or maybe 0* before the do that.

Only 1 above and -6 wind chill. I expected colder. We are likely to break the record high low. It was 9 before and today isn't suppose to get above 4. Burrrrrrr

Omg! You've had a HUGE temp drop over the past few days! It's 50 degrees here right now and will get up to 60 by early afternoon. The fog is still creepy but the temp is nice at least.

That is just too cold!! Try to stay warm over there!

 Quoting: Simple27


It was -2* on my way to work this morning. 9* when I drove home. -4* right now with wind chill pushing it to -16*. This is about a month early...

Supposed to get even colder tonight and we are not forecast to go above freezing until next Tuesday (high of 35).

Oh well, not anything I can do about it other than bundle up and make sure I warm my vehicle up before I leave. Thank you remote start!

I filled up the car this afternoon. Gas was $2.99 at a Shell. I had to double check to make sure what year it was. Almost made me wish I had a big huge SUV or a lifted truck to fill up. I went in and bought a lotto ticket a pepperoni stick and some beer with my extra $15. So I guess I really didn't save any money then.

 Quoting: AKObserver


Regular unleaded is $2.99 here too I think. I drive a diesel so not sure. I can tell you that diesel hasn't dropped hardly at all. I think maybe 15 or 20 cents. Very irritating if you ask me! Diesel is a by-product of gasoline production! Why wouldn't diesel go down the same as gas? That's a rhetorical question. I know it's because of all the big rigs running diesel and that the demand is always there regardless of prices so the oil companies won't lower the price as much due to that.

The First Steamboat on the Western Waters Survived the Earthquakes

The first steamboat travel on the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers took place during the New Madrid earthquakes. The New Orleans set out from Pittsburgh on October 20, 1811, bound for New Orleans. Captain Nicholas Roosevelt had brought along his young wife, their two year old daughter, and a Labrador dog. Ten days after leaving Pittsburgh, his wife Lydia gave birth to a son in Louisville, Kentucky. They waited a while for her to recover, and for the water to rise prior to crossing the dangerous waters and coral reef at the Falls of the Ohio. On the night before the day of the earthquake, December 16, the steamboat was anchored near Owensboro, Kentucky, about 200 miles east of New Madrid, Missouri. Their dog, Tiger, insisted on staying in the cabin with them instead of sleeping on the deck.

Without realizing it, they were heading straight towards the epicenter of the greatest earthquake in American history. Their steamboat, intended to be an advertisement for steam travel, was thought instead to be the cause of the earthquake by many who saw it. At Henderson, Kentucky, where no chimneys were left standing, they stopped to visit their friends, the painter John James Audubon and his wife Lucy. Floating in the middle of the Ohio River they were protected from the earthquake tremors shaking the land, but not from the hazards of falling trees, disappearing islands, and collapsing river banks. After entering Indian Territory on December 18th, they were chased by Indians who figured the “fire canoe” had caused the earthquake, but they managed to escape capture by outrunning them. They even had a small cabin fire that night which they managed to put out.

Thousands of trees were floating on the waters of the Mississippi as they approached New Madrid on December 19th, three days after the earthquake. They found that the town of New Madrid had been destroyed. They didn’t dare to stop and pick up a few survivors, for fear of being overrun, and they were without supplies. Most alarming was the fact that they had not seen a boat ascending the river in three days. They saw wrecked and abandoned boats. It was undoubtedly a miracle that they survived and kept on going. They tied up at one island, and the island sank during the night. Their dog, Tiger, alerted them to oncoming tremors. On December 22, they encountered the British naturalist John Bradbury on a boat at the mouth of the St. Francis River, who told them the town of Big Prairie was gone.

They arrived at Natchez, Mississippi on December 30 and celebrated the first marriage aboard a steamboat on December 31st, when the steamboat engineer married Lydia’s maid. They arrived at New Orleans on January 10, 1812, safe and sound, after traveling 1,900 miles from Pittsburgh on the first steamboat to travel the western waters.

Captain Nicholas Roosevelt had brought along his young wife, their two year old daughter, and a Labrador dog. Ten days after leaving Pittsburgh, his wife Lydia gave birth to a son in Louisville, Kentucky. They waited a while for her to recover, and for the water to rise prior to crossing the dangerous waters and coral reef at the Falls of the Ohio. On the night before the day of the earthquake, December 16, the steamboat was anchored near Owensboro, Kentucky, about 200 miles east of New Madrid, Missouri. Their dog, Tiger, insisted on staying in the cabin with them instead of sleeping on the deck.

Without realizing it, they were heading straight towards the epicenter of the greatest earthquake in American history. Their steamboat, intended to be an advertisement for steam travel, was thought instead to be the cause of the earthquake by many who saw it. At Henderson, Kentucky, where no chimneys were left standing, they stopped to visit their friends, the painter John James Audubon and his wife Lucy. Floating in the middle of the Ohio River they were protected from the earthquake tremors shaking the land, but not from the hazards of falling trees, disappearing islands, and collapsing river banks. After entering Indian Territory on December 18th, they were chased by Indians who figured the “fire canoe” had caused the earthquake, but they managed to escape capture by outrunning them. They even had a small cabin fire that night which they managed to put out.

Thousands of trees were floating on the waters of the Mississippi as they approached New Madrid on December 19th, three days after the earthquake. They found that the town of New Madrid had been destroyed. They didn’t dare to stop and pick up a few survivors, for fear of being overrun, and they were without supplies. Most alarming was the fact that they had not seen a boat ascending the river in three days. They saw wrecked and abandoned boats. It was undoubtedly a miracle that they survived and kept on going. They tied up at one island, and the island sank during the night. Their dog, Tiger, alerted them to oncoming tremors. On December 22, they encountered the British naturalist John Bradbury on a boat at the mouth of the St. Francis River, who told them the town of Big Prairie was gone.

They arrived at Natchez, Mississippi on December 30 and celebrated the first marriage aboard a steamboat on December 31st, when the steamboat engineer married Lydia’s maid. They arrived at New Orleans on January 10, 1812, safe and sound, after traveling 1,900 miles from Pittsburgh on the first steamboat to travel the western waters.
