Do not go in your car to get warm. If you fall asleep snow can cover you tailpipe and you will die. If you lose power gather all in one room as people and animals. load up on blankets. it will be fine. i live much more north than you and this is what happens sometimes if not worse for us.

Here's a glimmer of good news...

Took out my pancake style Geiger Counter and tested for Fuku radiation...

The snow is not radioactive...

did you check it for flesh eating bacteria ? this blast of water is off the gulf. corexit and shit.

at least its not radioactive. I do however enjoy glowing snowmen on a cold dark night.

Why am I awake? Anyway, western OK here, lights are good, so far, praying it stays that way.
Earlier I looked out the window, couldn't see, I'm thinking 'no way it's snowing that hard.' My inner intelligence says "open the window" so I listened, pile of snow fell in spilling onto the floor. See if I listen to my idiotic self again. :) Obviously couldn't see out the window because it was the North side of the house where the blowing snow was hitting. It's currently -2 F degrees Feels like -26 F. Roads are slicker than oil on a marble floor, blowing snow isn't helping. That 8 vehicle accident in OKC was more than I needed to see. Poor souls. Stay safe, and don't venture out.

^^^Not exactly true. Comments like this could cause folks to die.^^^
However, it’s important to not run the vehicle if the tailpipe is blocked by snow or ice. Carbon monoxide can be deadly, so if the tailpipe can’t be unblocked, don’t run the vehicle. Wrap yourself in blankets and put on extra clothing if available. Even if the tailpipe isn’t blocked, don’t run the heater constantly as this can drain fuel. Intermittently turn it on to warm up but also crack open a window just to make sure there aren’t deadly fumes gathering inside the vehicle.

Yes. A few yrs back, 3 young women died from carbon monoxide poisoning after they tried to run their car during the late night hours in the Squaw Valley parking lot in a snowstorm. With heavy snowfall, the tailpipe became encased in snow and the exhaust fumes inevitably made their way into the passenger compartment of the car.

A very sad tragedy.

Statistically the real danger in cold weather (besides exposure) is traffic incidents and fire.

Lots of people are going to be hooking up space heaters through five extension cords and all other kinds of dumb shit.

Stay home and use common sense. If you got an old 1979 Sears space heater you are about to hook up through a daisy chain of cat chewed 2 pronged Christmas lights to heat up your bathroom you prolly gonna have a bad day.

Use yer noggin. That’s why God gave you one.

Stay warm peeps. Layer up. Stay indoors to keep warm. But get some fresh air inbetween.

It was literally zero degrees in the 1970s.

Most important that the vehicle is pointed into the wind. The exhaust system is built to carry fumes out the back as you drive forward. However, if you are parked with the wind coming from the rear that is when you will die from carbon monoxide.

They are going to kill people. It's too dangerous to do these rolling blackouts with zero warning. For people like me, it's an inconvenience, but for the sick and elderly, it is a death sentence. I'm so mad.
