My wife found the Snow Panic Scale and this is the ONLY time she has logged onto the Forum to check Postings! Maybe the corruption begins...

You left out the west. The inner-west is a lot like the Midwest. The region east of the Cascades to the Rockies get quite cold winters. We are about a mile from the only sea level opening between the interior west and coastal region between Los Angeles and the Arctic Circle. In the winter we get some bitterly cold winds.

West of the Cascades is much more exaggerated than the South. People in Portland and Seattle curl up into fetal balls as soon as the first snow flake falls.


Living now in Vancouver, WA after living in Vermont it was interesting to watch the TV news last night reporting such disasters as "snow starting to stick to the concrete" and "accumulations in some spots may exceed two inches". This morning confirmed these nightmares.

Seems to me Puxatawny Phil (or however you spell it there in PA [which I can spell]) said something about 6 more weeks of winter. So much for rodent weather forecasts.

Well his alternate forecast is for another 40 days of Winter. Feb.2 is about six weeks before March 21st (official Spring) is it not?
The forecast is rigged!

I spent my first seven years in Pittsburgh. Naturally I loved all the snow we got there. That was followed by 6 years in central Illinois. Somewhat disappointed. Then til now St. Louis. Very disappointed, some years no measurable snow at all. But it is getting worse, global warming is turning St. Louis into a Southern city. The official planting zone maps have changed to where Missouri is where Arkansas used to be. That means the date you first dare to plant and the date you better have harvested by and in some cases, the species of plants you can successfully grow have changed.

There's an addendum to that. I used to grow a lot of okra. Now as you know that is very popular in Louisiana and Mississippi and I had no difficulty. The trick with okra is picking it before it ripens, similar to picking green bell peppers before they ripen (and turn red or yellow) and to jalapenos which should be picked while they are green and unripe; they get milder when they turn red, and less crunchy. The last year I grew okra there was no good time to harvest, the pods were like wood and inedible even when unripe. I don't happen to know how it went south of me, maybe they had more humidity and that made a difference?

Okra and Jalepenos are like veal and lamb, you cannot wait for it to ripen.

Okra!?!? - that is sufficient to explain Gorn cantankerousness.

And five inches, no plows in Minnesota's Win City area today - BAD, BAD local officials.

Ah, gorns don't seem to know everything about Earth flora, I see.

Green bell peppers remain green - they don't turn red or yellow (at least not completely). Red and yellow (and orange and purple) bell peppers, however, will change colors and you shouldn't pick them until they do as you are likely growing them for their sweeter flavor in the first place.

Jalapenos take a very long time to turn red - they stay green for quite a while.

We grow okra in Maryland. It grows very fast here. We had so many from just 4 plants last year that we pickled about a gallon's worth. It took a while to learn that they should be picked at 4 inches or so, which apparently happens in less than a week for us.

Been hearing reports of blizzards all week here in London. The trains were jammed at 5:30 with hordes trying to get home early last night, as they called an end to transport on some lines at 8pm.

So far we've had about 1/8 of an inch!!

It was pretty today, right around 0 C and off and on clear, but everyone is still in a bit of a panic. I wish they'd panic enough to cancel school!!

I've seen most of those with Minnesota or Maine (not the Detroit, but the rest).
And WHICH -2??? Canada -2 is Celsius. And freezing is NOT cold, that is just the temperature water turns to ice.

-2 F - now that is CHILLY. Not stupid cold (where F and C are the same -40 - THAT is stupid cold), but distinctly chilly.

The temperature record in Germany was apparently at Funtensee (Funten Lake), a small lake in the Bavarian Alps, where it went down to -41 deg Celsius. Outside of the Alps, there was a place near the German-Czech border where they had -27 degrees. And the folks on the Baltic coast had -20 as well as "lake effect" snowfalls. At least, this time, no overland high-tension line collapsed due to ice accretion (this happened a few years ago, on a length of some 20 kilometers).

I was at -40 C in NEW YORK! Don't they have mountains in Germany? OK - Alps, but the Adirondacks aren't really high - I thought the Alps were high.

Laplanders plant flowers.
+5°C Laplanders take a sun bath, if the sun still gets above the horizon.

Laplanders eat ice and drink chilled beer.
-4°C The cat wants to join you in bed.
-10°C Time to plan a vacation in Africa.
Laplanders go for a swim.
-12°C Too cold for snowfall.
-15°C American cars won't start up any more.
-18°C Helsinki landlords switch on the heating plant.

-26°C Building blocks for igloos can be cut out of your breath.
-29°C The cat wants to join you in your pyjamas.
-30°C German cars won't start up any more.
Laplanders curse, kick the tyres and fire up their Ladas (Russian car make).
-31°C Too cold for kissing, as lips will freeze together.
Lapland soccer teams start spring training.
-35°C Time to plan a two-week-long hot bath.
Laplanders shovel snow off their roofs.
-39°C Mercury freezes. Too cold to think.
Laplanders close the top shirt button.

Laplanders put on sweaters.

(This is not strictly scientifically correct, but you get the drift...)
