Are you close to the coast?  The storm is supposed to stick to the coast with no danger inland. It'll stay dry here in the northern part of the state.
Yes, on the coast. The funny thing is, if it does snow enough to accumulate (last happened in 1989) it will melt in a few hours.

Wind Chill temperatures at 4:30PM today, which is generally the warmest point of the day.



Why Do Pipes Burst ?
« Reply #92 on: January 02, 2018, 06:49:34 PM »
Cold weather can cause serious issues when it affects the water supply pipes in your home. Although cold temperatures generally cause things to contract, ice has more volume than water so when water freezes inside a pipe, it expands and increases pressure inside the pipe. The building pressure needs to escape so it literally bursts right out of the pipe. This sometimes occurs at a weak joint in the pipe but pressure can burst right out the side of the pipe wall. One way to prevent water pipes from bursting during extreme cold is to turn on your faucets to allow a slow but steady stream of water to escape. This will keep water moving through the pipes and, most importantly, prevent pressure from building up inside. To prevent frozen pipes, Insulate exposed water supply pipes with foam pipe sleeves and dont allow the temperature in the house to fall below 55 degrees Fahrenheit. Open cabinet doors below sinks to allow warm air to circulate around pipes.

Ill take a couple of buckets of global warming if it keeps us from getting as cold as it did in 1983.

Frozen pipes did more damage than hurricane Alicia in Aug 83.

Here is an article about how bad it hurt the fishing.

I'm hearing 3-6 inches now.   It has been cold enough even down there for it to stick.

-34C?  That's pretty close to the magic -40 where F & C are the same.

Yuck, don't use the weather channel's storm names. Its just a gimmick to drive page views to their website.

That's a pet peeve of mine too.  I never use their shitty names for storms. Just another reason why accuweather is now my go to weather source.

It's a balmy 32 degrees F at 3 this afternoon.  I'm ready for the January thaw.  Cold is no fun when there is no snow.
