We had unseasonable cold in VT over the holiday. Lost power on Thanksgiving for about an hour right after dark, just as I was starting to plate the food. Luckily my old man had a stash of shabbos candles on hand... but somehow they started getting distributed around the house, burning, on fucking pieces of cardboard. Gonna have to talk to my folks about basic safety. Iím one more incident from suggesting that we need to pay someone to be there with them when Iím not.[/tj]

Been super cold here too lately.

Denver got two snows already
The mtns have been getting slammed. Couple slopes opened early.
I drove back from Vegas with a friend and got to Eagle, CO like 20-30 miles west of Vail and it was white out conditions. They closed the Vail pass around 1030 and we didnít make it time slept at my friends spot in Vail village for the night. Woke up it was still pounding. They got like 6-8 inches between those two days wish I could have stayed to hit the slopes.

I don't remember the last time we got solid snow like this by mid Nov.
The hills should be open by first week of December.
Instead of having to plan and save for your next vacation, why not work on creating a life you don't feel the need to escape from...

I suspect putin and trump have something to do with this
that's great. people are stupid.

yikes
we've had a ton of rain here (my least favorite weather is 40 deg and rainy) but nothing like what you guys have had to deal with.

good luck sunrise - taking care of parents is not fun

On the other hand, 50ish Fahrenheit and rainy is perfect 'Driving around listening to Use Your Illusion II' weather.

Give yourself a couple of years for your body to adjust. You'll be freezing your ass off when its in the 60's.

I have still not gotten used to this Florida weather. It was 37 when I woke up and didn't get much over 45 during the day. And I'm regretting wearing pants, my employees are all bundled up!

I moved from Maine to Georgia 3 years ago. Below 60 and I'm freaking cold. Below 50 is just ridiculous.

North Carolina when it snowed was fucking hilarious to this Vermonter. And a little scary.

Still waiting for the first real snow in Indiana, i.e. the day each year when they wipe everyone's minds and no one remembers how to drive.
