just watching the news and weather and they say its -24,  the lowest its been around here since 1968. they could not say what it was with the wind chill but im sure " dam cold" would be an understatement, what they are saying to get the point out to the weaker minds is that it is dangerous to be outside today

is that celsius?

 

It was -4F here this morning... colder than our homes are designed for. I had one water freeze up last night.

It was 64 in the house this morning a 0600 when I got up. It is now 1400 and bright sunny out. The solar heating has got it up to 73. I will start up the wood furnace in another hour to make sure it doesn't get too cold inside tonight. It is weather like this that makes me glad to have a wood furnace in the basement and a woodstove in the living room. The power system is at risk in this weather and the wood and solar are independant of the power grid. Good Luck and keep warm, Rick

It was 6 degrees this morning here in Atlanta Ga but that sounds balmy compared to what you're dealing with. Don't think I could handle that kind of cold, bloods too thin. I'm sure global warming has something to do with it.

Really cold here, but no snow like up north I81 north is closed from exit 34 in ny to the border, and from Watertown down to exit 31 due to the snow, wind, and cold up there. Almost everything was closed due to the cold.

Yep, had the cold and big snows here now and today Sunny and up to 1*.  Supposed to "warm" up all night and into next day up to 20 or so and then friday, upper 30's with RAIN!  Sheesh. My town is still all shut down from all this. Had frozen pipes last night, they thawed with some heaters and no damage that I know. I checked all over with my temp sensor laser and never could find anyplace colder than 43* on any pipes I could see, so not sure where or why it froze. Mystery! Electric Bill next month probly be a killer!

Near 20 today and Sunny! Kinda "Balmy" then?  Getting warmer tommorrow. Worked last night, first day they ran lines all night after slow start. Many people STILL not driving to work, roads not being worked on. They should be out on them today.  Kids still out of school, because of bad drifted county roads and such. Hoosiers are kinda Wimpy in winter it seems. (I'm orig from WI). NOW, we are working this Saturday to catch up and Most will be just reg pay, no OT because we didn't work 40hrs.  People not happy. "Gotta build the Trucks"!

All-time Record Coldest Temperature Ever Recorded in Louisville is -22 Degrees

The coldest temperature ever officially recorded in Louisville is -22 degrees, which occurred on January 19, 1994.

 

BUT, back in the early to mid 80's, it got down to -22F here in my county. Dad pulled me on the Massey 175 2 miles to get it started.  It never did, but when we made the return trip, it started immediately. That was the coldest I ever got, as on the way out, we were against a 20+mph headwind.

The coldest temperature ever officially recorded in the state of Kentucky is -37 degrees, which occurred on January 19, 1994, in Shelbyville. The city of Shelbyville is located only about 35 miles east of Louisville, and the state record for Kentucky was set on the same date Louisville set its coldest temperature record.

Sardinia Ohio is about 1 1/2 hour from Louisville, first time it had ever hit that low before also.

Just finished outside, warmed up to mabey 15 at the highest, yesterday it hovered at 5 and below all night and day.

I really feel for you guys out there in this 8 hours a day, frost bite temp are killers, bundle up and be very careful, please, i do not want to find out here someone froze to death.

Daniel, i have been lucky in the past but your kind of work puts you out there every day, all day, make sure everything is covered and if your fingers/toes start to hurt, drop everything and warm them up.

Trowel, I'm not outside all day, but every day.  I can come in whenever I need to, so no danger here.  Yesterday though, I did have to go inside the milk parlor once & spray my insulated boots with hot water, as my toes were freezing.  The guys that have it rough are linemen repairing electric lines.  Up in the air for hours at a time.......brutal job in extreme weather!

Jesse, my memory is slow to catch up.  Helps when first name is in signature line.  After a while seeing it, then it sinks into my head.
