What is this??? :hmm: 🤣
Here in the US, whenever snow is in the forecast, whether it’s two inches or 12, people go crazy and stock up on “bread and milk” as if they will be stuck in their homes for days on end and will have nothing to eat, lol. This guy makes a joke out of it. He’s been a stand up comic for years and it wasn’t until he started posting these silly videos that he’s become quite popular. 😁

Aha, got it.😁 Here we have the same story with grechka (buckwheat). If rouble falls down, they think that a hungry winter is coming, and start stocking up on buckwheat (though barley is a lot cheaper:iiam:). Plus, in soviet times, the second "essential product" was tushonka (canned beef). These two products are supposed to maintain life during the apocalypse (at least, that's what people think). :lol:

I just closed the door behind me, shaking out the rug so I could clean the entrance, and it immediately started to storm!
Rained or sleet sideways for like 5 min, now it's all over....
I really need at least two new tires if I'm gonna keep my car....

It's snowing here too (since yesterday morning). Nevertheless, the most irritating things are not the blizzard and the icy wind that are making you bend up while walking, ...It's 95%-100% humidity. The nasty combination of all of the above gives you TZYPKI😡 (bleeding fractures on hands). I have both tzypki and hangnails. [Hangnails are almost gone though, except one finger]. Humidity is responsible for COPD exacerbation. Therefore, Unghshu is drinking liters and liters of my magic potion. Curcumin with black pepper is not enough now, and i have to splurge on acethylcysteine, that i can't afford.:pout:

We got a coating of ice and zero snow from yesterday and last night’s act 1 of the nor’easter. Act two will likely be the same.

This should probably go in the gripe thread, but why is “the weather channel” app allowed to post specific forecasts for a specific town, that are continually off the mark? I get that when the forecast for a region...like a specific county or region, that the results can be different based on elevation and other factors. But my app hones in on my actual town. The description of what’s going to happen shouldn’t be do with that generalizes for a region that spans a few hundred miles. It becomes useless.

I’m learning to look at the radar pictures instead of going by the description. But that’s absurd to me. When I plug in my town it should give me results for my town, not lump me in with other surrounding areas.
Me thinks I need to get a life, or move to Antarctica during the Winter months, the way other people move South, lol. 😂

Imagine how cool that would be...warm climate for six months and cold climate for the other six. Although I would miss Fall. Is there someplace that has extended fall weather? Then I could do four months in each.

Is that a good news or a bad news?:???: (I'm unable to understand, even based on your previous post. Sorry, i'm extremely dumb these days,- maybe because i'm anxious before Wednesday).:hide:
Any day with no work is a good day. 😁
We have a really good inclement weather policy where I work. Employees can choose to stay home anytime the weather is severe and not use their accruals (vacation or personal time). They then have three weeks to make up the time they took off by either coming in early, staying late, or taking only half of their lunchtime. It’s a pretty sweet deal so that you can save your vacation and personal time for more fun things.

LOL, we got the same! All these towns that aren't too far from me got 5 to 8 inches. I feel cheated. :D We are supposed to get 1 to 3 inches today and tomorrow. We will see. It does gall me that at one point they were predicting 6 to 12 inches for my area. Like, way to hype/scare us with that nonsense. People make plans or cancel plans based on the forecasts.

According to the weather experts it’s been snowing since 8 am. Let me tell you. It is not. LOL.
I get that the forecasters can’t always be right, but we have what they call “nowcasters”...they’re not right either! I just don’t understand.

I think I need an intervention. I can’t seem to leave this alone and I’m not sure why it bothers me so much. 🤷‍♀️

LOL!, I am the same way, and I think it's because I wanted to spend more time with my family this weekend, and it annoyed me that the weather peeps were so wrong. It was supposed to start late in the morning on Sunday, but nothing happened until 3 in the afternoon. I totally could have stayed over and got home in time to put up the tree and work. Oh well.

All this snow drama! :D The "wintery mix" is the worst! I hope you snow lovers get your snow but not too much! Just be careful driving in that slippery stuff! It was chilly here today! I think it didn't even get to 60! The sun was shining though and it was warm, but the wind was very cold. It is only going to be in the upper 30's in the morning. I don't work until 9:45 (weird time) so it will have warmed up a little.

I absolutely agree! Our forecasters make it sound like the end of the world for the whole area so often. It's so different if it's lake effect snow, winds, or cold.Cleveland been lucky with being in a kind of valley, we've escaped the worst. We do have a 'snow belt' that gets plummeted just south east!

That's a wonderful policy! we're only allowed to make up 4 hours in the same week, and the least amount of PTO we can use is 4 hours!
They refuse to acknowledge we need personal time, not just vacation time.Like if you have an emergency they'll "allow" you to leave, but it still gets held against you
