Interesting night and day.. I had to cut on a tree that had iced over and fallen and blocked my road so I could get out. It had uprooted from a higher level bank and was arched over the road, so I cut off the lower limbs and drove under the arches... Not McDonald's or St. Louis. lol

@ Anne.....The Belle robbed channel 5's U.S. weather map the other night and loaded it onto my favorites column. After checking the temp's around the country, I've gotta ask: How did you like Chi-town's 1*? Not much, I'll bet. But that's not as bad as Montana's -13*. I think back of waiting out along side the highway for that ___ school bus with the wind biting my ears so bad they felt warm. I read that every other day they close the schools if it just frosts real bad. HA..!! They never closed schools in Illinois that I remember. Just put chains on the back tires.

When we lived in Wyoming, schools allowed students to take off for fall hunting but put a notice in the paper that country parents should find a place in town for their students to stay during inclement weather as school wouldn't be cancelled.

Ohare can be bitter, but I once got stranded overnight in Minn.-St. Paul and that would have been even worse except the airlines paid for a nice hotel and a good meal. I have no desire to go to any place warm and then have to return..... If I went, I would just stay. LOL

I have an 80+ year old couple that have been without electric since Tuesday evening. Three of the local churches have set up warming centers, but so far they have refused my offer to go after them.

They never closed school here back in the day either and no one ever drove the children to school, nor did the school bus come down the road to the homestead. We had to walk out to the main highway and stand in the cold to wait for the bus. But that is where I gained an interest in the Civil War. The old maid (reminds me of Miss Emily and Miss Mamie Baldwin of the Walton's program) that lived out at the end of the road would let us come in to warm sometimes, and her father was an Aide to Robt. E. Lee and we missed the bus a few times listening to her stories about what a great man General Lee had been.(but we did not mind, but for some unknown reason our parents did ... LOL)

What does everyone here think of the "frost booms" reported in West Ky and other areas? I have been reading of how such were heard prior to other major earthquakes in history. Any thoughts from the group or others who know? I am stepping up preparedness.

Those cold, cold days you speak of were just as educational as a full day of school! For sure, your love of history was born while waiting for that bus.
My long walk was about 1,200 feet and then I could wait in my grandparents warm/dry house. Sometimes grandpa would polish an apple so very shiny for me to take to the teacher! Years later Mom told me the real reason for those apples. Seems like I'd grown weary of school and the teachers apple was a ploy to get me headed to school with less fuss! Worked too!
