@ 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)

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!

I need coffee bad. I read this thing at the top of Topix 3 times about a "hairy human" face and wondered why they are now trying to create a discussion on Harry Truman ?

You could be right about the Harry Truman subject but who knows why. On the other hand it may be a discussion about better halfs winter beard.
Btw. Have a wonderful day!

Hope their power is back on by now. Weather there is way to cold not to have heat.

I am not a scanner or whatever. I was sincere about my questions regarding the frost booms. I have been reading this thread from day one. Earthquakes and other issues are the original foundation of beginning conversations here. Any thoughts or understanding of the boom sounds that preceded other major earthquakes in history?

They are being heard regularly in the far western part of the state, new reports pretty regularly. There are all kinds of explanations for it but NONE fit. The latest thing is "frost quakes" but that is not what they are because the same thing is heard in the middle of summmer. Prior to the big 1811 & 1812 quakes that hit around the New Madrid epicenter loud "booms" were heard for a while. I heard one of the BIG "boom" a few weeks ago. They sound like a huge explosion. More were reported yesterday that rattled houses. One report said 5-6 booms were heard about 5 or so minutes apart. No doubt something is going on and nobody knows what.

You're welcome. Check out some of the TOPIX sites for the local towns in far Western KY and you will see people talking about hearing the "booms" lately. Some were heard yesterday. You are right, we all need to be as prepared as possible. That site above describes those earthquakes of 1811-1812 and what people had to do to survive, how wide spread the damage was, etc. Interesting and could be a little scary to think about being caught in the middle of it! I'm glad I know my Savior!

They were without power from Tuesday evening until Friday afternoon and we went yesterday morning to the grocery to restock and they are as happy now as 2 kittens playing with a ball of yarn.

I am glad you know our Savior, but I have never heard any booms in my area so I suppose I am not that scared. I suppose I would be if it actually happened here. What concerns me more is the fast approaching tornado season such as the one that I survived on April 3, 1974 when about 50 houses and several people in my neighborhood did not.

Thank you for helping them. They are close to my parents age if my parents were still living and I would've certainly appreciated help for them under the same circumstances.
It's 8:30pm here (1:30am there) and I'm exhausted. Today I met a gentleman that was in the Navy and on Ford Island in Pearl Harbor that December 7.
