Had our Polar Vortex last week. On the coldest day, I turned over the car engines three times, just to be safe.
Today, I went for my (not quite as) daily (these days) walks, despite it being 4 degrees. I cut it my walk short, and just as well, since my face was freezing something fierce. Maybe I should buy a balaclava.
If you want something done, it's going to take time. If you want something done RIGHT, it's going to take longer.
During the vortex, we only hit about -3 in Pittsburgh here. (Nothing like the mid west got.) I had to work at the library, and because I live only three blocks away... I walked to work. It was surprisingly busy. After the vortex, it was surprisingly slow... Only dealing with the usual crazies, mobsters and MAGA-hats. (Triple redundancy, I know.)

We've not been above freezing for the last couple weeks up here in Washington state, and it dropped to single digits but didn't quite hit the negatives. However, we probably had about a foot of snow dumped on us, a couple days of clear, and another foot dumped after that, with even more forecasted for the rest of the week.
Makes me glad we're heading out for our Disneyworld vacation over in Florida soon. The farmers may appreciate the build up of the snowpack in the mountains for irrigation, but it's lousy to deal with when you're in the middle of it.
EDIT: Also, my backyard right now. Please note the above mentioned foot hasn't hit yet.
Optimal Megatron: I'd consider buying that. I mean, visually, it's cool. It's just....does it need to be a small child?

iacon45: Wonder if Haslab Unicron fails, if they might try to a more scaled down release.

iacon45: I'm about to give up on the rainmaker set. Can't afford it now if it was available though.

iacon45: I was about to give up on Siege Micromasters but decided to pick up the Off Road team pack since they were a favorite back in the day. Weapon mode aside, these two restored my faith a bit. Both feel solid and don't have random parts popping off.

iacon45: Speaking of the Skywarp set, I need to take out the three Battlemasters before I toss the box.

iacon45: At least it's not SS Shatter bad.

Optimal Megatron: And got my Skywarp. Mine's chest is staying on pretty well, so I guess it's a toss-up

iacon45: Just got a processing soon email on Hightower from BBTS. Glad I made that back up pre-order a few months ago.
