This is how cold it is in Claycord.
Brrrrrrrrr. Take that, East Coasters!
Thanks to John for the picture!
exactly…I tried to put water on my windshield this morning, but the water would not even come out of the hose when i turned it on.
Then i got a little to come out, and by the time i got back into the car, it was pure ice again.
So glad i live in good old California.
Because i would hate to deal with bad weather each morning before i go to work.
At 5:15 it is was pretty dang chilly this morning.
Feel sorry for any animals that were left outside last night.
How cold was it? Why it was so cold I had to bring in my brass monkey last night
Good thing that faucet had a drip or it would have froze up the pipe.
Winter tip: unhook your hose from the faucet during a cold snap.
Here’s a hint for those of you who park your cars outside. At night put a towel on your windshield, when you leave in the morning just pull the towel off and you’re ready to go. No fighting with the ice, and you have a clean windshield.
Concord Grape, just had a conversation with a Brit on brass monkeys and the balls last week.
Did you leave the cannon out in the yard?
So cold even the mice are hunchbacked?
Brrrrr yes, sick of the old. I’ll take HOT over cold any day. Bring on Summer!
while u guys are freezing yorur monkjies this week
here in upstate NEW YORK we had near 50* in the ADIRONDACKS

it least your hills are green
@The Martian, do you live in NY now?
It was so cold this morning I actually saw a politician whit his hands in his own pockets.
It’s that damn GLOBAL WARMING not!!
This is hilarious. It’s been ten degrees colder here than where my coworkers live in NY, NJ, and Baltimore for three solid weeks now. Normally they complain to me about how cold it is in the winter but this year I’ve been the one!
How funny (from this side of the door)! Thanks for the photo!
Cool pic!…would have been neat to see time release photos….watching it build
It’s so cold:
that Bill Clinton (the father of the year) is sleeping with his own wife in order to keep warm.
For people who have issues (like my neighbor) with their windshield on his van in the morning, this might be a solution. Start you car first though – it’s handheld, cheap. I don’t work for HF, just another lil’ man trying to survive.
That’s awesome, thanks for the link, Charlie.
I don’t understand the issue with de-icing your windshields. In the morning I just fill a water bottle with lukewarm water, and when I go to my car, I pour it on the windshield and turn on the wipers. After the wipers start, I pour on a little more water, and I’m good to go. It’s much faster than getting the hose, etc. I, also, pour water on my driver’s and passenger windows, as well as, the mirrors.
Neat Picture! I wonder how many drips it took to build that column of ice?
City Girl, be careful with the warm water. I cracked my windshield one time by pouring warm water. Too much of a temperature contrast.
But I have USAA insurance and they fixed it for free.
I am so glad that I now have a garage to park my car in. I hate de-icing the windshield in the winter.
It’s so cold outside I saw a guy with pants sagging past his booty hitch ’em up!
I just moved up here (Concord) from Long Beach and I was totally taken off guard with my commute time now that a good 5-10 minutes is spent each morning scraping ice off my windows. Of course that time would’ve been spent in additional traffic if I was still down south. All in all though, I do like the crisp, clean air compared to greater LA.
That is cold. By the way do not burn wood in your fireplace to stay warm.
I will admit, what with all of my health problems, these very cold nights (and days, but esp. nights) have been a little rough on me.
Now I have a little ammo to combat this cold weather…it was delivered yesterday…do I call it a housedress or do I call it a nightgown? It could be both. The catalog company calls it a lounger. It’s made of fleece, full-length, long-sleeved, with a mock turtleneck collar, and plaid trim. I ordered it in red. It’s very comfortable and warm.
You are right.
I used a little luke warm water this morning, and it worked awesome.
Just need to be carefull the water is not too warm, it may crack your windshield.
But it is easier then covering the windshield with a blanket or using a hose.
Again i say “Than God I Live In California”
@sigh. Thank you! Sc just doesn’t get it.
@mwo1859. Then what is a fireplace for? Decoration?
