Artic air is heading for Seattle this weekend and on into next week. “Highs through the period will only reach the low-mid 20s, and lows will range from 10-17, making this potentially the coldest and longest arctic outbreak since 1990.” (KOMO News.) It’s going to be cold, people. But sunny. Hey, it’s a dry cold… Fingers crossed that the storm on its way tonight (see pic) doesn’t knock out power.

I have no wind and no precipitation here in Renton. Br-r-r-r. I just got back from Texas. It was 32 with light snow in Austin. My brother, winter, has arrived.
I hate the cold weather, I would much rather be in shorts and a t-shirt, except in December. I really enjoy the brisk cold and snow around the holidays, it doesn’t feel like Christmas unless it is freezing! >> We had a howling storm on Thursday, we did not lose our power thankfully, although a lot of people in the Northeast did. Hope you make it through without any damage.
Its 9 degrees here in Whitewater WI. The wind is blowing 15 miles an hour. The sun is flashing in and out of the clouds. I live in my sleeping bag coat when I go out. If your power goes out, I’ll send you a post by carrier pigeon. I know where I can borrow one.
60s here today, but I’m waiting on your snow here in Colorado!
Dang. It’s warmer in Wisconsin!>>Sarah
Today, I mean. Not to contradict Barbara from Whitewater. :)>>Sarah
Right now, we have a light breeze and cool but not cold weather. But the artic wind is coming… Fortunately, we have a huge pot of chicken-and-root stew (leek, carrot, potato, turnip, parsnip, shallots, rutabaga–who can say that without smiling?) which is awesomely delicious and *warm*.
Wow, interesting combo of stuff there. >>It supposedly 56 here, but it feels cold to me…. I know, I’m a baby.
Oooh, that stew sounds marvelous…do you use a crock pot?>>Weather here has been cold (a few degrees above zero), then warm (snow day yesterday from freezing rain, but then it all melted by afternoon). >>I think I am part polar bear. Growing up in Northern MN makes me really appreciate this cold weather in Maine. I feel like my lungs get washed out with clean mountain water when I breathe in that cold air. >>Having the power out here is becoming less a time to panic, and more a time to appreciate the lack of refrigerator hum, the crackling fire and the blanket of quiet surrounding me. Life in Maine is dictated by the weather; I’ve had to put down all my anxiety about being late to things or not getting things done on time. It’s…interesting.>>Good luck in keeping warm and keeping all your power!
doh. you haven’t posted your creative co-op deadline yet. so i shall comment on the weather. and i’ll begin by saying, a lot of the time living in Arizona is a losing proposition. It can be hot, and kind of a cultural crap shoot. (Yes, Tucson is the home to Calexico, Neko Case occasionally, and Howe Gelb/Giant Sand, but) Way too many Arizonans (for my taste anyways)like big trucks, big guns, and really ugly strip malls.>However, the fact that it has been an incredibly mild winter with some outrageously beautiful sunsets makes up for a lot. >>Tomorrow we are expecting freakish lows of 55′. I guess we’ll enjoy it while it lasts, and come April, when we’re trapped in traffic behind a sea of monster trucks, moaning about 110′ in the shade “but it’s a dry heat” weather, and wondering why the hell we live here, we’ll look back to our mild december and the balmy holidays spent dining on the patio and–probably wish we were living in Seattle. enjoy your arctic blast!
janine, yes. A crockpot/slow cooker. And vegetable juice we save in the freezer from previous meals. Oh, and I forgot to mention fennel.>>kat, it’s snowing here now. The air’s too dry for it to last long, I think, but it’s very pretty and sparkly in the street lights.>>I’ve never been to Arizona. Nobody every makes it sound enticing…
