Just talked with my daughter in Golden, CO where my 2 grandsons are shoveling snow in 1° weather.

Wondering whether anyone else is having similar conditions ?

Last night the temp dropped in the mid-teens in some areas around the Puget Sound area. In fact, 14 deg. in Buckley, WA. which is about 20 miles or so east of Tacoma. Fourteen degrees is pretty darn cold in this part of the Pacific Northwest where we seldom get snow, or many winter days below 32 F. Maybe gonna' be a pretty cold winter,.......harold

ISHPEMING, Mich. (AP) — The National Weather Service says more than 3 1/2 feet of snow has fallen on parts of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula in a record-setting pre-winter storm.

Late Wednesday morning, 42.5 inches had fallen since Monday in Marquette County near Ishpeming. Generally, 2 feet or more fell in parts of the Upper Peninsula with lower totals along Lake Michigan.

The weather service’s Marquette-area office reports a record 16 inches of snow fell Tuesday, equal to 1.89 inches of rain. That broke a record set in 1977.

Meteorologist Justin Titus says the storm has left the area, but there could be lake-effect snow of 8 to 15 inches through Saturday.

Temperatures have plunged around the state, with Detroit’s high of 65 degrees Tuesday falling to 40 before dawn Wednesday and heading downward.

Monday was a straw hat day, over70º, but around six PM the wind suddenly shifted to the north and we dropped twenty degrees in a half hour. I hear OKC dropped fifty degrees ins 24 hours. When I got up this morning we were at 18º, and warmed up to 27º this afternoon. After a sudden hard freeze like this all the mulberry leaves hit the ground. No snow in the forecast until Saturday.

If it gets any colder we're gonna hafta turn the thermostat up so the furnace will start, we usually don't do that until December. In fact some years we don't use the furnace at all.

We're coming into Summer here in Australia.

Two weeks ago I drove my '25 Tourer to a neighbouring town about 36km (22 miles) away. That was fine until it was time to head home. By then the mercury had soared to 37°C (about 98°F). Next time I think I'll put the top up and open the windshield.

There is dust on my anti-freeze tester. Usually I get the tester out on Thanksgiving week-end and test all the tractors, trucks, cars and Model T's.
I had 35 degrees this morning in South Central Texas. I think I better head to the town and find some anti-freeze. That is a lot cheaper than fixing a lot of freeze damage.

We finally had to put one blanket on the bed and I now wear a pajama top, not just the bottoms. It gets into the high 40's or low 50's now at night, and into the high 60's or low 70's during the day. Soon we might even need to light a fire! while the east is starting to shovel snow, we are just beginning to rake up leaves! We might need to move Thanksgiving inside instead of eating out on the porch!

I wish it would rain before our well goes dry. Worst drought in many years.

I've got the shop thermostat set at 50 degrees. I changed filters in the furnace and the house is set at 69 degrees. Every once in awhile I grab the remote and light the fireplace. Bought a membership at the local gym and I've been spending time floating around the pool. I don't really want to float around in the pool but every time I lay back in the recliner some jerk yells "He's beached again, we're gonna have to push him back out!"

We dodged a bullet here in central Wisconsin.
Most of the snow stayed to the north and the farther north you go the more snow they got.
We have less than 2" of snow but it's cold enough for this time of year with little to no improvement for the next 8 days......highs of around 20º.
At least I haven't had to plow snow........ :-O

Geez John, thank you for reminding me of one of the reasons I quit deer hunting. Well that and several other reasons. I have to admit though, if there was someway I could afford to hunt in Montana and find a place to hunt, I'd be out there. Mule deer hunting is so much more fun then pounding the brush here in Wintersoda.

My "winter beater" this year is a 2001 Ford Escape, that I traded some work for. I picked up a set of lightly used Winterforce radials a few weeks ago, and felt a little silly putting them on last week, as I considered it to be too early. Boy was I wrong. We are getting it good here in Grayling Michigan :-)
Cleaning out and re-arranging one of my T storage buildings two weeks back, I opted to put the Yakima ski carrying box on top of the old beater Escape, rather than take up space storing it. I was accused of "rushing the season" by one of my sons. It was a 55 degree day. Nice and sunny. (That's shorts and T-shirt weather here, Ralph)
We had 2 inches on the ground yesterday, and it has snowed 7 inches in the last 3 hours.

How did you attach the cardboard? Nice clean installation!


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Mark Strange on Friday, November 14, 2014 - 08:44 am:

I cut the cardboard to shape, then used a wallpaper seam roller to compress the outer 1 inch of it so that it would slip into the gap between the radiator and shell. Then I gave it a light coat of satin black spray paint to help it blend in.

Between the slip fit and the wind forces, I'm hoping it will stay put. :-)

Update - I just got back from my morning drive with the cardboard winter front, it stayed in place and worked just fine, the engine got nice and toasty without overheating. :-)

Now I need to work on closing up the gaps at the front of my side curtains where they meet the windshield posts. Right now they act as cold air scoops. I could just tape them, but that would look a little tacky in my opinion. Maybe I'll try to fabricate some clips to snap onto the windshield posts that will pull the front of the curtains up tight.

It got up to 20 degrees and the coupe started. I guess I'll put it in the garage til the cold snap is gone. It has a tired engine. In the 50's the rod journals were trued and the bearings refit. I put rings in it 18 years ago but it is loosing a little compression at low RPM's now. Maybe it's time to get rid of the cast iron pistons.

Interesting to read the posts from Chad in the NY Capital district. Getting very heavy snow in St. Lawrence County right now. Expecting about 2 feet.
Wind is causing 0 visibility at times.
Chad, my brother lives in Clifton Park. Where are you in the Capital District.
I am sure John Nichols from Carthage can comment on the snow today as they are getting it too and expecting more than we are.

Samual Pine: I don't understand all the talk on other posts about putting the T up for the winter. What could be more fun than spinning doughnuts like you were doing. I drove my 12 to town day before yester day in 3 degree weather with NO SIDE CURTAINS. I was not cold, you just have to know how to dress.

Ricks

I am located 17 miles Southeast of Watertown, NY and about 4 miles from a part of Ft. Drum, NY.

BTW We now have about 5 inches on the ground and Sunday
it is supposed to get up to 53 above

Bud,
What breed is Molly ?

We have a new Maltese Shih-Tzu female now 4 months
old. I will post some pictures when I get some new equipment, but she loves the snow !

Molly is a cockapoo. Since her mom and dad were both cockapoos (not a cocker spaniel and a poodle as you might expect), we laughingly call her a cocka-cocka-poo-poo. ;o)

4 months is a fun age, enjoy her!

William, I am in South Colonie, just down the road so to speak from your brother.

I would have expected John Nichols to have a bunch more snow than 5". It must be mostly south of him.

I can't wait for the weekend to get here and warm a bit more. 45-50 is perfectly fine for me.

We now have in excess of 2 Feet, still snowing
Chad, I live in Edwards, NY in St. Lawrence County
About 50 miles from Massena and 50 miles from Watertown. John Nichols may be getting heavy snow now, most of the day the lake effect band settle on areas North of Watertown. Now it is slowly drifting southward,hitting the Watertown - Carthage area.
In areas further North of us like Potsdam had blue sky and bright sun most of the day.

William Goodheart.

First let me say, I am glad to have another T in my area to visit with. On the morning of the 18th I went out and measured the snow and came up with 3.5 inches. Then when I went to the garage I had snow to the knees where
the wind had blown it up.

Thanks for telling us about Molly, Sarah's father was a 3-1/2 lb Maltese and mother a Maltes
Shih-Tzu mix. Her grandmother which we have is full blooded Shih Tzu from Korea. We have a little Yorkie named Ruby who is also from Korea.
Sarah was a pick of the litter and loves going in the truck. I think she will be a natural for the T.

One of the reasons we do not have the snow that Watertown has is because while Watertown in the Lake Effect snow belt, we are on the fringe.
I have seen snow so deep near Watertown in the past that was so deep, you could stand on top
of the snow and touch Telephone wires.

Here comes the snow for me. Predicting 9-12" here in upstate NY starting in a couple of hours and ending Thanksgiving morning. Not a huge amount by any means, but it'll keep me busy keeping the driveway clear. The worst part for me is getting two family members off the main road when they get home, until I can get home to clear the driveway.

Cloudy but kind of nice up here in Carthage, NY. Had a bit of rain last night and some freezing and driveway was like all black ice. Now its gone.

20% chance of snow tomorrow. After that I will go day by day, but soon enough the big snow will arrive.

John

Slept with window open, but one blanket on last night. Thanksgiving is suppose to be about 86 degrees. I guess we can eat out on the porch. We haven't needed any heat yet this season, but would sure like some rain. I think the poles have shifted. The north pole has moved to the Northeast and the desert has moved to southern California.

I moved the roadster back over to the shop, about two hundred yards in four inches of wet snow on top of frozen ground. I was surprised at how little is slipped. PK

It's going to be 72 today with a 40% chance of another dust storm. Typical Bakersfield winter. Ha Ha Ha
