  • Baby it is cold outside.

    22 degrees Fahrenheit at 3 O'clock Sunday morning.
    Darn cold doing foot patrols
    And doing vehicle patrols, a thick coat of frost on the windsheild
    of the Security Vehicle.
    Winter is on its way
    And about January this weather will seem mild when it 5 degrees Farhenheit,
    snowing at 2 to three inches an hour, and winds gusting to 35 knots
    Boston, Detroit, Milwaukee, Toronto are fun places to be in winter if
    your a Security Guard doing outside patrols.

    Sorry I'm being a smart aleck.

      That's OK. I'll take the cold any day over the snakes, scorpions, and black widow spiders that inhabit your region.

          I'll third that! You can always add clothing, When it reaches in the 90s F here in Montreal with our high humdity, it's murder. It's presently 43 F in Montreal(at 22H00). (Mild for this time of year). I think my friend Jon in Boston gets more snow than we do in Montreal. So far this year NONE!

            Yes, but when its 90 in the summer here in wonderful Wisconsin, I will be demanding the cold again. Why, exactly, is it 99 degrees in WISCONSIN.

              It's not that bad. So what that everthing here will either bite, sting, or prick you. We have 3 monthes of hot 100+ with very low humidity (4-10%). Even then our monsoon season starts in august which can cool it down by 40-50 degrees in a few minutes. Other than that its beautiful the other 8-9 months. We get snow here about once every 5 years. It looks great with the Saguaro cactus having snow on it. It ussualy melts by noon.

                We had a snow storm at the end of January 2005. 35 inches of snow
                in the Boston area.
                What is normally a 45 minute drive to work took about 3 hours.
                Anyone who drives in snow or lives in the snow belt will know what I mean
                when I say whiteout conditions.
                Once I got to the Gatehouse I called the other Guards not to even leave
                their homes. It was too dangerous to drive.
                I did not go into some of the buildings for patrols. With that much snow
                on the roofs, I was leary of roof collapses. Brutal cold. Walking in the snow
                was no fun. The snow was pelting you, and it felt like you were being stung.
                I stayed 24 hours.

                But I had a microwave oven. Plenty of food, and lots of coffee.

                By the end of those 24 hours. The storm was over, the roads plowed, and a moon-lit night.

                      28 F, Heavy Snow. Everywhere from Chicago to maybe the bottom of Milwaukee is in the Green or Yellow on radar.

                      (I have a neat little extension in Firefox that shows me the weather and the radar map in FF's toolbar. )
