31 here at noon. Started snowing about then. Right now it is 1, which is as warm as it's going to get for the next few days.

Came down to Iowa for the Holiday. Currently -11, and the wind is howling. Don't know the wind chill, but it's officially cold. Got about 5' last night. Doesn't really feel like winter, if this doesn't happen at least a few times during the season.

At 6:30AM today, it was -13, windchill of -34 at the Rhinelander Airport. I walk outside, 45 minutes to an hour every day and yesterday walking into the wind had a real bite. But before leaving had read about how the warming shelters in Milwaukee were scrambling to open during the day when normally closed to the homeless. Calling volunteers, etc.
Rhinelander has a facility for temporary housing and it is almost always close to capacity, men, women, kids. Being without shelter is tough at any time, but in winter I can't imagine. The Rhinelander facility is hurting because during the pandemic they had to cancel their biggest fundraisers.
If you got a couple extra bucks in your pocket this winter or would like to make a big pot of venison chili but the kids won't eat it, check out your local shelter/warming center.

On the 21st the first day of winter 31 year ago I rolled into town from getting laid off from my job in California my parents come the summer before. The year before we came they had record cold temps in 1990. Denver area is a four season town but nothing like what you guys have in Wisconsin and Minnesota. My mom is from Deer River Minnesota and moved to Denver in High school, one day mom and her sister got up took the city bus to high school and it was 20 below they got to school and it was closed they were shocked they walked to school lots of time in 20 below in Deer River so they went and watched a movie then took the bus back home. In the last 122 years there's been 45 white Christmases (1 inch of snow on the ground) It snowed twice on Christmas eve and twice on Christmas in the 31 Christmases we been here. One year the local NFL team was playing in San Diego on Christmas and it was low 50's and raining in San Diego and it was 60 and cloudy here. We get days every winter that the highs are teens and below zero at night. This was different. They opened the National Western Complex for a additional warming center. (this is where the stock show is every January) And every January we have stock show weather the coldest of the winter.

While the wind was howling yesterday, here in Iowa, it is absolutely raging today. Power has been blinking off and back on about 8 or 10 times since around 3:00 a.m. At least we have a little sunshine!

Another overblown forecast by the media or maybe they do it on purpose to scare the dumb.
It’s called winter and it occurs every year. It is not a “once in a generation” storm or a “once in a anything”.
I was out clearing brush this morning in it, no big deal, I was bored and needed to get out of the house.
They need to rename my generation the “bulldozer generation”.
I’m done.

Yeah, even in the U.P., just looked at some Live Cam video and some areas are calm, others look to be getting blasted with both snow and wind.

Glad it's not so bad where you are. Not the same for everyone. Relatives in Oklahoma and Wichita, are experiencing low single digit temps, and -15 wind chill, for the first time in their lives. Here in eastern Iowa, haven't been able to see more than 4 or 5 houses down the block, and it quit snowing over 24 hours ago. Wind has been steady at 35 all day, with gusts to 50, and isn't supposed to slow down until after midnight tomorrow. Saw the road map for Minnesota, and the entire southwest quadrant of the state, has all the roads closed. I've lived in Minnesota for 40 years, and have never seen that many roads closed. I've seen conditions like this many times, but not lasting for over 3 straight days, with no let up. The historic aspect of this, that they are speaking of, is the drop in barometric pressure that created the "bomb cyclone". Still not anything to freak out about, but it is an unusual storm in it's size and scope. Pretty sure you wouldn't have spent much time clearing brush today, in 50 mile per hour gusts and -11 temps, unless you're just trying to prove something.

Just for kicks I looked up the record lows for our area going back to 1942. Year to year it varies anywhere from 0 to -27F with most years showing at least on cold spell with temperatures below -10. An awful lot of them were in December. Just for once, I'd love to see a weather forecaster get in front of the camera and say "it's gonna get friggin' cold next week, just like it has every winter since well.... DIRT!"

Yes, depending where you are relative to that massive low. Pretty sure the folks in Buffalo are not clearing brush today either.
First winter I spent in the snow belt of the U.P. a storm moved in Friday morning and by night time my barometer was the lowest I ever saw. Storm raged until late Sunday, early Monday. Took me 5 hours and almost 15 gallons of gas to clear a 1500 Sq ft driveway with a 10hp snow blower. I set the movable pin on the barometer to mark the lowest I observed. It never got back there in the 30 years the barometer lasted before the spring or whatever gave way internally.

Blizzard warning for Buffalo... I have a former colleague sitting in a hotel across the highway from the airport with no power. Nothing coming or going since 8:00 AM.

Now that's my kind of snow. Not that I love it all that much or anything, but if it's going to snow, I want it to SNOW. I can think of one storm in the last 20 years that sticks out... We had 18" of snow in one night some years back. I went out to shovel at 1:00 am, and by the time I reached the end of our driveway I couldn't see where I had just shoveled. Woke up the next morning to a drift that prevented me from opening the front door without reaching around with a broom to clear the snow, and snow past the doorknob at the back door. Everything was shut down - schools, roads, stores, EVERYTHING.

Having spent 20 years in the Lake Superior snow belt, I got enough 10,20, 30" and more snowstorms to last me a lifetime. Shoveling the roof of an 1800 sq ft ranch at least once and sometimes twice. And that doesn't count the 900 sq ft garage. As a walk out, it was 2 stories on the back side, so had to tie myself off. Windows on the roadside of the house were often blocked from February until April. That house was 4 miles from Superior but when the leaves were gone, I could see it from my roof. Beautiful area, but the last winter there, the National Weather Service, a mile from my house. set the 100+ year record for continuous snow cover, 6 months and 10 days. Could not rake my yard until a few days before Memorial Day.

It's interesting to see the difference in the average yearly snowfall as you go north. Rhinelander is 56", Mercer 115", Houghton is 210". What do people do with the snow that have a small lot? Have it hauled away?

I lived in Hancock, other side of bridge from Houghton. Mainly they kept piling it higher. Yoopers figure something out. Things get tight. Businesses often have it hauled frequently but not often with
homes. Couple times I was shoveling up when I got to the roof edge. One year I had to snow blow drive 20 straight days, some times more than once. That was in Negaunee Township. One snow pocket to another. Never claimed to be smart

Where do you think I live?
For the record it was -12 with wind chills -20 to -35.
If you know how to dress for the cold and are prepared you can do just about anything you set your mind to, even when others tell you you should be afraid.
Country living and hard work and realizing what you are really capable of and what you can endure is something that most of society has no idea of today, which is sad since so many have gotten used to convenience and have no idea what to do if they don’t have it.
