    Up here in Northern New York we are under an Ice Storm Warning. Its getting nasty already. Its 28 degrees and raining:banghead:. Odds are we will loose power some time in the next 24 hrs, and it could be out for a few days.:cry: I got the new Cruncher together, but I think I will wait until this storm is over before getting it running.

    I was in the Schenectady area in 1983/84 when we got a 2 inch ice storm. My parents lived in Hornell at that time and I remember driving home (5 hour drive) in the ruts in the ice. Crazy kid.

    Hope you got the ice skates sharpened! I remember when I was a kid, we got about a three inch thick coating of ice on everything one night. Next day, had to pound on the door to get out of the house, took about twenty minutes to open.

    Well, being a kid, about eight, I thought it was the coolest thing ever! So, I got out my ice skates and, literally, skated for hours on the streets of our city! I even bumper shagged a guy with chains on down 66th street, the main drag, about two miles down to the PDQ! Then skated back with my pockets, and stomach, full of candy bought with my snow shovelling money. I even made the local paper, dude took a picture of me skating down his street and turned it in.

    Aaah, the memories! :D

    Man I feel for you guys. Tonight it's 80*f and humid, super terrible! :laugh:

    We just enjoyed a little steak cookout at my in-laws with mojitos and friends, and it was all together good times. My wife has a friend in town from Chile staying with her sister, and we got to hang out tonight.

    I'm glad our weather it pretty temperate because I can't imagine living in the severe winter snow and/or ice. Props to you crunchers up North :respect:

    @manofthem, I wasn't sure, until just now, but there was something about you that I thought was strange. It's not uncommon, lots of people strike me that way. The commonality? No Winter cold weather. I don't hate you, or anyone else that lives in warmer climes, but, you all are strange. I'm sure most of you already know that!

    :D

    No hate or offense, and yes I am a strange one :laugh:

    Living in South Florida, we have come to accept the lack of seasons and most especially the lame winter. It's go and humid tonight, but that doesn't detract from the fun regardless. ;)

    All in all, we all have to deal with our own climates and happenings, and I hope the team has fair weather all winter long. Like hurricanes can knock out our power herr for quite a while, winter storms and blizzards can do you same, and that's terrible for crunching.

    Stay warm guys! :roll:

    Yeah, to like Hades here :laugh:
    (too used to *C in referring to temps with regard to pc components)

    It was an oops and I fixed it, little too much vodka tonight. :oops:

    5in of snow last night, 5 more expected tonight here in the northwest. My crunchers are enough for me to keep my heat on real low.

    @manofthem, I went to Orlando once. I expected to die from the humidity and heat coming from a dry temperate climate. Anything above 80c here in Idaho feels like death to me. It did not go lower than 100f in my week long stay and I was perfectly content. It smelts like it was going to rain to me all the time, because Florida's humidity would be raining in Idaho, but it was actually quite nice.
