Its fokin freezing!

Damnit! Came home at 6am had no power, today up untill 4pm with no power ( no heat either) then it went out again a half hour later. Agg its like 55 deg in here. Luckily it just turned back on and the heat kicked back over..

Anybody else get left in the cold today?

What do the internet and Channel 11 have in common? They are both a window to the world; put it out there and do not be surprised who will see it.

I heard it's winter there. You guys better be careful.

Hey, on the real though - make sure you don't go too long without heat. Don't need frozen bikers to chat about in a thread. Winter is the "quiet" season.

I wouldn't mind having something out there. It can be such a mess and time consuming to clean it up if it happens. The three CB's are annoying because you have to work with all three of them and they all have different procedures. It's almost impossible to get a person at TU. They have a building downtown but it is unmarked

You should have called Mark. You guys could have came over here. And BTW, bundle up in the winter. Pants are much warmer than mini skirts.

I used to work at that building I think on 555 W Adams for Storagetek. Thankfully Mark, I didn't have any of those problems.

Dave13 tricked me into buying Bears tickets for todays game from friends of his, me and my brother were frozen. It was worth it to see the Bears win and the packers fans behind us get tossed out because they were morons.

I'm at my parent's house in the middle of the country side. The wind makes it sound like the house is going to fall apart. I went outside for about 34 seconds to warm up the car, but all the doors were frozen shut!!!

Yeah, what a difference 12 hours makes! Yesterday, I washed the car and put it in the garage; this morning, the doors were a bit frozen.

And that wind - one neighbor has a bunch of his outdoor display blown over, and the St. Joseph figure in my nativity set keeps getting blown over - some of the superstitious types in the neighborhood might be thinking I'm trying to sell the house!

If you stopped by the house to pick up the tickets, I should have told you to check out the garage. He has his car he raced in the indy 500 from the 70's. He drives it from time to time and terrorizes the neighborhood.

I am a freight conductor, and today was not too bad. I did break out the flannel jeans though.
