US: Are You Staying Warm & Safe?

Recommended Posts

US weather: Record low temperatures ‘threaten 110 million Americans’ with risk of hypothermia 'in a matter of minutes'

 

The extreme cold and record-breaking temperatures are blasting a swathe of states spanning from North Dakota to Missouri and into Ohio after a powerful snowstorm pounded the region earlier this week.

 

The Midwest is getting hit by a powerful polar vortex and people are feeling a blistering wind chill around Chicago. Schools are closed, hundreds of flights have been delayed or canceled and parts of the region could be colder than the Arctic Circle.

 

In Minnesota, blustery weather could mean wind chills that could approach 70 below.

 

Minnesota's Xcel Energy says equipment failures on power poles is leading to outages throughout the Twin Cities Tuesday evening, which started at about 5:40 p.m., CBS Minnesota reports. More than 7,300 people are still without power in the Twin Cities metro area.

I don't know which is worse - extreme cold or extreme heat. Poor Australia is hitting temps of over 50C (122F). We're still in an extreme drought in the South and Western part of South Africa. Russia's getting temps of almost -50C. Incredible.

I saw that about Australia!!! 

 

In fact, all of Australia – again – is in the midst of one of its hottest summers on record, according to the New York Times. Dozens of wildfires raged on Tasmania, an island off the south coast of Australia.

It's so hot there that snakes are seeking refuge in people’s toilets, the Capital Weather Gang reported.

And in Alaska, it's too warm for sled dog races. "Rain and poor trail conditions have led to the cancellation of this year’s Willow 300 Sled Dog Race," the Anchorage Daily News reported. A stretch of above-freezing temperatures had led to open water on sections of the trail.

The weather is definitely extreme.

 

I know I'm not getting the worst of it, but here in south-west Ohio, it didn't get above zero (degrees F) until after 1 pm this afternoon. And the wind chill was well below zero. My son's school was cancelled today, and is again tomorrow. This morning going into work snow was freezing on the windshield even with heater on and windshield wipers working.

 

Just hope everyone stays safe.

Hope everyone is safe and warm. Southern Alberta got hit with the cold snap last week. I've been watching it hit everywhere in the States and reading about the extreme heat in Australia. All I can say is ugh! Stay safe everyone!

    • Yes but there is opening yourself to channel and then there is a quick unintentional use.  If you notice before Rand became a channeler, fully aware of what he was doing and willing try to embrace the power, all you get are the side effects from channeling (the taking chances etc,,) but not the filth feeling.  After book 1, when the using the power and the side effects happened near the same time, all he gets is the filth.  The difference is he knows he can channel and needs to embrace the source to channel.  Just like the women who are starting to channel never seem to notice the warmth of touching the female half until they survive the side effects and become aware what they are doing.  A wilder like Nyn, had she stayed in the Two Rivers, never would of felt the feeling of opening herself to the source since she had built up a block, so it might have to do with you have to open yourself up to the power to feel the good or bad.     In one of Rand's lives in book 2 I believe he was a member of the Queen's guards and was lucky, he thought later he understood why but he didn't care.  He was suffering from touching the male half but was basicly a wilder and it was never said he was feeling the filth.  So I think a lot has to do with someone who channels but doesn't really know it or is never trained how to do it aren't fully opening themselves up enough to feel the filth or warmth.  They are incapable of doing anything more then a quick touch of the surface.   It's possible Rand would of started to feel nausea when he accidently channeled and not probably not understand why.  But there seems to be a difference between inadvertently channeling and intentionally channeling.
