~ 0630 hrs and it's -23.8 here in the Greater Gray Metroplex.
What'd YOU get down to overnight?
-11.3 at Lower Village, Kennebunk
Ground temp in Fairfield -43*
Colder then a Cats * * *
-18 right now in Auburn (on the hill). Probably colder down by the river.
I wonder if pmh's computer still works or if the electrons are frozen. It must be cold as heaven up there.
Balmy in my part of Central Maine this am. Didn't even hit -30ÂºF today.
How much for those carbon credits again? :wink:
Al Gore's down in St. Lucia, spending some of the Global Warming profits.
20 below here in Newcastle - coldest I remember.
Holy cr*p - it's still going down! -25 at 0713.
I am glad it wasn't this cold for the annual Lobster Dip in OOB. It was balmy compared to today!
- 20 F in the big city of Dennysville. That's warm compared to other AMGer numbers! :shock: We all know global warming is REAL and DANGEROUS. :roll:
We're at a balmy -7 here in Brunswick at 0721.
-31 F, Winterport
Still dropping. Right now it's -20.4 here. Our Garland volunteer firefighters were out all Thursday evening. I don't know how they stood it. Haven't talked to anyone in the department yet, but it must have been awful. God bless 'em!
Jackman border trust on there sign -40 at 6am have pic but can't post it berrrrr cold
Hey, Bluegrass girl. Up here in the rural mountains of Brunswick, it was -6 at bedtime, and -16 at 7am when I came downstairs, which was the low point for the overnight period. It is now 7:45 and -12.
I'm really looking forward to putting the trash out. Almost as much as the guys on the trucks look forward to picking it up.
-28 the low in Calais...we all know that global warming is real and dangerous.
-16 in Dixmont.
You know itâ€™s cold whenâ€¦.
-It burns your air way when you step outside.
-Your car reluctantly starts while speaking in a series of moans and squeals, reminding you about the heated garage you donâ€™t have for it.
-In your travels you pass several dead vehicles on the side of the road (collateral damage).
-Every valley has a smoke ceiling from the woods stoves working overtime.
-You seek out full service gas station because you donâ€™t want to get out in the cold, but you will make some guy making minimum wage suffer for you.
-Your ice fishing traps ice over every few minutes, a sing from god telling you how crazy you are for fishing on a frigid day.
-The family dog walks out the door for a morning glory and looks back at you like its your fault its cold out.
Feel free to add some more Maine observations.
Lowest I saw in St. Albans was 16 below at 6 a.m.
Compounding the problem for some of us was a power outage overnight. I hit the sack early, woke up at 11 a.m. to a pitch black home.
Fortunately,power was restored and the furnace kicked on at 1:40 a.m., so we didn't lose too much heat. We have a nice gas kitchen stove we can huddle around in an emergency. :D
-17 below this morning at around 5:30, think it has "warmed up" to around -14.......
- 22 degrees in greater SE North Yarmouth at 7:00A. Brrrr...
20 below here at 7am...Guys working outside today will be earning their money.... :shock:
Yeah, we have a rugged work force out there in this weather. I hope they have good foremen to keep an eye on them.
When I worked on a paving crew the boss would start us bright and early and be finished by noon with a full days pay, just to avoid heat stroke issue. He was a good man!
-23 in Salem's Lot
-31F according to the weather channel this am in Bridgton. A toasty -11 now.
Thanking God there's no wind, and ice preceding this cold snap. Hope the outages are few and far between!
I'll echo Mary Adams' good wishes for our rescue crews out there last night, and today if needed. Man, working with water in these temps has to be a tough proposition.
I vote we apply to the Blaine House for some of those extra ICE CLEATS hanging around!
