As far as I'm concerned, fall and winter can back-back, AWAYYY from me. I don't like fall all that much,
and I absolutely hate winter with a strong passion. Especially when negative degree temps become evident.
And cold can definitely be a form of severe weather too, not just thunderstorms and tornadoes. I've actually almost died
twice because of cold weather. One time back in 2013, and also the beginning of this year. (Both negative degree temps)
I can't be in extreme cold for too long because if I am, my body desperately gets into "Get Warm Now" mode. When that happens,
I typically can't feel my fingers. When I'm in this stage, I begin to vomit, hallucinate and pass out. Back in January, on my way to
work, that is exactly what happened. I had just finished simply getting gas for my car at the gas station... that was
enough to freeze me so bad to the point where I began passing out/hallucinating behind the wheel. Everything was sparkling
and getting darker. I started feeling the need to vomit, but I never puked. I pulled over until I felt warmer/better, and I
somehow STILL made it to work on time.
Anyways, severe weather in the form of cold, whether it be snow, or the frigid temps, or both... I am NOT looking forward to winter.

@suzukir122:
I'm with you on below-zero temps, I really hate that type of weather.

It sounds like you were getting in the stages of hypothermia there.  Obviously not a good thing. Shocked Glad you were ok. Smiley

And yep snow/cold/etc could certainly be considered forms of severe weather, even if it doesn't destroy stuff like a hurricane or tornado would.

Thanks @Xmaslightguy... things could've been a lot worse. To be honest, I was more concerned about the drivers
around me. I didn't want to veer off the road and crash into someone at 65 mph. Going to work on time when I'm
not well, wasn't worth it.

The horrible heatwave in the South continues  Roll Eyes We had a small break today with a high temperature of 76 and cloudy skies. Unfortunately, itís going to reach the 90ís again by the weekend.

First day of Autumn forecast: 91 and bright sunshine.

Itís just going to get hotter and hotter here in SC next week, with worsening drought conditions and no rain in the forecast for the next 10 days. The October 1 forecast is calling for mid 80ís and scattered thunderstorms. Itís going to feel like a warm, humid summer day in October.

This is a truly historic heatwave, especially since itís just gotten hotter as this September has progressed.  Itís the worst heat wave Iíve lived through since August 2007, when about 20 of the 31 days of the month were at or above 100 degrees here in upstate SC.

Welcome. Yep, deff coulda been worse.
Just take care of yourself out there in that cold. Maybe put a extra sweatshirt on under your jacket or something next time. Too bad they don't make heated jackets .lol.


@CEB1993:
Over 100 is just too hot! (especially if it were humid too)

Nothing severe where I'm at, but just incase anyone didn't see weather in the pacific, check out the attached image.
How often do you see 3 in a row like that...

No rain in over a month with humidity in the 20's and 30's. Hopefully the tropical wave will move out of La and Tx into our vicinity,

Were you too far inland to anything form Dorian then?

Yes, Dorian moved over the SC coast September 5 and 6. It was my birthday on September 6, and I went to an open air beer brewery to celebrate.  It was 94 degrees and not a cloud in the sky where I was.  Perfect weather for relaxing outdoors with cold drinks, while blissfully unaware of the violent weather at the beach in my same state. We could have used a lot of Dorianís rain now that weíre in a drought.

Not severe weather...but had our first snow of the season today, around 3-4 inches (good that it wasn't more since most trees here still have their leaves). But its gonna get pretty danm cold tonight...low teens, maybe even upper single digits.
Had to turn on the heat which I normally wouldn't do til sometime in November.

That bit of snow (particularly what fell in mountains the will do a little bit of help for the drought & wildfire risk there), so there is some good that comes out of it Smiley

Personally I don't mind snow. Not really a fan of ice though. And I hate when it gets really cold.

@Xmaslightguy, although I don't like Ohio, at all, (I mean seriously... I don't like Ohio) I am so glad we aren't
dealing with that kind of weather. I was out on my bike today... got some good highway rides in and it was 82 degrees,
according to my car. Summer like weather... not many leaves have changed color here yet either.
As far as severe weather is concerned, no new stories here... yet. (Doom music plays)

@suzukir122:
Yesterday was mid 70's here.. perfect warm day  for short sleeves. Smiley
In the evening is when the 'storm' started moving in ... infact I looked north & could see it coming, so I got up on the roof & was up there as the cold front passed over(love doing that!). You could really feel the wind/temperature change! Over a maybe 10 minute period it went from short-sleeve weather, to non-short-sleeve weather.

Tonight I lit up the fireplace just because it seemed like a good night for a nice warm fire Smiley

Forecast said this storm is going towards the great lakes...so its headed your way (maybe that's what the Doom music is for .lol. )

@xmaslightguy, yep we're in for it later into next week in terms of cold temperature. Thursday morning, we should have
a morning temp of apparently 37 degrees, from what they're saying as of now. Then again, this is Ohio. We should be
getting what you guys in Colorado got, right now. I'm a little surprised we don't have cold/snow.
I... don't... like... Ohio. I hate Ohio almost as much as I hate the Toyota Prius.
Who knows though... maybe we'll get mild weather and severe storms this winter, instead of cold/blizzards lol

Got down to 15 here last night. Atleast it was sunny & got into the 40's today. Most of the snow melted too.
Maybe you'll get a thunder-snow storm! (those are always cool. too bad  its so rare.)


Couldn't say what I'd think of Ohio since I've never been there. But I dislike humidity so I probably wouldn't like it .lol.

What's wrong with a  Prius? I personally have nothing against it (wouldn't buy one myself because all that extra hybrid stuff is just more things to go wrong)

@Xmaslightguy, proof that it's a small world yet again. That arch you see in that video, is the St.louis Arch.
I use to live in St.louis when I was a kid... for a little over 9 years. That is where I use to live before I moved
to Ohio, and that is where I became even more of a lighting enthusiast, and a motorcycle enthusiast, and a thunderstorm
enthusiast as well. We DID have some very bad storms in St.louis. Memorable storms that me and my little brother still
talk about up to this day.
So yeah, yet another "it's a small world" moment right here for me.

@suzukir122:
This was a vid I saw recently, and the park its filmed in is a place I go occasionally. I've even been on that particular trail in it too.
http://youtube.com/watch?v=WISFVxP4U8g

With that particular storm I could see the coldfront north of me(mainly due to the clouds, and the dust it was kicking up)... so I went outside outside in a good spot to watch/video when the coldfront passed over. (also purposely had videoed some before, then during the little snowstorm)
