With the first major snowstorm of the winter bearing down on us, it’s time to list some of the cold-weather stuff I’ve posted over the years, in one convenient place:
First comes Cold Blows the WInd Today. It’s a brief note on hypothermia. Very brief. Just a single screen. None of the really horrifying detail about blebs and such that I could have used. The take-away lesson is that cold kills. Don’t let it kill you. The comment thread is over 400 entries long, and filled with good stuff.
Snowed In. A review of a book about the Donner Party.
Stop, Drop, and Roll. Winter time brings new hazards, including heaters that produce carbon monoxide. Some notes on same. Over a hundred comments.
Happy stuff: Cold Weather Drinks, including my favorite, Hot Lemonade.
Weather outside: Frightful. My local weather. Lucky me! (Hey, I volunteered to live here.)
Dashing Through the Snow. How to drive in a snowstorm. Short version: Don’t. Longer version: If you must, then slowly, and only if you have good snow tires.
Snowday. Ah, storms past! We gots photos!
Fimbul Winter. From last year’s Snowpocalypse. Over two hundred comments, and all of them worth reading.
