I don't know what's wrong with them...

Hiyas, this day's weather-update. It is so damn cold, and the wind is going right through your bone and marrow, it's slippery and white outside, and I bet you are sitting in a nice climate sipping Margaritas or something like that, meanwhile we, the not so proud ancestors of the Vikings are staring down in the pavement when we walk, with locked jaws, cursing between our teeth, promising ourselves that next winter we will be in a warmer and nicer climate....

When the next winter comes, we are still here. There are some abnormal ppl who insist on liking the snow, they have skies and warm overalls, trying to fool us other normal beings that "snow is FUN!" they head up to the north, find a mountain and go skiing...

In the afternoon they enjoy after-ski, with coverbands singing old tunes, meanwhile they jump around in ski-boots with a happy grin all over their face.

No, I have no idea what is wrong with them, but I am glad it isn't contagious.

yeah, that's it exactly... actually we're being hit with a violent rainstorm with high winds; it's pretty much hitting the entire west coast... ok, so it's not freezing (even though it's 10-20 degrees above freezing, it feels colder because of the wet sea air), but there's flood warnings all over and they expect about 10 feet of snow over the weekend in the mountains about 300 miles east of here... the ride (on my electric scooter) to work yesterday was an adventure - got soaked all the way through and got blown all over the road by the wind... lots of trees and fences blown down, power out in various places in the area (not us, thankfully, so far)....

at least this should give us a good store of drinking water for next summer

Shit! That doesn't sound nice at all, I hope the weather will calm down soon over there!
In Sweden there were over 60 traffic-accidents in two hours yesterday, because of the weather. Today it's looking a bit better though.Snowing and cold, but okay...
