and just in case somebody feels like going cleverly cynical and going all like, "so? its cold in other places and you don't make a fuss..."
1 this was motivated by hearing the words polar friggin vortex... i dont even know what the hell that is! (but you gotta admit it sounds friggin badass...like a magic attack or something)
2 i have many friends in us and canada so it is of some personal concern to me.
and 3... i know a little something about extreme weather hitting an unprepared region...yikes
I got such a bad winter, I almost forgot what grass looked like.
Hey, if she can stop the green house effect, cure that hole in the ozone layer, and re-freeze the artic, antartic and the poles so the Walruses and Polar Bears don't go extinct. I'll allow her a few mishaps.
But yeah, darn cold by the sounds of it.
Is she even old enough to drink?
Hm... Wait. If she didn't get drunk and still unwillingly caused a storm.. Covering it up with a lie about law infringement.. I KNOW WHAT HAPPEND! D: Frozen lake or castle wing seems achievable, but a continent? Damn...
Normally there's two centers of the polar vortex, which balances things out, but you know the weather! At least it beats tornados and hurricanes, mind you...
But yeah, it's even more fun when it starts snowing after 30 degree (Celsius) weather during a thunderstorm. Actually, haven't seen that since I was 6- the northern end of the mid-continent is due for it again.
Somehow it's really ironic that the USA had such a horrible winter and here in Austria, we had the second mildest since more than 100 years. In Vienna snow fell for 3 to 5 days through the whole winter months, if I remember correctly.
I think Mother Hulda (in our regions Frau Holle) needs to stop cleaning all her blankets through the same damn window.
And, no, I have never heard of a "polar friggin vortex" either - and I wish it stayed that way!
I'm just glad we have plenty of firewood!
