Great, Grey Bucket o Suck

23 Jan

It doesn’t take long. You put the holidays away and winter can become a soul sucking experience.


Now, I don’t hate winter by any means, but occasionally it feels the need to assert itself just a tad. Buffalo and the surrounding area has been getting off easy the past two years and I didn’t mind. What we’ve been dealing with feels a little more old school, more typical winter weather, but the cold that has been pretty constant to start the new year isn’t cool.


We’re all starting to feel like that guy. Days of seeing nothing but single digit temps mean it is almost too cold for regular winter fun. I mean, can’t and shouldn’t go for a tobaggan run at 2 degrees outside. Even if you like it, the sled might collapse.

There are moments of incredible beauty like this


like this one, that made it on to the BBC web site, but far too often we’ve been running into moments like:

Polar Vortex

which greeted me as I went into work last week.

Bring on the January, er, February, hell, any thaw

    Western New York is not a place to be if you don’t like snow.

    No snow issues here, just the constant cold since the holidays has been a bit of a thing. Could use a little break
