Saturday morning!

Hey Pups and Kitties!


I am still out stomping around in the snow!  We are getting more today too and I hope it gets sort of deeper, more fun to play in then.

But here is something that is making me and my Mom laugh. My Mom subscribes to an weather information deal from the Weather Channel.  So here is what we got for today, which will be OK for tomorrow:

EXTREME CHILL WEATHER
Forecast for Monday December 07, 2009

Wind Chill
Near -3°F

High: 15°F
low: 4°F
Feels like -3°F
Chance of Precipitation 20%
Wind NNW 7 mph
Humidity 73%
Make sure your home is protected and prevent freezing pipes during this period of extreme cold.

Where do these Weather Channel peoples live???  Hawaii?  When the temp here is 15 degrees and we have a little wind, they are telling us its 3 below zero windchill.  Let me tell you, when its like that here, we are all outside shoveling snow , running around, doing errands and enjoying life. Kids can go skating, sliding, having fun. 

Now what you need to be wary of is if the temperature is -20 below and a 10 mph wind, then it is closer to 45 below zero wind chills and that is EXTREME CHILL.  You have to make sure your car is filled up, that you have an emergency kit available.  Lots of things.  But 3 below zero windchill?  That is winter banana belt weather and what it ain't is Extreme Chill Weather.

Lighten up, Weather Channel!

Have a happy weekend, all you pupsters and kits!

Kisses,
Stella, who is going outside with my Wubba

I'm pretty sure Ali Z and I agree that it's cold anyway.

AlessandraLace said...

Hi Stella. I love you (and the cat too).How nice to watch you are playing in the snow. hugs

Stella said...

Hey Evfurry Buddy: We are sorry we got so carried away with the weather.
All that meant is that is getting cold, but not quite yet, and its going to get worse in another month or more.

We Minnesnowdans talk about weather like that all the time and we think every buddy else does too.

Our mistake!

Kisses,
Stella and Mom

Sierra Rose said...

Well.....looked like a lot of fun in the snow there Stella! Those weather stations! Mom's quite a nervous one in the WIND! So much so, that even if there is no wind out, and NOAA is forcasting big wind...someone gets NERVOUS!

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose

The Thundering Herd said...

Laughing - we totally understand. We were outside this morning when it was 7F with a steady wind. Felt refreshing.

Samantha said...

Oh wise Stella - I think you are right on! Mom remembers as a kid in CT and also VT, where she went to school, there were never any warnings about cold. It just WAS... freezing!!! But acceptable, cause it was winter... brrrrrr, but liveable! Enjoy the new snow!
Hugs xo

KB said...

Stella - I'm with you on the weather thing. I think that the weather channel needs to make things sound like an emergency to increase their attention (viewers, etc). I hope that you get enough snow to really romp in it!

Thanks so much for your kind words on my blog. They really mean more to me than you can imagine.

TwoSpecialWires said...

We're happy you're enjoying the snow! We are too, 'cept for some reason, the cold has been a little ouchy on our paws. We had to cut tonight's walk short. The only thing that made that okay was the good dinner waiting for us!

Enjoy!
Love
Jake and Fergi xxoo

Life With Dogs said...

Ouch! Better you than us. :p

Love your new blog look!

Hamish Westie said...

Well of course I do understand what you mean about the weather and what is truly 'extreme'. It all makes Scotland seem like the tropics (not a single slowflake so far this season.....)
Cheers! H.

Martha and Bailey said...

Hi Stella, thank you so much for the lovely email xmas card. It was very pretty and we loved seeing Santa's sleigh making his way from New York, to Paris and then arriving in London!
We also loved the present for the dog - we hope Santa gives us a present too.
Thanks again
Martha & Bailey xxxxx

The OP Pack said...

We love the cold and the snow (If we could get some), but Mom doesn't like either. We should get some snow tonight, then rain tomorrow, then a wintry mix, then more snow. At least that is what those weather guys are saying.

Morgan in Pittsburgh said...

Hi Stella - I am jealous you have snow. Thanks for your kind words about me on Ludo's bloggie, and thanks for your votes!
your pal, Morgan

Cloud the Wonder Dog said...

Did you get more snow, Stella? If not, you can have some of mine. AND the wind chills. I'm wearing my hoodie today, but I still have a nekkid belly to contend wiff. Brrrrrr!
