    Ames on CNN for being Cold

    Iowan: Cold hurts, makes 'skin burn' - CNN.com

    I'd say its cold here, I have half an inch of ice, on the inside of my window.

    "Last night, the temperature was still above zero (3 degrees Fahrenheit), but the wind chill (minus 14 degrees) was cold enough to make your skin burn," iReporter Kevin Cavallin said.

    I think Kevin Cavallin needs a new thermometer.

    They still managed to pick out Ames out of all the other below-zero cities for their story lead? We just can't catch a break.

    Re: Ames on CNN for being Cold

    For future reference, there are only three reasons that the east coast media will ever mention bad weather in the Midwest:

    1. Really severe (e.g. severe flooding '93, '08)
    2. If the same weather system is coming to the east coast
    3. If it screws up O'Hare and thus screws up east coast travel

    Although I think what really gets us there is a combination of all three.

    It's going to be 4 tonight in NW Arkansas, I think once it reaches this level of cold the number is just a figure, it stinks to be in regardless!

    Re: Ames on CNN for being Cold

    CNN never misses an Ames riot or record cold temperature.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    Re: Ames on CNN for being Cold

    According to the NWS website, Ames Municipal Airport is now reporting -28F.

    I'm going to boil some water, throw it in the air outside, and see if it turns to ice before it hits the ground.

    Is this a bad time for me to complain about Houston getting down to the 30's?

    Actually, some folks down there in the towers should test this out.

    Mine wouldn't start twice without some serious coaxing.
