    The coffee room is pretty quiet today. When people meet and they have nothing to say, the weather often becomes a conversation piece.

    so here goes, its nice and warm today in the NY metro area. Do you like it this way (as I do) or do you prefer when its cold in December (maybe had ski plans?)

    hmm, I wonder where this conversation will go, if anywhere. Global Warming? Will someone figure out a way to turn a conversation about the weather into a fight about tznius, feminism, TVs or cellphones? I wonder…..

    yeah well if wanted to be REALLY frum i’d get into how cold winters are better cuz there’s less pritzus… or maybe not cuz then people tend to stay home and hang out in front of the TV or on the computer… see? not SOOO far fetched!

    Charlie brown – now you’ve said the two words Global Warning, every nutter and his/her cousin will respond.

    Obviously someone will say that we should all know that cell phones cause Global warming and watching programmes about it on TV is violating every halacha known to man and women shouldn’t be watching tv anyway cos they should be washing dishes and sewing slits in their skirts……

    Shall I continue? nah! I’ll sit back and wait for the onslaught. I may come back after post number 100

    I would love this weather all year round. The problem is that going back and forth cold to hot to cold to hot, as we have been doing, is making me physically ill.

    People want to blame the weather for physical health, this is not so. The mouth is really the medium. If I chose to eat nutritious foods that strengthen the quality of my immune system, then (with hashems blessing) I stay healthy. If I have a positive attitude and look for the good in everyone and what comes out my mouth is not negative or insulting then this helps elevate my spiritual immune system.

    If anyone really wants to check the weather, I recommend weather.com (NOT accuwearher), especially their hour by hour report. They’re very almost never wrong.

    #655417

    a cute limerick:

    Whether the weather is hot

    Or whether the weather is cold

    We’ll weather the weather

    Whatever the weather

    Whether we like it or not!

    I personally like when its cold! I like dry cold though because I have to walk to the bus stop and wait for it 🙂 I dont like wearing coats, and I love the cold feeling.

    I also love the fresh smell right before it snows. I think Brooklynites have never properly experienced that smell, because its just not as fresh in Brooklyn as it is in Monsey or northern NJ!

    “We’ll weather the weather”

    Huh? Didn’t get that line?

    #655420

    noitallmr: the first weather is a verb. To weather means to “bear up against” or “survive” (as per ms. Webster).

    The second weather is a noun. (the state of the atmosphere).

    We’ll weather the weather. We’ll survive and triumph against the atmospheric conditions, no matter what they be.!

    Brooklyn, what is the proper term for someone from Brooklyn?

    Last night, I got off the bus around 8:30 and walked the 3 blocks home. It was snowing and everything was blanketed in a beautiful layer of snow.

    I also liked that it melted by this morning so there was no shoveling needed. Getting up at 5 am is hard enough – no need to make it earlier!

    And i love driving in the snow!!!

    **sometimes on side streets when nobody is around, i zoom up then break- so i skid a bit- it’s fun!!! (but only for a milli-half-a-sec: i’m still a VERY cautious driver!!)

    -guess you can tell i’m sorta a new driver!!! 🙂

    The only annoying thing is cleaning the snow off the car!!!

    well when i went out to pick up something, i decided to try it again- and it wasn’t fun this time- i guess only the first time is fun!!!

    #655444

    brooklyn,

    I hope you were being sarcastic about enjoying driving in the snow because its interesting. It’s dangerous and if you have to do it be extra cautious.

    xerox,

    glad you learned so quickly.

    to all the young and new drivers out there,

    if you start skidding, the impulsive thing to do is to slam on the brakes to try to stop but that only makes you skid more. The way to stop is to pump the brakes up and down as fast as you can. and steer in the direction you sre skidding in if possible. If you suddenly turn the wheel it will also make it worse.

    charlie i wasn’t kidding, but don’t worry i’m pretty careful. just mentioned that i enjoy a change in scenery 🙂 and i think i remember learning in driver’s ed that pumping the breaks does nothing. maybe she was wrong – i dunno.

    and yeah you are preaching.

    It’s all very nice to preach and lecture about not pumping the breaks when skidding but Tachlis, when you’re skidding and headed for a vehicle or a wall- you wanna just floor the breaks and not think twice. Maskim?

    ABS = anti-lock braking system

    With this feature, the brakes will “pump” automatically. The pedal will pulsate against your foot. This causes some people to ease off the brake, but you should just hold tight. If you do, the car can stop up to 20% faster than without the feature.

    Without ABS, the brakes can lock and the tires may stop spinning before the vehicle stops moving. This is dangerous (in an uncontrolled skid) because you have no control over the car from this point on.

    You lose the ability to do some trick driving with ABS, but most people wouldn’t do those stunts anyway.

    There are ways to learn how to react in a skid – many of them are counterintuitive. If possible, try to learn what to do and practice it (in an empty parking lot, please). I’m glad I did.

    #655452

    noitall,

    I’m maskim 🙂

    blahblah,

    with abs it doesn’t make a difference if you floor it or pump? Pardon my auto ignorance which causes me to ask that.

    brooklyn,

    glad you’re careful and sorry for preaching. If I BAKE you some donuts will I be forgiven? 🙂

    Oh it makes a big difference! If you have ABS and you pump the brakes, the ABS program does not kick in. Basically, you are shutting off the computer and saying that you can pump the brakes better yourself (but you can’t).

    If you have ABS, press down hard and let the computer pump for you. But braking is not always the best way to regain control…..
