Detroit, Vortex, United States discussed on Red Eye Radio


Goal help everybody in the mid west. And now is attending more east. Try to stay warm. Yeah. Somebody tweeted us or is it Detroit or whatever they're telling Detroit area. Yeah. Telling people to keep their thermostat below sixty five. Yeah. It is Detroit from the Detroit Free Press consumer energy asking anyone to lower their heat to sixty five or less through Friday. Yeah. You understand why the strain, but I don't know. I mean when it's that cold. How does the you know, how does the the thermostat ever kick off? How does the the unit ever stop running? When it's that cold. It's like when it's one hundred and ten here in Texas, my never stops. But. I'm assuming that the heater even set at sixty five is going to even if you set it at seventy may be may not go off, especially with some of those older homes. Yeah. That I I was reading where they were the mail service US mail was was halted in some areas. Yes. Amtrak service going in and out of Chicago was was halted affecting tens of people. So. All right. That was good. I I like I did like I like that. Yeah. It's it's not intellectually fair because they actually use trains more. Yes. Further north than where we are. We don't use trains, except for you know, when we get rich from our oil that we have we buy trains, but not toy trains. We buy real trains for our kids. No the. It was. But that was interesting when they were saying that the even the US PS was halting delivery in some areas. So now, nobody is going to sympathize with me but yesterday because my my goal is. Either tomorrow Friday or Saturday to golf, right? Yeah. Because it's supposed to be. I think what sixty six on Friday. And then over it's supposed to warm up to get to the mid seventies Sunday Monday. That's what they were saying. Yeah. Which is which is great. But so I was thinking yesterday. Okay yesterday. I had I was waiting for my new satellite receiver to come in after my. Told the story on Monday were went up in smoke. Not a good Cheech and Chong kind of way. No, I can hear the story Sunday morning. I woke up and is probably about I don't know. I wake up earlier on on Sunday. Susan, probably five thirty six o'clock and just went in, you know, when an aluminum turn on the TV just turn on the TV and then walked to the other room, right? And I'm in the other room, and all of a sudden, I can hear the TV go off. I I hear the sound go often I got satellite TV's that happens once in a while. All of a sudden my smoke alarm here. My smoke alarm. What in the world, and I walk in. And there's just smoke pouring from you know, the television console that. I had that I have all my smoke. And I look, and I can see it's coming out of the my my satellite receiver DVR player. I ran over. And I pulled the plug out that they could smoke, and you said that electrical smell the unit is as hot as possibly could you could be. So I had I had had a call the guy and couldn't get him out with the new replacement until yesterday. Just because I was busy. They were willing to come earlier. But I just I couldn't do it. And he looked he said I've never seen this happen. Because I plugged it in form he said, what was the problem with that? I said you want to see the problem? So I plug it in it starts smoking. Again. He goes, oh, he looked at me sit in all my years. I've never seen that. Yeah. And and so so that was done early. So I was thinking to myself. I wonder what and hit some golf balls today. I looked at the temperature and it was like forty four when that's still too cold. It gets about fifty. There's no wind. So I'll go to the store I can walk out of the store, you know, with the shopping carton walking on and there's probably a eight nine mile an hour wind, and it seemed like the air was a little drier. I'm thinking to myself man is it ever cold? And then I started laughing thinking of all our friends up in the midwest. And. Northeasterners? The good news is they're going to get a break. Go this weekend. Sunday could be in the mid forties in Chicago. And and as high as fifty degrees on Monday, according to whether dot com. So that's good news. They were they were weather dot com was doing a breakdown of the the biggest temperature change swings in history. And they say that this is a pretty decent swing. I mean, if you look at where they've been of the last couple of days, and we're they'll be by Monday. Let's a huge that's a huge swing. But that's that's good news. Relief is on the way. Now, can you blame Trump on the relief? Oh, yeah. I give them credit for the relief. If you give him if you blame him for the vortex. I'm just asking questions. So ridiculous. I that would you know, for some reason if I had a band that would be a name not polar, but just the board Tech's. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Vortex would be a great. I mean speed metal. Oh, yeah. Yeah. It's not and we're not gonna play carpenters music. No. It's not gonna be captain Antonio cover band. No vortex. We play captain antennae ill and Neil sadaqa. So on February thirteenth of last year.
