Chicken killers leave at least 300,000 dead, millions in damage to SC farms

<snip>
It’s a lot of hard work,” said Coker, who did not want to give his farm’s location in fear of risking another attack. “They roasted them. If they get too hot they die. I hate for them to be destroyed like that.”
Only an estimated 500 birds survived the attack, and they will be shipped out in coming days, Coker said.

One of Coker’s employees discovered the dead chickens a week ago Tuesday. He said he noticed a large amount of steam coming from the sides and the roofs of the chicken houses when he arrived at work around 7 a.m. He immediately knew something was wrong.

When he walked into one of the chicken houses, he said it was like a sheet of white – almost like snow – that wasn’t moving. The ventilation was shut off and the temperature inside of the house was turned up to 115 degrees.

I am not happy with the way many animals are raised en masse. However, to roast these chickens alive is beyond me.

Watch a Swedish hockey team rock rainbow uniforms in support of LGBT rights:


Among Swedish hockey fans, Orebro goalie Julius Hudacek is well known for his sometimes outlandish post-win celebrations. He's mimed ice fishing, played leapfrog and fallen over riding his stick like a skateboard. His antics have even spawned the hashtag #HudaShow.

Hudacek put all that energy toward a good cause this weekend. After a 4-2 victory over Frolunda, the goaltender led his team in a performance of "Y.M.C.A." on ice while wearing Village People costumes over multi-colored jerseys the team donned to support LGBT rights.

Aside from the uniforms, the team and the organization's entire staff marched in the city's pride parade and held a lecture on LGBT topics. They also encouraged fans to wear rainbow pins and buy limited-edition game merchandise.

"Pride game is a way for us to show social responsibility and take a clear stand for the equal value. Pride game is more than just a game, more than just a stunt," an English translation of a statement on the team's website reads.

The Wintry Mix has arrived.

Stephen King should write a horror story with that name.
I know this is extremely small compared to tons of snow but I hate ICE. It should not be a large amount though.

Treating Frostbite (Especially important in this weather)

Frostbite Overview
Frostbite occurs when tissues freeze. This condition happens when you are exposed to temperatures below the freezing point of skin. Hypothermia is the condition of developing an abnormally low body temperature. Frostbite and hypothermia are both cold-related medical emergencies.

The condition has long been recognized. A 5000-year-old pre-Columbian mummy discovered in the Chilean mountains offers the earliest documented evidence of frostbite. More recently, Napoleon's surgeon general, Baron Dominique Larrey, provided the first description of the mechanisms of frostbite in 1812, during his army's retreat from Moscow. He also noted the harmful effects of the freeze-thaw-freeze cycle endured by soldiers who would warm their frozen hands and feet over the campfire at night only to refreeze those same parts by the next morning.

Although frostbite used to be a military problem, it is now a civilian one as well. The nose, cheeks, ears, fingers, and toes are most commonly affected. Everyone is susceptible, even people who have been living in cold climates for most of their lives. Some groups of people at greatest risk for frostbite and hypothermia include those:

who spend a great deal of time outdoors, such as the homeless, hikers, hunters, etc.;
under the influence of alcohol;
who are elderly without adequate heating, food, and shelter;
who are exhausted or excessively dehydrated;
who are mentally ill.
