OptionEye - The Cow Guy - Jan 6th.

 

Good morning and welcome back. 

 

It is a bit nippy out there this morning. Lake County Indiana declared a state of emergency yesterday and all civilian vehicles on the road after 6:00 pm were to be ticketed. Ugly. 

 

Cold weather the reason 'du jour' for the little rally this morning. Wheat up 2, corn and beans up 2 as well. This weeks grain report will dominate headlines as will the jobs number on Friday. 

 

Gold is slightly better at $1237.73 up .72 cents. Oil took a hit last week but is .56 cents better this morning at $94.52. 

 

ISM and Factory Orders are on the docket today. ISM has been a good indicator as of late. 

 

I expect that the business in both grains and fixed income will be getting prepared for the end of week figures.

Re: OptionEye - The Cow Guy - Jan 6th.

The cold dipped at least as low as Central Kansas, -8 right now forecasted to touch -12 by 0800. Just like Minn, many school districts are closed statewide with just as many starting a couple hours late. Sure hope everyone with vulnerable water pipes left them dripping.

By the way Scott, ticketing vehicles after 1800 yesterday would have been an issue for evening and night shift workers, was there an exceptions for the type of traffic?

-14 with a 14 NE mph wind gusting to 29 ... just to keep it from getting to stagnet around here. Not a good cattle night. Glad we got no snow with this deal.

-15* NW wind at 16mph -- wind chill -40.  Sunny skies--typical Jan day in Iowa.  Very glad for the wind break I planted 30 years ago.  The Scotch pines died, but the White pines are still growing.

Wind Chill Bullchit

if it's -15. then it's -15.   Not -41.  Another way for the media to create the illusion of disaster for maximum hysterical panic effect.

How come you never hear about windchill when it's 100 degrees out?   A 30 mph wind at 100 means it is 70 degrees out? 

 

It's -15 here.    and contrary to ECI's hysterical -41 claim....it's -15.  Deal with it and quit with the theatrics.  

 

BTW...If my beer is getting warm from sitting out, does turning a fan on it lower the temperature?   Just saying.

 

Morons.

Re: OptionEye - The Cow Guy - Jan 6th.

BF; If ambient temp goes above your body temp, wind will accually make your body hotter. However your body will perspire more which will make you feel cooler. I'm sure someone has figured out a formula for this. They do give a heat index that takes into account humidity. A wind chill won't make anything colder. It will however increase the rate things cool so it is usefull information.
