I knew a cold front was coming in this evening....

About 14 years ago I was playing High School football and was tackled akwardly. My right knee became an awful mess. The Patella was dislocated and the Fibula was broken. Now, whenever the seasons change suddenly like it's about to tonight here in Omaha, I can barely walk without getting drugged up. I always believed this to be an old wives tail until last year.

Do any of you experience the same thing? Is there a clinical name for this condition? I don't think it's arthritis but you never know.

(I know Skip probably does not have this problem since he loves his perscription from old Dr. Smokeabowl.)

It's that thing that midwesterners have a love/hate relationship with, southerners have never heard of, and northeners live perpetually behind. At least that's the technical definition they gave me in weather-type-of-person-like-school.

After 95 today in KC, I would imagine Highs in the 70s will be very welcome tomorrow.

Nice nickname BTW...

Gonzo Pornography is a style of filming the sex scene that places the viewer in the action directly. The camera shot is more freelance and closer to the genitals during the filming. This style of filming is more loose and direct. Gonzo style filming places the camera in very close proximity to the action unlike traditional filming which shows more of the full bodies of the performers with periodic closeups.

I think that's more like an episode of Fear Factor!

We had the nastiest storm I've experienced in years last night - major, numerous power outages, trees down all over the place and roads flooded. Some parts of the Chicago area got 4 inches of rain. Normally a storm that strong blows over quickly, but this went on and on and on, for hours. I was driving though water halfway up the door of my car at a couple of points (yes, like an idiot I was out in it). I would have probably stalled out if I had stopped. Once, a wave caused by a car going the other direction came up over the hood. Not good. :shake:

We're supposed to get another round later tonight. I hope it passes quickly, because the ground is far too saturated to take much more right now.

Well I tore my labrum in my shoulder 3 years ago playing high school football and my shoulder hurts like hell right before cold weather or before it rains, so I know what you mean.

Sounds like that arthritis kicking in on some of you guys. Not making fun, keeping the Karma good.

Ahhh, that is why I am paying so Damned much to live out here. No such thing as a cold front. When it gets down to 40 degrees at night in the dead of winter, it sure feels cold :D

Gonzo, the serious answer to your question is yes, the weather does have an effect on certain portions of the body, especially prior injuries.

But the culprit is not the cold front, rather the low pressure system that's dragging the cold air behind it.

When the pressure drops it allows joints and especially injuries to swell outward, because they are not recieving as much inward force from the air around you.

The result is typically a dull pain in affected areas.

Most people don't notice it until they get older, hence the term "front porch forecaster"

Not an old wives tale, based on fact :thumb:

Reminds me of a joke a friend once told me:

Retired people tend to move to one of two places: Arizona and Florida. They like Arizona for the heat, because in their old age they tend to get colder than most people. They like Florida because its closer to sea level and the pressure is higher, thus its better on their joints. There is one place in the country we could start advertising for so the retired people can get the best of both worlds--Death Valley.
