We've been having pretty decent weather this year actually, i remember it was pissing it down for like a solid week last year round this time :? suns been out a bit and its not as bitterly cold as it usually is.

People in Birmingham, we're expecting snow on Friday by the way :wink: hopefully it won't be the pathetic slushy type :lol:

Hi temp today: -2 degrees (F), Lo: -6 degrees (F), but at least the wind died down over night so no windchill factor.  It was -40 degrees (F) here yesterday/last night with the windchill.  That's too fuckin' cold!  Yesterday was my day off and I didn't do a thing or go anywhere that wasn't essential

It was -50 C (-58 F) with wind chill on Monday. I'll tell you public transport isn't fun on days like those..

Yesterday the forecast was High -30 C (-22 F) and Low -40 (-40 F) (all without wind chill).

Now it's a balmy -24 C (-11 F) :lol: and sadly you notice just how much warmer that is compared to two days ago :shock:

It's so odd because our summers do get to be unbearably hot.. like more than 35 C (95 F).. so we get extremes on both ends, and it's like an 80 degree range in celsius I get to experience through the year.

anything that has a negative in the temperature scares me...can't do it any more.

they barely ever mention the "wind chill factor" here - thank god.

but - we could use those thunderstorms as our lakes are really low and we are on tight water restrictions.

the word "snow" scares me too...

we don't travel much this time of year for business because the words "de-ice the plane" make me nervous.

Weather almost killed me last night.  I was coming home from my friends house at like midnight and there's this curve on the top of a hill witha guard rail on the right side.  The snow was blowing so hard it drifted onto the road and we couldn't see because it had like this white-out affect.  We slowed down a little bit and it's a good thing we did b/c we bumped the guard rail. :shock:

Sounds like you're confusing weather with driving skills there :P

It's raining cats and dogs....
Which is better than snow!

But I have Lenny Kravitz tonight, thankfully at Hammerstein so I won't get TOO wet walking a block from the train station.

It's really nothing at all if you can sit inside and drink hot chocolate, unlike today. "Sure I'll shovel the driveway..."


8-9 hours of blizzard later...
