    Default How cold is it where you are?

    It reached -39C or -38F with the windchill in Wpg today. I have to walk 10 minutes from my car to campus every day. Even with a good jacket, gloves and tuque, I still canít feel my fingers by the time I get there. We had a few warm days. The day before yesterday it was around -20C (-4F). This is our average winter. Whatís the weather where you are??

    We had a real cold spell for about 10 days. Now we are having some warm weather 50-60, then it's going down to the mid 30's for a couple of days.

    The best thing in the winter where I live is the almost total lack of wind chill. It doesn't even get mentioned in the weather reports. I look at it on my PC and it will say, it's 35 degrees here in Statesville, feels like 35 degrees. The wind is the killer, it was brutal where we lived in Jersey. I would look at the weather report and it would say, "The temp is 31, the wind chill makes it feel like 11". This is my 6th winter here, I think I've worn a jacket twice. Most of the time it's a sweatshirt and a flannel shirt. I love it here. Compared to Jersey, it's mild winters and comfortable summers. Can't ask for more than that.

    Not sure where you live in Canada FBN but we had like 1 1/2 week of -30 with wind chills. This week was crazy we had 3 days of + 8 and the snow has disappeared and it slushy muddy etc as I write this message. The temps are dropping to - 9 by the afternoon which will call a flash freeze and to - 14 overnight and staying that way for the next 4 days with a little snow. Strange Winter so far.

    Not cold but a T storm like you wouldn't believe. Power was off all night. Just returned. Couldn't make into town on account of flooded roads. Oh well. Not likely to rent boats today.

    It's been crazy here in the Midwest. We had that arctic cold over New Years weekend.... -17F with wind chills in the -40F's. Then this last week it was in the low 50F's. Now it's going to be back in the sub-zero temps this weekend.

    Nothing like the paradox of living in the SF bay area with 60 F temperatures and more snow flakes than an Erie lake effect winter storm.

    With the exception of a few blustery days it been fairly mild winter in Devon so far. During the afternoons temperatures have been in the low to mid 40s dropping to a little above freezing overnight. So far my little corner of the country seems to have missed the worst of it - I haven't yet had to scrape/de-ice my car in the morning. Fingers crossed it stays this way as I'm no fan of freezing my butt off.
