Default Ambient air temperature -27 right now.

Arggghhh. I'm getting ready to go way to work. The TV is on, giving the weather report. The air temperature in my town is -27 right now. It's not too windy, so I don't know if they announced the wind chill, but it sure feels cold.

Last night after hockey practice, my son mentioned it was cold. Sunday night after my hockey practice, my hair froze on the way home. But I usually don't look at the thermometer. That makes it seem even colder, you know. If this cold weather keeps up, I'll have to find a hat.

I hate winter. I hate being cold. I hate when the people at the grocery store say, "Cold enough for you?" Why do I live in an inhabitable climate? That's the real question, I guess.

It's not spo bad here in Northern VA. We are geting our first snow of the season right now actually. It's going to be no more than 3 inches or so, but people here don't know how to deal with it and the roads are a mess already... So I might be leaving work in just a few!!!

That is one of many reasons I left northern MI for Indiana... it is downright tropical here in comparison

Can get chilly here i CO. It's -5 currently, but was 70 last week and will be in the 50's this weekend. But we get sunshine around 300 day's a year. Helps with the whole depression thing. Work hard, save and when you retire you can move someplace tropical like Pol. hehehe

Bloody hell, that's cold!

Lorena, if you despise the cold and winter, get the $%#* out of Michigan!

We're getting some light snow; Lisa actually has a two hour delay as a result.

Cause you're a Yooper! You can take it! Cold makes you appreciate warm in a wholly unique way that no mono-season folks can ever know! It makes you saner in a barking mad crazy kinda way.

Them warm climate folks ain't right in the head, ya know?!




It's a balmy 4F here today. Yesterday was the same temp that you have today... Glad to know my thermometer can still go above 0!

I've been asking myself those same questions for the last 10 years. This is one of the coldest winters I can remember since I have lived in Northern MN. We have had 3 days that hit -40, 12 days that have hit -30, and over 30 that have been -20 or colder. We had a stretch of 6 days that we didnt get above -5.

It ain't the cold so much that bothers me. It is the cabin fever that gets to me. Especially come March and the snow melts... It seems to be warming...

The mud is flowing thick, yup it's MUD season! Then BAM

Just kidding, cold snap and it snows again!




AAAAaaaaaagghhh!!!

I thought you once told me that Windchill Factor was for wimps and those that live below the Mighty Mack.
