    I normally don't comment on the weather because, having lived in Wyoming my entire life, I'm used to it doing some pretty crazy things. However, at the moment I'm on foot, so when the temperature took a dive from 30 degrees and stayed in the -5 to -20 range for the last couple of weeks I noticed it quite a bit more. Right now, the temperature has come up, and we now have one degree...yes, I'm talking Fahrenheit here, looking at Celsius might depress me a bit wink. I'm beginning to envy any of you who are not currently in the middle of winter!

      I'm with you on that one.  It is currently 5 degrees here with a wind chill of -20.  Gotta love winter!

    Winter has just set in here in Maine. I can't say I'm looking forward to those temps, but they are on the way, I'm sure.

    This morning, no kidding, I walked out side to find green grass on the lawn and snow on the driveway. Temps here keep fluctuating between 30 and 50!

    Here we are expected a 10-12 inch snowfall tomarrow followed by a high of 14 on Thursday - I am dreading it. Holly

      PS I hope you have electric socks smile

      Ooh, lots of snowmen!!! No electric socks for me here, just the good ol' woolies...in multiple layers. We don't get a lot of snow here, right now it's about 3-4 inches on the ground, but we're also a desert state and right now, at 70%, the humidity is about as high as it ever gets. My SO came from Alaska, and before he moved here he just plain didn't believe me that the humidity hovers between 8% and 20% all through summer.

    We don't get much of the white stuff here in California, but it started falling this morning! 
    I can't claim one degree, however, it's a balmy 16. lol

    10 deg. C and pissing down with rain.  As it has been doing for about the last month.  Oh well, at least we don't live in Cockermouth.

    This weekend finally dipped down into the single digits (F) but yesterday we had winds around 55mph along with those chilly numbers. 

    Wind got so bad, it was blowing the waterfall stream UP the hill!! The water was freezing in the air and as it was hitting the rocks backwards.  Got these incredible ice spikes going straight up out of the water and off the rocks!

    Those ice spikes sound like they'd be awesome to see...as long as you're somewhere in out of the wind.

    Apparently the universe didn't like me bragging about that one degree yesterday, because it dropped like a rock overnight and now, in the "heat of the day" we've got a wind chill of -24, and they just issued a weather warning for wind chills ranging from -20 to -40 over the next couple of days...at least if we hit the lower numbers, I won't have a choice between Fahrenheit and Celsius anymore, they meet down there big_smile

    The good news is, the dog has been going outside and coming back in in record time tongue

    We need some Australia people to contribute here.  This thread is depressing to those of us who despise the cold and snow and are just heading onto into it all.  hmm

    It was probably in the upper 60s here yesterday, but this weekend it's supposed to be in the 20s.

      Sorry, that comment just looked like it deserved virtual raspberries wink.

      We get about two weeks a year that stay in the mid-70s and they call it "spring" and "fall", then we go into "way too **** hot" or "way too **** cold." Don't get me wrong, I love it, but I love my SO and my dog too and still have to point out some of their absurdities tongue
