I'm sure glad we live where we do. High today was 47F, low was 41. Sure, it's been 800 broken, 1800 overcast, 2 miles visibility, rain and fog, but it sure beats what folks in Chicago and further east are experiencing! And we're at about 48 degrees 30 minutes latitude, just 50 miles (straight line) form the border with Canada.

As ex-pat Brits from Lancashire, we're used to weather like this, even in summer. My sister, who still lives there, reckons that Anacortes and the San Juan Islands is where God goes on vacation.

The downside is that 800 broken, 1800 overcast, 2 miles vis is typical for 01 Dec through 01 March! We have a high level of suicides at this time of year, primarily among ex-pat Californians.

Just found out it's supposed to be 19 degrees here in NE Louisiana Monday night.


Methinks Momma Nature's throwing a hissy fit.

They are talking lows that boggle the mind here in St. Louis Sunday night. High temp not to go over 0! Just hope I used enough pink stuff! I spent some time in January in Calgary on a job site and I have never been so cold. You really cant tell the diff in feel between -20 and -40F. Your spit also freezes before it hits the ground at -30 or so. Also needed to plug my rental car in to an outlet so i could make it to the airport in the morning and it was a Gasser! I told my self i would never complain about the winter after that trip. That was about 4 years i guess i can start compalaning again.

Here is a good video to warm us all up. Ignore the twist at the might have been influenced by Jim Beam

I have -17 now in Grand Rapids, MN. On Sunday we're supposed to have a high -18 and a low of -25. This level of cold is getting old!
