    Today it was warmer than the past couple of days - made it to the mid 20's - but the wind chill was in the teens. I enjoy the cold, but not the wind with it! Snow late tomorrow, but only a few inches. Bummer!

    Thanks, Barry

    Today was colder than yesterday, which I didn't think was possible.

    Currently 13 here at 8 PM, with a wind chill which makes it feel like 4!!!!

    I've filled the (outside) bird feeder morning and night for 3 days now!
    Thank you Karen, for fixing my siggy!

    Cold? Extremely. They say a record-breaker. During the day with the wind chill factor it was about -35 C (not sure how this converts to Farenheit.) Supposed to "warm up" sometime next week to about + 2 C. On the radio they actually placed a takeout breakfast of cereal, juice, a latte and a banana out on the street to see how long it would take to freeze (almost instantly.) They also advised people under 50 kg to stay inside. I didn't and almost got blown down the street by a blustery wind, something like the regular occurrence in "The Flying Nun" TV series might have happened. Perhaps I would have landed somewhere sunny and warm. Whatever.

    We had a wee cold snap at the end of Dec. and the begining of January. Pretty mild here in British Columbia.

    I am currently in Southern California (went to Disneyland yesterday) and even though it rained today it is still in the 70s. Even now at almost 6pm.
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    A quick trick to go from C to F (not exact but in the ball park): double the C temperature and add 30.

    -35(C) x 2 = -70, +30 ~= -40F

    F to C: Subtract 30 from the F temperature, divide the result in half.

    Death thought about it.

    Right now, it is 29 F with freezing rain and very slick ice covered roads. They are telling people to stay indoors. Many churches have canceled services.

    It's 60 here right now... . We had an ice storm on Friday, and now it's 60 the following Tuesday. Tennessee is very bipolar with its weather.
