    It is unseasonably cold here. Today the high was 24 with tiny snow/sleet/freezing rain. Next week it is to be in the 50's and 60's here in central NC.

    Still cold and supposed to stay in the 20's today. Our "few" inches of snow that we were supposed to get last night, turned into a measly 1 inch at best. It's so light and fluffy that when the wind picks back up later today, it will all blow away. And with a couple of days next week with temps predicted in the 50's - well that will finish off anything that might still be laying around............

    Glacier and kuhio............

    I love the cold weather, but even the temps that you've posted are a little too much for me. How do you stand it - other than not going out of the house unless it's a life or death matter???? Glad I don't have your heating bills.

    In the far North, life goes on as usual no matter the temperature. We've had several weeks of temperatures much colder than this already this winter. Kids still go to school, you're expected to be at work, etc. I can occasionally get away with using a vacation day to stay home when it's really cold, but I'd much rather use my leave time for other things! You learn to dress for it! We can get -40 any time for about five months a year. Can't stay home or inside for that long! I did refuse to go skijoring today & ran on my treadmill. I don't run outside below -20C.

    There is no natural gas infrastructure where I live. You have to get propane or oil delivered. Our main heat is wood in both the shop & house. We used to get our own wood but since Stuart is rarely home we buy it now for about 275 a cord. We have propane backup in the house & oil in the shop.

    I no longer enjoy winter. I've always hated the dark here. I can deal with cold, but the dark will drive me out of here someday, at least for the winter. If all goes according to plan, I have four more Yukon winters after this one!

    One more week til we leave for Cuba! A week is too short for a vacation but its better than nothing!

    I know many people who get bothered by the lack of light most of all, more than the cold. I prefer cold to too hot, though!

    I have a friend in Canada who is most bothered by the dark as well. But given the choice, I'd prefer too hot rather than too cold.

    It was real cold here down in the upper 20's at night that is cold for here but the last few days have been mild. Just got back from Pismo beach and it was around 67 degrees felt like summer.
    don't breed or buy while shelter dogs die....

    It's 25 right now (feels like 18), and is supposed to get into the low 30's later today. Freezing rain tomorrow morning and then Wednesday - 62!!!! - before the more normal 30's comes back next weekend.

    I saw a beautiful and unusual sight yesterday morning. Across the road from our place is an open field that is farmed, and then about 150' or so back from that, the woods starts. We often see a couple of deer at the edge of the woods, but yesterday morning - in broad daylight - was a whole herd running parallel to the road and only a few feet back off the road. I caught just the tail end - the stragglers - 5 of them - but my son said there were a whole lot that had already gone past. They were all does - not a buck in sight. They must be searching for food, since with this cold snap, it's the first that the ground has been frozen solid for any length of time this season.

    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.

    I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
    Death thought about it.
    "Cats," he said eventually. "Cats are nice."
