    How cold is it where you are?

    We in Alberta are in the middle of another Polar Vortex. Here are today and tonight's temperatures in Fahrenheit.

    Now (10:50 a.m.) -25F Wind Chill -33

    Tonight: Low minus 41. Wind chill minus 39 this evening and minus 47 overnight. Frostbite in minutes. (This is also in degrees F)

    Thursday isn't much better - that's when a bunch of us carriers deliver the local newspaper. I invested in boots that are waterproof and rated to -40 (same temp on both scales).

    YIKES!

    So far, we have had no snow or frost. At this time, 19:30 it's 6 degrees Celsius. However, we'll get rain soon... again! I'd rather have a bit of snow and sun with a clear sky.

    So far, this "winter" has been a joke. For weeks now the temps are in the upper sixties (Fahrenheit), almost 20 degrees Celsius.
    And the rain won't stop. It has been about 2 weeks now when it started raining. It's a swamp around my house.
    Candace, maybe we can send some of the crazy weather each other's way.

    We had warm weather this weekend, and are facing much colder in the days ahead. Temperatures are changing rapidly here, and people worry that the maple sugaring season will be affected. Currently 33F, so just above freezing.

    We have a big snow storm on its way for tonight and tomorrow...

    Yikes!

    That storm has started here now, we will get 8" - 12" inches - usually more up here than they predict. It is currently 10 F (-12C) and the snow has commenced. It was 2 this morning, so this is a bit warmer.

    Thank you, Heidi. We're safe and warm!

    The overnight-midmorning snow was maybe 7 inches here. Then the temperature got above freezing, and there has been this drizzly rain all day, so the snow has been turning into slush. The temps will go below freezing tonight, and the rain will become snow showers, so there will be more mess tomorrow morning.

    I hate winter!

    19 degrees in Michigan where I live. Currently, 27 degrees in Maryland where I am for job training. I will be going to Georgia in a few weeks, so I am a bit excited for the warmer weather.

    How are you doing in Alberta now, Candace? I hope you and kitties are keeping cozy!

    How did the newspaper delivery go, and I hope your boots kept your tootsies warm. How often does the paper come out, with more deliveries to do, whatever the weather may be?

    Sending along warm hugs and purrrrrs your way!
