You know how cold it is?

Cold enough to have a not so friendly conure cuddle. Granted, the last time we had him being this friendly, we had a quake.

1. It's 29 degrees here in Sonoma County.

It was even colder yesterday. Our water lines were frozen, so no coffee = went back to bed & stayed there most of the day.

The water is kinda running a little today, so I made coffee and I'm up for the day. (freezing my ass off).

No idea what your post is referring to though.

27. I hope we don't have to pay for this cold with an awfully hot summer

I can tolerate the cold much more than the heat. I'm kinda liking this cold snap

35. I agree. I love cold weather. Hate summer.

I lived in South Florida most of my life until I moved here to North Georgia and found there are actually 4 seasons and not just spring and summer all year.

29. It touched 15F here in Tempe this morning

It's really beating the shit out of various plants. We've been covering our garden, and have xmas lights in there. But fuck, 15F, like three days running. We're losing the war of attrition

That's a normal low for September/October. The normal low for this time of year is 18.

14. 64 Degrees, Yesterday

Here on Ohio's Eastern Shore. If it would stay this warm, I would go camping. The weather guessers claim that we will be back to normal temps soon. With the price of heating oil the way it is, I wish it would stay warm.

It's a problem when it's colder in San Diego than either Cleveland or Anchorage.

31. I figured

My dad still lives in Anchorage.

If it's this cold (~35F) in Tucson, it's probably warm in Anchorage.

If it's warm in Tucson, it's cold in Anchorage.

Almost never fails.(only applies to winter, though always applies in Summer)

24. 50 degrees in Santa Barbara, and it was in the 20s overnight

Before you other DUers laugh at us, let me remind you our houses are not built for this.

Brrr.

What really worries me is the prospect of extended drought coming, though....

Well, on my way to the store this morning, I couldn't help but notice an exhibitionist on the corner, and it's so cold, he was flashing a drawing of himself.

30. And out here in Iowa it is 30 degrees. Weneed snow, we need cold

I can't even remember when the last time we were below 0. We need cold to kill bugs and other creepy crap.
And we need moisture badly. But not all at once, mind you.

32. West Michigan here...

Just bought 150 gallons of heating oil today -- I was running low. If I don't have to do that again until autumn, I'd be very happy. My SocSec check only goes so far and I still enjoy eating and having a cocktail or two once in a while. Price was $3.609 / gallon. Yikes! Thank goodness I have great insulation.

It was above 50 this last weekend, but we're getting normal winter cold now. Could get very cold and snowy if things are returning to normal here. Below zero is not unusual. Yet to see it this winter, or last.

Stay warm with your conures, Nadine.
