2. That's almost warm enough for skates to run on the ice, what's the problem?

4. A balmy -8 here this morning.

I just came in from sunbathing on the deck to check in with DU. I'll be going back out in a minute, soon as the icemaker drops another load for my lemonade.

don't forget your shades

15. You know it's getting a little nippy out when

you have to go around the neighborhood & kick the dogs loose from the fire hydrants.

17. You know it's cold when fisherman keep their worms warm

by holding them in their mouths.

But that's one of the days you don't have to listing to crap about the Packers.

22. I remember a few years ago when it got

so cold that the local flasher was caught *describing* himself
to women.

20. Used to have windchill of -70 or -80 some 30 years ago

when we lived here the first time. I think that the calculations changed so whatever was -80 then will not be that ominous now.

And... of course, we've had four relatively warm winters.

24. -40F wasn't all that uncommon when I was a kid in Hayward, about 100 miles north

of where I live now. These days, it seldom seems to get below -30.

There has been a clear change in weather patterns within my memory.

There is also a lot less snow than there used to be.

19. Chicago's not that bad:

it's +8 here today.

It's almost a relief to get a few days of very cold. Last year we didn't get any, and we've had some creepy-warm days this past week. In January it's not supposed to get above freezing.

We had a hard frost this morning, though. Horrors!

14. LOL-- it's only indoor, this time of year....

It's the summer frosts that get the outdoor crop. Wasn't it Mark Twain who said something along the lines of "the coldest winter I've ever spent was summer in San Francisco?"

OK, we don't really have summer frost up on the north coast, but when it's foggy and 60F in the afternoon in August, it sure feels like it!

16. 66F here with a high if 73 expected under clear skies.

Come July I'll be coveting your weather, though.

I feel like a kid with spring fever today. I don't want to work, I want to go outside and play!!

21. Its been 32 all day here but its supposed to drop like a stone tonight - high winds too

I just turned on the weather radio and they are predicting single digit temperatures (F.) tonight along with winds up to 30 mph, resulting in a wind chill somewhere south of -20. If I heard the report correctly they expect it to linger for two or three days, then it will warm back up.
