Hey GB, scientists have just recently debunked the hat thing. They say whatever part of you is UNCOVERED loses heat the fastest. It just so happens most people don't wear hats thus...their heads. We were the nutty Canadians in Florida one year. Swimming in the pool while the locals wore sweaters. LOL.

No sign of warming yet. I've been told this weekend we will get above freezing. Yeah right! They told me that for the beginning of this week too. That was the day that the bottom hinge on my front door made a huge CRACK as we opened it because of the ice built up on it. (On the INSIDE)

You guys are so sweet to let me whine about this. Thanks.

Anyone else with unseasonable weather this year? Hot or cold?

Who else is having weird unseasonable weather this winter?
We haven't seen a decent snowfall in over four years; last year we had an accumulated total of LESS THAN AN INCH, and we haven't seen a blizzard (over tewnty inches) since 1996............ December's average temp. was in the high forties, with a low of 16 and a high of 61.........

LOL that was us too. Every single local would stop and ask us if we were crazy. We thought they were insane wearing for wearing sweaters while it was in the 70's.

no Alix- The Pocono's get hit hard every winter, but that's a much higher elevation........ all we've had so far this year is rain, and some freezing rain. My Dad bought me a snow-blower for christmas ten years ago; I've used it a total of three times.....

You mean our Polar Bear club? Yes, they are nut jobs but I believe that they have been turning those events into fundraising for charity. The last one was pretty funny, most people didn't go in beyond their knees, it was really cold.

Me too!!! I remember being by the pool in S. Fla when during one December when it was in the 50s. We sat in our coats and wanted to at least get some color on our faces.

My brother and I were in FL during a cold spell for them. We were determined to come home with a tan though. We were sitting by the pool tanning with our socks on.

GB, we figured they were nuts too. One guy walked past us saying, "Dude, we're gonna get serious frostbite" My jaw fell open. I was in capris and a sleeveless shirt at the time.

OK - this is how little is snows here.

I was talking to a delivery guy this morning...weather came up. He said it's cold, but, at least it's not raining. It's probably going to snow tonight. I said, really? Are we expecting any precipitation? He said "no" but if it get's down in the 20's it will probably snow.
