I don't dare to tell you, but we still have some sort of spring here...
Temperatures are to reach 14C/57F today, it's sunny and a bit windy.

I read in the newspaper today, that it's so warm here, because it's so cold over there at your's. Something with low pressures there and highs there and so on..
I didn't understand..

Thanks, CG.
It's cold.
It's -5F, which we just don't see. Low teens is cold here. Once I remember 6F. The furnace hasn't shut off since last night. The dogs are walking around on three legs outside, trying to spare one from touching the ground I imagine. And even my pup didn't want to leave the house this morning. She must have been thinking about her last time out last night.
I just hope that furnace doesn't give out. It almost makes me feel like picking up another just to have it ready. I'm sure I'll need a new one before I die anyway.

It's 15F with a wind chill of -1 and we're looking at a high of 22. Haven't decided yet whether I'm going outside today.

1 degree F in CNY, high wind, no snow at my house!

Many things are closed today because of the wind chill.

When was wind chill invented?

When I was a kid it was just cold or very cold or cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey! No, not a real monkey! The brass plate under the cannon balls was called a monkey.

Al Roker is saying the temperature at the South Pole is -6F and it's colder in Minneapolis and Chicago.

Is it colder than the South Pole where you are? We have 10F right now.

I heard a newscaster referring to Chicago as Chiberia!

I just looked and it dropped 3 degrees to -8 now. The good thing is we are not getting the snow they were calling for... yet. What we have is drifting and re-drifting.

Dude! You know it's cold when you say "I'm going to the south pole to warm up!"

It was in the teens yesterday here in Big D, and it's 24 now. Our heater was having a hard time keeping up yesterday.

I think I'll make some nice hearty soup today...something that will really stick to your ribs. Maybe a broccoli, cheese potato.
