California along with Oregon, Washington are three states that I can think of that have every weather and living condition you might think of here in the states. Desert, mountains, ocean front, farm land for miles, large cities, small towns, warm year round, freezing, raining, you name it, and those three states have quite a lot to offer.

24F feels like 10F, tiny bit of snow expected. I believe I left my coat in the car...

AND they have earthquakes! Something not found too often in other states.

This isn't our weather today, but is a neat piece of history that Google chose to highlight.

Gosh! I new Canada had cold winters but breath falling to the ground as ice dust!

As I was writing the last sentence the radio reminded me that the Inuit have 50 words for snow. (Don't know if it's actually true but it sounds good).

Whooof!!!! That's too cold for me! Smila's Sense of Snow (movie) mentioned the different words for snow. I know there are many but don't know how many.

Interesting article LP. Went to google to see it "live"...and got the regular image. Hmm, I'm not in Canada, perhaps I can't see it? Oh Yes I Could! I put "google.ca" in the address bar and *voila!* the image was there.

One thing I know - it's going to be harder for me to justify crabbing about the temperature when it drops into the teens later this week. Doesn't make me stop, but it is a little harder for me to feel I should be crabbing.
