It's -17C (1F). A bit nippy.

It is -2F at the moment but according to my weather bug it feels like -22F. I have had my heat on high all night and the heater hasn't shut off for more than two-three minutes. Every so often we will get a gust of wind up in the 30 mph and it slams right into my outside wall that faced north. The two story window in my small room is covered in ice on the inside from the vapors of our breathing and the pot of water I have on the stove to get some moisture in the apartment. I hate forced hot air heat. It makes the air so dry.

I can't remember the temps dropping so low in this area since the 60's. Guess who is not going outside at all tomorrow!

We're a balmy -5.3 out here in the frontier of MA. Wind sounds pretty brisk, too. Just so long as the electricity stays on we'll be fine.

You don't remember LAST winter? It was -2 on February 20th, -3 on the 21st. As far as wind chill goes, I don't care since I won't be sticking my nose out of the house until Monday.

What I remember of last year was all the snow, and some more snow, and then even more snow. I went out once to go shopping with Spike. The next month I gave him my list and my card and he did all my shopping for me. I stayed in my building until April when the snow started to melt. I can't take my scooter out if it is raining or snowing. The console is electrical and I can't allow it to get wet. Then there is the problem of handicap access. Folks around here don't always shovel their sidewalks and the accesses. It is just too dangerous to ride in the street. We have a great maintenance crew here. They were here at six a.m. every time it snowed. But they also have about six other locations they have to shovel out also.

We had winds all day, it is currently 33F. Had one high gust of wind that had sand and dirt in it, when it hit the front window we had to scrape ourselves and three cats off the ceiling.

It's -26C (-15F) and feels like -38C (-36F). This isn't a two dog night. This is a three or four dog night.
