Cool Feel so sorry for you all up north...

I don't know how I would handle minus temperatures with wind chill factors like those you suffer. Our winters are quite mild, around 3-6 degrees C in the middle of winter but usually about 17 degrees by middle of day. For snow, we have to trek about 2-3 hours south of Sydney in winter to Jindabyne.

33 degrees C (around 92F) for Newcastle for tomorrow with the next couple of days a little cooler at 26/27 degrees with thunderstorms. Hey Bilby, can you forward over some more of your higher temperatures, I was starting to get used to jumping in the pool which was rather like bath water temperature.

I don't think we'll get snow down here YT, but I do love the cold crispy sunny days! Send some snow my way if you get it!

Well good morning.
As I sit here, the temp is -15F the wind chill is -40!!!!!
I have not been out of the house since it was 45 (above) on Monday, and don't plan to be until the garbage can overflows.
I will never ever ever complain about getting to stay home with my kids!!!
Not that there's anything wrong with that.....

It was 53 yesterday and dropped to about 5. It's 14 now. Wind gusts are 60 m.p.h.
So our windchill factor is about -34. I hate Ohio weather.

In buffalo we went from 45 yesterday to 20's and then a bad wind storm..
It seems were not the only ones...
There is power out all over, a semi is flipped over on one of the highways, they closed all the schools and there is flooding all along Lake Erie, Niagara river and Lake Ontario.
We can see our breath in our kitchen... My hubby and I are curled up in our bedroom with an electric heater keeping warm....
We do have to go to work at 3 and we drive for work, so it should be interesting...but at least there won't be many people out...
oh and there's really bad blowing snow in some areas. Around us the snow melted yesterday...thank goodness!
