OK, I LOVE the still and quiet part of the big snow. I'm NOT fond of the bitter cold part though.

It's -26ºC here (-15F) and kind of grey out there. I have errands to run, one kid on days off (exam week) and one who has an exam and is feeling pretty yucky. Hope she's OK to write.

I love living in Snow-Free Florida. After living in places like Gabbs, Nevada, elevation 6500 feet, where snow was serious business, and the upper Northeast of the USA.

I don't miss snow, never liked it and love living free of it.

It does get pretty cold here for what we call "Cold-snaps", usually a few times each winter. Our coldest is about 20F most years. The heat and humidity are what most who live here complain about. And the blasted mosquitoes.

Today, its a common winter day here; 72F, 9mph wind from the south and a humidity of 97%.

Our weather seems to have gone insane. It was up to -4C at midnight and now it's back down: -16C (3F) and feels like -27C (-17F). It is sunny and very bright.

taxlady, the sunny and bright part is so deceptive isn't it? You look out and see the sun and think it should be warm, but instead its colder than ever when its clear out there.

6°, and freezing sleet. We decided to not go out for dinner tonight after making it home safely from work.

Warmed up enough to start melting things, now it's freezing back up again, you need a kidney belt to drive down the street. It was very nice out, a little bright...
