The proportion is not right for a 21'?, How about 1 front kitchen 15 Escape?
Wow! Our 2013 15b has all of the lines inside. This is newer since the lines are colored and they were not in 2013. These would not have survived our recent 14.6 degree night in Lone Pine CA!!!

F? What is that?

I could once think in F, but now have to convert to C to understand.

I wouldn't place any faith in a 14 day forecast. The weather people say once you get more than a few days out it starts to be a crap shoot Given our "winter" here in 14 days we'll probably be cutting our grass and complaining about dandelions.

I haven't found a 14 day on Environment Canada site. I think beyond five days is difficult to project.
But The Weather Network on my phone has a 14 day trend. Looks good, but I wouldn't count on it. I've noticed that after a week, they always seem to trend to sunshine ( and lollipops ).

Well it is now official - February was the coldest month ever in Syracuse, NY (9F average temperature). And just for those thinking of using this as proof there is no Global Warming, according to NOAA, January global temperatures were the second warmest ever (54.99F).

We still have between 1' & 2' of snow cover, and Lake Ontario is iced over as far out as you can see. I'm really looking forward to our first official sign of Spring - the opening of Rudy's fish stand on the lake. (Scroll down for some 2012 opening photos, and no, they don't serve Poutine!) They are going to have to do a lot of plowing; right now you can't even see the lake from the road.

It's easy Jim. F's the one the 'normal' people use.

That is a bit of a stretch to say that Americans are the only normal people in the world, wouldn't you think?

Plus, with the Fahrenheit scale such a messed up one, any reference to it as normal is a bit misguided too.
