It is cold......

Right now it is 7 degrees outside, dropping down to 4 degrees by 4 am and the wind chill is -10!!! The coldness takes your breath away, too cold to do any work in the trailer, it is about 30 inside with the electric heat on medium. BBrrrrrr......

It's cold

Cold here in eastern Iowa tonight too. -14 F but the wind went down at sunset so not as offensive as the -4 with 20 mph wind we had today. About 6 in of fresh snow, first we've had since Thanksgiving. Looking forward to spring rallies and getting the garden in. Hang in there, put another log on the fire, crack a cold one, listen to some old music.

Seems cold everywhere. Down to 28 tonight here in San Antonio with a high tomorrow of only 45. Below freezing overnight is a VERY rare occurrence here. Norms are about 65 and 45.

It's unseasonably warm in our part of the country. The Salt Lake City forecast is 33 F tonight with a high tomorrow of 46 F (normal temps are 19 and 34).

I guess so, I have to say I didn't wear my shorts while pressure washing my sundeck today.

We take a lot of flack for the amount of rain in this part of the woods but living near the warm ocean does have its' perks.

We hit over 50 degrees yesterday. Supposed to be warm and sunny all week... unusual, unusual, unusual for this time of the year in the Pacific NorthWET. We should be somewhere between 38-46 and raining! If the temperature doesn't drop and we don't get some rain we are going to be in a world of hurt this summer. Snow pack is really low in our mountains right now.

Check your calendars folks, it is winter still. It is supposed to be cold.

There does seem to be lots of cold about the continent right now, that's for sure. Hang in there, it will pass.

I love winter, and will take the cold with it. I don't like it when it gets above freezing though, and our snow melts, and things look that ugly brown-grey colour. I like to embrace the winter elements, and enjoy them, because if I didn't, it would be one heck of a long winter here.

Cold?

The two winters we spent at Minot, ND helped us make up our mind we would return to Calif and would have stayed there if work had not taken us to OK and then later 10 years in Utah, Adding that time to my growing up years in Colorado and we are now in AZ to stay and I've been complaining about the lows of 30 and the highs of only 65 to 75. Of course when other places have nice weather, we go there to ESCAPE the heat here. RETIRE AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE!!!!!

This morning Pensacola set a new record low for this day - 20 degrees!
A couple of days ago we were in the high 60s. (The normal high for Jan in 61.)
