Cold and foggy in Norwich:- @ 16:20 on 21st Dec
Hope it snows on Xmas day!
I was on the Drudge Report and saw that Ottawa is -46!
That temperature must have included the wind chill, because it did not get that cold.
Ottawa can have particularily cold winters, not as cold as Alberta though, they really get cold up there.
I think I last saw -5 F here in Boston yesterday. It's warming up now. 50 on Thursday, WOO HOO!
Lorax: I'll be in Williamstown over the X-Mas weekend (gf's mom's house). If you're not doing anything for New Year's, I'll be in Montpelier... come on over to our party! ;)
-14°C here in Minnesota today, but that's fine. At least there's no ice today!
It took me 15 minutes to crack the ice off the windows of my car yesterday, it was a quarter inch thick! And the entire ground was a frigging skating rink - the roads, sidewalks, parking lots... horrible, just horrible. Anyone looking for a bright, hard working SEO in sunny Florida? : )
>>>Ottawa is -46!
Yeah, that was with the wind chill factored in or as we like to call it, "the frisbee factor."
A true Canadian [theweathernetwork.com] winter.. :o
For real, SlyGuy. And it's even clear.
I like where it says:
Good hockey weather...
You folks need to move to some warmer climates! I'm home visiting the family in Louisiana for Christmas.
68 today but going down in the 40's later in the week :(
>>>move to some warmer climates
No thanks, I like the warm weather but hate oppressive heat.
When it gets that cold you just stay inside, drink beer, watch a movie. Nobody dies, nobody's home get gets blown to bits by a hurricane. The cold also kills off all the vermin and bugs. The human species thrives in cold climates, it is the mother of invention.
Love visiting the south, but I also like winter.
-7 F right now in st.paul, mn. might have to find my gloves before i go for a walk today.
i'm with rugles, i'll stay up here in the north land. the cold keeps out the riffraff and kills off many of the damn bugs you find in the south. i can can always put more clothes on for the cold, but can't ever take off enough for the heat of the south.
now if we could just get some snow before christmas!
I live in Ottawa, and it certainly wasn't pleasant going outside that morning, but you just have to put more clothes on and wrap a scarf around your face.
The cold lets me feel alive, whereas oppressive heat makes me feel dead.
Unfortunately you can get oppressive heat here in Ottawa in the summer as well.
Now we have 6 inches snow followed by pouring rain. Slush City.
visiting my mum for christmas in windsor ontario canada
today is -12 with 6 inches of snow
now i know why i moved to ft lauderdale florida 15 years ago
canada would be perfect if only it was a little more south
Yeah, we got lotsa snow...followed by rain...which melted the snow...which flooded the streets...so that when it freezes again, we can have ONE BIG ICE RINK!
Its so funny that in Pennsylvania, we can get 5 ft in Erie and no one bats an eye but in Harrisburg, if they so much as see a cloud forming 100 miles away, the city shuts down!
<added>That'd be 5 ft of snow. With all this talk of nipplage, I didn't want anyone to think the wrong thing! Well, at least not on my account.</added>
An hour south of where I grew up the (USA) record for most snow in a 24 hour period happened (Upstate NY). I remember as a kid getting over a foot an hour.
My best friend went to college on the shore of Lake Ontario, and told me about the time where they were getting 2 feet an hour. Ended up with over 5 ft that day, and got another foot the next day.
And now it's 55 degrees in Boston on Dec. 23rd. Go figure.
>>canada would be perfect if only it was a little more south
Would not be Canada then would it.
Weather related ecommerce problem. UPS called and said "no trucks to the USA today". Now its serious, our customers are going to have some delays in getting their packages. Good thing we cut-off xmas deliveries at the begining of the week.
I'm not going to knock having a few feet of snow. I don't mind it so long as PennDOT can stay on top of plowing. I have a Corgi and its so much fun when the snow is higher than his pudgey little legs so that he has to jump to get anywhere. I'm sure HE doesn't like it so much, but I'm amused.
