Minus 25C! Shoot ... I remember living in Montreal and thinking that was nothing as a kid. Never stopped us from having fun in the snow!
The temp here (BVI) dropped to 79 a couple of nights ago and I had to haul out my winter blanket to stop my teeth from chattering. :)
Interesting what some people call good weather isn't it?
Wow! And I thought Southwestern Ontario [theweathernetwork.com] had it bad! I feel sorry for all the Montreal'ers right about now!
LMAO - it is cold here in central FL right now. 51 degrees. Brrrrr ;-)
It was -30 C, this morning in central Ontario, (no idea what that is in F, but it's very cold). Thank Jah, I leave for Jamaica on Jan 4.
It was -29 here last night :)
In New Zealand where it should be summer we are hoping to NOT have a white Christmas. There was a sprinkling of snow on the hills round here last week that only occassionaly have snow on in winter. I had planned on a trip on a South Island high country summer-only 4WD road (the Rainbow Road) on the 24th, but am wondering if I should reconsider.
Last week they were saying that the central North Island might have snow for Christmas for the first time ever. I seem to remember that some time in the late 1950's there was snow in one of the South Island summer resorts.
And google.co.nz is showing snowmen so maybe they know something.
don't forget the wind chill factor; it makes it feel as if its -40 degrees!

Definitely no snow expected here. I am on holiday in Zimbabwe after a drive through Botswana last week. Spent yesterday waterskiing in 32 C sunshine. Perfect.
It was -30 C, this morning in central Ontario, (no idea what that is in F, but it's very cold)
-22ºF... That is cold. :) It's only about -17ºC (2ºF) in Fairbanks right now.
Actually, that cold front extends pretty far south; thie morning was below freezing down to at least Alanta. Here, outside of Philadelphia, it is currently (4pm) -10C. . . was -15 at 7AM, with a bitter wind.
Raised in upstate New York (and with most of my early earnings from shoveling routes!), I don't mind the cold too much. But I would prefer a week or two to acclimate!
A balmy afternoon in Vermont: about -7F (-21C).
Already at -6F here in Montpelier, VT and dropping like a stone.
rjohara, I'm glad to see another resident of our fair State participating here.
Ok, I give. My nipples are hard. -38C with the wind chill.
You know it's a bit chilly when you have to use a hammer to de-ice the car... pmac, I find it's best to put on a light t-shirt in this kind of weather. Should warm you up enough to soften those nipples up a bit ;)
Only minus 20 here (whereas it is usually a few degrees colder than Montréal on average). The craziest thing is the forecast for the next few days: Friday is down as being 7 degrees (plus 7!) with rain. That's quite a temperature swing!

Olwen, you've got the worst of it so far. Snow on your summer solstice - brutal.
So... when is this global warming stuff going to kick in?
71 degrees. I am going to wear shorts and a t-shirt on Christmas.
Smelly feet and hard nipples. Now I know why your wife finds you so cuddly. :)
I get up at 6 am in the morning and take a cold water shower :)
CBC is reporting that trains running between Montreal and Toronto have been delayed because the toilets have frozen solid.
a balmy -38o with the windchill in Toronto this morning.
My nipples went hard..
..then they fell off my chest and shattered on the driveway.
Oh joy to be living in a temperate climate! May the Gulf Stream never stop. :)

Man it was cold yesterday, here in Niagara, Ontario that is. I think it got down to -19. That is about as cold as it ever gets.
But, they were out picking grapes all weekend for ice wine. Earliest harvest ever, they usually do it in mid-january.
More good news about the cold..... my car started no problem. :-)
Blimey! Having read that lot I realise I am living in the tropics! ;-)
Here in England in the North it's exactly 0 degrees C (32F) and we're hpoing for a white Christmas :-)

Me too :)
gotta love englands "extreme" weather conditions. Just a degree below freezing and the country grinds to a halt.
Snow is definite possibility [bbc.co.uk]
I live about 10miles from Lands End. We haven't seen snow here for years although there is a bit on Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor at the moment so I'm told.
In fact I have only once had to scrape a small amount of ice off the car.
Today it's 10 degC in Penzance and it feels cooooold!
Feel sorry for the people in the really cold places.
I think I must be part lizard.
|Just a degree below freezing and the country grinds to a halt. |
Only if it's the wrong sort of degree below freezing ;)
Dam cold here in Colchester, must be around 0C - my evil employer had me out walking the estate most of the day.
hmmmm -- well its hovering around 10 C here in Victoria BC -- awfully wet tho...
