For all of you folks stuck in miserably cold weather, I'd like to send you a cheery note:

Temps here in Tucson (yesterday & today) in the 80's under sunny skies. No thought of snow or ice! I know, I'm just mean! [emoticon]

Currently at 5:08 PM, Central time , the outside temp is -30. Tonight it is going down to -34. The city I live in is aptly nick named.... Winterpeg.

Thank you Mr. Ed for your kindness and concern. [emoticon] BTW, we have what is known as a dry cold...so living in the mid minus 30's,[emoticon] apparently ain't as bad, for some unknown reason.

It's a balmy -20 here.
We're use to cold Winters but this one's a doozy and we're not into the depth of it yet. We usually get this at the end of Jan. and not for days on end like this.

With the wind chill this evening here in NH predicted to be minus 24 degrees,
many venues are canceling outdoor First Night activities. We'll be basking in the warmth of the electric blanket...

HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!

Same here. Lows are below zero and highs barely into the teens. Not unusual for mid-late January but not this early. The more unusual part is the fact it's length-about two weeks. We'll have 1 or 2 days in the twenties but that's still below normal.

It's unusually cold here--lows in the teens and highs around 30--but of course nothing like other areas. But I love it. SO much nicer than summer heat and humidity!

As for me, I'll take the extreme heat in summer here in So AZ any day over a freezing cold winter elsewhere. YMMV

Well, I checked my thermometer and it's about 72 degrees. Of course it's cold outside, but I live inside, have heated garage, and a car with a heater. Outside temps are the same concern as they are when it's 120 degrees outside down south, i.e. you stay inside. [emoticon]
