It's been slightly overcast in the California San Francisco Bay Area mornings, and then, it gets up to the high fifties and breaks the sixties some days. Very nice.

Sunny for a lot of the afternoon.

Oh man, I hope you have enough wood to last the whole winter, Elf!
We hit 40* yesterday but it's only supposed to be 30* today. That will be nice.

We're fine Copago --- we have a good supply of wood --- we should have enough stacked up by the house to last us through the winter. (The ice storm on Jan. 14th/15th provided some extra wood for us in the trees and limbs it took down --- already cut up and added to the pile.) There's also still a pile of wood back in the bush ready for next year (this year if needed) and hubby cuts wood throughout the winter months as well to keep the supply up for the following year or so.

We can always heat with oil if need be, but we heat with wood most of the time.

In most cases, I wouldn't say this as I don't normally see any, but it is snowing for the third day in a row here. Wednesday morning about 10am CST we had large snowflakes falling, then it was snowing Thursday about 3pm on my way to work, and now at almost 2am, it's doing it again. Very little has accumulated to the grassy areas, and, so far, none on the roads, but that may change.

Our groundhogs won't see their shadows. It'll be cloudy all day, and still a little snow before noon. It's almost 3am, and I've got about 1" of snow on the ground. It's still snowing, but very lightly.

It's funny cause I always thought that Texas was pretty much like here, never thought it would snow

Hot again here. 41*C today and at 10:20pm it's still about 30*

I have to get a laugh out of Groundhog day - in the part of the country where I live, six more weeks of winter is the GOOD outcome....

Minus 20 C here right now, but because of high winds, it feels a lot colder. Nasty.

I can never remember whether we are going to get an early spring if he sees his shadow or if he doesn't. The way I figure it- if he sees his shadow, we will get 6 more weeks of winter, if he doesn't, we'll get a month and a half

Well I'd like to know who organised the rain for FNQ [Far North Queensland] . . . they're all flooded now and we haven't seen a drop here in SEQ [South East Queensland] . . . I think someone mucked it up . . . . . . 30C+ again for us today, monotonous regularity ensues . . .

47*C today on my verandah. Was travelling for a few hours today after a bit of a night out. Beautiful air conditioning blowing on me ... nearly died when arriving home and I jumped out.

Any of the Canadians got a spare room I could rent?? (and the airfare to get me there? LOL)

Oh my goodness - I can't imagine living in conditions that are that hot. I find 37 unbearable and cannot even imagine 47!
We are at the other end of the spectrum. It's been so cold here that the air is so dry your sinuses bleed.
We've got two humidifiers going, but their filters need to be cleaned (TODAY!) and they're not making that much of a difference.
We had an interesting drive on the highway yesterday because of blowing snow.
When it's this cold the snow is dry and a strong wind (which we had yesterday) picks it up and moves it around very easily.

Yes, the backs of my hands are bleeding badly these days - my job means that I wash my hands hundreds of times a day, and can't wear hand cream until I get home.
I find plus 47 as unbelievable as minus 47 - both unfit for humans.

Hey Copago --- if you send some heat my way, and I'll blow/send some cold your way, as we seem to have lots of cold to spare.

We're definitely in a deep freeze here --- It is now nearing 1pm and so far today the temperature has managed to get up to -17°C, but with the windchill it's the equivalent of -30°C. For the same price, I'll even throw in some of that blowing snow Skunkee referred to as I'm starting to get tired of the blowing snow/whiteouts around here over the past few days.

According to the long-term forecasts we're stuck with these temperatures for the next couple of weeks --- time to go throw another chunk of wood on the fire.

Whereabouts are you, ElfTwinkle? I'm in Alberta, near the Sask border, and it's been nasty here. Only minus 15 today, though, without much snow, so not too bad.

I thought my 44°C (111°F) in September 2000 was hot, but I can't imagine what 117°F would feel like. Hope there isn't much (or any(!)) humidity there! After seeing snow early Friday morning (2am CST), it's been fairly nice today. I think we reached just below 60°F (15°C), which is slightly above average for this time of year.

Woke up to -19 Celcius, -29 with wind chill. I expect my kids will be asking for rides tro school, but I'll just be happy if the van starts seeing as it wasn't used at all yesterday!

Southwestern Ontario --- on a dairy farm out in the sticks (in the middle of both nowhere and everywhere)

I woke up to -19°C but windchill of -33°C --- I think we got up to about -14°C this afternoon but the windchill stayed around -25°C.

One weather report I heard today suggested it might stay like this till the end of Febrauary.

Yikes! I just looked at the conversion of ElfTwinkles temperature and it is essentially the same as here in Ohio the past two nights, bubbling around -30°F with wind chill figured in. While that's considerably inconvenient it is also downright dangerous! I heard today that EVERY public school in the whole state had closed.
Blech .

Well, one of the few times it is warmer here in the winter than Southern Ontario - we're doing quite well just now. It's about minus 8, with light snow and gentle winds. It's the wind that makes the difference between OK and horrible, I find.
