Seems to be. I've just broken the ice on my pond for the third time today. Brrrr!

Yet, the fish are popping up, (through the hole created) open mouthed, waiting to be fed. Daft boggers!

No way they're getting my Yorkshire pud :O )

It doesn't seem to be too cold yet in Northern Ireland, although having said that, I have had to crank the heating up a notch or too so perhaps the cold weather is slowly approaching.

-5 most of the morning in Oxford; I'm not sure it reached positive figures! My car had serious ice on it this morning, took 15 minutes to defrost as water simply re-froze!

HA...child's play. We've already had several days in Ottawa where it hasn't got out of the negative double digits (-15C) and it's not even Winter yet (well, not for another day).

That's nothing, it's been no warmer than -35F (-38C) here for the last several days. In fact right now it's -44F (-42C). -15C sounds pretty nice right now.

It has been below zero (F) in Kenai for a week. We'll manage to get into the plus teens this week.

At work, Glennallen, it's been in the minus 20s(F) for a week, and dropping.

Yup, it's frackin cold!

In Central Florida we have had 3 nights of frost already this year. Normal for the winter is probably 3 to 5 times a year and never untill january. I have lost my Banana trees already and had some damage to my Palms and Citrus. Last winter was very cold for us and it looks like it will be again this winter. I lost two Citrus trees last winter.

Finally getting above freezing in the northern suburbs of Chicago today. Thank goodness I'm going home tomorrow morning where it has finally cooled off in ATL after our usual (not global warming effect) mid-December heat wave into the 70s.

Quoting ZakHH (Reply 3):
Cue the "see-there-is-no-global-warming" comments in 5... 4... 3... 2... 1...

What cracks me up though is how much global warming gets used for the root cause of stuff.

Lots of hurricanes...must be global warming
No hurricanes...must be global warming
Hot summers...has to be global warming
Cool summers...it's that damn global warming again
No snow...global warming to the rescue
Record snowfalls...global warming to the rescue

I'm not saying it isn't happening but I am saying that it gets overused as the reason behind changes in the weather just a bit much these days.

Do what we always did when living in Florida. Turn the sprinklers on the citrus trees and freeze them at 32 with a cover of ice. We never lost one when we did that year after year.

Right now its +44F - and it seems cold to my warm-blooded body. once you get past the teens, I don't think you can feel a difference. But then again, I haven't been in anything colder than -7

Must have been at least -5 here the past few days.

I love it though, the picturesque setting of a nice bright sun, shining on a frosted field, seeing the robins in the trees, singing along...

Ugh, it's been in the upper 30s and 40s most of the past two weeks. I hate it!

It's winter, let it snow. It's been 12 years since the Blizzard of '96, the best storm I can ever remember (narrowly beating out the Blizzard of 1983  Smile). I think we're about due for another monster in the mid-Atlantic in 2008! Here's to hoping  bouncy
