Sure hope you are right. Just took my dog out for a walk and it is -33C out there at the moment and even if I see it on TV at least there is hope. Thanks for reminding me. I am from Ontario Canada, out west in Canada today it was -50C

Oh yeah, here in Bowling Green State University, the windchill has been below 0 for more than a week.

Even the heaters in the University's C172's barely work.

I guess they don't call it "Windy Green" for a reason.

Dam...yes, up here in the "Great White North" winter has arrived and we are freezing our arses off!!!  yes 

But...as true Canadians....we do love our winter with snow flakes falling and looking out and seeing the ground all white!!! Now driving in it is another thing...for those of us who know how to drive in the snow it is not a problem. For those that don't....Good Luck!!!

But, Spring is just around the corner and it will warm up and everything will once again begin to grow....I can't wait!!!

Is it bad that we can say it is only going to drop to -7 F tonight with wind chill values only getting to about -30 F? Late January kicked my ass and this month is shaping up to be just as cold! Maybe it is time to head back to Texas...

This is what's getting me through these days. When I'm not freezing my ass off I'm thinking about baseball. Once in a while I can multi-task and do both at the same time.

Can't wait until WGN starts showing the Cubs spring training games in March. And only a little over a week until pitchers and catchers report to Mesa. It's about time!

Yes indeed, up here in the northeast, we're paying dearly for having a mild winter through December.

It's pretty unusual to see wind chills below zero for weeks on end.

Nowadays, they close the schools if someone sneezes the wrong way. I remember walking to school when it was -35 F. That was before there was a thing called "wind chill."

I agree, but, I cant really complain, seeing as I got 2 days off because of it.

Don't know about that driving, youse guys scare me to death.....I went up the Canadian side in December 2005 and I've got to say there were a lot of people on that wimpy little thing youse guys call a superhighway (401) and they had no fear of death. I gotta say I was most relieved to get across to the American side in Buffalo....

I was cruising along in a pretty good snowstorm doing about 45 mph and all these bozos were behind me flickin the lights and such...Had I sped up, I would have been right at ground zero when the guy who went blasting past me on a Ford Galaxie got sideways and went across three lanes and ended in the ditch.

Here in Columbus OH, on Monday it was 5 F with a windchill of -24

Just as a test, i decided to see how fast water froze. I spiked my hair up, and sure enough about 15 feet later, my hair was solid ice.

-33C in Hamilton? You must be talking with the windchill. Considering the recorded low in Hamilton yesterday was -18C, either you're not in Hamilton or you're talking windchill.  Smile

Thunder Bay's been down to -31C in the last few days - NOT with the windchill, that's real temperature. The high on Feb 3 was -25C. I do kinda miss that weather! It's about 10C in Seattle right now. I had the windows open yesterday when it was 15C out.  Smile
