I don't remember being cold for most of my teenage years. I think the goofy must have kept me warm. When I was even younger, we all wore snowsuits!

I sure feel it now, though, as do the dogs. The thing about my foster girl is that she's built like a fire hydrant, so picking her up when her paws freeze is like deadweight. I've had to resort to just pulling out snow, rubbing them, and then trying to breathe warm air on the pads.

I don't understand -36 degree weather. Stupid question, but is it even safe to be out for long periods of time(such as waiting for a bus) in that weather?
Can't you die from that weather?

I guess it's not stupid if you haven't experienced it. But no... We still go to school and work and shopping and etc etc etc.
We just bundle up!
That's why I laugh when I hear people complain about 7, 10, -2 etc.
I mean I get that for THOSE people it's cold, but around here we'd be in a light jacket. If it goes to -2 we don't even zip our coats up LOL. In winter months anyways. It gets to +30 etc in the summer here (What is that, 95ish degrees F?) But yea, our winters are cold!

I mentioned it in the Say It thread, but I didn't have heat at the beginning of this cold, cold week. Worst timing ever. It was miserable.

I will never take indoor heating for granted again.

LOL yea. I've been wearing a sweater and heavy puffy jacket and thick scarf around my neck and ears for the 30s and winds. Just for a 4 block walk from my office to car. There are lots of tall buildings so no sun.

The other day I felt so bad i contemplated wearing hose next time under my jeans. I've never done that in Atlanta. I remember the only time I did that was in dc and in nyc. The lowest I have ever been in is about 2 degree weather. I can't imagine -20s. I really can't. The thought of it is making me nervous.

It really irks me when northerners down here try to tell ME it's not cold when it's in the 40s and I shouldn't feel that cold. It may not be cold to you but it's still cold for the south, which is where you are!

it's so cold outside that there are very few people on the streets.

this is a good thing when you get off the bus from your shopping trip and you have to walk 4 blocks to your house and Gladys Knight comes on your iPod.

then you can sing along at the top of your lungs, pretending you're on the stage in Vegas and no one looks at you like you're insane!

You crazy Canadians!

I guess everyone has their own interpretation of what standard weather is. I must say though I much rather deal with cold then sweltering in the summer. No bueno. I am a miserable slug when it is hot and humid.

No kidding there: Early last week, LA was having a 'cold snap.' The weather forcasters love it when there is any change in the weather, so they have somehting to report. Rain is their favorite word.

But the locals can be funny about the temperatures. On that first 'cold' day, it was 32 when I got up, so yes, cold. By the time we were at school, it was nearing 50. One of the other aides was wondering if we would be able to have outside recess. Then she looked at me and said: the girl from NJ thinks I'm crazy right now...I just smiled.

i remember when i was in texas for a few months they called for a cold front. i thought, "OMG! i didnt bring a winter coat, all i have is a jacket! I'm going tofreeze!" yeah, it got down to about 45 degrees and everybody freaked out and classes were canceled. i was just like, okk?

one year in new orleans, the weather was going haywire. one side of the lake got down to the 20's, the other side, where i lived got down to the 30's and it snowed!!! amazing it was and so much fun! never thought i would have a snowball fight or built a snowman in new orleans! but by late afternoon the temps rose to the 50's and instead of snow piles we had mini lakes everywhere.

KK I think being a weatherman/woman in Southern California has to be the most boring job ever. The weather got to be very monotonous after awhile. But all that sunny weather was nice.

It's 23 F here and I think that's cold! I'd die in Canada. DIE. TOTALLY DEAD. As opposed to partially dead . . .

as an FYI, Celsius only sounds colder than Farenheit until you reach -40, which is the same on both scales.

after that, Farenheit sounds colder...

so the -70 wind chills that i experienced in my hometown as a child would only be -57 in Celsius.

It's not so bad here. 20F or so. But, I'm made for this kind of weather. I'm stocky, northern gened, and have a body temp that is consistently 99.5F. I took a nice walk this morning.

I remember spending a week in Montreal when it was about 0F. My husband at the time was miserable, but I was pretty happy.

and i wish to point out that next Wednesday, the temperature here will reach a positively spring-like +10C or 50F.
