    Now it’s -6° F. The high today is 7° F.


    I love winter but c’mon let’s keep it above freezing during the day please.

    Currently -14 with a windchill of -26. I’m not looking forward to going back outside at the end of my shift!!

    It’s 41 degrees right now and I love it. I have the window open so it’s nice and chilly in the room.

    Well I am in the Southern Hemisphere, and it is Summer right now. So it’s about 33 degrees Celsius, 90 degrees Fahrenheit. I don’t like the cold, but I love snow!

    It’s 32 F, which is pretty cold for where I live, but I feel like I shouldn’t complain!

    ETA: PS. It’s night

    @AB Bride: 

    Ugh!  You’re one of those! “I like it when it gets really cold I can look cute in winter clothes”   lol

    There’s nothing cute about trying to prevent your eyelashes freezing to each other!  I would love if it warmed up to around freezing!

    I’m not a fan of the cold.  I don’t mind if it’s -10C.  If I’m not outside for a long period I wear a lighter winter jacket.  Once it gets to -15C or colder, the clothing starts to get less cute.

    No, I am not “one of those!” I would freaking hate to have weather where it was so cold that I was trying to prevent my eyelashes from freezing together. My cold is obviously relative to my area, but I never said “I like it when it gets really cold I can look cute in winter clothes” I said, “I also get to dress up in my cute winter clothes if I decide to go out and brave the cold.” IF I decide to go out. It isn’t as if the moment it gets cold outside I go running for the coat closet and put together the cutest outfit I can. I happen to own two very cute coats (though light jackets to you probably) that I love wearing, and I never get to because it rarely gets cold enough to justify wearing them, so you bet your butt that if I go out I’m going to wear one. Plus the new ear cover headband thing that my friend made me, and a pair of gloves. I like being able to “bundle up”, it makes me feel happy.

    I LOVE it when it gets cold like this because I don’t get a lot of cold where I am. It gets up to in the 90s starting as early as April some years, and JUST THIS TUESDAY the high reached 85F. Heck, yesterday it was 66F, and it’s going to be back up to in the 60s this time next week. Actually, schools are delayed tomorrow because there is freezing rain – we get freezing temperatures plus rain so little that most people around here don’t know how to drive in this weather.

    So obviously, you and I come from very different climates, and trying to insult the joy I find in finally getting something other than “warm to hot” weather is just plain mean and uncalled for, even if you were trying to be funny.

    I’m not loving the weather today. Its 2C where I am, so cold but nothing like it is for some of you guys. However it is also miserable and due to a combination of weather incidents we are on a servere flood alert. I was up most of the night moving things in my business ‘in case’ the water came in and some of the people I work with were evacuated from their homes. I was back in work again this morning at 7am after less than three hours sleep. But we escaped the water last night and it looks as though the high tide at 1pm today will not be so bad. Relief.

    It’s 37 in the Palm Springs desert right now!  It gets that cold in winter, even colder.  We’re just lightweights & can’t handle it.

    @LynnSnow:  Sorry, I really didn’t mean it as an insult.  There was a thread a while ago about what people wear when it starts to get really cold and there were things in there like jeans.  Jeans don’t work for my “really cold”.

    There are days that I wish it didn’t get so cold here.  Humour helps deal with it.  I am glad you get to have fun with the weather when it gets cold there!
