The wind chill depends on the winds speed (IE, miles per hour). The stronger the wind the lower the wind chill. It could be 3 degrees outside but because of the speed of the wind it will feel like -6 degrees for an example. Does that make sense? I'm no meteorologist!

Right now its 5 degrees here, suppose to get a couple of inches of snow tomorrow. I dont mind though, at least it will guarantee a white Christmas. I guess I'm one of the few that isnt bothered by the cold weather. I hate it when its 95 degrees with 90% humidity just as much if not more than when its cold. Anywhere you go there is some form of bad weather or phenomena.

So this is a bit like when Im perched on the front of a boat, eating mangos in my bikini, and due to the movement of the boat theres a bit of a chill in the air so I drap a piece of gauze over my person?

You do realize that those of us freezing our asses off up here are going to have to come there and beat you sensless, don't you?


Then again, if we take the time and effort to travel to OZ, perhaps hitting the beach would be a better use of our time... Hmmm...tough decision...

Basically when the wind blows, it feels colder than it actually is.

I just had to add that last week, I saw I guy walking outside wearing a just a T-shirt and shorts. It was about +5. It's either global warming or the apocalypse.
I've found the last couple of Decembers to be fairly warm (I can't say specifically about last year, as I was in NYC at this time, but the rest of December seemed unusually warm). I remember walking around on Whyte Ave and the temperature being something like +9. So I guess we can't complain to much... at least until January.

Walking around in a T-shirt and shorts at +5 almost seems reasonable considering that a couple of weeks ago when we had that cold spell of around -23, some guy was wearing the same thing.

I would so hate that at this time of year. That is one reason I have no plans to ever live in the far southern U.S.

I was watching the Weather Channel again tonight, and my old towns that I've lived in could actually see their lows below zero this week (sure, after I move away, they get the true cold winter weather...). It's thankfully supposed to get fairly cold here this week, but they're saying right now that Christmas Day our highs could be in the 40s...and I'm hoping that doesn't turn out to be true, 'cause if it is, that means that if we did get any snow this week, it'd melt. Hopefully it'll be a little colder than predicted that day.

It is so cold in Michigan!

Last night, I stayed at someone else's place...and he doesn't turn the heat on.

I have a spare room. It's 93 F here and it feels pretty nice and cool compared to what it used to be. Anyone for Christmas in the Sahara Desert?

When I walked to work this morning it was like 10F (-12C) w/ -15F (-26C) windchill, and the wind was blowing solid.

Snot-freezing-in-your-nose-kids-can't-even-go-out-for-recess cold

A few more weeks and I'll be on the equator in the African summer
