I don't know how cold it is here, but it's too damn cold. I looked forward to being in the south for a reason!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is NOT normal weather for southeastern VA cotton field country. We're dyin' here! This is very rare and no one is used to it. Half the time our winter temps don't even go below 32 F at night much less during the day. This sucks. I am sorry for all of you who live with these conditions all the time, and I wonder how you start your cars. I guess if you're used to it, but I couldn't stand a whole winter like this!
Heh, yeah, coming from northern Iowa, I'm definitely used to it. Sure, trying to start your car in the morning can be a pain, and sure, trying to manuever icy or snowy roads can be quite the adventure, but my family's adapted well to it. I can see where it'd be hard for you, though (I've always gotten a kick out of seeing people in areas who don't usually see snow or really cold weather react when they actually get it-it just amuses me for some reason). I've felt MUCH colder temperatures than what you're feeling now, too. I remember once when I was little, school was closed one day, not because of a snowstorm-no, it was a beautiful day outside in that respect-but because it was bitterly cold. Our actual temperature was, like, -40 something, and our wind chill was -60 something. Yeah.

By the way, happy day for me-it snowed last night . Not a lot of snow on the ground, probably about 2 or 3 inches or so, but hey, it's something at least. And since it's not gonna be very warm for the next few days, that means it'll stick. Now if it can just stay cold on Christmas Day, we're good to go .

As for our temperature right now, last I checked it was about 35 degrees and we had a wind chill of 22.

At least there is no snow here in Toronto. That's about the only saving grace at the moment.

It snowed here last night, we only got an inch, but we got that inch in about an hour. It hasn't gotten out of the teens, with 30 mph winds. We couldn't open my mom's car doors this morning, and as I was scraping my car, even with gloves, my hands would go numb. I would go inside, warm up, then go back out. Repeat. And this is Richmond Virginia! We never get this cold!

It's NOT like that here right now, though it is pretty windy and cold!
For about a week last Jan/Feb, it was like that (-45 plus wind). I was living in a rural area at the time and with the wind chill the temp was -65! No one should have to go to work/school in that kind of weather - I can't believe my car started!
Anyway, I'm just hoping that we don't get similar weather this January!

We learn to suffer through it.

It's only in the upper sixties and sunny today. I may need a jacket if I go back out.

That is a miracle, indeed. Wow.

I remember one year staying overnight in a city for some reason or other, and it was VERY cold then, and the next day, when we went to get in our car, our seats, the steering wheel-basically the entire car inside and out and everything that we had inside it were COLD. Freezing cold. Even our blankets that we kept in the car were cold.

My dad said that according to the people here in my town, January and February are the months where our area gets the coldest weather and most of our big snow. So we're gonna have to get prepared for that soon if that's the case. They can even see snow up through June sometimes out here (not a LOT of snow, just a few inches or so, but still...that would be odd).

The nice thing about living in the apartment building that we live in, though-we're on the second floor, so we don't have to worry nearly as much about pipes freezing up, and we don't have to pay the heating bills (the people who run the apartment building pay that stuff). So the only concerns we'll have are trying to start the car in the morning and trying to drive on icy or snowy roads (and considering how hilly some of the roads are out here, that could be a bit on the tricky side).

The annoying thing about Sunbelt Decembers is that it can be freezing one day and warm the next day. It's very cold today but it's going up to 60+ tomorrow. It's exactly the kind of weather that gives you the flu!!

I woke up to freezing rain today! I was almost an hour late to work and I have a less than 15 minute drive normally.



One of my coworkers has to take her son to school on her way to work so she ended up have a 3 hour drive today

And it's only the beginning of the season.....

Were you here last January? I'm a bit worried considering the mild weather we've been having lately. -45 plus wind
Oh, that wind yesterday was horrific! I couldn't sleep until 2:30 this morning because it was keeping me up. Then I had to shovel four foot snow drifts off my sidewalk.

I was here last January -- and taking public transportation every day when it was that cold out. I won't soon forget it.
