Guess I better not bitch about my area probably getting snow (3"-6") Wendesday or so and then the temps dropping to 0 (F) after reading other people's posts....

But I have electric baseboard heat and one of my heaters in this room (the main living area, of course), went "flash, BOOM, smoke", so that's not working (the circuit breaker tripped, so there is no fire risk...but no heat either). So until I get that replaced I use a couple of space heaters when I'm in here and let it get cold when I'm not (it will drop to mid 50's overnight -- of course, now it's going to get colder, so it will drop even more).

But as replacing it costs money I'm not planning on doing that until after the new year...and now it's going to get cold. On the good side...my electric bill should be low for this month.

Oh, well, break out the shorts and tank tops, then, huh? LOL.

I discovered tonight that my sweater I'm wearing does its job quite well. We go into a store, and I'm sweating after a while, 'cause it's so warm in there. Then we come back out, and I'm thankful to have it on, 'cause otherwise I'd be freezing.

Bless whoever invented sweaters.

Heh, they're not doing so hot (literally) either at the moment. It's 35F in Pensacola and 56F in Naples (very Southern Fla).
It better warn the F up in the next few days.

67 deg here in San Diego, but with the wind chill it honestly feels like 65. It was in the 70's yesterday.

It's 21 degrees here right now, and our wind chill is 12.

And we have some snow flying around, too !!!!

Is 96% humidity as uncomfortable in cold weather as it is in hot weather?

wow, i'm not exactly sure what numbers constitute hellish humidity here, but that sounds really bad


i've decided i really like the negative windchills - it makes 20-degree weather feel warm.
