Cold Snowy Winter Comin'............ Git Ready

. I can adjust to cold better - you can always put on more clothes.

 

 

I said that for years, until that was just a crock.  :lol: (for me)

 

Well, 30 Celcius is warm, but not  oppressive. (to me)

 

If it's "too hot" down here,  you go inside....that's why they Invented central air.

 

Honestly, by the ocean, there is a breeze and I have been here in August and never felt like it was that horrid.

 

Maybe our bodies are all different? I tolerate extreme cold for a while and then,  can tolerate extreme hot the same way....I'd prefer moderate, of course.

 

Next time you come here, please call me :)

Yes, I think you are right. We're all different and used to different things... 30C is warm but not oppressive?  LOL When it hits 30C up here, which is usually does for a week each summer, I am melting. It's not warm enough for air conditioning up here unless you are in the richer area. The bedrooms on the upper floor get sooo hot but I can't justify AC when we only need it 10 days a year... Darn it.  B)

 

After I wrote how 10C is shorts weather I stopped to think about how my teeth will chatter when I first sit in a car on a cold day - you know when it's cold enough that the heater can't actually make it warm in the car until you get moving?  I'm not as tough as I like to think I am.  LOL

well, I think you're a pretty tough cookie, hon! ;)  (in a good way!!) 

 

And for all my tough girl talk, let's see how I feel about "extreme hot" this July. Maybe it's different when you are just "visiting" as opposed to 

living it for months and months. 

 

I'll probably have to start a "Hot sweltering summer" thread and whine there..... then you can say "told ya, Irish".  :lol:

It is 1 degree farenheit / -17 c and the schools stayed open!  Rabbits are in the tub as the temp is dropping to -6 F.

 

Today I would move in a heartbeat!  Everyone here has the winter blahs.  Seriously we are all vitamin D deficient.

10" on the ground already, still coming down hard, 19* and I'm starting to get the chills down to my bones. Something tells me I am going to be sick real soon.

It's been really warm here (50's) for the past couple of weeks, but tomorrow night it's supposed to go down to 6 below with a 20 below wind chill. But by Friday it'll be back in the 50's. :)

 

Shadow usually get's nearly the same weather we do. I haven't seen her here in a while. Hey Shadow, are you OK?

It's been warm here too, in the 40s most days. It's going to be chilly for a few days but will be warm again on Friday.

oh thank goodness, I just asked Karen if she had "seen you" on any of the threads. I figured you were on break, but when I do not see you for a while, I do start to worry a little bit.... What can I say, you're our "kid". lol

 

OK

 

It is cold here today and I know you are all happy about it so :P The neighbors cover their veggie  gardens at nighttime. 

 

I am still wearing sandals and stubbornly refuse to give in. I did put one of J's shirts on over my gym clothes and if you can imagine a 5'4" woman wearing a 6'4" guy's flannel shirt, the sleeves rolled up 5 times over, the shirt looking much like a dress, then you've got a visual

on my very chic attire this morning. B) a walking giant plaid glamour don't! eh, who cares...still had on my shorts. he he he 

 

Friends back  in NY report 6 degrees and a few inches of new snow. I'll keep my "flannel dress" and stick it out for a few days of "cold" snap....because by tomorrow it will back in the 70's.

Who's the wise guy that  sent the polar vortex down here?

 

It was 40 at 6:00 am. That's just wrong. I had to drape my sleeping cat over me like a blankie to stay warm.

I know I should be thankful, but I am sick of summer and long for some rain. It is so dusty and dirty! I bought some new winter clothes during the holidays and I can not even wear the sweaters. Flip flops and capris are my daily attire with a hoodie tossed on when evening comes or I shop.

That said, my heart goes out to those I snowy areas. I have not had to live through a cold winter since I was a toddler (and have no memories of it!)

Have great day and I will keep on dusting and sweeping.

I don't like heat either. I love it when it rains though.

Woohoo! Alberta was warmer than Florida. Nah-na-na-na-nah! :P It was 10C here most of the day - that's about 50F, right? It's supposed to snow in a day but I'll enjoy this while I can.

 

My MIL called to say their snowdrops and crocuses are up and blooming out on Vancouver Island... the ground here is still so frozen that when I dropped my metal water bottle in the yard, it was dented.  LOL Crocuses are for April or May out here.

Oh hush up, you little wiseacre!  :lol: Tomorrow, it should be back up in the 70's. Thank goodness. I did not move here to have temps

less than Alberta! lol I do laugh at the people dressed in layers as if it's Vermont..

 

ohmygosh, I thought Vancouver Island was one of the most delightful places I have ever visited (this was years ago and I keep saying "we should go back there!" to the hubs but we're getting older and we have to visit other new places first. lol).

And I am giggling at the dented water bottle, having dented my butt a few times on frozen ground in NY. I was not very good at negotiating

icy sidewalks....lol

51 for a high today. Lows in the mid-30's. But by tomorrow night it's supposed to drop to 2 below.

 

What a rollercoaster this winter has been!

Seriously. It's like Mother Nature is bipolar or something this year. I can't leave the house at any given moment without checking the weather because not only between days, but in the same day I have no idea if I will go from needing a coat to not or vice versa. Mother Nature needs to get back on her meds.

They said on the radio yesterday that the rollercoaster here is over, and to expect a normal February. OK, so that means it's going to be stinking cold for the next month! :angry: So far the forecast shows it. Cold (a little below zero last night), near 50 tomorrow, then 30's for the forseeable future. We probably have at least one more good-sized snowstorm ahead before it's over too.

This is the most perfect description of the weather this wintah!  I love it....bipolar!  :lol:

 

It is 18 degrees F here in Boston today but I like it because the sun is out and shining brightly.  I can handle anything if the sun is out.  We have had our fill of grey, gloomy days so far.  I can handle grey and gloomy if it rains but not when there is dirty snow everywhere and I can't get my cah washed because it's too cold for the cah wash to run. Nothing worse than a cah covered in sand and salt......yuck!  And if Irishheart pipes up and tells me how clean her cah is in the 80 degree heat, I'll send the polar vortex down to get her!

:angry::ph34r:

I'm not sure she's going to be quite as amused, and maybe it's because I'm still a little loopy this evening, but that's pretty funny. I'd hide though, she may make good on that threat. It was almost warm enough today to sit out by a roaring fire to enjoy our pizza instead of staying inside, but my husband wasn't quite as adventurous as me. Oh well, maybe next time.
