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.

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.

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.

We're back to winter again here too. Light snow and somewhere around -16C with a windchill. Brrr. The roads are a hazard now with the snow, melting and re-freezing, my road has 8 inches of ice on it with ruts.I t's so slick that if you get stuck in a rut, it's tough to get back out - even with my studded tires.  Kinda fun though.

 

Oh well, better now than April.   :P

It's been mighty chilly here too, Nicole.  For much longer periods than the norm. However, there is no 8 inches of ice on the roads.  :blink: I have so much respect for Canadians.....they are tough when it comes to winter. You even manage to find the fun in it and yes, I like driving in the snow.  It can be very fun!

I'm so glad I'm not in the range of that evil vortex. Vortex just sounds like an evil word too. It's a gloomy day today and we expect rain, but it's rain! It's mid-30's and will probably end up making for some slick overnight and morning travel but I can't be bothered to worry about that since I don't send my husband out in it until the roads have had a chance to be cleared.

Maybe she should have come to visit you instead. With this crazy weather at least she would have had a better shot at escaping winter.

She is staying there for a month while they break ground for building her house.(I TOLD them to build down here , but ...) 

I can only imagine what she's thinking right now.

I suspect I'll be getting an email full of expletives any minute. :lol:

I guess the polar vortex has broken up but now we got the cold weather again! It has been COLD for a few days with high temps around -20C and a bit of a windchill that took it down into the minus 30's.  Brrr. My car doesn't like it. Even though I had the car's block heater plugged in, and I let it run 5 minutes before I drove, it was still cold enough that the power steering and brakes took a few blocks to thaw out enough to work.  LOL

 

It's warmer today. It's -22C at the moment but it's supposed to warm up to -12C. It feels warm. The boys and I were outside in pj's earlier putting Canada flags into the snow on the yard whereas if we'd trie that a couple of days ago we would have been shivering for half an hour afterwards... scratch that, we wouldn't have gone out in only pj's a few days ago. LOL

 

It's a shame Calgary doesn't have the Olympics this year - we have great conditions for it! ;)

The schools have run out of snow days.  :rolleyes: The roads have been plowed well enough to have school today even though the wind chill was at negative 22 degrees. :ph34r:

 

More snow for Saturday!  We are going to be battling flooding when all this (record setting)  starts to melt. :o
