Still nice and warm here in Croatia. Lush and very, very green. Back in Canada? Not so much...

You'll probably have a crust of ice on your windows when you get back! I can't figure out why you don't just stay in Croatia. A perfect paradise sure sounds better than living in a freezer box.

So sorry you're already getting hit with snow. It's cold in RI & that's caused the foliage to be lackluster. Lots of bare trees already. Praying the snow doesn't cause power outages or other bad conditions for you! Those of you in warmer climates have the right idea!

Starting next May we will be living here and cannot wait. Just one more icky winter to get through!!! There is a lot of residency red tape and such to get through but it will be so worth it in the end.

And I keep telling Love2 that May will be here before she knows it.

And soon, she will be living in her Paradise. Yaaay!! :)

 

I hate to report this, because I am not trying to be  a wiseguy-- honest--

but every day is a lovely sunny 80-something (NO humidity) and the lows are 71.

I used to live in Indiana.  I moved to Arizona to get away from the snow.  Now all I have is dust and a severe case of chronic hayfever.  So much fun.  I wasn't expecting that.  Still, I really hated the snow and truly understand what a pain it can be!

Sorry to hear of your hayfever. Not a great trade, is it?

So, we have had tons of snow on the ground for two weeks. Three blizzards with rain between so the streets are polished thick ice. Our coldest temp has been -22C thus far...soooooooooooo relieved this is our last Canadian winter!

Well a cold front moved through here and we were down to a frigid 79 on Wednesday.

I actually saw some people with leather jackets or hoodies and sweats on.

Really, people?

IT'S 79!!! I'm still sitting on the beach for crying out loud.

Good thing it went back up to 82 yesterday or these peeps would have been cranking up the heat.

Can't wait until my blood thins out like that.

Ha.  My Mom has lived in Hawaii around 10 years now and when they visit me in Ohio in August the heat, which really effects me poorly, has no effect on them and if the temperature drops below 80 they are reaching for a throw :lol:

Haha. I was talking to my daughter yesterday in AR and it was mid-60s there. She had to go outside and was getting a coat. Not a jacket, a COAT!!! I'd be out in a freakin t-shirt. And my kids both wish it snowed more. They'd probably both freeze to death.

 

We had snow yesterday. Instead of the overnight snow that melts away first thing we had snow all day long. It was sitting right around 33-34 though so it melted off the roads and only stuck on the grass. Perfect. ^_^ It'll be gone today though. Mid 40s which isn't even jacket weather with the sun out, just long sleeves.

Being used to really hot temps, then going to a place with a really cold winter is not fun.

Psh, they lived in PA before they moved. They should consider AR a tropical paradise in comparison!

LOL Ah geez! Our country's hot spots are in BC and it's cool and rainy there now.  

 

It was -20C today. I think that's about 80F less than you have down there, Irish! LOL  Winter has moved in.  :ph34r: <-- Forget ninja, dude is wearing a balaclava!

Gosh, snow on the ground last week and tornados last night.  I believe Mother Nature has "brain fog".

I seriously regret not putting on my long johns today.  (But you see yesterday it was 58 degrees)  The wind today is just bitter!  I've been chest deep in snow and felt warmer.

It was 60 yesterday and in the upper 50's earlier today. The temperature has just plummeted and it's supposed to rain/snow. They are warning that the roads will become icy quickly. I'll be heading home the minute it starts to precipitate. Supposed to be in the lower teens tonight and zero tomorrow night. By Saturday they say it'll be back in the 40's. Rollercoaster weather!

We've got cold and wet, but no snow. It's been drizzly and chilly for a few days and it looks to keep up with the same nonsense, only getting outright cold. Today it won't get much above 40, if it hits that at all. I'm fine with 40 in the sun but with drizzles? It's outright frigid! After I do a second kidney bean trial if things go well I'll officially have them and winter will be looking a little more appealing with chili in my future. Especially on days like today.  :)

This is going to sounds stupid, but I wouldn't mind a little snow right now. It feels warmer with snow than it does with cold and rain.

    • Lex_, Again I am afraid Ennis_Tx is right here. Ennis_tx eats right and is eating all the right things and still has to take/supplement with Magnesium. The magnesium is a clue?  We need magnesium to make energy. I like to say as chlorophyll is to photosynthesis for the plant so is Magnesium for/to the Animal(s). Meaning we will run down without it. It is said "we waste away without enough Magnesium" Dr. Carolyn Dean wrote the book "The Magnesium Miracle" because people genuinely feel terrific when they take it. they are able to make energy again and function properly but the question remains  why? are we low in it the first place if we need it so much. Iron plays the same role in the blood/respiration but people still get IDA. It turns out low stomach acid limits our ability to absorb Magnesium and Iron. see this link about the role of gastric acid in Iron absorption. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7286584/ How do we know this.  . . well it is has been studied and proven. look no further than the FDA box warning on PPI's entitled "FDA Drug Safety Communication: Low magnesium levels can be associated with long-term use of Proton Pump Inhibitor drugs (PPIs)" https://www.fda.gov/drugs/drugsafety/ucm245011.htm now this takes about 6 months of use to become low in magnesium but being low in stomach acid limits our ability to absorb Magnesium and why many people have to take it at 2x to 3x the RDA to get the desired effect. In fact the FDA says only stopping PPI's will reverses this condition.  Obviously  taking higher amount of Magnesium can help alleviate some of these symptom's but only raising the stomach acid will completely alleviate the condition. quoting "Although both patients' hypomagnesemia partially resolved with intravenous replacement, in both cases discontinuation of PPI treatment was necessary to stop ongoing symptoms and to stop magnesium loss." Hypomagnesimia is critically low Magnesiums akin to IDA. here is a thread about IDA and why this is so . . .  low stomach acid leads to low Iron levels. I think it will help explain why Celiac's often have to take Magnesium to help with their chronic fatigue symptom's. I hope this is helpful but when I helped my stomach acid levels my Magnesium begin to be better absorbed from the food I was eating. Nuts are good Magnesium sources especially Cashews and Almonds. So is chocolate hence Ennix_tx cocoa nibs etc. . . ***** this is not medical advice but I know taking Magnesium Citrate helped my energy levels. posterboy by the grace of God, 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things”        
    • Lots of people are diagnosed after 50 according to this https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3227015/  
    • Smaller meals throughout the day should help. I had the same problem but if it keeps up you may need to see the doctor again and get surgery. Anti-acids may help out too. It's been about 10 years since I had mine. Good luck.
    • Nobody posted anything on my profile that I'm aware of but it wouldn't let me get into it. My email got hacked though right around the same time so I just figured it was connected. I'm not exactly Y2K ready. This is the first computer I ever bought and I still have a flip phone. Maybe it's not connected. Don't really know.
