    In this room right now it is 17°C or 63°F. Outside the BBC website says it's 4°C where I live.

    Brrrrrr. And yes, my toes are going numb.

    LOL, Aubrey said that if SC had gotten the snow we're getting today (about 2-4inches) the state would have shut down :D

    Or ice... or even the hint of ice. I'm sure you have the local news stories about turning your heaters on. "Look out people. We are turning our heaters on." ( have to remind people to be responsible around their space heaters. ) :roll:

    It's 39°F outside right now and it's 14:52 as I type. They rekon it'll be 35°F (for you backwards °F people). I live in what is regarded as one of the warmest parts of the UK. Not the warmest parts, but one of.

    I put a halogen heater on a few minutes ago and the temperature has rocked up to... 17°C.

    I'm just happy the schools have broken up for Christmas or I'd be spending my afternoon walking around if this. Now I'll just have to wait a couple of weeks when it will be even colder. Oh joy.
    Then in the summer this 17°C will turn into a 45°C room. :shock:

    It's well bellow freezing here. Yesterday & today, we are having wind gusts up to 100 kph (62 mph) with blowing snow & hail.

    Sections of the city lost power when trees fell on the lines. I even saw a railway crossing arm that had snapped off in the wind.

    Some poor guy was killed not far from here. He was kite boarding (snow board & kite) on a frozen lake and was blown into the side of a building.

    Hey! That's what today and tomorrow are going to be like. 30s in the morning mid 60s in the afternoon. I personally am not a fan of winter, but I can tolerate the southern ones. :D
