and I'm a smoker (which means I have to do that dirty deed outside)

A little late and OT, but I never knew... you hide it from the rest of the group well.

  But somehow people always forget how to drive in the stuff.  Amazing.
Doesn't ever go away (it seems, and it doesn't for five months) here and people are still morons. 

Seems warm here, -18 C (0F) and snowing but anything not below -30 C feels warmish these days.  Days are getting longer though, so only three months to go.

It's been in the teens and low 20's here in St. Paul!!!  YAY!!  Warm weather!!  Looks like we're dipping back down to the -20's next week though.  YAY!!  Freezing cold and SNOW!!   ::)

It's lame, but I try and hide it from people the best I can - even the dirty smokers at work.  I think Jayson caught me one day outside of Red Robin before one of our meetings. 

We tend to obviously multiply in MN on this board here for some reason.  Most of you guys are really missing out on the fun factor of having so many local collectors in one area at one spot.

I didn't catch the exact forecast for tomorrow, but I heard the "it' word again... hopefully not before work and not after. But that's asking a lot in an imperfect world. Just means I am anxiously warm weather more.

January update:  It's cold!

Will report back in six months with the next update.

(Prediction:  It's gonna be hot!)

Depending on where you live in the Twin Cities you got anywhere from 4-6 inches of snow yesterday. Then the winds started up. It was -16 F (-27 C for you Canadians) on one sign on my way in to work this morning. The lower 2/3 of MN is in a Wind Chill Advisary (between -20 and -40) the upper 1/3 is in a Wind Chill Warning (-45 to -60) for the day.


How bad is it in Canada aye?

Ballpark me as just north of the upper 1/3 of Minnesota, so same stuff here.  Tomorrow's a bit nicer, only -50 with the windchill.   ;)

We're getting a swift kick in the nuts in the next couple days, of the cold air you guys are pooping onto our area.  So we're looking at similar temps with windchills I think.  Not -50 or 40, but I've heard -25 to -30 for Pittsburgh...  Low's of 0 or -1's, high's that if you make double digits, you're probably down in the city and fortunate.

And of course all the obligatory scattering around to get heaters, food, and other random stupidity is going along with it.  We're getting some snow too but I pray to god nothing comes Saturday.  I need Saturdays to be ok.

We're looking at highs in the low single digits with wind chills in the -20 range today and tomorrow.  The weather guy commented it was warmer in Fairbanks Alaska yesterday.  >:(

Still, this is the coldest weather we've had all winter, and probably all last winter too, so I'll shaddup before some Minnesotians, or Canadian-Americans, put me in my place.

It's snowing again today in the NYC area.  Great.

It's -7°C right now & it's going to go to 7°C for the next 3 days. Boy the driving will be fun on the slushy/sloppy roads & with the melt that has no place to go.  :-\

Today it is going to be about 83 degrees. Which is a good 15 degrees higher than the average temperature for today in Anaheim.

Woke up this morning to -21 F and wind chill near -40F. The pipes to my kitchen froze, luckily they didn't break. My wife is presently attempting to thaw them.
