Is it cold where you are? It's cold here.

At least the **** wind stopped blowing. It was bad enough Friday the doors to the hospital couldn't close so the wind worked it's way through the whole building. Now I'm in my office, which has crappy climate control, and my boss has my space heater. I'm equipped to handle weeks of minimal sunlight and pouring rain, not sub-freezing temperatures. Brrr.

Did I mention it's cold? Smiley: rolleyes

Yes it is. Last week was warm with above freezing temperatures which is making this week(end) feel all that much colder. It swung 15-20 degrees (that's a 65-70* degree swing for you yanks) in about 2-3 days




*if my math is right, which it probably isn't

Haven't gotten anything down in Austin (besides degrees in the 20s), but my hometown has been iced in since Friday. It's been bad, especially since the first reaction for most people in the south when ice happens is "panic and immediately forget how to drive."

They keep saying snow for us too, but we've only gotten a dusting. If it's going to be cold there needs to be snow. Smiley: motz

Warm weather by Thursday.

@#%^ snow. Smiley: mad
Snow looks pretty and gives me an excuse for being late to work. I can stay under the nice warm blankets an extra 15 minutes and blame the commute.

I think it's around 37°F here, which isn't so bad. The gross freezing rain this morning is the part I don't like.

Yeah freezing rain is the worst. Much like when you get that first light snow, and it melts during the day, then freezes at night..and leaves all your roads covered in a nice layer of smooth ice. Fun for sneaker skating...but not much else.

It warmed up today (-4) but it'll drop down to -22 tomorrow. So average.

Assuming my Fahrenheit to Celsius math is correct, you guys live in freaky countries.

As long as it's more correct than Ugly's I'd say you're on to something.

I took 20 and multiplied by 1.8 and added 32. That's the math an online search told me and since I know no better, that's what I went with.

Since most of the US (especially the Midwest) is so far from the ocean, you get some pretty insane temperature extremes. So yeah, freaky countries indeed.

Plus you Euros get your super nice Gulf Stream and the relatively warm weather it brings.

You don't want to add 32 when talking about a net shift.

But it was quite the swing our temps went from ~50F to about ~15F in a couple of days there (which is what I'm guessing you were talking about, since our weather is similar to yours or something). 30-40 degree change.

That would make sense, not adding the 32.


I thought you were West Coast or something.. I get the same weather as NE, but typically warmer winters and colder summers.

Am, I thought you were like Vancouver B.C. area or something? (not that I'm any better at remembering). Since our weather here in Portland tends to be similar, albeit a few degrees warmer, assuming that east wind isn't shooting like a fire hydrant out of the gorge.

You guys need to switch to Celsius. Smiley: oyvey

Fahrenheit makes no sense at all.

If it wasn't inegral to our entire way of life.. sure.. since its been ingrained in us since elementary school! Wait.. I don't care. Every digital thing in the world shows both F/C anyway, so we refuse to change and you can just click the button that changes it.

But it gets confusing when someone forgets to add the F or C.

I disagree. You guys have the whole 0 degrees freezing, 100 degrees boiling thing going on, so cool for that, but to me Fahrenheit shows small differences a lot better, and without having to go to stupid and ugly decimal places.

Yea, the US has it right with F. That whole not using metric is retarded though.
