Any other U.S people feeling this? There's been sub ZERO wind chills these past 2 nights which is highly uncommon for in early January. Plus with snow falling and high winds, theres been some pretty bad weather here. It's still gonna come and get worse during this week.

So, any U.S'ers in here?

Nah, a low of 18F tonight is about average for the season. Next week it's supposed to get back up to the 40's.

Yup, on the East Coast (for me)...I can't stand the cold! However, we've had colder days in December so this is really nothing.

I think I can come closer than most people here. I work outside, all day, four days a week in this rubbish. Not quite as bad as Afgahanistan, but it still sucks.


-10F wind chills today. It's so cold that the plows don't bother salting the roads.

The permit to do so is about $25,000.00.

Totally worth it, if you ask me. Not many people are able to say they've done that. It would be an amazing experience. :mis:

It's been pretty average where I live. It's about 10 right now and it's been between -10 and 20 on average here in northern Wisconsin. That's pretty normal for this time of year.

I'm getting highs of 40+F. It's raining pretty good.
I wish it would get colder. I don't mind the cold. Been through -60F wind chills before. That's the kind of cold that goes through you no matter how many layers you have on. Exposed skin can freeze in less than a minute. It makes you eyes water, then it tries to freeze. Good thing tears are salty.

It isn't really cold until it hits 0. :p

I got up a couple of hours ago and here in the UK where I am (Manchester) pretty much everyone is staying home from school and work - the snow is terribly thick and people can't even get out of the street :D

Yeah, it's pretty cold in Illinois as well (Southern Illinois mind you, not windy Chicago). High of 15F tomorrow, and a low of 4F supposedly... while I'm used to cold weather, this is kinda pushing it...

Minus 60F? Where'd you go? Antarctica? 0_0


Here it's -7C, which would be something around -50F?... It was colder yesterday though, and snowing a lot. Supposed to get warmer towards the end of the week, which is good, because I have school on the weekend.

-7C = 19.4F


Yesterday morning we had -20C(-4F).
And we got about 30cm(1ft) of snow.

Nope it's always hot on the west coast we don't know what this so called "cold" is.
Seriously wth it would be nice to have some cold days we have only had a few and it is winter.
