    Yep.. this thread is dedicated to everyone that is freezing their respective rear ends off. It is currently -13F with a -26 F windchill here in Denver. It hasn't broken freezing since saturday and teh high was a whopping 1 degree today. I'm a plumber so this really sucks..

    SO... Who else is freezing hard and has an un-regulated thermal enviroment? :D Speak up!

    It's a pleasant 70 degrees Fahrenheit here (21 degrees Celsius for you metric folks). Don't hate me.

    On Saturday I spent 15 mins at a bus stop. Waiting to be pick up so I can jam with the band. Yeah it was like -3.(28?) Walking a block with my bass and an amp. Wearing my jean jacket. Taking the city bus, to jam with my band. Yeah I'm cool now:D

    I just had to partially rewire my taillights on my truck in 10 degree F weather, with wind blowing, on concrete and snow.

    Let me guess...you turn on the heater to cool off! :D
     
  7. We are having our first cold spell, the low is something like 18 degrees fahrenheit. We had a little snow at the beginning of the week with a threat of more this weekend. Soon it will be in the single digits and below. :(

    I hate this weather, I should have been born somewhere closer to the equator. ;)

    I'm sweating like crazy down here.
    :crying:
    Anyone remember the scene from Terminator 2 when Sarah Conner has a vision of Armagedon and the children's playground ignites under the heat?
    That is how hot it is at the moment. :help:

    :mad: <-actual picture of my face.

    If I don't keep some water running overnight, my pipes freeze. That kinda sucks.
     
  11. It's -16 C (3 F) here right now -25 C (-13 F) with windchill. It's not too cold yet. I don't have to wear longjohns to work yet and I'm laughing.
     
  12. It was only -2F this morning.

    Not as bad as some of you, but we have snow and it's going down to 8 tonight. Wind chill is a killer though, it was 1 when I walked the dog. No telling how low it's going to get.

    Was -6 when I got up at 6 am. Hit 15 for a high. Back down below zero tonight. It's tolerable. We wouldn't live here if it wasn't and to me it wouldn't be Christmas without the cold and snow. To me not much diferrent than when I lived in Nashville and couldn't really spend any meaningful time outdoors in July and August because of the heat and humidity. Same thing in AZ. Take your pick. But I wouldn't move for anything.
     
  15. You live up nort der, hey guy.

    Cripes, I ain't headin' nowhere near nort of Fond Du Lac dis time of year.

    Down here in North Houston we're supposed to wake up in the 20s (Fahrenheit), which is the coldest we've seen all season. It'll also be raining all night (perhaps snowing?) so hopefully I'll have a chance to use that window frost remover on my car in the morning.

    according to my dashboard widget it's 27F, it hasn't gotten much above freezing. Normally I would feel like a little girl complaining, but I have a 20 minute walk to classes between large buildings (read: windtunnel) in a jean jacket and a hat. I'm thinking about walking around with a flask of wild turkey to stay warm between classes. And to make the last week of the semester that much more interesting. :bassist:
