Heh, I have performance tires on my car which do the "clunk-clunk-clunk" thing when is starts to get near freezing. On hot days you can squish the tread with your fingers. Stick like crazy though.

Jay, that's the problem we're having right now ... usually a day or two and then the temps resume back to normal but this has been going on all week and is forecasted to do so for several more days.

Mike ... I'm at a loss for words!

Bundle up Rick, it will come to an end soon enough. For us northerners we won't really get out of the cold for several more months \:\(

We just got another 6-8" on top of the already 20+ we've got over the last few weeks. Right now we have -18F windchills with reg temp about +5F right now. Usually at night it gets down to -10 to -15 below temp with -30 to -40 windchills.

This last snow is very light and fluffy, the wind is making it hard to see across the street. I'm sure I will have to plow out the drifted in drive when I get home..

As others have already said, it's all relative. I wouldn't do well with your summer heat and humidity, nor Mikes' -50!

All of a sudden, NH seems "moderate"! \:\)

It's supposed to hit -27 here in Missouri by Saturday.

Just rechecked and it has changed to -11 instead by Saturday morning as the low.

Unusually cold in Oklahoma as well. We still have snow on the ground from DEC 24, which is highly unusual. THe low friday night is supposed to be -3 degrees F. We usually only get down to the mid teens at the worst.

Heh. Just like all the other midwestern folks, it's been really cold here too the past two weeks. Lows below zero, highs struggling to get into the teens.

Where I live, we do often get 3,4,5,6+ inches of snow during a storm, but it'll usually melt within a week. And just like David, yeah, we've still got snow on the ground from Christmas.

Yesterday, with the impending snow storm, the temps rallied to the mid 20's. I went back to just a windbreaker for a coat. ;\) I could take out the garbage again in just a t-shirt and jeans. \:\)

Next week it's supposed to hit 32 by Wednesday. Might have to put the top down on the convertible. \:\) And no, I'm not really kidding. \:\)

Everyone adapts. You get used to the climate where you live. My northwoods-Wisconsin-living in-laws think anything above 80F is "really hot".

After stretches of unusually cold weather and the temps get back to the freezing mark it really does feel warm enough to put the convertible top down and go for a cruise, till you get splashed by the melting snow ;\)
