    Is winter too cold for you?

    Is Winter too cold for you? Here in Kentucky the weather can get
    really cold here. This past year was extremely cold here it got down
    to just 2 degrees and a lot of pipes busted! How I wished I was in
    the tropics. Eight inches of snow on the ground and ice on top made
    it bad to walk anywhere. When the later part of march arrived I breathed
    a sigh of relief as the temperatures climbed up into the 80's a little each
    day. I know some of you from Demark, northen USA, and Canada froze.
    Even though during the summer it got up to 105, I at least was able to
    go somewhere without freezing my face off and my fingers. Let me
    know what you guys deal with during the winter months.

    Thats global warming for you right there, judy

    As funny as it may sound, all of my harshest winters were ... in the summer. It gets really cold here during the summer season.
    During winter however, while it is brisk and chilly - its very very nice and occasionally we are spoiled by a few days of unexpected summer (and by summer here i mean the normal summer, not our summer that I was describing above )

    We are shivering and freezing over at night here in the southwest deserts of Arizona.
    High today was 43 - went down to 28 last night - but dry as a bone.

    Southwestern Poland is not too cold this year. So far the temperature went down to -3°C at night, which is not much. We used to have temperatures like -10°C or -15°C. And we don't even have snow this year. I guess the only one sign it's winter is that that roads are slippery...

    Bah, you wanna talk nasty winters? I could tell you stories...

    Actually, besides the two 40 cm dumps of snow we've had, it's been nice. Not too cold. I hate it when we get -25 C temperatures. But that may be yet to come; we're only in December.

    Judy, where I live winter is never anything more than chilly. Seldom gets to 5 celcius (not sure that is in farenheit), but it's well above freezing.

    For those interested, 4 degrees C = 41 degrees F. It must be different to celebrate Christmas with it being so warm (hot) ... somehow that season has been stereotyped into being cold, snowy and freezing temperatures. I guess it's all relative to where one lives.

    they say we could get some snow.

    Hey methodistgirl Judy Tooley

    On the first day of the new year 2008, I send you greetings from the old country in the northern Europe, Denmark - as a newbie on this site. Temperatures in Denmark above zero, now snow, no winds - more or less a typical danish winters day - cloudy. I hope you´ve had a merry christmas with friends and family and a happy new years evening last night, which go to everyone else on this site as well. Sincerely intet-at-tabe

    Normal temp. for a new year, but the amount of snow, my GOD!!! It's been snowing regularly, sometimes five inches or fifteen inches and we're well covered, thank you! The snow bank where I clear the driveway if now well above six feet in height, and this is the first of January. You know you've got too much snow when the space delineating driveway and street becomes narrower and narrower, and that's what I'm observing right now as more snow is falling on Maine, tonight. Beautiful, mind you, but if you don't belong in this climatic culture of mine, how would you like to begin your day, almost every day (these days) shoveling snow for an hour or so. There's an expression "nordic" folks here will acknowledge: "We're snowed in." I was snowed in yesterday and I'm snowed in tonight.

    Interesting thing about Christmas and cold ... I'm almost certain (though can't proove it) that the "sheperds were NOT tending their flocks by night in the middle of winter" they would have been in stables. I guess the Australia way of Christmas is probably more logical?

    Sounds like the two of us get the exact same weather, ON. Tell me, does it remind you of the winters we used to get here in Quebec when we were kids? This is how I remember winter as a child; tons of snow. Not the wimpy jokes we've had the last decade and more...

    Ct64- makes sense to me...

    Not been too bad here in the uk, cold and slightly breezy. But we have been threatened with snow tomorrow, I shiver just at the thought of it. Apparently the same temperature during the day as in the night, 3 degrees C. That is cold enough for me, we luckily where I am don't get a lot of snow, and it doesn't last.

    Roll on summer though.

    True! The huge snow drifts, the enormous snow banks, the thick cover of powdered snow, so thick that our little Bombardier snowmobile (model 1965) struggled to emerge and glide over the snow surface. One significant difference, though, in that we weren't the ones doing the heaving snow clearing. It took me about two hours today to clear the driveway and a roof. By the way, I cleared that roof about six days ago. When I went back this afternoon it had a good two to three feet of new snow on it. But my grandchild might enjoy the resulting snow banks. One of them is now more than eight-feet high.
