Winter? What's that?</californian>

Actually, it's been a relatively cold winter here: ~(high 65F, low 50F) a lot of the time.

    it's been a relatively cold winter here

    And because of that, a lot of people in California suddenly got the idea that they were having "weather".

    We flew to Los Angeles over the winter holidays and my mother actually told me, who lives in Northern Europe, to "dress warm". She's a native of North Carolina and should really know better.


      How long have you been living in california? (you get used to a climate easily, and what was "cold" yesterday is "really really cold" today).

    I am forced to snicker at such comments. I mean... a low of 50F is the equivalent of 10C. Two days ago, we were at -45C, the equivalent of -23F -49F. Ha! :P

    Update: Fixed conversion result of C to F. Don't know what I did wrong to get my numbers.

      With or without the wind chill?

      As we say in Montreal to all the prairie folk (Well, at least it's a dry cold)
      * Never quite sure what we mean when we say it. Maybe we're just trying to be cool (ha ha).

      Worst I've been in is -38 C. That's cold enough for me.

        Yeah, well we hit 6 degrees kelvin where I'm from so Ha! I win. Nannananana.

        That is all.

      <mathgeek> Actually, -45C is -49F. </mathgeek>

      Here in Montreal we're in the middle of two solid days at -41C, but I remember years where the wind brought us down below -50.



        Yep, global warming really has been taking its toll I would think. Not too long (maybe seven years?) ago, we surely hit much much lower temperatures than we do these last years. Not nearly as much snow here either. There was a time when we had a couple feet of snow, now we're lucky if we have snow for Christmas! And I am only 18 years old. Which demonstrates even further that these weather changes are quite recent :)

      sorry but that's even funnier that you think that is cold. today it was like -5 degrees F and it didnt even feel that cold to me i went outside in a sweatshirt so yeah im pretty sure you have it pretty good where ever you are. chicago is freezing

    I don't think I've even seen snow except on TV...and I suddenly felt cold when I saw it...
