    So I was just cooking away like a little baked potato under all my blankets, until about 4 when I had to pee. OMG, instant shivers. Almost wrenched my neck getting back under the covers. But I was pleased to be generating so much heat.

    Its 1 degree right now with a windchill of -9. Water pipes just about froze up last night, only a trickle of water coming through them now.

    Twas a balmy -21 C with a windchill of -40 C (or -5.8 F with windchill of -40 F) overnight here.
    Planes were grounded at Pearson International Airport in Toronto by 6 am. Virtually all incoming flights today are cancelled.
    Bone crushing cold but I'm pretty toasted indoors.

    Actually not toasted (a good idea though) but toasty - honest. ;)

    That's it, I'm on my way down under!

    My niece who lives in Winnipeg, Manitoba (aka Winterpeg) just sent me this message, "Pfft, -37. You guys are cute with your mildly chilly weather."

    Last month they recorded the coldest temperature in 80 years - -37.9 C That's not windchill, that's the actual temperature. With the windchill, temps were up to -53 C, colder than Mars!

    Frigid Winnipeg temperatures reach as cold as the planet Mars

    Wow. That is just insane! I can't even imagine what that feels like. I was in Instanbul a couple of years ago and it snowed and was -2C. I felt like I was trekking in Antarctica. I realise now I am a *****.

    There are some upsides! When I was a kid I loved our winter activities. You gotta know how to dress for it and be a bit of a dare devil. :shock:

    I expected a story about increased libido or something... o_O

    As far as temperatures go, it reached a toasty 111F before noon in AZ. But y'know, it's a dry heat.

    Today was the first hot day of the year in LA. It's 90 by the coast and 100 plus inland. We get heatwaves here in Sept. and early October.
