We are in a rainy stretch with lows in the 30s. It's normal rain, not the overturned bucket we had last week, so that's nice.

The forecast promised a one-day break but they keep moving it around so it's impossible to plan anything.

All those things I put off for a rainy day (or week?) ... meh....I think I'll just curl up with another good book. :D

After two weeks of rain, Exceptional Drought is officially over in most of California. Now we are merely in Severe Drought.

The Windows weather widget continues to amuse me. Bad moon on the rise?

Minus twenty-five tonight. And tomorrow, a high of a whopping minus eighteen.

Even for Canada, that's cold.

It's cold here, too. It's 10F here right now. That's -12.2C.

-18C or below (usually around -30C) is what we keep our frozen plasma and cryo at. That's crazy to think you're around the same temps as that!

Yeah, after a December where only one day had a high temperature below freezing, January promptly reverted to form, dumping a few inches of snow on us on New Year's day and staying average to below-average cold ever since.

I've optimistically set my thermostat for 21, but so far it hasn't managed to get above 18.

I'm thinking I might spend my lunch period in bed covered with a blanket and surrounded by warm dogs.

Environment Canada has issued an "Extreme Cold Warning". We're expecting a low of minus 26 tonight. Tomorrow we go all the way up to minus 18. Woo. Hoo.

That is crazy cold! :(

We're not super cold here, but there's a possibility of snow on Sunday.

Clearly, that is the end of the world.

I still can't believe that, after four years in Chicago, my son voluntarily chose to live in a place with freezing weather once again. Sure, he said that it's where the jobs are and where his friends live. But at what cost!

I used to go swimming in an indoor pool in Fairbanks, and listen to my hair clink like a chandelier on the walk home.

I can remember my long braids freezing while I walked down to the end of my street and waited for the school bus. I would carefully touch the frozen ends and worry that I would accidentally snap them right off.

My mom instilled in me a terror of going out in a freezing weather with my hair wet. :D

On the other hand, my grandfather would go dipping in a frozen river when he was in his 60s-70s.

Oh, yes, my mom, too. I can't remember how I managed to get outside with wet hair.

For the first time ever, the City of Ottawa has cancelled rubbish pick-up because of the snow. :Q
