    Stay Warm ya'll

    Lots of record cold hitting many parts of North America for this New Years! Glad I'm in New Mexico! Stay safe (and warm) all you folks in these bitter cold regions!

    20 degrees below normal here in SW Ohio this week. Made all the more fun by the blower quitting on the furnace the other night. Didn't get really cold inside but I was blanket wrapped while waiting for the part to come in. 18yo furnace meant not everything needed was in stock. But fixed and back to normal now..

    When I went to the gym this morning in shorts it was 13 degrees F (-11C). It is supposed to get colder on New Years Eve.

    High of 28 today in Tucson.

    Of course, that's 28 Celsius.

    It's supposed to be single digits on New Years Eve. I read that the pickpockets in Times Square were calling in sick.

    Nice to have cold weather here for Christmas and New Years. Better then when we were wearing shorts and tees two years ago. Now, we just need more snow, but Erie hoarded it all.

    They actually just cancelled the New Year's eve celebrations on Parliament Hill - Ottawa was the coldest capital city on the planet yesterday (about as cold as the surface of Mars!)

    Re: Stay Warm ya'll

    9F this am in SW CT but much colder upstate in the Litchfield Hills: -5. Friend's son has a house in Waitsfield, VT. 25 below this am. I think it was colder than Fairbanks, AK. What makes it worse, its windy, making the wind chill below zero. I took a (short) birdwalk this afternoon with my daughter at Greenwich Point and it was obnoxious. At my age, I have a little trouble breathing when its so cold. Only good birds we saw was a female Northern Harrier (formerly Marsh Hawk) and 3 Great Cormorants, a northern species that comes down here most winters.

    7F here this morning, just a wee bit chilly! I love this weather, reminds me SPRING is just around the corner!

    OOPs! Just checked the temp on another thermometer, it's 3 degrees! High today is 19. Kinda rare for it to get that low here, actually it's setting records. Must be global warming.

    Wind chill, -10F, Calling for snow tomorrow.

    We were a balmy 5 F here in Pennsylvania's Lehigh Valley. But we only have about an inch of white on the ground. Luckily our 13 year old grand dog Yorkies headed home to New Mexico yesterday morning. They did not like the cold at all, although it is only 10 currently at their home in Clovis.
