    I know the eastern states are having a nasty winter but here in Alberta we are having a winter that beats all. I live in Edmonton which is in central Alberta. Last weekend we received 34 cm (13 in.) of snow in a matter of 24 hours. We haven't had this much snow since 1989. We are now in a deep freeze, today it is -24 C (11 F) but with wind chill factor it is -35 (-31 F). You do not want to be outside too long. Best to stay in a occupy the sewing room.

    Only can wish for 30 degrees weather. I usually bar-b-q all winter but not on these cold days.

    In Troy, Michigan (where I work) it's currently 26 F and the "Feels like Temp" is 19 F. :| I'm not sure if I could handle your frigid weather!! :shock: I can deal with cold temps much lower than we currently are having, but only for a short period of time! Please, please, please don't send us an Arctic Blast!!!!! :-( We aren't the extreme hardy souls that you are!! :lol:

    I am in Southeast Louisiana (south of New Orleans) and currently it is 46 degrees, but the low lastnight was 27 or so. It's been pretty chilly here for a couple of weeks and we're not used to that hehe

    We woke at 7am to -27C which is about -7F and heavy snow. At the moment 2:25 pm it is -20C/-4F, the snow has stopped but is due to start up again tonight and the temps are rising to -14C/+6F. We have had over 12 inches of snow in the last 48 hours. Don't know what our totals will end up. We are supposed to get snow every day till about Tuesday. Should be interesting. Haven't had a winter like this in a long time.

    I don't think I can really fathom this type of cold! Its in the low forties here today and that is as cold as I care for it to be. 13 inches of snow! You would probably die laughing at how crazy it gets here over a snow flurry that doesn't "stick"!

    We got above freezing today with sunshine and it felt positively balmy! I think it was up to 38 degrees! No wind and still a couple inches of snow on the ground, but it is melting slowly. We are supposed to be above freezing again tomorrw, so a little more melting will help. Slush will most likely freeze tonight, so I must remember to be careful in the morning.
