I wish America would just switch to celsius like the rest of the world.

Dang OJ!

My folks are in Wisconsin/Iowa and battle those types of temperatures. My dad took a taxi to work yesterday because his car doors were frozen shut.

I've never experienced anything that cold before. I've seen snow once in the last 20 years. That was two years ago. Temp was maybe 25F and I walked around in flipflops and shorts while throwing snowballs.

This winter blast is quite cold. We havent seen anything like it for a few years. The part that is scary is that prior to this past week, I could have easily been running outside without a coat a week ago. This week im battling frost bite warnings of 10 seconds for open skin. Next week, Ill probably be able to get away with a light summer jacket outside.

Such drastic changes in temperature! According to general weather predictions we'll see a 20C temp change within 5 days.

10°F and sunny here. I was going to go skiing, but it's too cold and I'm too lazy.

Last week we set a state record for low in Phoenix, I think it was in the 20'sF, and yesterday we set a record for a new high for the day, I believe it was 82F.

Quebec gets just as bad as Winnipeg sometimes. I was in Winnipeg for meetings a few years ago when it hit -60C with windchill. People were talking about how car door handles were breaking off while trying to open their doors.

The only state of emergency Ive seen was Ottawa and Montreal freezing over. LIterally hell froze over. The city was covered in Ice for weeks.
Cars do not 'see' wind chill. Wind or not, the air temperature is the same...wind chill only comes into play with moist or wet surfaces where evaporative cooling takes place. (Edit: To clarify, the wind can and does increase the rate of heat loss by disrupting the air surface layer that acts as an insulating layer however, the surface temperature cannot drop below the ambient temperature without evaporative cooling).

I believe the record for Maine is -50F (Maine is not that far from Montreal or Quebec, I can be in either place within 5 hours and I'm on the coast right now so half of that time is just to get out of Maine.

FWIW, it was only -4F at my house this morning.

And I remember the ice storm in '98. It hit us too, not as bad as it hit up there though. We got power back after 9 days (I lost all my african cichlids, the tank got down to 38F)

One of the ski areas in NH closed down until tomorrow...too cold, they felt it put their employees at too much risk.

They dont shut down due to temperature. It gets cold every year, they are prepared for it. Half of the south shuts down over a dusting of snow (yes, I understand, you dont have the equipment to deal with it and the drivers have no clue how to drive in it either).

Right but it isnt 12 degrees INSIDE your house. Your thermostat is still keeping the temperature inside at 68 or whatever you have it set at...so if you're inside, it is not relevant what the temperature outside is.

In winnipeg the car doors were frozen shut from extreme weather temp change. the night prior was moderate which had freezing rain. THe very next day everything froze under massive temp drop. Thats what caused the frozen doors. Same with the storm of 86 and 98. Both had rain that froze over quickly

It's set at 66, the perfect weather for me is 45-55 degree's sunny and windy. That is why I love October

Hit near -40C last night, next Wednesday there's a high of +1.

Sometimes it amazes me how quickly weather can change in Canada.

Have to ask, though. With this cold weather, are you guys going to call in the military? You folks don't seem to handle the weather too well
