    Where I am it's 14 degrees with a windchill that makes it feel like zero.

    The surprising thing is that I checked and in Fort lauderdale it is only 40 degrees.

    14 degrees (Fahrenheit) is about -10 (Celsius), though. So Mem has greater shivering rights today. :rolleyes:

    It's night here, and probably going to mid 30's C (95 F for the Americans and Canadians)...can't say I've had any part of my body cold in months.

    It's 18 degrees F here this morning. The weather showed that in a few days it would be warming up and will get ti the upper 60s F. Makes no sense...

    I Think Canadians use Celsius now. I was talking to a Canadian in Florida and was asking him about the weather. He said that they had changed over many years ago and that he had forgotten the Fahrenheit method.

    The only correlation I know is that F 98 is C 37, because that is normal body temperature. When I was little my parents took my temp in C.

    It's freezing here now, and in a few days we will be warmer than current south Florida Temps.

    I've no idea what the temperature is in my area right now, but I'm not sweating so it's officially "damn cold".

    Stoopid east coast.


    Edit: 20&#176;F apparently, whatever that is in normal measurements. :tongue:

    Let me see- 14 in Jersey and 40 in Florida. Yeah it's hard to figure how it might be warmer several hundred miles to your south:rolleyes:.

    Then put on your mittens and longjohns and don't forget your muffler and earflap hat. But most of all, reMEMber whatever you do, do not, oh I must repeat this for your own sake- DO NOT start crying. Your tears will freeze and you'll be stuck outside the Paramus Park Mall until Spring thaw.

    You think you have it bad? Look around at the poor folks forced to sleep outside in these conditions. Think of the school crossing guard forced to guide children at the windy intersections today.

    Besides, there are less than three months to go until Springtime.

    (and for the record, we started out at a sultry 13 degrees-fahrenheit this morning, with winds making it feel below zero- so there!)
