    It's -2F (with windchill) where I'm from and we're quite warm relative to the rest of Canada.

    DONT let them salt the roads down there.

    It's about the last chance of salt free classic cars!

    :rofl: :lmao:

    Current temperature in the Atlanta metro area is 31 degrees fahrenheit. We were expecting a high of only 25F, so I guess that's a good thing. :cool: Tonight a low of 13F is expected. :eek:

    Freezing winters in Florida are not that unusual. I remember it snowed in Vero Beach the day Jimmy Carter was inaugurated.

    The groves use to regularly burn the smudge pots to keep the citrus blossoms from freezing. They spray water on the fruit at night because water freezes at 32 degrees and stays there. The ice insulates the fruit from temps dropping further than that and actually freezing the fruit.

    And 10c / 50F degrees in Vancouver in January is very normal. In fact more normal than sub-zero temps. The coast is warmed by the Japanese ocean current and the winters are quite mild. 100 miles inland is another story.

    It's too cold for a stole. If I do go to Walmart I'm wearing a full length fur. It's too cold for the fur car coat; and the mink vest looks silly under a mink coat.

    Tell me about it. The boiler in the building died last night and I've been sitting around all day in Willtom's favorite fur coat of mine. Please tell me the food from New Year's eve was in the freezer, otherwise order a pizza!

    I ordered in pizza and an antipasto salad. It was tasty & filling but nothing like NYC pizza. The heat is set to 82, damn cathedral ceilings suck all the heat up.

    This thread should be more appropriately named "It's warmer in BC than in Florida" because it's FUCKING FREEZING in the rest of Canada.

    I tried to explain that to these Americans but they wouldn't (couldn't) listen. They got all hot and bothered and now NJ thinks it's 82 degrees and she's covering her nekkidness in mink, eating pizza and contemplating global climate change. Or something.

    The question is if you have the matching mink hat?

    The full length furs were out in full force today at church.
