Default how cold is it in your neck of the woods?

Just a ramble while I have my first cup of morning joe got up to take the dog out about an hour ago. 3 in the morning, she usually gets me up at 230 so i guess i got to sleep in. Yay me. till i stepped outside.
-10f lol. I had a flashback when I jumped off a pier when i was a kid and did a faceplant in the water. It was just like that my face felt numb right after the insta pain of cold air. I have a siberian husky, shes loving this weather, me on the other hand while I dont mind the cold to much, i dont play in it mind you but I dont mind it, its why I moved to maine. but this is rediculously cold. turned on a k1 heater in the basement. I know it gets colder elsewhere, so how cold does it get where you are?

Its 38F now. This is the coldest time of year. I think -10F was our record low ever. Tonight's low of 28F is typical. Just cold enough to freeze that tank left out for leak testing. Moved here from Chicago, I usually don't mind the cold until my nose hair freeze. I don't miss shoveling snow or scraping the ice off the car every morning. Heat pump in the basement does the job, but dries the air. Need to go top off tanks. My old cat hates the cold, she'll be curled up on a blanket or on a lap all day.

Within the last couple of weeks. The temperature here has been -10 with a wind chill of -20. We got our first snow just after christmas, it has stayed. It is supposed to go up to 0 degress next week. Hopefully some of this snow will melt. Winter just started here, so we can get -30 here. Brrrr

ZebraDanio12: you will have to come north if you want snow and cold.

Here in Washington State, it is about in the 40s or a bit lower. I like the sunshine best.
