Default SUB ZERO Headed to "Lower 48"

We've had 2 weeks of sub zero here. Finally a front moving in to push the cold air out. Last night it was -25 F Now it's 0.
Have been splitting, hauling & burning allot of firewood to supplement house heat. Supposed to warm up to the lower 30s by Tuesday. (Fairbanks has some -60F to send south)
Will be short-sleeve weather for us but probably be snowing .
When this happen the Lower 48 states get a dose of Winter.

We in Alaska love to share. (at least the air will be clean)
SAT link to storm moving in (it loads a little slow): http://www.arh.noaa.gov/satloop.php?...es&sector=3gaf

Get your coats ready (Doc, may need those scraps/firewood soon)

Life isn't right, wrong or fair. Life just is.

Some people love complaining, we've had two weeks of heatwave weather, in the mid to high 30's (Celsius), would you swap? Seriously, I wouldn't!

Thanks for the gift of air conditioning! We've been too comfortable at 15 to 20 F. here in Minnesota.

Your blast of sub-zero this week will remind us to get our reservations for a flight to Mexico!

Dave, I have some scraps ready, but I don't have enough for that kind of weather.
Reminds me of a song, North to Alaska, "When it's spring time in Alaska, it's 40 below."

We expect to see -5F this week. No biggie, I wonder how you would handle the 105F we get from time to time Dave?

We get a range of -27 F with NO windchill added to 109 F(highest I remember) 100% humidity in the summer. Sometimes we get a 60 degree difference in one day!

Chicago weather!

And it is NOT windy here as some people think. The "windy city" refers to the politicians that are full of hot air!

We are in sub-tropical western Washimgton. No sweat here!

Best thing I ever did was move from Chicago! Cold in winter, hot in summer.

I like Chicago. Moved to AZ, FL, NV, CA and came back and will not leave again.

I'm not complaining, just an observation. If I didn't like it I wouldn't be here. (well this is a good time of the year to take a vacation to somewhere warm) "Liking" -25 F may not be the correct term, but it does limit your outside activities. It does however have some advantages, it makes splitting fire wood with a splitting maul easy. It just flies apart it so brittle. Also a very dry air, need to drink lots of liquids.

How is the humidity there when it's in the 90s (F), high humidity would remind me of where I grew up in West Virginia, just sitting under a shade tree, you sweat. Are you in southern Australia & get cold winters?

You are right, the cold we can dress up for, the heat, well you can only take off so many clothes. We are gaining over 3 minutes a day of daylight now, soon it'll be spring & I'll be planting the garden & mowing grass. Nice thing is the summers are in the 70s & a hot day is 80 (F)

Like anywhere, each has pros & cons.
+ 10 (F) today, heat wave. Supposed to get to 30 & snow on Wednesday finally.
Mid west & central lower 48. get your coats, its coming.

Life isn't right, wrong or fair. Life just is.

the cold weather can produce a euphoria that results in loss of recognizable intelligence. if you can put on enough clothes to stay warm, then do it and sit outside for a month. at +5 degrees you would be in a funeral home . God made south Georgia to live in. in fact he lives up the road! I just had to tease you guys that live in the undesirable north frigid country. i respect how you endure living in such a cold place. spoiled by nice weather1

light travels faster than sound, this is why some people seem bright til you hear them speak.
