Actually this is day 4 of sub arctic temps here in WNY and I AM NOT IMPRESSED! This beats our record here in 1904 which was -10.
I do believe this is the result of rising global temps and am now reconsidering the area in which I live. The DRY desert sound SOOOO appealing @ the moment! I grew up here and for the past 37 years we always have had long winters with PLENTY of snow..BUT this really takes the cake for me. Just curious as to how many others in the ATS community have been experiencing the same type of phenomena.. Secondly WHERE should I move to? lol

Here just outside of Utica NY -17 this morning. Guess were back into the winters we used to get around here. Can't say I'm happy about that.

It's negative 2 here in Pittsburgh area...It was negative 20 over the weekend though, this cold just hits you at your bones!! It is so cold outside the snow isn't even melting...No matter what you do to it, the snow just stays where it is...It will all go away once it warms up a bit, but this time of year around our area is always cold/snowy...Nothing new here really...

Forget Climategate: this ‘global warming’ scandal is much bigger

-8 north of Niagara Falls, NY this am. I have had enough. Forecast of -5 for Thurs I see.

I tried the cup of boiling water trick. Toss it in the air, instantly freezes.
Looked just like this, my son did not believe me.

I don't think it is bad that it is so cold there, after all it is better you have the cold than us. We have our own freezing cold weather coming this coming week, it will probably be over twenty below here again. I hate when our furnace won't shut up, I should put a boiler in next time I have to replace the furnace. But oil boilers aren't that efficient.

My thermometer was at -21 this morning here in NE Ohio. That's about 105 degrees below my comfort zone. Keep warm and be safe in this, my friends.

That equates to -27 Celsius.
If the snow has been cleared, that's actually a nice temperature for driving. Much less slippery on the roads.

That said, that's really the only thing good about that temperature.
Hope your house is well insulated, this snow/wind/blizzardy stuff is probably still coming for another month or so

I grew up in Buffalo… went to NYC for a time… returned to care for elderly parents… then moved to Arizona.

I understand where you're coming from, but the desert living here in Phoenix isn't as awesome as it was, it's drastically changing here also.

At first, we loved the 2% humidity and 110+ temperatures during the summer. But the past two summers have been very different, this last one drastically so.

The humidity was high during the first half of summer, in the 30-40% range. Now, that still might seem low for many, but that's high for the desert. So high that we often had heavy evening dew in the morning.

Then came rain, a lot of rain in mid-summer, and we had several days of 70-80% humidity because the water lingered a long time -- the hard ground here doesn't absorb rain water. The the humidity remained in the 40-50% for the remainder of the summer -- with 110+ temps. Oppressive.

But to make matters worse, we had become overwhelmed with "ground mosquitos" and these small brown flies that bite (forget the name). These nasties say out all the time and a huge campaign of spraying did very little… the ground mosquitos are hard to kill, and once appear, typically last 7 years (apparently).


The winter is nice now, but the summers are not what they were.

Southern California & north Texas are the only viable places left, imo. Weather wise.

My uncle stopped over yesterday and said something similar. Only he said it was great because he could do "80 on the freeway!". I told him it was a ridiculously stupid idea no matter how dry the roads look. Even if the snow is off the roads and they are clear, it is still extremely dangerous if you are driving in negative temps and happen to wreck. Then what? Now you are stuck in a car with no heat because you wanted to go 80 on a road you thought was better to drive on because of the cold.

I guess I still drive in the winter as if anything could go wrong. Cold temps equals hard rubber tires and the grip just isn't as strong as it would be in the warmer temps. Never trust a cold tire.

-6 this morning west of Pittsburgh. Glad it's not windy.

We got 40cm of snow in one night.
Thankfully it hasn't been -that- cold here this year. Further north is -30 though.
I'm in Newfoundland. The snow capital of canada. More snow on the horizon, can't deal with too many more 5 foot snow plow piles and snowdrifts. Shoulder can't take it! Last year it was -20 for a few weeks with a badass windchill

I suppose we can draw comfort from NASA telling us that 2015 was the hottest year ever, next January, although satellites will tell us it wasn't. (as with 2014).

You guys were just featured on BBC America's Million Dollar Critic.

St. John's looked like a neat place but there is no way I would go there in the winter.
