How are you dealing with the weather?

    It’s been a wacky weather day here. At least the snow’s not sticking around.

    We have a wind warning for the city tomorrow, with the temperature dropping to 0°C with a windchill of -8°C. Another beautiful March day in Toronto.

    6 inches is nothing compared to what we usually get. Last big storm (which was all of a week ago) we got 15 inches, 15 INCHES!!!! Thats entirely too much snow for 1 day.

    6 inches? People at work were complaining about the snowflakes we had here this morning, and none of them stuck around. I’ll have to tell them they’re a bunch of whiners.

    Its not too cold out. Been raining every few days though. And, like, oh my gawd, I can totally see the ground!

    Avatar of Shawn Laing

    Too bad it’s raining today and tomorrow, with a chance of snow on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Winter’s (or the Freezemeister (a tip of the hat to deathspiral)) trying to retain it’s cold grasp on the city.

    Does the Freezemeister live in your neighborhood?

    Avatar of Shawn Laing

    Then it was -2 °C (with a wind chill of -8) at 2 PM. It was crazy windy at 3PM, which made it feel like -48 (my unscientific guess), and now we’re at -5 °C. Awesome.

    And it was unusally warm today here as well. This Northeast weather is all over the place.

    We had a temperature of anywhere from 8 to 11 degrees (roughly 46 to 52 °F), we’re under a rainfall and wind warning and we might get snow tomorrow. There’s flooding in some areas, just for some extra fun. We broke the temperature record for this day and we might break the rainfall record too. Woo hoo!

    It would be nice if we could tie them up in the town centre, and have some hot pokers to prode them with while buring them very slowly with a flame thrower.  And at the same time have somebody cut of their nutts, or boobies with a pair of nail clippers!  That would teach the bastards!

    Avatar of Shawn Laing

    If only they could get the person/people to rebuild what they destroyed, then have them burnt to death, I think that would be justice.

     On the Herald Sun website it said they "MAY" have the grounds for a murder case. MAY! I think if we had the death sentence, then these people would be hot canditates… Australian law is so weak.

    Avatar of Shawn Laing

    If any of those fires that have destroyed towns and killed people were deliberately set, what kind of punishment is enough? What can you do to somebody who commits a crime like that? It’s been on my mind a lot for the last few days.

    Seen the death toll in the Victoria fires? Nearly 200 now? Maybe more, I haven’t heard. Fires travelling so fast that they outrun cars. I dunno, probably worse than the heatwave, even though they had been caused by this same heatwave.

    i swear one day it’s 50, the next day it’s snowing!  It’s enough to drive anyone insane!

    We’ve gone from around -20C last Wednesday to +8 on Saturday and we might hit +12 on Wednesday. Ah, winter in Canada.

    Has been on the ground here since december. That’s how cold its been in my part of upstate New York. If a day in the 40’s comes along I might wear shorts because it might feel that warm

Slush filled streets and sidewalks, hiding random patches of ice. Fluxuating winds between cold and freezing, and the occasional snow storm. At one point, the nights went down to -30 C, and would be somewhere in the -20’s during the day.

I am Canadian too. We’ve adapted well to the cold.

Avatar of Karen Piippo

OK. In Melbourne we have had a heat wave… 3 days with 43C+ in a row…. that’s 109F+. It has cooled off a bit, but we have been dealing with failing a/c, train tracks bucking, power outages, and heat stroke during the Australian Open Tennis.

The temp is now down below 40C but won’t be down below 30C before this coming Friday.

I am Canadian….I AM MELTING!!!!

Tell me cold stories to help me visualize….
