It was -9 this morning when I took the dogs out. We've also got 8" of snow on the ground (that's the saving grace).

-9 is a bit too much, however, the sun is shining and it a beautiful day.

My emotions are so conflicted.

Not quite as cold, but last I looked it was 7F outside. A touch brisk... though at least it's pretty and sunny.

When we lived in southern CA, women would have their fur coats out in weather like that.

I'm not sure I've ever even experienced -9F.

I'm pretty sure that is close to the heat death of the universe.

My personal thermometer:

Down to 40˚F = OK. Nice to run outside.
20˚-40˚: Wear a coat. Consider wearing gloves when running.
0˚-20˚: Wear a coat, hat, and scarf. No running outside.
Below 0˚: Really cold. Avoid going outside if possible.

So -9˚ is really, really cold. I don't blame you for being unhappy about it.

I remember walking to the post office with my dad at -75˚ (without windchill, for those in the know). This is part of the reason I now live in Arizona.

Our numbers look pretty brisk this week. Not much snow, though. Just a light coating.

It's been fairly cool for us here. The high didn't reach 70 degrees Fahrenheit!


The coldest I've been outside in was 2 degrees above zero Fahrenheit.

The coldest I felt was about 18 degrees when visiting Niagara Falls. My feet felt like blocks of ice.

When I lived in Wyoming, it got down to -40F. At that temperature, it takes a few minutes of driving to warm your tires up. Until then, they feel like they're square.

When I was a kid, I went to school in -24, Iowa.

Brisk.

-9 is a bit chilling

Of course, that's Celsius.

-9 again this morning when I took the dogs out. They're so cold they run out, do their business, and run back into the house.

But it is a dry cold. cool

Went out to get the paper this morning, and had that 'my nose hairs have frozen' feeling. Remembered living in Mongolia, and decided "yeah, this isn't that bad..."

-32 Celsius this morning. My car started, but it wasn't happy about it. I'm too lazy to Google the conversion at the moment.

We've gotten a ton of snow over the holidays too. I could do without it all.

That being said, I also complain about the heat in the summer. So....


Edit: Apparently it's -25.6
