    Greetings from Montreal, Canada.

    This translates to -7.6F (with windchill: -43.6F) on the Fahrenheit scale for our friends to the south.

    A little better than last week where it had dipped to -26C ambient with same windchill value.

    Brutal!

    'Tis -3 in St. Clair Shores at the moment, and we're not even the coldest spot in the area. I may head out tomorrow to see how the shantytowns are doing out on the lake. ;)

    47°C yesterday in Sydney, Australia. That's over 116°F.

    Oh wow, I forgot they even did that. Frankly I think it sounds like a lot of fun!

    Fun for those who like to fish...and those who like to fish in sub-zero temperatures. :D

    Never fails though. Some local redneck will get out there when the weather warms up, and end up adrift in Lake St. Clair, when all the sane fishermen have already packed up for the year. ;) Would be even funnier if he drifted over the international border. :D

    It warmed up today but we had 13 days in a row with temps staying below freezing. It was close to an all time record but not quite.

    It's been warm the last couple of days here in the land of German cowboys. :D

    Oh sure. I ate today, so world hunger must be a myth.

    -3° last night, 25° currently, and rising overnight (due to some snow rolling through). I think we're partly out of the worst of it for the next several days.

    The misery lives on here in Michigan also. I saw snow this morning. Tomorrow it's supposed to go to 68°. Then back into the 40s by Saturday. Still way too many cloudy days--I can't handle many more winters like this.

    Last few days here in South Dakota it was in the 60's' Predicting 8-15 inches of snow for this weekend.
    Have to put motorcycle away and get snow blower back near garage door.
    Sigh....
