    I just have to rant and rave about this for a second [​IMG]..

    I'm a warm weather person. I was in my prime last summer in 90 degree heat, lounging around the beach house, and riding my bike around exploring for hours. For the past two weeks, we hear in the northeast have had to put up with 15 degree days, with wind chills of 0 degrees during the nights. And it dosn't look like it's going to stop anytime soon.

    Anyone who watches advance weathercasts know when we can expect to get up to at least 40 degrees? It's not bike riding weather, but at least I can start to crack open the window a little and get some fresh air in again [​IMG]..

    I'm just waiting for someone to invent those Star Trek weather Modification nets that have been discussed on the show. I don't care about controlling hurricanes, or rain storms. I just want ot controll the temperature [​IMG]. 60 degrees in the winter, and 85 all summer and I'm a happy person [​IMG]...

    Anyone else sick of this cold weather yet?

    I've no doubt that the Super Bowl is going to make a LOT of people wish they lived in San Diego (which has almost identical weather to Long Beach, BTW). [​IMG]

    You know it's cold when you start calling 32 degrees F the melting point. I don't think we've had more than a total of 10 days above 32 since Thanksgiving. First winter in New England, and it's a far cry from NYC.

    The snow was fun for like 2 seconds - then it got old fast. It's been white everywhere for a month now, at my job we still have mounds of snow as tall as me.

    How civilization thrived in this kind of weather is beyond this african guy. I can't wait to get the fuck outta here some day.

    Holadem - snow sucks.

    Re: Canadian Weather,

    Yep, most definetly. Still dosn't mean I can't bitch about it, however [​IMG]. I was also watching something on the weather channel a few days ago about a heat failure in Russia. These poor people are wearing parkas indoors even when the heat is on, because their temperatures are 20 degrees below yours [​IMG]..

    If only we could take apart the Jersey Shore, park it along Floriday, we'd be good to go [​IMG].

    The weather up here in the Southern Ontario area (Toronto, Kenata, Ottawa, etc.) has been... well... FRIKKEN FRIGID!!!

    Let`s put it this way... you know it`s beyond cold when you step outside and your nosehairs freeze on contact with the air outside.

    That move to Florida that I`ve been pondering for the past little while is sounding more and more appealing. I think I`ve had enough of snow, ice, sleet, and sub-sub-sub zero temperatures.

    Screw Skiing, Skating, Ice Fishing and Snowball fights. [​IMG] Bring on the BBQ, rollerblades, beaches, and bikinis baby! [​IMG]

    Hey I had to turn on the heat this past weekend because it went down to 40 degrees in Florida.

    This is a MAJOR cold snap for us.[​IMG]

    I run a small window cleaning business here in Michigan. On Monday it was so cold my solution, that is rated at -30F was freezing up on some windows. I couldn't even do some of my accounts. [​IMG]

    I always have to listen to my parents gloat about how warm it is down in Florida. Makes me so mad

    Since you're from the NY area I hope this will help cheer you up:
    I passed Yankee Stadium on Saturday and the sign on the ballpark said: 25 Days to Pitchers and Catchers
    I always feel a bit warmer when I see pictures from spring training on the evening news. [​IMG]
    BTW it was -7F here in PoTown on Saturday morning, but it was a dry cold [​IMG]

    My mother moved from Montreal, Quebec to SaltSpring Island, B.C. last summer. Now she nags me about the balmy days, the blooming flowers... [​IMG]

    I don't mind the cold. It's simply part of living in a cold climate. Besides, I have a Kanuk coat rated to -35 degrees celcius (about -30 degrees farenheit) and it has served me very well these last few days. Just make sure you also wear a furry hat and thick gloves otherwise the cold will strip your exposed skin right off!
