What's the temperature where you are?

I'm in Orchard Park, NY and it has been a cold and snowy winter so far. Today it looks like a high of 9 degrees. The World Junior Hockey tournament is hosting an outdoor game today and I couldn't imagine sitting outside watching a hockey game.

I am in Arizona. Do you really want me to provide you with this data?
I will give you a hint: Yesterday, i did yard work in shorts and a t-shirt and my tee time is 11:00 AM today.
With that being said, my first 23 years were spent in Wisconsin, so I have earned the right to be here!

Currently -1 in the Twin Cities.

Starting tonight we are about to enter a 72 hour stretch where it will be below zero with lows in the -10 to -15 range.

It's not until January 6th that we are supposed to get above 15 again.

And no, we wouldn't consider a move. All of our friends and family are here. Cozumel for 9 days in February is what we'll look forward to.

For those of you that cannot imagine this temperature, here is how to (somewhat) duplicate it.

Go to a local restaurant with a walk-in freezer. The walk-in freezers are typically -10 degrees or so. We are colder than that. Then, bring a fan into the freezer with you.

I'm in south Orange County, CA. It's 51 degrees right now at 6:30 a.m. PST. Forecast high today is 79 degrees. How will I endure next week, though, with highs predicted to be only in the 60s?

Yes, we moved here for the weather.

California, lows in the mid/high 40’s and highs in the mid 60’s, it’s nice to be able to wear shorts in the middle of winter

It's 48 right now and the sun is just rising. I'll be hitting the hills on my mountain bike after I finish this half cup of coffee. Be in short sleeves by the time I roll back home. S'posed to be 84 today.

Most of the week in the low 50s then a dip down to freezing and some snow this morning but now it is back in the mid 30s and the snow is melting, but still very pretty on the hills behind us.

There is nothing like going down to the beach and seeing the ice sheet extending towards the horizon. (Always puts me in mind of a science fiction story I read as a child: A Pail of Air, by Fritz Leiber.)

That said, it's not a place you linger at. The living room is warm, the Jtul stove is lit, it's 12F outside, and the word for the day is "hunker."

Here on Long Island (just east of NYC), it is 14F outside. We will pierce 20F by a few degrees today, unlike yesterday. I am sooooo glad I don't have trudge to the train station any more and wait on the windy, elevated platform in the cold.

74 degrees today at the beach. But we have horrible traffic here, so that pretty much evens things out for some of you. If you live in a big city that's cold, well I can't help you there.

Hey, you may have to come out to the beach today to cool down. That's pretty hot!
