Yeah snow.. depends on the system it might just flurry or we could see over a foot of snow. Usually get five or six inches with a good system...

Beaches now that's something hard for me to imagine. Really special occasion for me to get there... Years and years...
Snowflakes gently floating from the sky just dusting the ground. Then it picks up bigger fatter flakes cascading from space at a faster rate. From a dusting to a trace. Then the deluge comes. Oh what joy. Watching everything slow to a crawl, then a stop. Step outside and even with things moving it is quiet. It is a giant muffler the earth is wearing. Causing everything to be muted.To be calm.

I wish I could send a photo to paint a picture of where I am right now but I’ll paint a word picture instead.

The bay waters are gently lapping on the shell-filled beach. My daughter is building epic sandcastles with her many buckets. There is the sound of happy children everywhere. A flock of yachts are just leaving the shore, my eldest child among them somewhere. My middle child is wet and needs a bit of help putting his yacht away. The odd seagull lands then flies away. The sun intermittently finds its way through the clouds but the air is warm and sweet and full of life. This is my Sunday. This is every Sunday for me in summer. Sunday’s are good for the soul.

Sounds like a truly relaxing Sunday. Wonderful picture that you painted...

The cold is back. There was a big storm passing, lots of rain, strong wind knocked down a couple of trees, I didn't watch the news don't know if people are hurt or anything.

I'm wearing a polar sweater, a wool sweater, a wool jacket, scarf and the gloves and another jacket are standing by for when I go outside. If history has thought me anything, the sun will be hot after a while and I'll be melting.

Four inches of snow yesterday. Beautiful sight to behold.

Very cold! Snowed last night. A few inches but enough for my stepson to have a two hour delay for school

After a hot 34 degree day and a balmy 20 degree night the cool change has come and its a lovely 21 degrees, sitting by the sea.

Hal, wow, that is sooo cold. Forgive my ignorance but how does one actually live in an environment like that? How do you actually go outside? (I mean, I complain and feel like I can’t handle it when the mercury hits less than 16 degrees Celsius).

I was wondering the same sort of thing when I saw in the news that some place in North Dakota was getting -40 (the same in F and C). How do people live there? I guess the answer is you just get used to it.

It feels yucky here......humidity is like 95%....no rain but really foggy, and I mean really foggy. Feels chilly and warm at the same time.

Currently: 49F/9C

We had a weird fog last week here, lasted all day, creepy as fuck for me and my neighbours who live on top of the hill, reminded me of foggy nights in my family's country village (imagine old european, granite village, where you can't see 3 meters in front of you, kids running home to their parents and a lot of talks about ghosts).

Now, still 15ºC and not a single breeze. Just went outside for a smoke and was hot with my wool sweater and big jacket.

We haven't had our usual rain this year either. Not good.

It usually starts right after Halloween, lasts until spring. Hopefully it will start after the first of the year, otherwise we're going to go back to the droughty conditions again. Last year we had so much rain our area had gone back to normal status tg.

42 degrees Celsius today (107.6 Fahrenheit). Hit the beach in the morning but a bit too hot to go out in the sun this afternoon.

-17 fahrenheit here = -22 celsius. The fact is, if it's extra hot somewhere in the world, somewhere else in the world has to make up for it!

What extreme temperatures you guys are telling us about :shock:

Here is a mild 11ºC (51.8ºF), has been raining and the temps are suppose to lower this weekend. Never to freezing though, I only remember it snowing in Lisbon once and it was for like 5 minutes. I feel that I'm repeating myself, so appologies.

It's been very unusually cold for a couple of weeks now. But the east coast had it the worst two days ago with a "bomb cyclone." A very big cold front hit a hurricane-like low and the storm followed the coast up to the Canadian Maritimes, dumping up to 0.5 m of snow. It even snowed in Florida! :cry:

12" of snow, everything is shut down for days still. Virginia Beach area is so not used to this. Temps in the single digits and the wind chill....I don't even know what it is but it's beyond cold. Stay warm my East Coast friends!!
