Re: Is it cold or am I a whiney little bitch?

Man up. This is a typical Canadian winter. Last winter was the exception, as this year is proving.

We won't know that until winter's over and we look back at average temperatures. Yes, this WEEK is typical winter, but last week I was barbecuing out on the deck in my shirt sleeves.

For what it's worth, daytime highs of -13C and overnight lows pushing -20 - and this is with no wind - are anything but typical, at least around here. Our average January daytime high is 0, and it's the only month of winter where the average is at freezing. The coldest we've ever been in recorded history is -25. They don't call us the banana belt for nothing.

So yes, we are freezing our asses off, and you will not hear me call anyone who complains about this abhorrent cold a whiny bitch.

You're being too literal -- I meant "typical" in the sense of being cold and snowy, instead of everyone remarking on how summer-like it is. Still, when I was out at midday yesterday the car thermometer said 22°F (about -6°C) which is hardly super cold. I think it's supposed to be quite a bit colder today (Tuesday).

I think what he meant was the cold snap. Yes, typically around here daily highs would be -2 or so, but this is also normal for winter to have this cold snap. It's supposed to back into the single digits next week.

So far, this year still barely qualifies as a typical winter...2 weekends and grass to look at...not so wintry.
