Now we got real Russian winter in Saint-Petersburg today.
It is -14o C (5-6o F) here. Br-r. :cry:

And what about you? Do you feel cold?

Atlanta has been bouncing around between 30 and 65 degrees all winter. Not sure if it can called a winter...

It's okay now, but a week or so ago it was down around -5 to -8C.

2007 was bad: -14 to -15 for over a week...

1993-94 winter was so cold for so long, that the lake in Stanley Park froze solid enough that we were playing hockey there! (This is remarkably cold for Vancouver, for the record).

What! No block heater? I thought that everyone in Edmonchuck had "electric cars"... :dance:

It has been very mild here in T.O. A little snow that gets washed away the next day with rain. Only dips a little below freezing...

Wet snow right now... Rain this afternoon...

Here in North Dakota, it has been real mind, lots of grass showing, and pretty nice, considering how bad last winter was.
