It's minus what! outside?

It's -15'celcius outside right now, which is around -11'farenhiet I think.....and anyways, it's too cold for me. I forgot to plug in the block heater last night, so I will have to wait to warm the van up for a bit before I can head off to work.
It started snowing Friday and snowed pretty much all weekend, to top it off I walked out of work Friday afternoon to find my van had a flat tire. Nothing quite says "fun" like changing a tire in a snowstorm.

The forecast is calling for the mercury to dip down to -25'celcius towards the end of the week. Brrrrr!!!!!!!!!

Its about that here at the moment also. Doesn't look like it is going to get any better either.

Alan is in California today and tomorrow. I just checked the temperatures in Petaluma, and they're in the 50s all week. Keep your fingers crossed for us that Alan gets the job. I want to move somewhere WARMER!!!! I HATE winter!

I hate the cold. I don't know how you guys do it.

I'd never survive even one winter in Canada, or even Nevada.

My hat's off to you Gentlemen, and Ladies of the Frozen North country.

we had -18 here on monday....my POS(500$) cavalier wouldn't start,but the chebby truck did with a bit of coaxing.

i have yet to put on anything heavier than a sweatjacket and or a sweatshirt though.

i was used to the colder weather from illinois.

this stuff just doesn't faze me.

once again mother nature has locked me into the "cul-de-sac" and i don't see escaping anytime soon.

calling for a high of 8 degrees on sunday.....

-14C here right now as well, plus we have over a foot of snow, it was around -25C on the weekend but we're not finding it too bad, mainly because it hasn't been windy here. In Alberta it seemed like it was always windy, so you take that -25C and add wind = brrrrrrr.

Julie, hurry up and move so we all have a place to store our bikes for the winter. Make sure you buy a house with a big garage. ;-)
