    I love street parking in the winter (compare to summer anyway), it's like having my own reserved parking spots.

    They don't make them like that anymore. My dad's '81 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme was a reliable luxury tank. One time, a giant tree limb fell on the hood. Instead of the car or at least the engine being totalled; my dad just took a hammer and banged the hood back straight. That was the only damage.... a few shallow dents in the hood. Car ran just fine afterwards.

    Yup, sure don't make them like that anymore.... They don't even make Oldsmobile anymore. (That's what happens when the parent company decides to try to attract younger buyers, by making cars that the brand's traditional core-customers have no interest in. Way to go GM).

    On topic, as the cars got older (despite their durability) you had to warm them up for at least 10 minutes on cold days. Otherwise, they'd stall out just a few blocks later.

    In Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. About 50 miles south west of Toronto.
    Around the time of the OP it was -22°C (-8°F) wind chill.
    It dropped to -29°C (-20°F) in the evening.

    I went out Sunday morning for breakfast and to go to the corner store (I was out of bread and milk). Nobody had shoveled their sidewalk. No fun trudging through the snow.

    The deep freeze down the middle of North America is bad this season. When I see pictures of snowstorms in Texas and Louisiana in the news.....

    Been in the -5F to 20F range for the last few days here. Not bad. Had a good ~18" snow a couple weeks ago. 4WD4TW

    Alright, which one of you is playing with the Governments secret weather machine? Posted this last Sunday:

    High: 54° - Low F 27° F
    Chance of T-storms
    90% chance of precipitation

    Then of course it will be cold enough over night and the following days to freeze all that rain into solid ice. Should be fun .

    Brrr...
    Although I complain about being cold here in So. Cal... I went out for my usual 25 mile ride to the beach the other day and it was coolish at about 51F. For a So. Cal kid, the lowest I've experienced is 16F.

    Thanks for the bump I started this thread because it's interesting to see the different kinds of cold we all deal with, and I hope people continue to add to it as we go through winter.

    The cold from Alaska is getting closer, we will likely see -15F nights with wind chills around -25F later this week here in Milwaukee.


    PS: does that sign say -62F ??? That's insane!
    How do you keep cars running and pipes from freezing and the like? That makes -15 seem warm!

    Its not super cold right now, just looked and it is 3 F. But the wind is making it feel much colder.

    Funny though how it felt colder when it was warmer this weekend after sitting in an unheated hockey rink each day for about 5 hours.

    I hate to throw a warm blanket on this thread but I'm suffering this afternoon (4pm Monday) with 80 degree weather, blue sky, and a warm breeze. I don't remember a January like this in my lifetime. Mustard is already sprouting and my peach tree is forcing buds. Robins flocked into town a week or so ago and the ants are out in full force staking out new colony sites. Anyone else experiencing extremely unusual weather?

    I recently moved from California's "60s and sunny" weather to Alaska. I was impressed by our recent spate of -20 degree temperatures, and was all set to brag until I saw AlaskaWolf's "The Fred Meyers signs says sixty two below" picture. I think I'll just keep quiet now.

    It just goes to show that even when you're in Alaska, someone - somewhere - can outdo you.

    Negative 62. Wow.

    I got so cold today...wait no I didnt. I was outside working on my motorcycle and I got HOT! AZ is crazy...I need to go somewhere cooler. Firefox is saying its 68 out right now, and Tue & Wed are supposed to be 70! Anyone wanna come down to Phx? Better bring a windbreaker, you might get chilly at night.

    Fairbanks has got to be one of the coldest places in the US. I saw it was like -30 to -40 for weeks. Nasty cold!

    Best wishes to all you folks way up there. Hope Mayor Strle has recovered from her surgery in the fall.

    You might make it all the way up to freezing this week. maybe...

    Not only did the -62F make me feel sorry for you, but I was suprised by how much the gas costs there. I thought with the big pipeline in your state you guys would get a break. Good luck with the winter up there. It was a balmy 21F here this evening.

    Yeah, but you're "down under" so it's summer for you.
