We're having a heat wave!

Thread Starter 
No, really!

The high today was over 70 degrees, which breaks the high temperature record. You just don't see the 70s in Colorado in January! This is such a welcome break from winter. I don't even need a coat today!

Oh YEAH...Same here, Okee
I am SOOOOOOOOOO sick of winter weather and that snowstorm this weekend will stop my DD and her hubby and my other DD from travelling here to celebrate my baby granddaughter's first birthday I live in Mid-Ohio...
I would NOT want them to battle a snowstorm/whiteouts etc. to get here for something like that, but I SO want to get together with them!! My little baby granddaughter, Emma Anne was born 3 months early and only weighed TWO POUNDS at birth!! Not only is she growing SO well now (she looks like she is about 6 months old--but is doing everything like a one year old!! )
BUT she is really, really thriving now too!!! YAY!!!
(I'm going to try and link a picture of her, just to cheer me up!

Today was pretty warm hewre: 55 degrees. The low has been 19 or so, and the high Monday was 40! I have bus duty outside from 7:30-8:00, and I about freeze my little buns off.

he-he 78 degrees here in sunny Arizona! Love the weather here! Winter only lasts about 2 months. It is almost spring already. This winter I did not turn the heat on in my house even once all winter, just to see if I could do it, and to save money. I was chilly a few evenings, but a person can live here without any heat at all, all winter.

Does your a/c bill make up for it?

70 degrees? Good God, I'm so jealous I can't even stand myself!

We're expecting that snowstorm here as well.

Sure, if I can get out of my parking lot! I live in the secondary snowbelt, so if there's a lake effect part of the storm I'm going to be in trouble.

OK - enough already! It was -24 C when I went out to start my car this morning with the wind chill making it more like -35 C. Fortunately, it has climbed to -12 since this morning . Have a great weekend folks - I'm staying in and keeping warm!

That's crazy - last week they were showing people in Colorado jumping out of their cars, because they couldn't stop, and crashing into other cars. It must make a nice change!
We've had fairly mild weather the past few weeks (30s and 40s), but are expecting snow tonight and tomorrow. Anybody from North America or Russia would laugh at what is considered "a lot of snow" here, though. My husband and I got "snowed in" in the Black Forest a couple of years ago - I think there was about a foot of snow.

As I sit here, it is a sunny balmy day at 17 degrees F. Please, send more snow, my bobcats love it. Actually so do I. I am in the primary snowbelt. Dead center in the middle of geauga County. Living on the east side, we all know those 2 words very very well. Lake Effect!!!

Its getting nigh on zero now - have just come back from Hull after doing the inlaws and outlaws bit and the temperature went from 8 degrees to 1 in 60 miles!!!

Temps in LA have cooled down a bit today. I think it's only in the mid 70's or so. It's been in the 80's the last few days. It's supposed to warm up again this weekend.

I'm right next-door in SE MN, so we have the same weather. In fact, the snow is coming down quite heavily as I type!!!! I'd rather have milder weather, I can't even remember when the last nice day was...

MRSD---nope, my a/c bill doesn't make up for it because I do not have air conditioning! I don't like a/c at all; it does something funny to the air and I do not like how it feels. I would never install it in a house, and do not use it in my truck either, except when I am crossing Death Valley in the middle of the day with Beau in the truck. ! I have an evaporative cooler (AKA "swamp cooler") in the house but personally I would never turn it on all summer for myself. The only reason I ever turn it on is that Beau gets too warm sometimes, and I cannot allow him to be uncomfortable if there is something I can do to make him comfortable. So in the hottest part of the summer, I do turn on the cooler for a few hours during the middle of the day. It doesn't cost very much at all. I think AZ has the best climate in the world.

You have a heat wave and we are anticipating 10 inches of snow... Its just not fair.
post #28 of 28
Trade ya for that heat wave! It's 27 degrees here right now with a possibility of snow tomorrow and Sunday. The weather's been so odd, though, I'll probably be wearing a tank top next week!
