How's your weather?
« on: January 16, 2009, 09:51:28 AM »
So, 2009 has started since a while, for some of us it's the time for winter sports, others do not have the occasions to play in the snow as there is none in their country. So, how the weather in your place?

Here in Quebec, it's minus 30C with the sun shining on the thermometer (it's actually really sunny!). With the wind, it can go as low a -45C (-49F).

I'll give you an idea of how cold that is. First, I'm not even sure what's the exact temperature, since not only does my thermometer doesn't have marks under -40, the red liquid is actually broken/frozen inside. When I open my door handle, which is metal, the few seconds I touch it literally burns my skin so much is cold. The first air puff I take freezes my nostrils. Within a few seconds, I already have my nose running (usually it takes at least 15 minutes) but I can't actually even feel it before it touches my mouth (ew, I know, but it's more like water-ish running). The plastic bag I was carrying (didn't have space anymore in my backpack) was itself worse then ice for my hands. Then, when I finally reach destination, I have to take my glasses off due to the white liquid mist that forms due to humidity sticking to the cold surface right? Well this time, the mist actually froze on the surface of my glasses.

And that, for the third day in a row. And will last for two more days apparently.

On the bright side, we don't have school due to that  :reivsmile:

Yea it's freakishly cold.
I'm literally freezing in the hot afternoon of an equatorial climate. The winds are so strong I hear them howling even when my windows are shut tight, locked and the doors closed.
The wind will cease to be one day, and as I pass, what marks remain?

Fine, thanks for asking. The sky is grayish, temperature is just above freezing, strong winds, and too baggy clothes...
If I could, I'd turn back time, forget it all and leave this mess behind.

Here the weather is kind of unstable..
  It rain sometimes but mostly it's just strong winds.
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything can ever be this good again
The only thing i'll ever ask of you, you gotta promise not to stop when i say when..

I think global warming has to do with this.

It's turning scary.

If it's cooling, it's good. But if it's freezing, we want the temp to go up.

and global warming doesn't necessary just mean global temp up, there are many other effects from global warming. this might be one.

Yes, such as wind changes and the gulf stream. Although technically the gulf stream gives Europe southern warm and gives North-America northern cold. Right now looks like gulf stream has gotten stronger (although the current temperature drop (worse since 1955) is probably due to other factors).

Climate is so complicated  :-\

Its freezing here, especially in the morning! In the highlands, I think the temperature was kinda like 8 degrees C.
So I always wear my sleeves.

I dunno about today, but yesterday was windchill of -40 F or something. So, yeah, it's pretty much cold EVERYWHERE!!!
