It's 1 F here in Minnesota. I don't much care for winter. At least the electricity for the computers also heat the house. Getting older so some day might just head south.

Default Cold snap finally ended.

Since Dec 13, 2008 we have only had one day with daytime high above normal of -11C. (Dec 28 was -8C). Today will be -6C.

During that time we got as low as -38C over night with windchills as low as -50C some days/nights.

This was a colder December/Early January than most but even after 50 years I still can't get used to the cold and still wonder why I'm still living here.

Today, the local news said that there was a high fire danger due to strong winds and low humidity. Temps were also unseasonably warm, even for my area.

Still though, wildfires in mid-January? Wow.

I'm still not used to the summer heat after 15+ years of living here. It gets up to 105 degrees (40 degrees C) on some days, and there's the occasional threat of a power outage due to high electricity demand. I'm not thinking about moving unless global warming turns out to be really bad, but the ideal weather for me would be somewhere like Reno, Nevada or Santa Fe, New Mexico. Summer highs are in the low 90s (33 degrees C), and winter lows are in the high teens to low 20s ( - 7 degrees C). So it's cold enough for snow, but not that cold.

This might qualify as 'extreme' ...

At my location near the 35th Parallel (North), we had 30 inches of snow in the month of December alone, about half of our average snowfall for a winter.
