It's actually -30 or more, with the wind chill...
This is what our harbour looks like:
Damn, I thought just a week ago you were having mild temps!
It's in the low 20's as a high, teens at night here. That damn Polar Jet!
damn...i'm not so sure about moving up north anymore.
those pictures are how I wish the world looked everyday, sans the temps close to those of Dante's 9th Circle.
Where is this?
Canada, Halifax to be exact.
8 degrees F this morning... im sitting at my compute tryign to build up the courage to ride to work =p
The beauty of cold weather far outdoes warm weather in my opinion. Being that cold sucks because it is hard to go outside, but on a cold, sunny day with blue skies it just looks so clean and crisp. Love it.
not to wish you any horrible weather, but i'm glad it's freakin cold SOMEWHERE. the east coast has been having this sissy weather, which while i enjoy from a comfort standpoint, it really makes me start worrying about global warming and such...
Those are awesome photos! I've decided as a privileged, 30-something woman, I'm no longer riding when it is below 20F, unless plyed by special events.
Higher ground for the apocalypse!
agreed. it's one of the reasons i love november. it's usually moderately cold, and kind of bleak and grey most of the time. the beauty of cold weather can be awesomely depressing.Originally Posted by DoshKel
I don't remember CO ever being THAT cold...or have things changed???Originally Posted by lala
those pics are awesome.
yesterday was the first really cold day in NYC that i remember, and tons of people were still out riding, just doing it more poorly. i wanted to punch a lot of people.
riding home around 1am i met up with my arch nemesis, black ice, and almost ate it but managed to maintain.
once i went camping and it was -20f. ****ing awesome. we stayed in a cabin with no power or heat, just a cast iron stove, and to do dishes we had to hack a hole in the river then boil the water. the outhouse had icesicles on the toilet seat and my bag froze to ground.
Nice to know you're having winter this year! I was talking to someone who lives in Halifax in December, who said it hadn't gotten cold yet.
nice pics, but damn that's insane.
5 degrees ridin' to work this mornin'. 11 miles. it was fine. i wouldn't want to go for too many more miles than that though. my feet wuz gettin' cold!!!!

Haha, we broke all the previous warmth records for January here. 18°C and stuff like that. 60F and more for you with your silly scale.
It's totally crazy... we somehow skipped winter completely this year. It hasn't even snowed yet. I guess you got two servings over there to compensate
