    It's -20 here today...

    It's actually -30 or more, with the wind chill...

    This is what our harbour looks like:




    End times!

    Fahrenheit or celsius? Either way, I'm glad I live where 45f is cold.

    Damn, I thought just a week ago you were having mild temps!

    That's intense.

    It's in the low 20's as a high, teens at night here. That damn Polar Jet!

    It was -7º F on my ride into work. It's edged up to -4º by now. Winter is finally here.

    Those are gorgeous photographs!

    those pictures are how I wish the world looked everyday, sans the temps close to those of Dante's 9th Circle.

    This is Halifax, NS, Canada. So that's -30C, which is around -22F. It's been very mild lately and it's supposed to go back up to +10C on Friday, so this cold snap is really surprising.

    Extreme temperatures bring out only the most dedicated cyclists and I am more than fine with that.

    'Tis true. There was a lot of eye rolling and head nodding this morning with my chilly cycling bretheren.

    Same thing here in VT. Been above freezing most of the winter so far, but it looks like we have normal winter weather for the rest of the week to come. Below freezing, but not nearly as cold as today.

    Amazing!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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
