    Unbelieveable! I washed my car, it was so yucky with all the snow and salt grime. Put my winter car mats in and even vacuumed out the inside. Then I picked up all the twigs that fell from the trees that the melting snow uncovered and picked up the dog do-do. So now I'm ready for the next wave of winter. It's been a very very strange weather pattern.

    A year ago this week we were iced in for a week here in metro Atlanta. This week we are supposed to hit 68 degrees. We had a couple of cold days earlier this week but other than that it has been a really mild winter so far.

    Not that I am complaining!

    We are having mild weather in Chicagoland as well. I'm loving it. I've never been a winter person but we don't want to move the kids while they are both in high school.

    Very stranger weather. Where the heck is our snow?! And I hate winter, but I'm still po'd we haven't had any snow! Halloween doesn't count as that was just plain weird.

    Don't hate me, but it was 84F here on Wednesday. Slightly cooler the past few days, though, but still well over 70!

    We had 52 yesterday-I walked Ella in my shorts!! As far as I'm concerned we can skip snow this winter. I always have my students try to guess the first date we will have 3 or more inches of snow. One student jokingly said March 1st (this was back in Nov). He is the only one still in the running. I told him if he is right and that is our first snowfall of 3 inches or more I'm buying him a present.

    In which case... what would you have to wear at -40?

    (its the same in both C and F... its where the two systems "meet")

    That's easy . . . I wouldn't be caught dead anywhere the temperature would be -40 degrees. There's a reason I live in the south. :bigsmile:

    Its NOT -40 here NOW... most years, though, we'd have gotten there before now... this year? is as crazy as for everybody else!

    Do you actually go outside when it is 40 below? I can't even imagine.

    We used to deliver papers at -40 - no option, you have the route, you deliver.

    We don't do outdoor physical activities at -40, though... no skating, tobogganing, etc.
    We do those things at -10 (about 0F).

    You know why the weather is good? Because I busted my fanny to be totally ready for winter's worst this year. :faint:

    But I'm enjoying it while we have it. :)

    Maybe we are having a nice winter because my dad is mad that Lindsay took Keyana so he is punishing them. Last year he gave us several small snowfalls so he could give her little kisses. He isnt going to let Lindsay get any kisses for taking his baby away from us.
