A bit parky

A few days ago Sarah was commenting that it was a bit parky in Oklahoma. I was feeling quite happy that it was warmer here up north. Not any more. It was -10 degrees Fahrenheit at 9 a.m. this morning. Brrrr! And just look at the forecast for the next week - ooh, look, it's going to be much warmer on Tuesday :-)

I'm very glad I don't live somewhere that gets REALLY cold in the winter - the kind of place where you have to plug an engine block heater in to make sure your car's engine will start in the morning!

P.S. Did you notice the inconsistency in those screen shots -  the temp. was minus 10, but the weather forecast was still for a low for the day of 17. My maths is bad, but isn't that a 27 degree difference? Quite an error margin!

Weird weather here. Heavy snow overnight, then slush and flooding the following day!

It's blinking brass monkey weather here too. Can't believe it's still not February!

It actually warmed up to 29˚F (minus 2˚C) this afternoon! Still wearing the long underwear though :-)
That's what I get for feeling smug about the south being colder than the northeast last week!

You know you're used to it when you check the temp before you go out, see it's 28°F and think a sweatshirt will do.

It's 23F here this morning on Long Island. I think it's probably colder with you, though!

Almost American said...

Yes, you're right NVG - it's only 19˚F at almost 2 pm. More snow (5 to 10 inches) forecast for tomorrow.

It was -16C (3F) here yesterday, so quite toasty in comparison to you! Still, it gave me a chance to wander around in my Union Jack scarf! :D

You have a Union Jack scarf? I want one!
