The wind is blowing 200 MPH and the snow is falling. It is very cold. I was outside earlier and nearly got blown over. I opened a door, and of course the wind caught the door, which I was holding on to. It was kinda like a wind tunnel thing only at -100 F and with snow. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/eek.gif

What happened in Alabama is one for evolution. Too stupid to get out of the way of a tornado or find reasonable shelter from one, then you were selected by nature as unfit. I'm glad actually. It's an improvement on the gene pool there. Now, if only I could get a plane to crash into every Southern Baptist Church on Sunday morning....

Andy, actually, I was joking somewhat. It is very windy and very cold, but not so bad as I said in my first post. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/biggrin.gif

Um, that's a unique opinion of the situation Mr. barnard... http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/rolleyes.gif

Over here it's really hot: 31 degrees Celsius (or higher) every day. Sometimes,when it's really hot, I go to the beach...
Anyways I prefer winter, cold, snow, blizzard and all that.

That would require intelligence and iniative on the South's part. Two things that I've never seen since having been forced to live here.

31c hot? Where are you hailing from Jem?

That's a nice cool day Down Under. We've had some nice weather lately, 32c - 37c, great outdoor working weather. Of course if it edges up near 39c - 44c like it does in summer then it's time to hit the beach. It's amazing how a few degrees of heat make the difference between work and slacking off http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/biggrin.gif

It's been sub 20 F for a while here now. Right now I'm at school (against my will) and it's either snowing or sleeting. Either way, the roads are worse than they were this morning. Did I ever mention I hate my school?? http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/rolleyes.gif

I love snow I hate coming to school while there's snow outside. I hate driving to school risking injuries. I'd rather take these finals after Christmas break. I'd also rather be at Adi's. Yeah that's where I wanna be. Screw this so-called learning crap.

I like the snow, and cold doesn't bother me outside.

Unfortunately, the heat in my apartment is controlled by computer. It shuts off is the temperature rises above zero. Fine in theory, but yesterday's "heat snap" of +3 is not warm enough to be without heat. I was wearing three frickin' layers and gloves as I sat here writing a take-home exam.

The warm snap yesterday was enough to melt all the snow, then last night, the temperature dropped way down to about -25 (+ windchill). It was snowing here this morning with wind gusts hard enough to shake this ancient deathtrap that I'm living in.

I still have Christmas shopping, groceries, and an exam to write (this Thursday), so staying home isn't an option. Apparently the concept of putting sand/gravel/salt on sidewalks never developped in Ottawa; there are two stretches from here to campus that are impassable. We're talking about an inch of perfectly smooth glare ice on frickin' inclines! http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/mad.gif

Plus the City of Ottawa has chosen now to tear up a good chunk of sidewalk that I now have to take a five-minute detour around (it's near a bridge that I need to cross, so I can't just walk past but have to come at it from a completely different direction).

Oh, and did I mention that the streets in my little slice of the city (being out of the main thouroughfares) aren't plowed until ll:00 P-frickin'-M?
