    Another question for you to think about and weigh in on.

    Yesterday I asked a question here and one person was saying how cold it was in Washington state and a member from Pennsylvania noted how cold it has been there. Well, I know how blasted cold it gets in PA, but it kind of surprised me that Washington was cold. I live in Colorado where we get mostly mild weather all year long and we have broke the record for cold twice here this week and tied the record another day. It has been below zero much of the week and we are getting ready for another Arctic blast on Saturday.

    So, how cold is or has it got where you live. -19 here in the Denver area.

    Well, yesterday the roads iced over, but I still managed to come in to work. It was 24 most of the day and finally warmed up to 31. It was a toasty 37 this morning, though

    Well, it was -19 a couple of days ago at Denver International Airport but it was 20* this morning. I'm hoping enough ice is gone today from the side roads that I'll be able to take the motorcycle to work again. Riding in this cage is driving me insane

    Yes, yes, winter coming.

    It's a cold as it's going to be. Wear my boots and coat today. When you Live in Michigan it gets cold, then it gets hot and humid, when it's not cold.

    In my last meeting, we determined that the local Farenheit temperature in Seattle (20 or so) was pretty close to the Celsius temperature of where one of our remote workers was videoconferencing in from (Charlotte, NC)...

    It's 37 degrees with 100% humidity in So. Cal. Seeing some snow flurries at the moment, nothing sticking though. This was at 1:42pm.

    That's about right. You didn't travel on surfaces angled greater than 10 from October to April. Too hazardous. Unless you were in a 4-wheeler with your tire chains on.

    I've observed that my wife seems to have a temperature tolerance that ranges from 76 F (freezing) to 80 F (boiling). She's a native Texan. Being female doesn't help either. She can be complaining of chills while I'm sweating from the brow.

    15 F in the New England area; a few winters back we got wind chills -50 F...

    If it's above 32 F, then it's t-shirt weather for me!
