Jnanne, you are correct. "Cold" to us northerners is a far cry from "cold" to southerners. I don't even put on a coat until it is below 45 degrees. It feels like spring. I am from Cincinnati and lived in Chicago for a while. Talk about cold, visit Chicago. It's the wind chill that will get you. You can get frostbite in only seconds.

Of course, "heat" is another story. People from up north do not know what hot is until they visit Houston.

We have a good 18" of NEW snow that fell overnight!!! Wind is blowing and huge snow drifts are forming. The temps arent that bad yet, but are to drop down into the single digits as the day goes on. I live right off one of the main highways that goes through our town, and generally there is a steady stream of travellers. NOT today. The snow plow has gone thru and only a few people brave enough to get out there, following it. Bet more than not,most couldnt get out of their driveway. I cant tell you how many times weve had weather warnings of expected huge amounts of snow predicted and, all we get is a light dusting to 3". This one is a total shock, and all in one drop.

About 10 inches here of new snow between yesterday and this morning. Wind chills are at about 25 below zero right now and it is COLD! I had to shovel a path for the dog to go outside. She's a boxer, so not a short dog, but she could not walk through the snow drifts. Did I mention it was COLD? Brrr....

We went to Prescott, Arizona for the week. Prescott is Arizona's Christmas city. Saw a parade, the courthouse lighting, a music fest (where all the stores in town stay open, but not for sales, each has live music and snacks), a ginger bread house contest, etc. It was great.

However, on Monday we got 5 inches of snow and lost power in the cabin. We were without power or heat till Friday night. Did not have to worry about the food in the fridge spoiling as it was 40 degrees in the cabin.

Yes, we could have left, but we had a great time regardless.

As for the question, I'm back in Tucson and it is in the high 60s.

40 degrees would feel like a heat wave for us back here in MN/WI. When the temps hit that degree here, we wear just a light jacket or sweatshirt. Having been in warmer climate states such as AZ., I get a kick out of the locals all bundled up. Can always tell who is an out of state visitor, cant you? MORE snow and freezing rain predicted for today here. Theyre saying up to six more inches of this white stuff! No worry about not having a white Christmas this year.

High today was 71. It was 26 overnight, though. My Christmas cactus--all outdoors down here--are going nuts. I have never seen so many blooms on any of these plants since Grandma was alive. She had them when my dad was a kid and she rotated how they were watered so at least one plant bloomed each month of the year.

I have six of them (there were dozens--divided among the cousins) and they sure like this weather!

Sunshine with a touch of cold this afternoon ... enough to wear a sweater when outside. But it is to get really cold tonight -- freezing temperatures. For us Texans, that IS cold !

Yesterday we had some sleet with a bit of snow on top of the sleet. Today the roads were just wet (will probably have ice tonight, but will be drivable during the day) and some of this sleet has already melted.

So far, the big blizzard we were to get is a fizzle. We got about 3" of the white stuff last night, freezing rain today and tonight. I just got home from my daughters, and it is drizzling, but the roads werent too bad. Guess later on were to get more snow, but, will we get the 6-10" predicted---doubt it.Have to thank all those that had to give up time with their families, to keep us safe on the roads, theyve done a marvelous job.

In north Texas we are having fits with the weather! Snow, winds, and ice designated parts of our area as "Blizzard conditions." My daughter and son-in-law quit their drive and are now in a motel because the roads have closed. A normal six hour drive (includes restroom breaks) turned into an 11 hour trip except they still have 2 more hours tomorrow morning if the roads are okay. Jack-knifed semi's caused most of the problems. Needless to say, they are frustrated !

We had 13 water mains break yesterday and schools are canceled tomorrow in all of Caddo Parish. After spending most of my life in IL, I don't find the weather right now to be the most horrible winter--but my friends and neighbors who have always lived in LA can't imagine anything worse. Teens overnight and 20-30s during the day for the next several days is making this the coldest winter since who knows when.

Much of the South is not prepared for this kind of cold. And I do admit, that for me personally, anything under 85 is colder than my ideal and once I get cold, I really don't care to hear about wind chill, etc. It just makes me feel worse. I understand that the below zero temps I endured in the North is MUCH colder than what we are experiencing here, but darn it. Cold is uncomfortable in a state that doesn't even sell winter coats.

Nope. We have decided we are not going to purchase this uninsulated home in which we currently live. The hunt is on!

Edited to add--according to the news last night the total number of broken water mains was up to 17. They are replacing the old iron ones with PVC, which should hold up better the next time this happens. A representative of the city was interviewed and he speculated that we will have much worse problems should the bitter cold actually last 72 hours or more.

Minus 28 all around the Billings area last night. School busses did not run today, as so many would not start. And yes, we are looking forward to the expected warmup to mid- to upper- 30's on the weekend! Mud will be come a blessing...

I have to add my chuckles also. When watching the evening news and noticing "winter coats, gloves and ear muffs" being worn in FLORIDA! Local friends home for Christmas, said they werent going back until they could do more than sit in the house, like the friends in Florida are doing. Oh yes, and then there are the states that dont get much snow, or none at all. They have no idea how to address driving on slick, snowy roads. That's hillarious!
