To those who live in warmer climates and to those who have mild winters...

This day, and this day only, I envy you all greatly... Why? This is why...

I envy all those who live in Montreal that didn't have to leave their houses today...

This morning it was worse with it being -38 C/-36.4 F TT^TT

It's supposedly going to get better within the following few days... But tonight it will be just as bloody cold because of the stupid Arctic wind dropping the temperature even further...

The heating (oil and electric) companies are requesting that we lower our usage for today and tomorrow since they've reached a record high of usage in the province. They've also asked us to reduce hot water and non-essential lighting during peak hours between 6AM to 9AM and 4PM to 8PM... And I don't think anyone will... They're asking us to lower our usage WHEN IT'S FREEZING OUTSIDE!!

American here had to convert that to Fahrenheit and wow wow wow, that's the temperature WITHOUT the wind chill!? OUCH!

I went ahead and converted for Chicago. It's currently a balmy -2C here ;)

That's WITHOUT the damn Arctic wind chill of hell...

The weather you have in Chicago is nothing, at that temperature, I'm probably only wearing a sweater and still in my sneakers...

It wouldn't have been stupid, it would have been suicide...

There are underground shopping malls here as well, but you still need to come up at some point because you'll need to eventually go home...

I am SO GLAD I didn't have to go out today. x_x That's just horrible. Fuck our winter, I hate it. TT__TT And I hate people asking me why I hate it 'but snow is so beautiful~~' NOT IT'S NOT. ARGH. *kills snow violently with candles*

Screw the candles!!

*brings out a flamethrower*

But indeed, today is one of those days I would have called in "sick" if I had work today... Everyone had red cheeks, ears and noses if they didn't have scarves or a hat on their head...

Our stupid Québecois winter... People don't understand our pain at all...

We are not far behind you.. Our temp in Hartford Connecticut (CT), is now at -12 C (or 10 degrees)without the windchill factor. I did not go out today. Some poor lady went out her driveway here in CT and they found her frozen to death. Good grief it is cold. Don't put pets out today or tomorrow. We are also getting another noreastern on Weds. We already had 25 inches (63.5 cm) of snow last week. It's like a frozen tundra here. Oh well, weather patterns are weird around the world.

That's A LOT of snow!! I can just imagine the amount of shoveling that you guys must have did and the exasperation when you looked out your window to only see more snow once you've finished...

You have my sympathies... Our evil winters...

I think that kind of weather would kill me.
HAHA. Who on earth would pay attention to the heating company when everyone is feeling so cold? lol

You poor, poor souls D:
We're just getting endless rain here on the west coast.

I can't even imagine how cold that is.
Stock up on hot packs and hot chocolate :)

But where you live it's WARMER than here!!

Though I imagine all the shoveling is horrendous... Especially after having finished to only have to do it again...

Then you wonder why the early settlers came to Canada... Morons...

Holy crap, that's cold! We've got a bit of snow here, but the temp isn't anywhere near that cold. Stay warm!

Yeah...I should have sent out a warning to all my friends to my west, that we (Alaska) had a high pressure that was really high up on the state, and it was holding all the cold air fromt he center of the state down, and then the normal Low was hold the cold air in the center up, so the only place the cold could go was west.

It's been warmer here upper 20○F to 32○F (-6○C to 0○C) at day and about 21○F at night. We even got snow! So you should be having warm weather coming soon.

Isn't funny how weather works.

BTW everyone really should lesten about the oil and electric. Year before last everyone just sucking, and it made the grid go out. So no one had any heating. So the state put in a remind/program just to remind people to help save power. For the most part it just tells people to unplug items not needing to be plugged in ( like a Toaster) and for everyone to gather in one room and close vents to other rooms.
