What's the Weather Like Where You Are?
« on: December 02, 2010, 01:56:21 AM »
We all live all over the place... So what's the weather like where you are?

Me - 66⁰F - clear - cool breeze coming down off of Mauna Loa - sky full of stars - no moon till later.

Out in a lawn recliner on the lanai, a Torpedo in my left hand, wife-made lumpia in my right... yum!

Seriously?  The guy who lives in Hawaii wants to know what our weather is like?  Are you sure you're not just trying to rub it in? :)

37F.  Overcast.  I have no idea where the wind is coming from because it's too damn cold to be outside in a weazeltoe state of dress.

We should have sun breaks for the next several days though, so there's that.

27 f/-3 c, a reasonable amount of snow on the ground. Getting up to 43 f this weekend, so I may go out and throw the ol' pigskin on the grounds of the chateau with my nephew. Overcast, overcast, overcast. I miss NYC winters. All sun all the time, blistering cold, but lots of sun.

Eastern PA was windy as heck, with horizontal monsoon, temps in the 50's yesterday, then cleared and dropped into the 30's. Manchester UK, where I am now is 32º and has about an inch of snow on the ground.

Hey winter finally made it here too! 52 frigid degree this morning, and the high is expected to be 72... And of course it will be sunny here in Fort Lauderdale.

Very windy and rainy in New Hampshire yesterday, but it did blow the rest of my leaves onto the neighbor's property so there's that.  Back into the low-mid 40's and mostly sunny the rest of the week.  Snow showers predicted for Monday.  Here comes winter.

This is too serious a question coming from you...what's the catch.  ;) jk

Alright...I'll bite.

It's 39F and sunny right now but going down to 29F tonight as winter is beginning to awaken.

Feel better now.  :-*

14F...freaking cold. But it's what we decendents of Vikings were meant for!!  And it's a good reason to brew warming, high gravity brews.  ;D

25F, light snow, a light dusting on the ground.  A little colder than normal for early Dec.

19°F currently, high of 27°F today. Three feet on the ground, and there's supposed to be another 4-8" by the weekend. Days are beautiful, clear blue skies, and it snows almost every night. (We make our own weather.) Highs for the weekend are supposed to be right around freezing, so unless the snow is bad I'm going to get in my last homebrew for the season. The last time it was above freezing was Nov 15. So a really mild winter so far.

And no, I wouldn't trade it for Hawai'i.

Yeah, sounds like rubbing it in to me; after a warm fall, winter just arrived.  You could have asked this in October...

Makes me want to ask, how much is a gallon of milk or gas or some other non-local commodity.

So, yeah, it's 29F now, but milk is $1.99 and gas is $2.89.
