Today's high: 31F (just below 0C) ... tomorrow's high: 21 (WELL below 0C)
Went out today to do the ritual periodic starting of the bike and let it run a bit and got it to start easily ... man it does NOT like to warm up without a choke in this kind of cold. If I didn't have that knurled idle speed adjust screw, there'd be no way ...

I just checked my outdoor thermometer: -10 F, -25 C. Wind chill reported as -36F, which is I think about -52 C.

Record cold, and we have also had record snowfall, over two consecutive weeks with daily measurable snow.

Cleveland, Ohio is around -36 C with the wind chill. How much is a plane ticket to Sydney? I'll take heat stroke over frost bite.

First I would like to thank you for the weather report from the land down under..now BITE ME:)

Sitting here in Philadelphia where the current temp is 13F/-11C and anticipating my trip to New York state where tonight's temp is forecast to be -6F/-21C. And, before you ask, we are not riding the bikes up.

BTW, how's the job situation in Sydney for warehouse managers and surgical nurses?

Just got through a -12 degree night with a dandy little breeze. Bring on the global warming. Please.

Oh yeah, my daughter, who lives in Perth called me the other night complaining about the heat. Said she and hubby were going to the beach for a swim. Meanwhile it was about - 10 degrees C here, sorry, you'll not get much sympathy from me;););)
