My thermometer doesn't even go that low. Shocked

For us that still refuse the metric system LOL it is -32.8 F and a wind chill of -58 F. 

It's a balmy -8 C or 17.6 F here in the Buffalo/Niagara region.

I promised I wouldn't send you any cold nasty weather again like last year. This year you can blame Dave. It's all his fault. He mentioned something about sending you a surprise snow fall. Wait?...didn't I see snow not to long ago down your way? Well if you do see snow, remember it's all Dave's doings. He has a sick sense of humor. LOL

Yes it is another hard Winter week in San Diego.  It has gotten down to the high 30's at night and the low 60's during the day.  

Sorry I just could not help myself I spent the last two weeks in Baltimore visiting Grandchildren. I left the house may be 6 times.

At least when it gets cold you can put more layers on and cover up the skin.

When it gets to 110F in the shade and you are semi-nude and the water in the pool is hotter than your body temp, you have to go inside and sit in front of the frig with the freezer door open and the fan on high blowing on your face.

Somewhere in the middle is where I want to be.

Here in Florida we usually suffer from a case of 'severe clear' with a smattering of cold beer with an onslaught of short sleeve shirts and shorts coupled with the wearing of sandals mixed in with a sea-side lunch consisting of overflowing shimp and mahi-mahi. And to think I have to endure this all the time! LOLCool
