A Shock

Yesterday's high temperature: 80 degrees Fahrenheit (26.7 Celsius)

Today's high temperature: 38 degrees Fahrenheit (3.3 Celsius), with wind chill 24 degrees (-4.4 Celsius)

Just about every living thing in the area is really confused right now, including me. It's not very often that you need the air conditioning and the furnace within a 12 hour span.

yeah.. we're getting funny weather here in NY too.

why is it hotter here than in California? (followed by cold, then hot, then cold, then warm, then rain, then fog, then more rain, then sun, then rain, then cold, then wind... etc)

That's just plain weird. But it's worse here: it was 5degrees this morning, with an all day high of 20. Boo on weather.

It snowed here in Seattle this week, which is uncommon (well, that is would accumulate and such) and as fate would have it, our little 'un's were well received by the new neighborhood ankle biters as ours had SLEDS. Coming from Colorado mind you, this is all so very quaint. Heh.

35 degrees? In Texas? I didn't know it even got that cold there. Is this sort of like hell freezing over?

It's f---in' cold here in Southern California! I'm going to call up the TV weather guy and complain.

That's a Colorado kind of day. I remember days here where it's in the 70s at lunchtime and snowing by the mid-afternoon. In November we broke record high temperatures and then closed out the month with below-0 cold and snow. Weirdness.

Against all odds, I listed you as one of my Recommended links for December. :)

Wow, that swing in temps could definitely stop all known movement! The week of Thanksgiving was like that here in Southern California. It was 90+ on Monday and 65 or so by Wednesday. I bet it's wreaking havoc with everyone's sinuses!!

This week in MO my friend started the day at 60 degrees, by 4pm she had 2 inches of ice on her deck. Very strange indeed!

serena, I feel a little silly for whining after watching the Weather Channel for a couple of minutes. We got the cold, but we didn't get ice/sleet/snow and we still have power. Compared to everyone else, I think we came out OK.

crimsonking, Gawd, that's colder than a witch's tit. I haven't experienced temperatures like that since I moved south of the Mason Dixon line.

stucco, Have you been accused of bringing the snow with you? By about 100 different people? Who all thought they were being terribly clever? Isn't it hilarious, especially after the 57th time??

em, You know, I never even thought of that. Will keep an eye out for Beelzebub wearing ice skates.

anne, If it's cold in Southern California, hell MUST be freezing over. Does it ever get below 70 there?

ian, Thanks for the plug! What did I do to deserve that? Oooh, now I'm feeling pressure to perform.....

michael c, Absolutely everybody is sick here. I have been lucky so far, but Slag succumbed over the weekend. It's either the weather or the plague.

cheesy, Have you been sculpting with your mashed potatoes??

schmoopie, Yikes, ice is even worse than snow. It screws up everything. We get about 1/4 inch of ice every couple of years here and the whole city shuts down until it melts. Does your friend still have power? I guess I'll stop complaining about a little cold air.

She does still have power but so many people are still without. Ameren UE needs to get their heads out of their asses and upgrade. They lose power quite a bit in the greater St. Louis area.
