What's the temperature where you are?

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 2, 2010, 12:01 AM
My weather widget says it is -8 Fahrenheit (-22 Celsius) here. The projected low is -12 F (-24 C). That might be an old number, though.

It used to get colder here more often, and so I am concerned about the climate. But as far as dealing with the cold goes, I think I’d rather be in Florida. A less crowded, less monotonous version of the Miami metro, anyway.

About 0°C, which is normal for the season (and quite cold enough for me)

My widget says the last reading taken was about -23 C. That’s probably at the St. Paul Downtown Airport.

I lived most of my life up to age 30 near New York City, where you will see above-freezing temperatures in winter, and I still find Minnesota winters fascinating after more than 18 years here, and despite the apparent warming we have experienced during that time.

-2C° and we feel the cold :).
Snow is rare, once in several years.
But, if our friend Gulf Stream drift away a bit due to climatic changes, we will be chasing polar bears of from our gardens, being at the same latitude as Monreal.

That’s the same latitude I’m at. :)

The Gulf Stream helps keep the winters in the New York City area from being too harsh, too, where I grew up. But it’s not as dramatic an effect as in Europe, for whatever reason. My guess would be because the weather comes mostly from the west. The Appalachian Mountains tend to catch most of the snowfall, though. OTOH, The same warm Gulf of Mexico water is where the water comes from to make the snow! It’s also where the energy comes from for those tornadoes we get here in Minnesota. :dohtwo:

I guess Gulf Stream is closer to th coast in Europe ; the fact is it is very influencial, and we depend on it.

Yeah, looking at maps of the stream, I see that it veers away from the east coast of North America after it passes Cape Hatteras in North Carolina.

In the Miami-Fort Lauderdale area it is basically just offshore and this Boy Scout site has some photographs: [link]
