#2 To all British Rantburgers:

-13C = +8F
That's our HIGH in Minneapolis today

-6C = +21F
Fairly typical winter temps in the Midwest and New England.

Is this really such a crisis as the press makes it out to be???


P.S. Temperature in International Falls (on the US/Canada border) was -26F (-32C) for comparison.

It is if houses aren't insulated or heated for those temps, if people don't have clothes for that kind of cold and if the authorities can't keep the streets cleared and safe to drive on.

#7 2 C as a high tomorrow, -13 C as a low in Colorado springs, CO.

Thursday is even better.

Typical Colorado winter weather.

#8 Sounds like when I was there for 3 years (Carson). Snow up to your knees in October. BUT had one of the guys in my section go home for Christmas, he had forgotten how cold Michigan could be.
