-4C? Luxury. I stand on the deck in -30C in my pyjamas to let the dog have his bedtime pee. Mind you, I can't take the heat like you probably can. Of course, in the cold, one can always add clothing. In the heat there's only so much you can take off.
Tolerable -4C (24F) right now -- expecting lots of snow Saturday night, largest snowstorm in over 15 years. Weather casters have said that before but it went around us and we didn't get a snowflake. We'll see if that happens again.
I've got the feeder full of seeds and there isn't a single bird in it. When I was a lad we used to get Hungarian Partridges come in all kinds of weather. If it was really cold they'd puff up their feathers and huddle in a dent in the snow while they ate. I guess the birds I have here now are just not large enough to retain heat no matter how much they fluff.
Stopped snowing last night, the show plows where out in our neighborhood about 10:00 pm shoveling the snow from the street up into our yards. Nice clear day this morning, we have not seen this much snow in 30 years. Temp isn't as bad as they thought it would be either, only about 1F.
As AD pointed out, we have more than enough where he is as well as in the great white north where I am. Unfortunately it's too bloody cold to go out and enjoy it. It's supposed to go to -3C by the weekend but I won't get to enjoy it as I'll be stuck inside for 4 days.
Yes it is -- and you can keep all that snow where you are, I don't want it here :) But I'll bet winter sports are great where you live.
I couldn't help myself -- I just had to repost that picture on Facebook didn't mention anyone's name. I don't think anyone around here has ever seen that much snow unless they traveled up to Canida.
