After 2 days of cold blizzards, the sun and manageable cold climate is back. I don't know about your winters but when the winds picks up in Beijing here, you can really freeze till you shiver. I was waiting outside the mall entrance for my husband to pick me up and I was already shivering underneath my thick winter clothing, I cannot imagine what my colleagues taking the public transport waiting for the bus out in the open. To those that had celebrated Thanksgiving a belated greetings to one and all, hope that there was much warmth around, plenty to eat and a happy time together. So how is your winter at your place?

Winters here are unpredictable. Some years it can reach 20 below and the midwest USA is noted for its high winds. Snow is abundant and humidity is high making the cold seep to your very core. However, even in the midst of winter you can get a sunny warm day and the temperature will raise 40 or 50 degrees warmer than the day before. Although it is nice to have a break, lots of folks get sick from trying to adjust to the different temps. Then sometimes the winter will be mild all year long..Temps will stay in the 30s, 40s and 50s, even getting higher occasionally. Winter has not hit yet, so far our temps have been in the 50s and 60s except for an occasionally 39 degrees and no snow yet.

The weather in general is just as unpredictable as such the forecasts can be equally inaccurate. We had like -7 and -8 degrees Celsius here. Usually, that is still manageable but when the winds from the north starts blowing, it will be very very cold.

Since there is much pollution in China winter here does not change anything as far as air quality is concern. So besides wearing thick winter clothing we are all donning face mask to overcome the bad air problem. It has been very cold these few days since we are experiencing minus 1-9 degrees Celsius

@paigea It's alright besides the air quality problem is not your fault, so you need not apologize.

Thank you dear heart...thank you for the wishes. It is snowing here too, but not like the terrible blizzards I have been seeing on video for China. Stay safe and warm my friend.

@artemeis I do too. It is necessary to wrap up very warm when going out and not to fall down.

Sounds like you had a great party there. Hope the weather is equally as cheerful as the mood at home. As for me, I did make it back home with my hubby. It is milder today and hope it will stay that way.

No matter what it is being written and read by you, I would still encourage you to make a visit to or winter festival in Harbin where there are very beautiful ice carvings to go along with the experience the cold chilling weather.

@SIMPLYD Harbin is in HeiLongJiang, the northern part of China which has other known names like Ice City, Oriental Paris and even Oriental Russia. It is the early settlement of the Jews and Russians in China. Today, it is a very busy city of commerce and trade and in the winter season, tourism. You may want to check out more about this place and consider it to be your next holiday destination.

It;s winter indeed and how I hate to put on the layers of winter clothing and the sniffles when my nose get a mix of cold and hot air. I do hope that the winter will remain as mild as possible without any storm or blizzards.
