Woke this morning....far from home. The temperature is -2C. A couple of days ago it was a sweltering 34C. We didn't bring a scraper to clear the windows. Oops

I'm positively surprised to see the degrees in Celsius from someone living on the North American continent. Does that mean that only US Americans use Fahrenheit?

In Canada they use the Metric system, not the US system.

@silvermist I have often wondered, when people go for vacations to foreign countries, they are practically hustled from one destination to another, as they have to finish watching what has been selected to be shown to them. There is no room for jet lag, and no room for enjoying the place as such, understanding everything about it. That can't be holiday. They need to go there, and stay..take long walks know what snow entails ...so that when they return, they are thankful for what they have. Instead, they end up talking about different structures they saw...sigh.

I'm in the UK and although it's not cold it's so damp and drizzly. We didn't have a good summer either so the sunshine seems so far away. However -2C is very cold so I hope you are wrapped up warm.

I put on a sweater. Once the van was warm...then it was time to start removing layers of clothes.

We watched the thermometer in the van climb and fall. Once it got up to 6C and mere moments later it was back to 1C. I guess it kept us entertained while driving.

@Morleyhunt We have very different temperature in the area even at very close distance. In winter we almost never go under 10 degrees Celsius, but a village at only 10 Km from us goes down to -22.

@toniganzon we don't even consider that sweater worthy. If I'm going for my morning walk. 10C is when I pull out my sweater.

I seldom use a scraper but prefer to let the car warm up and melt the frost. Then I get to slip into a warm car instead of shivering for the first couple of miles. I can take the heat but cold weather practically paralyzes me. Don't know how ya'll Canadians stand it.

That's what we did. I started the van...turned the controls to defrost and the. We loaded the van... How do we deal with the cold? We do t really have much choice. We dress warm...and complain about the cold...or we just deal with it....its when you need to wear mittens in the house I tell my husband....its time to start the furnace.

@UncleJoe my husband is always much warmer than I am. I've actually put on mittens to make him aware that it's time to bump the heat up.

I do not know Celsius i am sorry about it being so cold where you are located. It sounds cold if you need scapers on the windows! It is 44 degrees F here and quite brisk! Some areas in Northwestern Pa had a lot of frost. I shouldn't be getting any until October 11 the average first frost. Be warm and get home safely!

It's cold at home too. -2C is about 28F. Unusual for this time of year...but I remember an October ...2013....we hat heavy wet snow (12") on October 12-13. It was a weather disaster. Some homes had no electricity for a week.

@Morleyhunt Those are frigid temperatures! The lowest cold temperature around here this morning is slightly south of us at 37 degrees F this morning!~ In my area, it is 44 degrees! i am going to do some research of earliest snow here as I do not remember any snows that occurred in October, but do remember a few in early to mid-November. i was in third grade when the November 12 snow occurred and remember the teacher telling us the storm was unusual that early, Don't know the rest of the dates in the past 40m years or so since then

That is a bit too frosty for me. I know that it is inevitable that we will get this weather. We were expecting a frost last night, but it didn't happen in the valleys. probably happened in the mountains though.

We saw frost along the sides of the road and even in the pine trees as we travelled down the road.

Our homes are designed to deal with the cold. You learn to dress for it. Sometimes it's easier when it's cold then when it's really hot.
