    Default so...how's the weather?

    Of course we're having unusual weather here in Texas. Temps were in the upper 60's today. 74 deg. predicted for the first day of winter tomorrow, but then are supposed to flip to just 47 the very next day.
    How unusual is the weather where you're from? Any one expecting a white Christmas?

    We got a good dusting of snow last night, and it was "O" degrees on the porch this morning when I left for the station.

    Had to set up an LZ for back to back choppers ... now THAT'S wind chill !

    It's 5 degrees right now.

    Suppose to warm up and rain on thursday, but cool off with snow on friday and Christmas day. YES ... WHITE CHRISTMAS !!

    It was a Hazy, Hot, and Humid 11 degrees when I rolled my fat, lazy butt out of bed this morning...... In Durham, NC.

    I thought this states was supposed to be warm?

    It was a whole 6 degrees last night when I went to bed, we got just enough snow on Sunday afternoon to make the road conditions hazardous, causing several vehicle accidents. I love those hot hands things, lol, I think that's the only thing that kept my fingers from freezing and falling off. I went to fill out the report and the pen was frozen and wouldn't write, but being the always prepared firefighter that I am , I had one that was in my coat pocket that was useable.

    Right now, it's about 15 degrees. The weather guys are saying that we MAY have a white Christmas.

    About 54 right now, but then again, its 10 PM. Was in the 70s when the sun was out.

    Now before everyone starts throwing things at me, in 5 days I'll be flying back to Indiana, where its predicted to be a a high of 8 and a low of -4 on Friday.

    emtbff927, lol, I CAN'T STAND IT!!! I hate winter. That's why I visit my uncle in Humble in the winter and not the summer...just checked the weather for there and it's 60...compared to the 15 that it is here. Must be nice to beable to rodeo all year long. Good thing I don't live in TX, I'd say forget the fire call I'm going to the rodeo. I'm not sure how you guys make it through the summer though...visited 1 time in the summer and I'll never do it again!

    Sunday started out a balmy 24F and went down hill from there. Made it to 9F by 5pm and 3F by Midnight. Thats when we got called to watch a Natural gas leak.

    Monday didnt improve. It topped out at 10F with a dusting of snow.

    Today it is supposed to be more tolerable in the temperature department, but 1-2" of snow is supposed to fall in a relatively short amount of time. I hope this isnt a sign of how the rest of the winter will go!

    Well, Sunday night through to Monday morning (when I was working) it was -25 deg C with a wind chill to -39 deg C!!! And, we had a 2 alarmer on the go! I felt so sorry for the crews on duty that night, it was so cold it was dangerous!!

    On top of that, the temperature in the comm room was messed up...we sat in 17 deg 'warmth' all night (that's just under 63 deg F). It's hard to type wearing mittens!!

    So, wherever you are, whatever the weather conditions, stay safe out there!!

    LMAO - I hope your talking about the weather

    Weather right now is frightful - hmmm just looked out the window - the 5 minute blizzard is over - slight dusting of snow with a balmy -5c. I live in southern Alberta though so it will probably warm in another 5 minutes - gotta love the weather patterns here!

    Talking should you get too cold

    It has been averaging about the mid to upper 50's here,some early morning fog, but then what would San Franciso be without a view of the Golden Gate Bridge shrouded in fog. (for all us romatics who like fog anyway.)

    It looks like Christmas will be bright sunny and about 55-59F. A typical bay area Christmas.
