  • A little over a month ago we had a blizzard here. Now we are about to have a heat wave. It will get up to 90° F (that is 32° C) this week. I still prefer this to the cold, though.

      That should be a novel change for you. 32°C is the normal summer temperature in my region!

      Ive always preferred cold. It's winter here and it's so much better than summer. :D :D

      Excellent! We are always looking for skilled operatives and agents for the squirrel squadron.

      Allies of the Squirrel Squadron may call upon our aid by entering the following console code:

      Now, Tresset, you just ought to play IWD! As that game actually has a quest to help squirrels.
  • Some days I just hate living here in Minnesota... Especially days like today when I have a blizzard in "spring".

      You could move to Kansas. The seasons change daily here!

      You have a blizzard in spring in Minnesota. Here in Kolkata, we don't even have a snowfall during winter. So I never got to see it snow in front of my eyes! :D (except in television, of course.)

      Our winters are like springtime in the higher latitudes... ;)

      I hope you get to see snow in person sometime, there really is no other weather like it.

      Heh, around here we have a cure for the desire to see snow. We call it "shoveling".

      I start feeling cold just when it's about 12-14°C here. Wonder how it must feel there... *shivers* (of course, this must sound funny to you! XD )

      Nah, weather is diffrent alla round the globe, and the US is still enough of a melting pot, that I've gotten to expoerience first hand people's reaction to new weather several times. I remember chatting with a man who had JUST immigrated over from South Africa that same year when it started to snow. He had never seen it before and was acting like he won the lottery. That was a good day.

      That isn't all that bad. There are usually a few days each year when it gets to -20°C with -26°C or colder for a wind chill. I am not sure you would even know what wind chill is, but it is a very real factor where I live.
    • Rik_Kirtaniya

      Yeah, wind chill... makes you lose heat faster than if it were a still day.

      I guess it's just like the Monsoons here in India. It's a beautiful season if you are sitting inside your home, with a hot cup of tea and hot snacks, and listening to a song... Watching it drizzle endlessly, with the cool wet wind blowing at you gently, makes you feel splendid and refreshed... sometimes even poetic. (Not to mention that it comes as a welcome relief after the hot summer months here.)

      But just in case you have school or office... it becomes a struggle sometimes (umbrellas and raincoats don't always work, the horizontal component of the rain's velocity vector drenches you thoroughly ;) ). Of course, many people enjoy getting wet in the rain... but for me, indoors is a better place during the Monsoons! :D

      Oh yeah, wind chill SUCKS.

      I was wondering: just like there's a politics thread named "Politics. The feel in your country." (though I never bothered to take a peek inside it), we can have another thread about weather and climate in general, and name it: "Weather. The FEEL in your country." XD

      How does that sound? ;)

      Sounds fine, but I doubt it will get the same amount of pages :)

      It might be neat.
    • Rik_Kirtaniya
      Rik_Kirtaniya
      Yeah, it might be interesting as well. Cool discussion, minimal controversy, and the best thing when you're bored, and want something for a change... for the Weather always keeps on changing. ;)
