Mark Twain ain’t felt nothing

Witchy's Titty

The coldest winter I’ve ever spent, was a summer in San Francisco” Or something like that.

I usually look at my weather widget every morning before leaving, so I can dress appropriately for the day. This happens when you walk to school every day and it’s about 3 miles each way.

When I saw it this morning, I was like… “No… that can’t be right.” Dressed appropriately anyway.

When I got outside, I felt my ears instantly freeze up and fall off my head.

One of my neighbor’s started a fire underneath her car engine to give it a cold start. An alaskan malamute told me he was heading back to Alaska where it was much warmer. And our landlord is installing a fireplace right next to our already functioning heater.

So yes Mark, it’s that cold. Not that I’m complaining, since this weather prepares me for Snowboarding Lake Tahoe. w00t.

    if only it would rain so that we’d actually get SNOW and not just coldness up in the Sierras …

    C’mon it has not been 3 degrees in this area in years, even at night, if ever. Where is your Rhonert Park? Certainly not in the San Francisco Bay Area!

    Um, I think you’ve got Centigrade readings going there. It’s really been quite warm lately.

    you check the weather before you head out to school every morning? what type of school is this? maybe you should transfer to a school that teaches you the metric system?

    i’m sorry, but in all honesty, did you step outside and NOT realize that it could not possibly be 22 degrees FARENHEIT? or that if there was a low of 3 degrees, if it were in farenheit then that would mean 29 degrees below zero? really now?

    It’s been cold in the East Bay, so cold that I’ve wished that I remembered to put on a jacket. But the car warms up quickly, and we don’t have to shovel the snow that could fall…
    We ARE so lucky in this area. Put another blanket on the bed

    Somethings I should probably address:

    Yes, the temparature is in degrees celcius. I’ve blogged about the weather before, and I think I stated it then. If I ever do this again, I’ll make sure I state degrees celcius or convert it to fahrenheit.

    Kevin: Like I said, it’s 3 degrees celcius. I’m sorry you were confused, but surely you could’ve figured out what it was? And what exactly defines “San Francisco Bay Area”? Does it start at the golden gate bridge? where does it end? I’m curious.

    Banano (really?):

    you check the weather before you head out to school every morning?

    Helps me dress appropriately. I live about 3 miles from school and walk.

    What type of school is this? maybe you should transfer to a school that teaches you the metric system?

    As far as I know, based on Google searching, Centigrade is a part of the Metric System, as is Kelvin, but Fahrenheit is not. So yes, I did go to a school that thought me the metric system. And how it makes SOOO much more sense. =)

    i’m sorry, but in all honesty, did you step outside and NOT realize that it could not possibly be 22 degrees FARENHEIT? or that if there was a low of 3 degrees, if it were in farenheit then that would mean 29 degrees below zero? really now?

    Like I said.. Centigrade, centigrade, centigrade. 3 degrees celcius is 37.4 degrees fahrenheit. Better now? Cause I couldn’t understand that last part with all the snarkiness =)
