I’m now fully winter weather acclimated.

    Got up at 7 AM today, looked at the thermometer and said to my wife “it’s warming up, it’s only minus 4”. :poke:

    Now the wind chill is still -22, but yesterday morning, the real outside temperature was minus 19F and the wind chill was something like -50.

    Informal survey. I’ve lived in climates with winter weather for most of my 60+ years.

    When the temperature went below zero everyone expressed that as minus X. All of a sudden this year, all the so-called TV meteorologists now are referring to below zero temperatures as a “negative X”. It’s that way on all the local stations.

    I’m just wondering if it is the same across the country? Did they all go to a drunken convention and decide they will all say “negative” from now on?

    Only 7 more days and I'll be in Vegas. The trouble is all the snow & cold will still be here when we get back.

    Lived in Cleveland, Ohio all my life. They still say minus. Maybe someone decided negative is politically correct. It will always be minus for me. Lots of time they say below 0. Like the wind chill is 40 below zero.

    I haven't even left yet, but I just realized I'm only 7 days from returning to the "negative" degree weather.

    Around here (New Hampshire), I usually hear it as # below. "Minus 5" would be "5 below".

    Well, Joe, you know, weather extremes always are harder on seniors.

    Oh, Joe, hey, btw, I'll wave at you this weekend. Just tune in to the Waste Management Phoenix Open and I'll find you. I'll be on 16 for a while, though I usually prefer to hang out over by 6 and 14 'cause there aren't as many idiots and you can smell In-N-Out over there wafting in from FLR and Scottsdale.

    Unless it's a day I'm out playing Grayhawk or wherever, of course.

    Stay warm, my friend!!

    Tell us what you'll be wearing, K2V. I'll look for you unless I'm out yakking for reds and specks.
