It Is Freaking Cold... Everywhere

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Daytona Condo Realty, 386-405-4408

It is freaking cold. It is freaking cold everywhere...

It is cold in Norilsk in the Arctic at – 53F,
it is cold in Minneapolis at 0F,
it is freaking cold in New York at 8F,
it is cold in Atlanta at 22,
it is cold in Jacksonville, FL at 33F,
it is freaking cold in Miami at 55F…

Tell me where people feel the warmest?

Miami?

-Wrong... It is in Norilsk, in the Russian Arctic.

- But it is -53 at the time of this writing? How could it be not freaking cold?

Yes, however, the temperatures there were -40 and below for the last few weeks, and they all got used to it. It was normal (their cold streak is ending and they will have temperatures from – 7 to – 20, which will feel warm)…

When you have pretty much the same weather every day for weeks, you get used to it and it is no longer freaking cold. It is normal.

But when you feel a 30 to 50-degree drop in temperature, that’s when you feel cold. It is cold, because it was much warmer before.

Paradox, but when there is no change in temperature, it is not freaking cold. It may be cold, but when there is no change, it is rather normal…

When I lived in the Arctic and after having – 40 we would go to -20, it felt Florida…

And right now it is cold in Florida.

Yes, it is freaking cold…

Everywhere…

Well, I am almost afraid to talk about how nice we have had it here in So Cal.  However, one never knows what tomorrow will bring.  I heard on the news yesterday that Minnesota was going to be -22 and Mars was only -20.  lol

I bundled up my girls and myself in oh-I-don't-know-how-many layers today that we were quite a sight, the 3 of us waddling home from school. But at least we made it without frost bites!

I am so over winter.

Hi Jon, I was laughing out loud, who should know better than you coming from a climate that sees some bitter cold in the winter. Not so cold here, in the mid 70's, sun is out and it is just beautiful.

Bob - weather stuff is always fascinating. You have a foot of snow in New york, and the city is paralyzed. I lived in the Arctic, we had a lot of snow, but it was expected, the city had the way and equipment to deal with it and it was not disruptive.

And highschool kids went to school until -40. And even when it was colder and they did not go to school, they played in the street, and younger kids, too.

William - looks like it did not affect South California. The rest of the country is bitching, and the more south they are, the lowder they bitch...

And we, Floridians, are the loudest :)

Gabe - in my Arctic days, if I would go for vacation and see open water, I would swim. Of course, now I would not swim in any open water, and not if the tempreature is less than 80F.

William - yes, it is like wheels. Have to put winter blood and then it is OK, even at - 23.
One thing for sure, the cold did nothing to your sense of humour. And as long as we can laugh, we are not going to freeze...

Lol, I saw a weather map of the US that had the country cut into 5 or 6 sections and they were all labeled F---ing Cold, F--- you mother nature, This is the f---ing south!!?!?!, etc.

It was funny to see, but not something to repost.

Marco - this is my biggest pet peeve right now. I have never ever remember not having sunshine for so long. It is raining cats and dogs every day, and for some reason we still call it Florida.
