    There is no last cookout of the season! We barbecue year round!

    The coldest I've ever been in involved the mercury of the thermometer being entirely down in the bulb. No idea how cold it was actually. Northern Alberta though and not representative of the weather for the majority of the population. This past winter was nice. Mostly rain.

    Canadians could not hack Texas! With our last summer, they would have been roasted well done.

    I grew up in Nebraska where it would get -15 degrees F or -20. I moved to California and everyone was a whimp regarding cold weather. Now I am one of those wimps. If I go outside in the winter and it's 40 degrees I start shivering.

    i constantly mock chileans too. their 'winter' (at least in santiago) is two months and consists of seeing snow on the andes in the distance, a bit of rain, but mostly still sunny weather. it can go down to 2-3°C at night but during the day it's still between 14 and 20C and yet they walk around all bundled up with coats, hats and gloves...

    Aye, like so!

    I grew up in Southern California where the weather is considered to be almost perfect year-around, and I lived in hot-ass Mississippi and Florida for a number of years. So yeah, I don't do so well in the Wintertime. The city I live in gets cold snaps in the winter, and even though I'm a lot more used to them now, I'm still a wimp ready to go cowering in a corner with a space heater. I don't know how I'd make it further north.

    This sounds like Sydney (except for the snow in the distance - ours is an 8 hour drive) and you've never heard more complaining about the cold anywhere in the world. You'd think we were all living in the Ice Age we bitch so much about "winter". But I know people from Europe and North America who say Sydney is one of the coldest places to live because most houses are built for the summer weather and we don't usually have central heating, fireplaces etc. So in winter we all bundle up as if we're heading for the Antarctic. Melbourne gets really cold in winter (well, cold for us) but they're equipped for it and everywhere you go is toasty warm inside.

    My magnolia is currently in full bloom one month earlier than usual. Gorgeous!

    I live in the Mojave Desert, not far from Death Valley. Holy Shitballs. The difference between the summer and wintertime is astronomical. The summer we melt. It gets to 117F and feels hotter. We have no smog coverage so the sun is literally beating down on you. Your outside shit better be done by 10am. Winters here can go down to single didgets and even colder the closer you get to the Sierra Nevada mountains.

    I'm an L.A. girl and when I moved here because my Hubby got transferred to NAWS, China Lake, it was a total culture shock.

    The coldest temps I've ever been in were in Canada at Mont Tremblant. A few times over the years when I've been there I've seen -25F, even lower at the summit with the wind. It's brutal. Your nostrils freeze to your nose column.

    -25? Wuss. Try -45 or -50

    I grew up with that.

    I'll trade a Canadian winter for a Houston Summer... at least asses don't melt (or fry on leather seats) in Canada. My friend's been telling me for years that I'm going to have to move to Alaska to live through menopause as it is.
