International Falls has days in which even the daytime high does not get above zero.
Yep, actually much of the northern plains typically has several days a year in winter that do not get above '0' for highs. Often times this can happen several days in a row as well...

NYC's average high in January is 39 degrees (average low is 27 degrees). I never knew Minneapolis's average high was 13 degrees. Both 13 and 39 are too extreme for me lol.
this Thanksgiving when I come and make dinner with my daughters. I used to COMPLAIN when it was in the 60s. It is now 65 in Naples with a "cold front". For HERE it feels great compared to 80s or 90s which is what it was just 2 weeks ago.

I am really looking forward to nice CRISP Fall weather where I can wear jeans, sweatshirts, jackets, and sleep in flannel under DOWN.

I think it is pitiful that I have to be "greatful" for 60s in Florida. Damn, I am in the wrong state, in more ways than one, no matter how old I am.

OMG I'm shocked at the forecast for Thanksgiving & Black Friday:

Spoiler
Mid-40's [Note: This is very much subject to change because its 2 weeks in advance]


If the forecast does stay that way (which I highly doubt) I'll be fine as long as I don't have to go outside (which I most likely will).

The good news is after 2 days we're supposed to be back around 70 degrees for a few days.

to come to Florida for the Holidays, including the one who lived here for 4 months. I don't want to spent HOURS cooking dinner in the OVEN when it is 70 degrees. It was miserable enough in Florida WITH AC, which my daughter doesn't have in NY.

I HOPE it isnt that HOT in NY. Besides the cooking, I am really looking forward to wearing FALL CLOTHES.

60 degrees was considered HOT for Thanksgiving in the NYC area. It used to SNOW the end of November when I was a kid. To have it 70 degrees on Thanksgiving is NOT NORMAL for the NORTHEAST. That is only 10 degrees cooler than SOUTH Florida was last year.

Globaly Warming anyone?

Not that I don't believe in Global Warming, but one day does not mean anything.

Wow, 60 degrees was hot back then around this time of year. It seems like our Christmases have been 50-60 degrees for the past few years (except 2003). Its pretty normal now. I can't believe snow at the end of November was normal too, I wouldn't be surprised if we didn't get any snow until the next decade.

Times really have changed a lot.

I came from New Jersey in 2005 to retire and I can see that they do not have the snow equipment that NJ has but I can understand why .If you only get snow once in awhile and half the time it is gone by the next day why would anyone want that much equipment around to maintain and also I live in a rural area and I can understand why they close the schools ,travel some of these back rounds and you will know why . I would rather they close schools than risk lives . YES we do get alot of snow in NJ and I know from years of shoveling it . I used to tell people we got so much snow I thought I was having an affiar with my snow shovel since I spent so much time with it .Right now I think that poor shovel is lost and alone in my shed here and a quess what I don't care . lol And believe me when I say I do not miss the wind chills being below zero for a week either. I still love NJ because I lived there for 50 years and I still have lots of friends still there .I love the fresh air here and I do not complain about the winters here thats for sure . I came to VA on my honeymoon and I said I wanted to retire here and I did it . LUCKY LUCKY ME

Are you from Sussex County by any chance? Windchills below zero is extreme, especially for a week is very extreme.

That's such a nice story, I love Virginia, its so beautiful, I love the whole state. I'm glad you like it.
