Arctic blast Winter day :

Hi 14 F (-10 C)
Lo -5 F (-20.5 C)

Excessive cold watch In effect from 6:30 PM till 10:30 AM. Temperatures are likely to stay in single digits and drop into negatives overnight. Cover all exposed skin before heading outside, and limit outdoor exposure. Stay inside a heated environment and ensure appropriate insulation.

That is like my worst nightmare. Raise the temp of both high and low 30C and that would be an acceptable winter cold snap to me

That would be an average winter day here and considered a good day....

The time between when the leaves have fallen until when they start to bud, combined with lots of gloomy clouds, cold nights (usually below freezing), long lasting rainfalls with light rain that takes forever to evaporate, or alternatively snow and ice. Also a quantity of crows converging on the local park every night that makes a scene from Hitchcock's film positively relaxing by comparison.

Winter where I live, Alexandria, Louisiana, is variable. Typically there are periods of warm weather with high temperatures in the 60's and 70's, but it can quickly become colder when fronts pass through. In most years, high temperatures in the 30's occur. The average high in January is 58 F (14.5 C) and average low is 38 F (3 C). There are about 25 days with lows below freezing annually. December and January are the wettest months of the year, with over 6 inches of precipitation occurring on average.

Measurable snow has occurred 25 times since 1895 with the heaviest snowfall event occurring in February of 1960 with over 9 inches.

Winter here is just a cooler, darker version of Summer.

Winter here means one thing: hibernation.

Winter to me here in sunny Florida means more hours at work taking care of snowbirds from other states who come to avoid the cold.
The weather is beautiful here but until I'm retired can't appreciate it as much yet.
