    It's 42° F currently and forecast to be 18° F tomorrow morning. I guess it's time to find that winter coat that I haven't needed for the last few winters.

    Unfortunately our temperature has already climbed to its max today. Although I heard people coming down off the mountains from snowmobiling say it's almost t shirt material ( 32F ) at 8,000 ft, warm temperature inversion. Happens quite often hear.

    I’m just going to pick on your wording…

    Here in the more southern states ;), it’s relatively sunny and dry in northwestern Oregon but everything’s wet and soggy from recent rains.:D

    About 70 today. Expecting a cold front on New Year’s Day with each day getting a little colder until Thursday.
    Might get to 28 some nights.

    Was counting on that Global Warming this winter but no such luck.
    Here in the mid-west we have had a few record lows the past week in several areas.
    I was on the NASA website the other day and they had an article about planet Mars temperature
    has gone up 1-degree in the last couple of decades.
    One expert stated it was caused by the sun's solar activity, another source stated it was caused by
    martian cow flatulence. :)

    Almost got up to zero today. Was -28 the other morning, and didn't get above zero for four days. My dog, won't even go out. Fortunately my shop has in floor heat, and its really comfortable there. We sure could use some of those martian cows around here right about now.

    We haven't been above -20 Celsius for about a week. As low a -33 without the wind, but a high of -9 by Monday and then warming up.:)

    Warmed up a bit here now. We are at about -28 (-18 Fahrenheit), which is still cold but much warmer than he -35 (-31 Fahrenheit) we have seen over the past couple days. To add to the misery it has been a bit windy and drifting snow to go with it. Usually when we see these temps there is little wind with it which makes it much more bearable. The title of the post is right on the money (if you have a nice heated area to do your turning).

    Nice to see some fellow Canadians posting. So from the looks of the weather we should be seeing some new postings in the gallery in the near future. Haha., except from Hawaii!, I don't know how anyone could get any turning done in a place like that. :rolleyes: For more than one reason;).

    Well it's pretty darn cold in the real southern states. 10F this morning with a high of 22. That's cold around here. Our lake is about half frozen. We haven't had a winter since about 77 that was cold enough to freeze the lake for skating. Might freeze tomorrow but I would never get out of our little cove. Probably won't get over 1/2" thick in the middle if that thick. Basically I'll just stay in the shop although it's costing me a fortune to heat. Still in my old shop with a heater running all day I was lucky to get it to 50. It's already up to 62 in my new shop. I had the heat off at night so all the metal and stuff is really cold.
