    Precisely why I have no desire to live in Alaska. Visit in the summer maybe, but not live there. Too cold! On the plus side, today we were 20 degrees warmer than we were 2 days ago, so things are more back to normal. Of course by the weekend we're supposed to be in the 40's. Only in Illinois can you have a 53 degree (Fahrenheit) temperature swing in 7 days!

    Cue Martha and the Vandellas singing "Heat Wave".

    Above 0F today; first time in a while. Didn't bother to zip the coat. Supposed to reach 30deg in a few days - it will spoil us.

    They are probably used equally.

    I saw 50+ degrees swing in less than 16 hours here just a few days ago.

    Just saw on Yahoopravda--for any of you folks up there who want to get your name in the record books right up there with Sir Hillary, why don't you go climb Niagra Falls? That's wild.

    Yes, Alaska too. 7 hours even sometimes, certainly in a day or so it can go from -30 to +20 once or twice in an average winter.

    I've heard the old 'if you don't like the weather here, just wait 5 mins. and it'll change' all over the world, in several languages.

    Isn't there some place on earth with the world's least-changing weather? That'd be terrible for photography! One regret is interior AK doesn't get much violent weather, unlike the great storms I experienced in Michigan, central Russia, and Missouri... The palouse was weather-lame, too.

    I think in the US, the least changing weather is Hawai'i.

    I'm pretty sure we had some drastic changes in a day in Massachusetts, too, but I can't find evidence (google seems to return many results that are missing the parameters you type in these days).

    I take my hat off to you sir, I can't even imagine -30.

    it ended up hitting 20F today, I was so happy to see the proverbial mercury rise that high.

    A Fire Weather Watch has been announced by the NWS, starting Sunday. A Santa Ana condition is forming, so we will have dry, warmer-than-average weather, and a likelihood of strong winds. This has been a very dry fall/winter so far, and there's been only a bit of light frost. It's pleasant, but some storms would be most welcome.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santa_Ana_winds




    The Raymond Chandler quote about "Meek little wives..." is very well known around here

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santa_A...opular_culture

    Myself, I like the Santa Ana winds. They stir things up, knock down the dead palm fronds and tree branches, and make the air crystal clear. Well, clear except if the ground's dry, as it is now, which means lots of dust. And if the fires start, then there's all the smoke. But other times it makes it crystal clear...
    I like the winds anyway. Most people just tell me, "Yeah, but you're weird." Which is pretty much their stock answer for just about anything I say, so...
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.
