Snow Snow and more Snow !!!!.....what's it like with you?

Anything on your mind that isn't about RLS/WED? It's nice to realize that there is life beyond this disease and have an opportunity to get to know our online family in a different context.

Hey we've got loads of snow here in Scotland.......it's -9 at night and -4 during the day. This is early for us, i'm wondering if it's going to be like last year?

What's it like with everyone else

Yes, we got snow here in N.Ireland also but not like you have in Scotland, even tho you are probably only about 30 miles away. Pretty early for us. Zero during the day and -4 tonight but this is unusually early.

If I recall correctly I think we in the UK had snow over Christmas last year. Its all very pretty but I am so terrified of falling ....... taking baby steps.... very carefully. :)

Here in West Virginia, USA, we had a few flakes today. It didn't stick. But is very cold and windy. I know what you mean about falling, I had a knee replacement and my other knee is bad and I have such a fear of falling. Right now, I'm having such an episode of RLS. I don't know what happened. I just took my pramipexole maybe it will stop it. I hope so.

Be careful and don't take chances with falling. Do like I'm going to do this winter, stay in when it is bad out.

Take care.

It was very mild here until about 5 days ago when it turned quite cold. We measure in Fahrenheit and it got down to 17 last night. A warm trend started today, though, and it's supposed to get to 48 on Monday.

No snow...

As a rough guide I think 32F = 0 celsius
17F = -18 celsius brr..... was it that cold in Chicago?
48F = +8 celsius.

:lol: I had -30 C (-22F) the day before I left for my sleep study, with a wind chill comparable to -40, but it warmed up and is now a balmy -21 C (-6F). Every winter we have at least one stretch of temperature below -40 (that's the same in C and F), and a few stints of below -35C (-31F). For me, -35C is the cut-off point between cold and bitterly cold; anything below -35C is bitterly cold.

Not much snow, tho. It's technically semi-arid country here :)

We've had a couple good snowstorms already this fall, and the ground is mostly covered with snow. But today is above freezing, and it's melting. I did see someone out cross country skiing on a golf course the other day, but there isn't quite enough snow for me to get the skis out.

It's been cold here, but compared to where Beth lives, it's balmy. What's weird is that 3 weeks ago, it was in the 70s. Then things changed and it's been mostly below freezing. We just never get time to adjust to anything around here.

No snow here in San Francisco. It is extremely rare to get snow here. It is cold here though, in the 30s and 40s.
