Sheesh, you guys are going through some freaky weather. Shades of The Day After Tomorrow!
I hope there wasn't snow in New Delhi. That wouldn't be a very good sign.

Temps are plummeting like a rock. It was in the mid 50s earlier today. Now it's down to 23°F and still falling fast.

Not in New Delihi, but northern India is quite cold too. The Himalayan foothills have had a ton of snow and temps have gone negative Celsius. This happens every winter to some extent, but I believe it's been extra cold this year. Totally bizaorro.

6.5°F and steady. Perfect day for the beach!

I actually wished it would have dropped a few more degrees just to get below zero. When it's already way too cold to do much outside, a few degrees colder makes no difference.

Just remember that as cold as it is for those of us in the upper Midwestern US, this crap is what Coug calls "a brisk autumn day."
We've had -21°C twice during the Fall that just ended (that's ~-6°F to you). And yes, I start to find that cold. It's currently -16°C outside, but very windy.

For the longest time, Thomas Distributing's website has been a bare page with a single line at the top saying "Thomas Distributing is temporarily closed for the holidays. The offices and website are scheduled to reopen on Monday, January 6, 2014. Please check back with us then."

Is is so even now. They must be snowed in or something. If I remember correctly, they are somewhere in the Mid-West.

(They're the best place to buy genuine Eneloops and high-quality charger/analyzers. People have got fake Enekoops even from the Almighty God Amazon)

Completely fine. There's just a hairline fracture running along the palmrest where I normally set my left wrist. I'd take a picture but there's nothing to see. I can definitely feel it as I use the machine though.

11C here today, but that is halfway around the world from the Southland. The 50 knot winds and rain are killing me. When its not raining the wind sandblasting from the beach is terrible. 22 hours of golfers air remain, with lays that is 37 straight hours in transito.

Actually, today it gushed rain, lots of wind and in the high 30's. For me, that is much less comfortable to be out and about than when it was in the teen's with no wind and very low humidity. Wet and cold is a lot worse than just cold.

On the other hand high 30's isn't going to crack the plastic in a notebook, nor freeze a radiator, nor make roads dangerous from ice, ...

I've never experienced extreme cold like Coug. so consider the source.

I've been in Atlanta since Wednesday and everyone here thinks it's the end of the world because it got down to 7 F. It's been around 40 today, which feels warm to me.

Not sure if this is common outside the South but much below 30F and we have to trickle the water to keep the pipes intact. It has been years since I've had to do that. This year 3 days.

Though yes, cold and dry is much easier than cold and wet.

The southland of what the hell? Is golfer's air good or bad?

22 hours of air travel remain... I don't know why the Androids added golf.
From the last frame to home is three days. :-( Try using 400 on a 2 series in 40 kt winds with rain and sand.

I'm too old for this new fan dangled slang. Could someone translate this.

Something about his CIA/NSA spying with his 1 series camera with 400mm lens in a 40kt wind in the rain and sand being 3 travel days away from "home”.
