Re: Georgia's Warm, Right? Not Today!

Of course, taken out of context, 19 or 15 or whatever for any single, particular day might be reported as a 'record' low, and probably is for that day, but that is almost balmy compared to the actual record low temperatures for Georgia in January, which range from -8 in Atlanta to +3 in Savannah.

Doesn't sell much ad copy though...

Maybe more interesting is the high temps for the month of January (in Savannah), with the lowest being 78 and the highest being 84...the interesting thing being that 13 of those records were set in the 2000s, with the recording going back to at least 1937...

I was going to pipe in about how cold it is here in Quebec, but you win in Thunder Bay, ON. My brother went to Lakehead University there in the 1980's and he would tell me that people would leave their trucks (& cars) running all night for fear of not starting the next day!

Re: Georgia's Warm, Right? Not Today!

On the front page of the Toronto Star today there was a big article of ice boating on Toronto lakefront. Not a common event. It has to be COLD for an extended period to make usable ice.

We have had a lot of zero and sub-zero nights in the last 2 weeks. Last night was the coldest on record for the date.

Re: Georgia's Warm, Right? Not Today!

I'm a Texan, living and working as dockmaster here in Brunswick, Ga. (and I live on my boat here) Last winter was so mild, I thought I'd hang around for another. Dang! We are seeing some real winter weather here this year. Looks like 5 consecutive nights in the 20's. Had a boat arrive this afternoon from Hilton Head with snow still on the deck. Oh well, got some Texas friends with snow on their deck for a couple of days in the Kemah area. It's just one of those cold winters. It sucks, but happens every so often. Stay warm Y'all!

Its because if a cruiser stops and takes a job at a marina for over a year, well Hell freezes over!
