I can't wait for another year of the Weather Channel's stupid, arbitrary, and hype-driven winter storm names.

I'm skipping winter this year. Moved here in July, was in the 70's for highs, mid 40's for lows, now it's high 70's, low 80's for highs and mid 50's for lows. I'm gonna like no winter this year.

Uhh... What's South Africa like? And why did you move there?

Wouldn't that be a little of a culture shock compared to Pittsburgh?

Finally broke down and turned the heat on tonight.

I had to keep opening/closing the window to control the heat last night. Got back from the game and it was 79, opened the window and got it down to 68, closed the window and it was back to the upper 70s in 2 hrs. Ended up having to do this 2 other times throughout the night.

lol, I got home today from work (my wife had an early morning and was home a few hours before me). She is dealing with late pregnancy hormones so she has been hot constantly. I walked in the house and instantly noticed that it was freezing inside. She opened up the house (no A/C, just windows), and the thermostat read 60 degrees downstairs, which is pretty darn frigid inside without the benefit of sunlight.

I know a guy (who by the way is from California / doesn't deal with cold weather well at all) who consistently keeps his apt at 60 degrees during the nice weather months.... Not only is that insane, but the electric bill he has to rack up (during the winter he puts it back up to 70 because says he likes his apt to be a break from the weather outside either way, surprised he doesn't do 80)........

Without writing a novel, it's very different and there was quite a bit of culture shock. I moved here for work and should be back in March at the latest. Just a short term assignment. There are many very cool things about being here, such as going on safari, going to an animal reserve that my wife volunteers at and playing with baby lions and tigers, the food, and the fact that 1 USD = 10 South African Rand is nice... There are also many not so good things, such as living behind walls topped by electric/razor wire fence, bars on the windows, and having to be constantly on guard. Oh and crazy drivers, the freeway is 7 lanes in each direction and is pure madness. All in all it's a good experience, nice to visit, but will be glad to leave.

My sources indicate that it's sleeting in Erie.
A little early this year?

Your source is exaggerating. It's a very cold rain, but not sleeting.

I just read Disgrace by Coetzee. That took place in Cape Town (is that a real place?), I never want to go there.
