I'm impressed with my first winter here in Victoria...I haven't worn gloves or even a winter jacket...it's a nice +3 right now. :)

It was a bit on the warm side at our race this past weekend. I think it was in the mid 70's.

When I lived in Morro Bay, it seemed to always almost be 65*.

Its been kind of chilly in los olivos at night. Los Olivos has an extreme (haha-extreme) climate- it gets pretty cold in the winter/spring months and hot as hell in summer (easily of 100* many days). Many days last year, at school the fields were all covered with frost that looked like 2" of snow .

It is currently: -23°C here in Montreal.

It will be -1 over the weekend. Holy jeebus, sometimes I hate Canadian winters.
Good luck with that! I complained a little bit today, since it was only in the mid 60s (F). However, it was nice and sunny all day...

It was 70 here today, but it is 45 now, a nice dip in the hot tub with the mrs' was alright.

It wa 36 degrees C here today with 88% humidity. 40 degrees is expected within weeks. I'd rather ride in the cold than this temperature...

it's 12c here, but very humid. We're at sea level. It's far worse than the 3c in Granada, and I'd say worse than 5c below in Tahoe. No matter how much clothing you wear you still freeze your tail off. It's pretty unmotivating.

I hate you. It is currently 27 here in virginia and the dirt jumps are still wet from snow.

It's been around 0 F in Missoula for almost two weeks. I think a few nights ago it got down to around -15 F. I am starting to hate the cold.

Its been the same here in Kalispell but we have had the inversion thing going on for about 2-3 weeks. The only time I have seen the sun was when we went skiing and got above the inversion on Saturday. The fog has been so bad for the last 2-3 weeks too. Here is a pic from 830am. Its stays dark outside pretty much all day because of the darn inversion. Well, at least its snowing. Its so cold that the snow is like ice.

See the fog and the inversion. Its looked like this now for 3 weeks; dark and foggy. I need two houses. One here and one in Cali or AZ.

It has actually been sunny here the last couple days, but Missoula had the inversion/fog going on for all of November, I think I saw the sun once the whole month. I agree about having 2 houses for sure. Is the skiing good up there? We need some more snow down here.

The snow is awesome. We skied BM Saturday and hiked a little. We got a few freshys about knee deep. Its snowing pretty good right now. Its snowing about an 1" and hour. I hope to hit BM on Sat.

We've been peeing on or dirtjumps in the morning before we can add dirt to them. Nothing beats an organic thaw.

I tend to agree, I hate cold weather. There is no way I could live anywhere but sunny So Cal. For starters, I would not be happy living somewhere that has seasonal riding. I love that we can ride and race year round in So Cal.

is it really -23? it doesn't seem that cold.
oh man, that reminds me, i was going for a ride last week with those one size fits all gloves, it was probably like-5 or something but very windy and with a headwind my hands lost all their heat so fast i found myself stopping every 40seconds in the lee of some structure to warm my hands up.
the moral of the story: get good gloves
