Default Winter has arrived

It's bloomin' cold here. I could see my breath this morning, the heating is on full blast and it's dark at night. Roll on Christmas

It ain't winter unless there is a minus before the temperatures. On other hand, female perception differs and anything below 18° is considered to be winter.

It's not quite negative yet but we are in single figures.

Besides, Scotland is quite warm in winter compared to other parts of Europe. It's cold for us! But I haven't got used to it yet. It has been very mild the last few weeks

I know cold, this was normal for winter when I lived in Fairbanks, Alaska.

The coldest I have been in was -22C in Glasgow. It was the coldest winter for many many years. That was in about 1996
