LFWX,
I'm not too far from you, on the other side of I-75.
My low is 8.9F on the Jan 3rd as well.

New low for the year this morning at -16.7 F.  In an average year, I have nine days with below zero lows for the entire month of January.  In the first thirteen days this month, I have had ten days with lows below zero.  I think the weather is trying to even out from last year's abnormally high temperatures.

I feel like a piker reporting +28F as our coldest temperature, but here in the SF South Bay Area, it rarely gets below 32F so it is an 'event' for us.  Found 1/8 inch ice on a puddle this morning and frost everywhere.  Tonight is forecast to be +26F for another hard freeze.

With our seasonal weather, and lack of desire to visit the snow in the Sierra Mountains, there's no parka to be had .. generally because there's no need :)

p.s. It's why we live in California to enjoy a Mediterranean climate .. we get to go see the snow if we wish, not have it delivered whether we want it or not :)  None of the towns/cities around the SF Bay Area have snow removal equipment .. it snows maybe once every 20 years or so for sprinkle on the grounds up to 500ft, and hard freezes are very seldom here in the South Bay.
Y'all just keep your snow .. we like it only in the Sierra Nevada Mountains where it provides our drinking water during melt season.

Let's see, I moved from that "Mediterranean climate" in San Jose to western Nevada where we enjoy that SIERRA snow. In fact, have about an inch on the ground right now. It will probably be gone in a week or so until the next storm comes in. Lake Tahoe, which is just west of us (10 air miles) will probably have snow until late June or July this year. We are way ahead of our normal snowfall in the SIERRA but we can use all we can get for use next summer. As Ken mentioned, snowfall is necessary for water supplies all around the area.

Last night (early this morning) we had our lowest temperature of 2013. It was 0.0. Brrrrr.....

The 13th gave me a 10.7 - half a degree warmer than my coldest JAN low in 2011. 2011 also saw 3 consecutive days in Feb with sub-zero temps and blew all the records out of the book - mine and "official".

New low here in the Carson Valley this morning: -1.9F.

Side question: how do you display the degree symbol in these forums? I'm probably missing something very simple...

25F as of 07:43 yesterday (14Jan), also just recorded my lowest dew point of 3F at 05:09 this morning.  Kinda nippy for the east valley, but hopefully tomorrow we'll start to climb out of this cold snap.

Another way is to open the Character Map. It has all manner of special characters that you can copy and paste into forums, emails, Word docs etc.

On XP machines, it's usually somewhere under Start/All Programs/Accessories. I dragged mine to the Quick Launch bar for quicker access.

21 in NW Peoria, AZ on 1/14.

We also had at least 8 hours of temps below freezing on the 14th, which is unheard of around here. Busted an irrigation pipe because of it.

By the way, contrast that with our highest temp last year of 118 on August 8th; that's a 97 degree swing !

Dropping fast here this evening with light winds, deep snow and clear skies.
We don't usually much do very low temperatures, as the North Sea is only ten miles away mostly downhill - cold air just flows away and often later in the night a sort of reverse sea-breeze sets up with water warmed air coming back over the top.

The last two nights got down below -10C and the minimum was last night at -11.6C
Wind and cloud plus snow flurries have arrived today and it's just below freezing so that may have been the lowest from this spell.

That is great info - THANKS!

And, for VISTA systems the Character Map can be found at "%SystemRoot%\system32\charmap.exe".

I like placing the char map in the Quick Launch area idea as it's quick and easy and also let's you select all of the other special characters and it also shows you the shortcut keys for that particular character. I've used both of these methods in years gone by but this old mind is slipping a bit...

Thanks again for both replies. I'm sure they will help not only me but many others on this forum.

Here in MN,  we're predicted to have a 50 degree drop in 24 hours,  so I'm sure I'll have something new to report tomorrow!
