T-stat says 68.

Walking around the yard, I'm seeing new fresh growth on the apple tree and a couple of other plants.

"Nice" :D

I have said this before, I really like cold, winter, dark.... but I must say I have never experienced a temp below -20F. Probably the lowest I remember was somewhere around -15F. But I guess it probably doesnt make that much difference, once it gets below certain threshold, you just feel..... very cold :D It is just different in that you get frost bite much faster.

As of today we are under 5 hours of daylight . sun comes up around 1000 and sets around 1500.  not much chance for sun tanning.

There is a benefit to temperatures this cold. You can easily defrost your refrigerator! Put everything in the freezer outside, and the stuff from the non-freezer part of the refrigerator usually does well (about 40F) in an attached garage. Then just unplug the refrigerator, go to bed, and in the morning, just wipe the unit down, turn it back on, and in a few hours or so, put everything back in the refrigerator, and you will be good to go, and your neighbors will undoubtedly be impressed on how good the refrigerator now looks! 😺💨😀

:D That reminded me of a conversation I had with my friend a few years ago.... he asked me whether if you put your refrigerator outside when it is freezing, if it would heat up the food :D :D He was very disappointed when I answered no :D

 My son was station here at Ft Wainright.  Well once it got cold some of the soldiers family in the Base housing for what ever reason would put  meat and other frozen good out in the snow with temps hitting the  hard minuses.  Nothing wrong with that but they would  forget to mark there cache. It  snows  covers it over  and they can't find it. Comes spring thaw and warmer days now the lost is found and  very rotten and smelly.

We are down to - 5C, but it is 4 am already so it probably won't drop much more

-5C is too warm to defrost and clean refrigerator, but -5F works! Another advantage to Fahrenheit! Just kidding re the advantage!

:D Yeah I agree.... sort of applies in the summer as well :D Despite the fact I hate high temperatures I would probably still prefer 100F over 100C :D

So, fall is about to end here in about 7 hours :D

I can already say that it has been the coldest November since I began measuring in 2012. In fact also this year´s Oct was the coldest I measured. In contrast September was the warmest Sep I had and so was June. Today we are below zero the whole day, but no snow.

-34 this morning  and  high  at noon is -24.   Sun just barely hitting the top of the trees here. Some clouds but not enough to impact the temp.
 Did receive some snow  before temps slide  south towards the -30 mark

stay warm  throw another log on the fire.

Winter just began 15 minutes ago here :D

And I take back what I said a few hours ago......

.... but no snow

:D Not much, but it is snowing and because it is also freezing, it stays on the ground.

I actually was curious about this and so I took the daily normals for my city and found the warmest and coldest 90 consecutive days to see how much it deviates from the astronomical/meteorological summer/winter.

And I found that the meteorological seasons are actually pretty accurate. If the seasons here were based purely on the real temp values we would have:
Summer: Jun 4 - Sep 4
Winter: Dec 2 - Mar 2

I knew November was warm it ended 4th warmest on record which goes back to late 1800's.

From NWS North Platte:

For Valentine, the average daily mean temperature for the month of
November was 42.1 degrees which was 7.7 degrees above the normal of
34.4 degrees. November 2016 will go down as the fourth warmest
November on record, tied with the year 1913
. The average daily high
temperature for November was 57.0 degrees which was 9.3 degrees
above the normal of 47.7 degrees. The average daily low temperature
for the month was 27.3 degrees which was 6.1 degrees above the
normal of 21.2 degrees. One daily record high temperature was set
during the month of November for Valentine. On the 9th, the high in
Valentine was 76 degrees. This mark broke the record of 75 degrees
set previously in 2001
