-28C this morning, though it's warmed up to -18C since (though windchill is still -26C >:|). Hopefully it stays this warm for a bit. Nice that we're finally getting normal temperatures though.

Christmas still had spring temperatures of 15°C, but now it dropped to 2-5°C, which is normal for this relatively warm area of Germany.

First proper 'snowstorm' today for the region. Not much to speak of really, sort of a mediocre storm. And to my legitimate surprise, people weren't really driving like complete idiots who seemingly haven't ever seen snow before. My commute was slowed somewhat, certainly more than necessary, but not to a degree that is irksome. So there's that.

-8C, -17 with windchill. Not so much a fan of the wind but otherwise it is very comfy outside! I've managed to take a couple long walks this week. I took 14590 "steps" yesterday according to my phone's pedometer which is not a useful unit of measurement for anything.

+7°C. Feels warmish.

I'm not taking any steps that I can avoid because it hurts way too much.

6 more weeks to go until calculated birth date!

Sorry to hear you've had such a rough time. I'm glad to hear the birth date is coming up, though!

The other day it was 39 at about 2pm (hottest part of the day), and by about 7pm it was 17 degrees. And god I was so happy for the cool change, but that was a pretty big cool change. I have no idea what the weather is doing here anymore.

It has snowed and some of it even kept lying.

As walking, standing, sitting and lying now all hurt equally I actually walked outside for like 5 minutes. Then I learned that that might be a bad idea because during the last weeks of pregnancy the bones are losing calcium because it goes to the baby and breaking one's bones from even slight slips is apparently really common in the last 1-2 months of pregnancy.

Oh man, good luck, Astro! I hope the end of February comes soon.

We were having temperatures like that up to a couple weeks ago, and it was really nice. This morning it was -32C (windchill of -47C).

About the same here, but we are supposed to get up to 0C. Working outside is terrible right now, especially since I left my insulated overalls at a friend's house an hour and a half away. I have a new pair arriving from Amazon tomorrow.

I was camping this past weekend. We were supposed to stay Saturday through Tuesday, but left Monday morning due to the cold. It was about -15C Monday morning with wind gusts strong enough to lift my entire hammock while I was in it. I managed to stay warm until about 6 am and then just sat in the car for an hour until my friend woke up and we could leave.
