Also something I should bring up, since it looks like it's where the weather is heading right now: Ice Fog.

Seriously. Water should not be able to exist as a vapour while still being below freezing. It's unnatural. It freezes everything it comes into contact with. It's pretty much the worst.

I'm so glad I'm not going out again until the afternoon, at which point all the snow will have melted and everyone will be going to the beach.

Didn't experience that until out on the Pacific Coast this year. That was terrifying to drive through.

Saw that in the UK this last trip out. It made the countryside beautiful.

Also never mind the fact that something something kneecap cartilage etc.

This cold, but not too cold, and damp weather is murder on my bad knee.

Same. We had a brief cold snap this weekend and I couldn't even climb stairs, my damn knee hurt so bad. When did I become an old lady??

Also I should probably mention that it's going to be 31°C (feels like 40°C) all week. (that's 88°F feels like 104°F on account of the humidity)

I should check back to the first page to see what it was that I was complaining about in springtime, because this has to be far far worse...

Seriously, this heat is doing me no favours. I nodded off on the bus a couple of stops before mine, and ended up in the middle of nowhere. Cost me ~$20 in cab fare just to make it to work on time...

Also I think my AC is dying. Probably running it too hard...

FYI, if you can hail a cab, you're not in the middle of nowhere.

Well, I called one on my phone, and gave them the name of the intersection I was near, but that was after the bus took a roundabout route to a more populated area.
