Kelvin works like celsius but starts at the lowest temperature of - 273 degrees ( I think it has been a while since I read about it). so 273 kelvin = 0 celsius so its 273 + 30 = 303 kelvin.

Back on topic about the weather.

Here in Iceland the winter weather has sucked with very little snow and ice and alot of cold and rain which sucks in my opinion.

There is no such thing as fiction. Given that the multiple-universe quantum theory is correct then all events that happen in ´´fiction´´ actually happen in some other universe.

Rain in the winter does suck indeed.

I'm not against it in warm summer however.

Holy Crap it's Thurnder Snowing in Baltimore MD, USA. There is lighting and thunder during a snow storm. The flashes are awesome because of it reflecing off the snow and the thunder sounds allot different because of the accoustics of the snow in the air. The thunder is not a loud but more rumbly and crackling. Plus there is already over 24" on the ground and it's supposed to snow all day today. It's truely a Snowpocalypes.

I spent 1 hour yesterday evening shoving the snow of the roof on the House I live in. Thats one great way of spending a Friday evening...

I dont mind winter, I just would have hoped my dad could have told me that a bit earlier in the week...
Winter is ok as long as its cold, and as long as its cold (preferably not warmer then -5 degrees) its nice with snow too. It feels somewhat refreshing to have a real winter once again, its been white here since before Xmas
Its when it gets a few degrees above 0 and the whole world starts to look like a slush puppy its sad
