Shanghai, Liverpool, Las Vegas and of course...Singapore.

I don't have a favourite town. I guess I have still to find the place where I want to settle.

Ocean. What's more, in Manhattan, because of the way the city was built
you get the worse corridor effect from the Hudson River to East River
once the windstorms start and it's the windchill that does you in
rather than the cold. New York is cold and humid, you really feel it to
your bones. Last year the -30C days were more than 10 days at least. I
saw the temperature below 0 in Fahrenheit, it was unbearable. For three
days my school was out because of the cold, because the windchill was
lethal to people with weak lungs (asthmatics etc.) New York gets colder
than Reykjavik, not on average but in minimum temperature.

I'm hoping it won't be as cold this year but the way it's going it's not promising.


Hate to reply to such an old post but posts about cold weather are something a Swede just can't let go . Seeing that the cold record of NYC is -18C, I believe you messed up the F->C conversion a bit, zero F correspont to roughly -15 C, not -30. Free from school? We would have been free the whole winter if we also had such temp limits. -25C/-15F was the limit of having PE outdoors iirc, no limit on school as such

But it's true Reykjavik is a pretty warm place.

Same here - -35C with sometimes close schools up to grade 12 if they have trouble starting the school busses and a dump of 3' or more of snow overnight will close them for the morning or sometimes all day  while they clear the roads. but thats it. I think the kids had 2 snow days last winter and no cold days.
