Did you guess that Buffalo NY gets colder weather than Iceland? People are constantly shocked when they hear that; Iceland has to be cold right? Well I live in Buffalo and I went on my honeymoon in iceland.
It gets cold there.
The summers are in the 50s and it gets into the 30s during the winter. Nobody has tan lines or swimsuits there, and everyone dresses up in moderate gear. It is cold, but not noteworthy; My hometown gets much colder. The snow is just horrible; Rather than inches, it comes down to feet. The ice is constantly a problem. It frequently warms up to wear the snow melts and leaves a wet residue. Then the evening gets cold and freezes, however what is worse is that if snow follows there is a bunch of hidden black ice. It can be super dangerous driving in the area. I remember driving my automobile to University at Buffalo and the weather was -22 degrees. That was a official Wintertide day for us! You just learn how to dress in our area. You can have no exposed skin, but have you seen the movie Fargo where the guy has his hood wrapped so narrow around his face he is just a nose? Well that is how you dress in our area. You can’t go outside without a scarf, gloves and a hat. You need thermal gear and waterproof boots. I wouldn’t have it any other way though. I cannot imagine how people deal with 100 degree heat. It is much easier to moderate up than cool down.
