Posted:Here in KC missouri it's -15 deg. C. (5deg F) witha windchill considerably lower. It's too frickin cold to spin or swing. So I'm just hopin it warms up a bit.-RyanPS: I've had about 5 people grab my "Home of Poi" pen, start chuckling, and tell me that they thought it said "Home of Pot" I for some reason find it realy funny. I bet I'm the only one.

Posted:It is really weird here in western mass (as always). We had some days around 0 and had some snow for a while. Then today it was suddenly like 60. And there was just this huge thunderstorm with tons of wind, but also had some tiny hail during part of it. Sounded like the house was in the middle of a sand storm...

Posted:Hi allMinus temperatures here also. What do you think about Poi while snowboarding - is that overkill? There's not enough room to swing a cat in my apartment never mind Poi and it's bloody cold out!Merry Christmas Swinging SlinkstersKat------------------"London is a city coming down from its trip and there's going to be a lot of refugees" - Danny,Withnail & I

Posted:if you gotta live in the North and spin poi, Victoria is place to be. It's barely been below zero celcius all winter, and it's been really dry. SO for everyone who thinks Canada is a snow-covered wasteland all winter, come for a visit (the sping flowers should be up soon, and the winter flowering plum trees will be in blosom in a week or two. hehe)Earth my body, water my blood, air my breath, fore my spirit

To me it is too cold to spend much time outside. It's 20-30 degrees Ferenheit. I've never seen snow! Everyone should come to Florida in the winter! There aren't enough fire people here. If I had millions, I'd send you all plane tickets.

Posted:You know there Shawn...it's an idea but then I think of the last time one of my friends knocked me upside the head with an ice ball and the idea is just no longer entertaining.Ice in the temple...it soothes the bump while creating a concussion!

However..the thought of chaisng the friend who nailed me wihta set of these...now that is pure enjoyment!

Posted:I was just at my father's place in Watertown, NY (it's north of Toronto, Canada). It was about -20 celsius, but my parents had never seen me spin, so I did for about five minutes. My whole body was kept decently warm by the flames, except my hands! After five minutes, I coudn't feel or move my ring or little fingers. I went inside and ran lukewarm water over them, and boy did that hurt! But hey, I got to spin.Keith


Posted:hehe :)It's 38 degrees C outside, and too damned hot to twirl :))At least firetwirling can warm you up...I cant imagine twirling airconditioning units to cool me down :))BTW - if the weather is really nasty I move all the furniture around in my living room so I can twirl...doesnt anyone here twirl indoors? Sure you cant do Chasing the Sun (unless you live in a movie theatre) but you can still get some moves down...time to practice behind the back moves...I think.Josh

I am dying to go outside and start fire Poi but it is very cold outside

Although if I set myself in fire the snow would be great to out myself out

Unless you have a large mansion type apt. with high ceilings, don't try this one at home kids! Alas apartments in Japan could double as shoe boxes

Posted:Nnnyyyhhhaaaaaa! Its 37 deg C here today and too damn hot to twirl! In the evening though, many fire twirlers coverge on the local gardens and its sooooo ace, palms and fire and the green grass, there even a bar just on the border of the park, a restaurant with outside areas, music...yeehaaa. I remember 6 months ago on the old bulletin board all you northern hemisperians smiling about your fab weather whilst all us southerners froze our friggin nuts off and went through numerous light fittings by practising indoors. (Hee hee, much unashamed gloating). Bring on the heat!

...Firebreathing? Magic is only part of it my friend, diet does the rest!

Posted:Hehe, yeh me and 2 housemates were playing with a staff inside when we first moved in and smashed so many lightbulbs. The thing is, they don't just seem to smash, they completely explode and send minuscuel pieces of glass on a mission to seek out the furthest crevices of the room.. hmm, makes a cool popping noise tho!
