I should note that as indicated by the change of the thread title, numbers are allowed. Jockeying with those numbers is not allowed. That is, attempting to use them to boast, gloat, crow and make outlandish claims. This is taking pride in things you had no hand in making or worse, taking pride in one's own incompetence.

Examples include:

"Spring arrives sooner in Maple Creek than in Point Pelee!"
"[My city] has more days above 30C than anywhere else!"
"[Your city] is colder than Alaska!"

Using it to help describe what you are currently experiencing is okay. Using temperatures to describe phenomena is okay.

The other thread will close soon.
