    Default It's pretty cold outside right now!

    Good morning all, I jus thought I would share this with you. I woke up this mornign to find that for the second time this week it is -50degrees Celcius outside, that translates to -64.4 Fahrenheit. THat is with the wind chill factor but it is -42 without. Incidentally the Fahrenheit and Celsius scales meet up at -40 and then differ again. It's cold out thats for sure.

    Holy doodle! That's seriously chilly! Just a suggestion, if I may - don't choose tonight for your "night out with only a wool blanket" outing.

    -30c near Ottawa and the goats have frosty beards this morning. Milking at these temps is no fun!

    Second night in a row down to -30F here. My pipes froze under the house, luckily not burst, but I had to spend a half hour with the hand torch to get them thawed.

    Wow that is about as cold as it gets, it was 6 F this morning for me. For some reason I was expecting someone from California to post how it was 45 and brutishly cold haha

    Plus 41 F and rain here in the "frozen north." I just love it when I can send messages like this to relatives in who give me grief for moving here - I've seen the time when it was 40 degrees warmer in this corner of Alaska that it was in Oklahoma. Love it.

    We had a beautiful, calm -4*F this a.m. with a high of only 8*F here on the Pocono plateau. I had to check out a job site down in the flatlands along the Lehigh River all morning. Although it made it up to a balmy 13*F, the wind kicked up to 11-15 mph. It was a might chilly even in my Carhartt bibs and "go to hell" hat.

    HA! I remember hiking around Unalaska island the first week of February 1991 in a T-shirt and a flannel when my folks were riding out temps in the low teens and lots of snow. That was a short-lived warm spell, though.
