    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.

    Yeah, we'd be sweating with a wool blanket down here, lol. High of 75 for today.

    We've deen experiencing that same cold snap in the near north of Ontario. It was -38 Celsius here as of 9 AM. The forecast daytime high is -21 (that's a high of -6 F).

    My wife and I went out for a walk yesterday and the cold and wind were making our eyes water. I am not exaggerating when I say the tears were frozen on our cheeks. But we just put on the wool layers with a thin wind-breaking nylon later over the wool and we weren't cold at all. You just need to dress right, have a full belly, and move around to keep the blood flowing.

    Nevertheless, I'm happy not to be cold-camping out in this weather. The nights are really long at these temperatures, so that stretch of time between sundown and going to bed feels really long.

    - Martin
