Bob,
I have a co-worker who is at our plant there. He is from Florida and is not a happy camper. I talked with him yesterday and thought he was full of bull when he told me how cold it was. Stay Warm
Lou

What a bunch of wimps! :-) At least you can bundle up.

Try hunting, in full camo, in the middle of the Mojave desert (California) in 125+ (52+C) during the summer.
Now that’s hell!

Yup, that is cold Bob. When I moved to North Pole, Alaska (near Fairbanks), 1975, that winter the thermometer, which was slightly warmed near my window, got down to 55 below F, as low as it went, and never moved for 2 weeks. Best we could tell, it was about -65 degrees or colder out (temperture inversion). We were in the lowest spot in the area, hence the coldest spot. I had a space heater in the garage, hooked to the central baseboard heating system, and it ran constantly, but still the garage went below freezing, and I had to move the potatoes stored in boxes down to the basement. Thanksgiving came, and I always cook my turkeys on a grill. I was using charcoal, and lighted the charcoal in the grill in the garage, and when it got going, opened the garage door and rolled it out (-:

The coldest I was ever in was minus 40 in Gander Nfld.

Not fun. We didn’t spend much time outside.
