Thought it would be fun to see how cold it is where you live. I will start it off.

It’s so cold that I stepped out of the shop the other day with a cup of hot coffee in hand. The coffee froze so fast the ice was still warm. :)

Gonna be 75 here in Alabama today. I’d like to take this time to personally thank my anscestors for foreseeing my need to spray lacquer a week before Christmas.

I am in SC and we have been having CRAZY weather. One week it was in the teens in the morning and the highs did not get above the mid 20s. Then it went to 60s and 70s for a few days of torrential rains. Now it is misty and in the higher 40s and supposedly going to be in the 60s again I think. BUT, it is supposed to be cold for Christmas hahahaha. I hate the weather here, you never know what it is going to be!

It’s been below freezing in Arkansas, but a little warmer today. Yesterday I sparyed lacquer and I couldn’t get it to dry. Took about 3 times as long.

A couple days ago the HIGH was minus 5 degrees. But here in Minnesota we find fun things to do in even the coldest weather. At minus 25 degrees you can whip a full glass of water in the air and it will instantly freeze into a mist and none of it will hit the ground in a liquid state. I’ve done it – it works. Food coloring in the water is even more fun.

The rest of you are just sissies.

I hunted up near Delta in 58 below. It felt good when it warmed up to 25 below. At 80 below or 3 feet of snow school buses run a little late up here while an inch of snow in some of the lower 48 cities cripples them for days. You folks down south may have some fair weather but we get the northen lights up close and personal, moose in our back yards and snow up to our eyeballs (a good thing in some viewpoints).

Here in Manitoba the temperature was -27 Celsius, with a wind chill bringing it down to -43C.
I’m with you, Boardman!
However, here in the summer, it once got so hot that the corn popped right on the corncobs in the field. When the cows came out of the barn, they thought the popcorn was snow, and they all froze to death.
