Wow... now I feel like a wimp for wearing a jacket this morning because it was "cold" at 45 degrees.

ZERO and above

I can't begin to imagine how they can get internal combustion engines to run in that temp. The best anti-freeze I can get here is good to -32
My trucks don't want to start in the low 20's

Last night we had locally -23 celsius and that is
- 9.4 Fahrenheit.
Some people's car-batteries were frozen..........

Now it up to 5 Celsius (41F) again.......

No more ice-skating anymore for a few days....

We like to think that we make up for it in the summer, they really are pretty nice, remember, it doesn't get dark here in the summer, still a helluva price to pay all winter, they can indeed be brutal. This is my 30th winter here, but I still wonder to myself, "what the hell is a pollack from Wisconsin doing up here?"LOL
