It wouldn’t work where I grew up, either. They’d find your frozen half eaten carcass.

I have been in Canada during the winter months, my snot freezing to my face. It's true what people say, Britain goes tits up every time it snows.
She battled through in every kind of tribulation,
She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.

That recent snow was just a minor inconvenience and hopefully there will be no more
I have noticed that since last night it has been very warm indeed for the time of year

- 52 F in Fairbanks Alaska back in the early 80's. It wasn't bad as long as I was moving, but standing still for any length of time things got a bit nippy.

Used to go out for long walks in Anchorage in the winter back in the 1970's early 80's, when -30 to -35 wasn't unusual.

But we haven't had anything I'd call real cold up here since the winter of 1988-89

The Pacific was in the warm phase of the PDO for the past while ....may be shifting to the cool phase but the Arctic is so warm Alaska might not see those low temps again anywhere near the coast.

I live at Pape and Danforth. For some reason the TWN app on the iPhone uses the island airport as the closest station. Close enough for horseshoes and handgrenades, I guess. Definitely more accurate for me than Pearson, which is up on the tundra to the north.

Anyway, this is where I heading today...

This is the winter we were supposed to get last year. I think I have shoveled more snow in the last week than I did all of last year.

-22 feels like -30 and LOOKS like -40 just now

....big bay window behind headboard is nice most of the year....have to sleep with a hood when it's chilly....sucks the heat out and north facing so no incoming sun.

I did NOT enjoy the cold house temps in Scotland. :roll: This place is drafty and uneven...tropical in my main workspace - combination of location and screens...hopefully new place a bit more even tho once more master over the garage but south facing this time, :thumbup:

Today's high was -8f/-22c. Is also very windy, and this morning featured a period of light snow with accumulation. That's uncommon at such low temperatures.
I also forgot to mention last Saturday when it was liquid raining and in the teens out. Something like -9 celcius! I think it happened in Boston,Ma once at 12f/-11c. Finding the record for the coldest rain(freezing rain) record online is not readily easy for me. I'd like to know what the record is for that.

Meanwhile, right now in Oymyakon, eastern Russia, it's -67°C, and women are posting selfies featuring their frozen eyelashes ...

That would be -88 fahrenheit. :shock:
It reminded me of this movie scene, at 1:32 in particular. :mrgreen:

I walked around my yard and out front recently when it was -21f/-29c. I threw some boiling water in the air too, that was pretty cool. :)
