Da fuq? I recommend an induced coma until the weather warms up.
Hey _________, when it's that cold, your silly temperature 🌡 scale from down under deviates from the expected variance between each individual degree.


Hey Ron, I hope you are wearing thermal underwear!!!

I don't know what that means! Nevertheless, it's interesting (and uncomfortable) that it's +38C here today.

Yeah, we talk about dressing for it--but there's only so much you can do. Wrangler makes thinsulate lined jeans, and they're a huge help for the minute from from home to the car, and from the the car to work.

But I'm looking forward to spring. Weather folks say it won't likely go down below -45...so i guess I'm happy for that.

As an aside: my car is always equipped with RefrigiWare Iron-Tuff® hooded Coveralls, a -40 rated sleeping bag system, thermal insulation pads, chemical hand, body and foot warmers, face coverings, a couple of days of food and liquid (carried to and from the car to keep it liquid/fresh--and not frozen), -40 rated snow boots, a few sets of thermal base layers (polyester--not cotton), a battery booster that doubles as a USB power bank, candles, three pairs of thermal mitts, a few days of all my required meds, and a Kevlar bivy. And I never go anywhere in the winter with less than 3/4 of a tank of gas.

That's in case 1) I get stuck in the car or 2) we have a local bad power outage.

I take the cold seriously.

Ah, yes, -40C, where the C and F scale agree.

Never went out in the car when I lived in Montana without a survival kit in the trunk. Much like yours but not quite so well equipped. Walking to class mornings at -30f was not unusual.

AlbertaTime knows his warm clothes; kind of a matter of life or death up in the Great White North.

I love my wool and silk long underwear. High today here will be +30F; I think I may survive.

Christmas was in the 70's. It was quite warm and humid. Then it rained for two days and then this:

That's bunny boot weather if you need to be outside for any length of time. Those cold winds coming down from Alberta and Saskatchewan chased me out of the North Dakota/Montana oilfields after one winter.

Heh, toques are great for Mike Nesmith and southern Alberta--and that's a classy toque you're showing...

...but when not in my Refridgiware gear, this is what I wear. Way goofier looking than a toque--but much warmer, and the bottom flaps connect to protect the chin. I keep one with me and, like, two more in the car, eh. (For southerners, the big furry bit is over the forehead, with the dangles for the ears).

55F at almost midnight. This is when the rest of the country is pissed at Florida.

Yep, that's what people focusing on the maximum temperature don't understand. The nights are heavenly.

Heavenly...like the summers here :-) That's one common reason we put up with the winters.

I recall one time living in Chicago; the temp dropped down to around -20 degrees, perhaps a bit more. I was driving home from work in my vintage Cadillac Coupe de Ville, on which the only thing that worked was the heater. Thus, with a 500 CID engine, at highway speed, the Caddy's heater couldn't keep up with the cold.

By the time I got home, I was so cold that when I went into my house, I grabbed a bottle of Remy Martin and poured myself a stiff shot--mind you, I had read of folks who drank a swill of cognac to ward off the cold, but this was the first time I'd done so. After a few sips, I stopped shaking, and fired up a decent Nicaraguan cigar and relaxed.

I have never been that cold before or since.

It’s a balmy 78F degrees currently in Daytona. Getting ready to head out for a quick fishing trip. Our two weeks of winter show up at the end of January or beginning of February.
