    I feel your pain. Taken at 9 A.M today. Of course this doesn't include wind chill.


    Cheers,

    My Globemaster performed flawlessly in -25C back in January of 2012 in Manas, Kyrgyzstan. That was the coldest I've ever felt. We actually needed heaters to warm the engines so we could start them...It hurt to breathe!

    I know, it's crazy. I can feel icicles forming in my nose when I breathe in. My hands barely function, and it hurts my chest.

    I don't know if I should cry or laugh at people that never experienced colder than -25c.
    Minus 39c here last week and I'm not sure we had two days over -10c in the last month... I'm thinking of moving anywhere in the world where the water never turns into ice. I heard Tennessee had -20c yesterday. I was in Nashville last month and you guys don't even have "real" winter jackets. You must be freezing like crazy!

    Surprisingly, anything colder than -20c feels all the same to me. The air gets drier as it gets colder and you don't feel the cold as much. Of course my beloved SE Alt1tude didn't care one bit, it was resting against my wrist under my North Face Himalayan parka. That's about the only way to stay warm in those temperatures.

    I feel your pain, all of my friends in the States.
    Just DON'T send it over the Atlantic to us - at my age it could get serious!

    Anything colder than -20 is just cold. That's all people need to know. I just don't understand why all the schools are closed. I mean....they have heating, and there's colder places in the world that have school all year round. There's no snow or ice really.....just a few icicles here and there.

    And no.....I don't have a winter jacket. I left that in England when I moved here.

    It was the cat! My dog does that all the time...I should've taken advantage :-)

    Congrats, Oracle and Jim. Well-deserved!
