I would like to experience that type of cold once. After a day or two you could have it back though.

It hit -2 here last night, t-shirt weather for you.

When it gets that cold your nostrils stick together when you breathe in thru your nose.

Ha ha that reminds me of a story that was pretty common back in my sleddog racing days. There is a small village up north called Ft Yukon. Its a brutally cold place inhabited by a tough bunch of trappers and dog sled drivers. All the old timers on here will remember hearing this a time or two; we used to say that the folks in Ft Yukon didnt even put their mitts on until it hit -40! Man those guys were tough. I raced with one younger First nation guy from there, and it didnt matter how cold it was, he would just sleep for an hour or two under a tree and keep going!

I had to put a can of 134a in the AC this morning. It hit 85 yesterday. That's miserable.


I know I'm paranoid......but am I paranoid ENOUGH???

Dave thanks for making me homesick for the High Line of Northeastern Montana ha ha

I'm a firm believer that anyone who hasn't had the pleasure of temps like that or colder need to lick a flag pole or a swing set chain just once ha ha as a right of passage !

BTW it's a balmy - 19 below then add wind chill - 40

I've seen -47 F in northern Quebec, while on a winter caribou hunt ...
When riding the snowmobile, they said the wind chill was in the - triple digits ..
The tip of my nose turned black ....

We didn't wear helmet , because you couldn't shoot with it on ...
Just a fur hat and goggles ..

Funny story Allan. A couple days ago a neighbour ( who spends most of his time in AZ) looks out the window and sees one of his wifes goats swinging this big metal bowl around. He said he couldnt figure out how in the world the goat was doing it because he had his whole nose inside the bowl. He goes outside and realizes this goat had licked his water bowl! Guess it was stuck on there pretty good! good news is that goat will never get near another metal bowl.

No thanks, got down to -9 at work last night, the equipment runs 24 -7 when below 0.
Whether we need it or not.
You know it's cold when we need coat's on in a smelter lol .
Think it got up to 50 degrees, and even with 1500 degree flag running it hit 65.
It's up to 0 now.
Stay safe and healthy everyone.


Let me sugar coat this
