The temperature this morning is 17 below zero (-27.2 C) with wind gusting to thirty-five miles per hour.
That puts the wind chill near minus fifty-five (-48.3 C).
This temperature is a concern, but doesn't freak us out. We have experienced actual fifty-five below in Alaska with winds stronger. We had an Alaskan thermometer with the bottom number -55. One winter the mercury dropped into the bowl - I don't know how cold it was but it was at least lower than -55. It is all relative.
Wow, sounds like the Polar Vortex is in town! My sympathies. And you're right -- it's all balmy compared to that Alaskan temperature!ReplyDelete
We are right now going back to a nice 54 this morning and moving up to the 70s. This is for the coming week. I'll be able to put the citrus trees out again.ReplyDelete
