At that temp, I'd be snuggled up next to the fire. You'd have to drag me out of the house!

Ouch....now that is COLD! You are speaking in F ?
I believe that at -40 it's the same in either F & C yeah it's cold.Supposed to go to a funeral tomorrow but its 2 1/2 hrs one way from home so really seriously thinking of staying home.

They are predicting a high of 6 above tomorrow and -10 below tomorrow nite in SW Wisconsin where I live...I was planning on staying inside most of the next couple of days.

After looking at your weather it doesn't seem so bad here.

That's pretty cold in either one, C or F. I'd be leery of travelling too far in such cold. It does things to machines that don't normally see extremes like that. Good luck if you travel to the funeral.

Stay warm.

Yeah, it's cold here. Hope I get long runs this week...the truck wouldn't stay warm last week. Might have to wire some more cardboard over the grill.

Friday the heater fan went. I had to drive around for two hours with no heater and the window open to keep the windshield clear.

Yes -40 is the same in C or F.

I hope that doesn't make it this far east.
Not ever paying much attention to Celcius, I never noticed how the -40 matches to F or C! I can't understand that either. They don't match on the + side of things, so it messes with my mind how they can match at the - side of things. :say_what:
