And I thought 9 Celsius was cold..

The scary thing is that -20/-30 is below zero regardless of which scale you use

Here in winter it's only 9 celsius at worst. But we have, like, 40 in summer, so equivalent exchange I guess.

fuck your warm weather


around here cold means when you step outside it hurts to breathe and you have to wear two layers of insulated pants or your legs fall off and exposing any skin even for a just a few seconds leaves it aching numb

nah, below zero Fahrenheit isn't particularly cold, and below zero Celsius is still t-shirt weather

-20/-30 is a bit chilly though, yea

-40 or below is what "cold" really means



also anything above 75F/25C is blistering hot and I have no idea how anyone tolerates it


but when it gets up to 9 Celsius it's time to start laying out in a hammock in the sun
it's cozy

I've made this post before, haven't I...

brb I have to go thaw my pipes
idiot plumber put them too close to the outside wall

we also have this thing where we shape a hot-tub type thing out of snow

it's pretty nifty, kind of a cold-tub


jumping in a snowbank after spending some time in an actual hot-tub is nice too

of course, we only do these things when it's warm out

No, I spend most of my time huddled up in a tiny room with a blanket and a heat source.

...uh.... I guess eskimos do that too, huh... hm...


.... maybe?

I'm mostly surrounded by ski bums, though.

It's nice, really. It makes you treasure whatever even remotely cool thing you get your hands on.

And the beach.. Ah sweetness.

The coldest temperature I've ever experienced was -50ish. Even in a city that was used to temps of -40, the news still did silly things like putting a water bottle on the sidewalk and going to commercial break, then showing how much it had frozen when they came back.

I remember when the chinook winds would blow in, and a -30C day would become a -10C day, and people would start stripping off their (outermost) jackets... funny how quickly I acclimated to warmer weather, now I grumble about +30F.
