Many Are Cold, but Few Are Frozen

It's -40?? right now!


On my way to work this morning, it seemed colder than usual. My thighs began to sting from the cold during the short walk from the bus stop to my office, and I could feel my toes going numb even though I'm wearing my warmest boots.

I was right. It's -40°, and tonight it will fall to -42°.

I remember my science teacher in high school telling us that at -40°, Fahrenheit and Celsius are the same. I never thought I'd experience it in person. Hopefully this will be a once-in-a-lifetime event.
