  • too cold

    woke up this morning to -42 enteristing fact at that temp it does not matter if it is F or C, anyway it is too cold to heat the shop to run the lathe so I guess I will sit here and state at this stupid box (monitor)

    ok sorry for the rant I just got bored

      Snowed a bit this morning and now after three weeks of way above normal that cold air from Alaska is sliding down our way. Thanks Matt.

              Here in the Piedmont of North Carolina it was a balmy 46F today. Tomorrow's estimated temp is low 60's with sunny skies in the forecast. I might have to turn off the single plug-in type radiator I have in my garage/shop lest it gets too warm. I should say though that in the summertime while the temps never get too bad the humidity is often over 90 percent.

                now they say it is -25 F and 69% humidity but in the summer it rarly hits 90 F but when it does the humidity is at about 15% sometimes less, when firefighting last summer (on a small forest fire) it was 88 F and 7% humidity very scarry for fires trees will explode if a spark hits them

                  Hope you don't have a mercury thermometer. IIRC, mercury freezes around -40* too.

                  Actually, we were just talking about this the other day... things freeze pretty darn quick at that temp. I recall us kids making some pretty awesome spitsicles in the schoolyard. What I don't recall is what happens when you take a leak... freezes instantly too, right?

                        I went to collage in North Dakota back then (15 years ago) it was more misirable there then it was here, I hate wind

                        Dr Rob never had ice cicles when taking a leak though the shrivel factor is exstream (hard not to pee on your nuts) but at around -50 F you can spit and here it shatter when it hits the ground, you just have to try to keep your lips from freezing

                          We set a new record highin Minneapolis today. 52F the last time I heard the temp on the radio, old record was 50 set in 1925. Was there global warming in 1925 too?

                            About a week ago it was -15F and my shop was 70F thanks to a pellet stove and a propain space heater. Don't want my Bridgeport mill or my Monarch lathe to rust. The humidity inside was 20 percent. Located in Bath, Michigan Pat

                              Up in the 60*s in Des Moines. Lots of sun shine.

                              Nice to drive around at lunch time with the window rolled down.

                              Supposed to be nice again tomorrow.
