It's noonish now, so it's a balmy 30* here.

-17????  Well then.  My 5 degrees this morning would have been a heat wave.

It's currently 41F here with wind as this front finishes moving through and while this doesn't sound too cold compared to what you guy's are reporting remember I'm at about 46' above sea level, the atmosphere is denser with higher humidity soo,,,, it's kind'a cold here too!! :59fb607672645_SmileyToothSM:

I went to Waukegan Harbor yesterday and watched them do the polar plunge. It was -10 when they hit the water.

 

I thought about doing it but the thought passed quickly. :roflmao:

We have so much salt on the road that I didn't even entertain the thought of my annual NYD ride that I normally take. -10 and salty roads. The temps I can deal with by putting on my snowmobile gear but the salt I can't deal with on the bike.

-1 as I am typing.  I keep promising myself I am going to get down to the shop and check for exploded G2 bottles. They are easier to clean up while frozen.  When I go down to the mail box this morning I will start the Wing to let it warm up and charge up the battery.  A ride would be in order but probably wait till Sunday when the temps are supposedly going to get to around 30.

 

Do need to get out today and go donate to the lottery system.  When they get to the levels they are now one can always dream.  Heck, If I were to win both the mega and the powerball I just might have to have Halfling run a raffle for some new Gold Wings.  Maybe the first I would do is order a 2018 Gold Wing Tour trike with DCT and all other options.  Maybe get 2 so Estella could have her own.  With the DCT and no clutch lever she just might be able to ride one.  My only hope for the new Wings is that Honda gets their brake problems fixed.  Of course a big problem for us old people would be trying to figure out all of the knobs and switches.

Fear not Gary, it is cold here. It is a different kind of cold than what you guys get.

We get a wet cold here, which chills you to the bone.

I had some guys from Poland working working for me for a few years and in the winter they always complained about the cold here.

Back home in Poland it was common for them to get -20 C and they said it was colder over here at +5.

We also get those damp go right into your bones cold.  Sometimes even get fog that freezes on surfaces, or the grass and trees have limb breaking ice covering them.  During the summers we also get the 100+ f days with 100% humidity.  

 

I always find it warm when in the spring the temps get up to 50 f and it feels like a heat wave but in the fall when it gets down to 50 f it feels like the artic.

 

There is actually no such thing as cold.  All thermometers are measured in degrees of heat.  So if you are on the Fahrenheit or Celsius scales a minus 30 is just Minus 30 warm.  Back at the University they could only get to within 1 degree of absolute zero.  The building while moving almost un-measurably due to students walking thru it was enough that the electrons shaking prevented getting any closer.  Bet they were glad the equipment was not in a co-ed dorm.  They would not be able to get within 19 degrees.
