    Re: 3 Positive Things Part 5

    1 - tomorrow at 10:30PM CST will mark 15 years since I stepped off the plane in Winnipeg on the last day of a 2 week record breaking cold spell.

    2 - It had warmed up a bit when I arrived from the recorded low of -39C for a Jan 30th

    3 - Funny coincidence the forecast for that precise time tomorrow is the exact same temperature as when I got here -35C

    BONUS: No mosquitos spotted for quite some time

    @GaryQ I'm not really sure #1&2, then #2&3 are "positives" given that the temp is so negative!

    You’re an engineer you know basic math 2 minuses is a plus

    The real positive of it all is... it could and colder
    Taking a shot at trying to be an optimist... not sure it’ll work though. There’s more reality and less pretty frozen rainbows in pessimism.

    LOL My mistake I was too busy with the equation [my temp] + [your temp] = [still too damn cold]

    Yes come to the light side, Padawan. There's a tub of frozen ice cream at the end of every frozen rainbow.

    Yup and the relative differential between the 2 temps is getting awfully close to the boiling point of water this morning

    Yes come to the light side, Padawan. There's a tub of frozen ice cream at the end of every frozen rainbow.
    I tried... then woke up, looked at the current weather...
    saw the magical number where ['Merican dang cold] = [International standard cold]
    And that ice cream is probably bland vanilla

    Fun fact: There is only 2 minutes elapsed between the 2 screenshots wind speed went from 0 to 4mph from the west
    making the wind chill factor go from -40 to -55F in that short time.

    Positive notes in all this:

    1 - Record breaking day... Looks like we beat the old record from 2004 of -39C (YA-friggen-HOO!)
    2 - Didn't have to convert this one to F for Daniel since it's that magical number where C = F
    3 - I don't have to go out today

    Is everything still working? Is mail being delivered? They are not delivering mail in a number of U.S. states today due to Canadian/Arctic chill.

    Daniel: Have the states caught a little bit of a chil?

    FMN: Get that HSB of yours to get that heat working! That’s getting pretty close to cruel and unusual punishment

    Yes. They shut down school buses but regular buses, trains, planes, automobiles, and Canada Post are working.

    Yep, no rain or snow or bla bla bla will stop the mailman from moving... (except a lockout or a strike)
