    It is currently 27-below. The weather network says it feels like 39-below. Tomorrow, we're looking at 28-below.

    I know wind-chill is a scientific formula that weathermen just love to trot out . . . but I call BS on anyone who says they can feel the difference in 27-below and 39-below.

    At some point (high and low), these differences have got to be meaningless to the body.

    You are mostly correct. Once it's the mercury falls to 10-below and lower, cold is just cold. However, there is a temperature at which you risk the danger of your skin freezing on contact with the wind. Check out this link.

    LOL ... a few hundred kilometres, that's all. Beef is closer to the Arctic Circle than I am.

    I think the weather is the only reason I won't be defecting to Canada. Couldn't take it.

    It's expected to snow on the mountains by Thursday, but it's still fleece weather at lower elevations. I'm happy.

    You might like B.C., Cadet. Far more moderate temps there ... just fear of The Big One and reactionary waves from tsunamis.

    I hope y'all (BTE, KY) who are freaking out at Beef and Flash remember that they're speaking in celsius, not fahrenheit. These aren't Antarctic temps here (-27 C does NOT = -27 F). ... Fucken Canucks, foolin' y'all. :D

    And I solved the barometric-head-pressure phenomenon by doing the obvious: moving to SoCal. Only 3 seasons here to worry about: scorching (June-Aug), hot (Mar-May, Sept-Nov) and mild-to-warm (Dec-Feb).
