Cold Enough for You?
It's been unusually cold in Seattle lately. I have to keep reminding myself that I've experienced much colder weather than this. I grew up in New England, where they actually have a season called winter. I also spent four years in North Dakota, while I was in the air force stationed at Grand Forks. We would be duty-bound to work out in the missile field, unless the temperatures got colder than 60 below zero. That was 60 below zero degree Fahrenheit. Trust me, that is pretty friggin' cold. And the wind chill sends the temp into the torture zone. We used to say that the wind didn't blow out there. It sucked, right down from the icy plains of Manitoba.
