I think I'm staying indoors today

This is all kinds of phooey:

Alexa says the wind chill is -38C right now. Imma play Beat Saber instead.

Yeah that looks the sane option! I’ve only ever been somewhere where it was 0 degrees C. I’d be stuffed in your weather.

I don’t want to be chased down by one of your spiders, so there.

If I can even see my breath, it’s colder than I like it. Let alone -38C.

I do badly with extreme temperatures. When it freezes I struggle with my asthma. When it’s above 30°C I get dizzy (since taking Invega).

Hahaha! Skin freezes in 10-30 min! Sounds pretty f’ing cold.

I hope you have plenty of stocks to ride this one out

I’m never cold. It does get cold here…thought nothing like where you are @velociraptor

I can easily be in t shirts in the winter outside.

I was doing that back when I worked for a company with its HQ in Florida. It would be November and they were all wearing sweaters while I was rocking shorts and a tee because it felt like a cool summer day to me.

I read that in Siberia Yakutia -50C is considered normal and is the average. Coldest temp recorded there was in the -70s C.

When I got home from FL on the 24th it was -18 F, and yesterday it snowed 12 inches, and currently it’s raining at +34 F. There’s an inch of ice coating everything and I had to put my spikes on to walk the dog. It’s crazy weird weather.


That’s my car AFTER I dug it out

You know you’re in Siberia when your shadow freezes to the ground.

-31C this morning with a -40C wind chill. My kid is wanting to drive two hours to see a friend and not getting that it’s dumb to take a vehicle out in this weather for anything other than an emergency. Great way to break down and there is almost no emergency roadside assistance where she’s heading (rural area).
