How cold IS it?

It is minus -43°C which converts to -45.4°F.



There is NO way to look stylish in this kind of cold.

And The Mistress must go to work.

What is the coldest temperature you Bitches have experienced?

  2. I can not imagine such a freeze. During my childhood in the woods some winters reached -25°C, but I have no memory of this, and only know it, because my father and his colleagues had to go out under these conditions.

    You poor thing ! You need an "Icon Mirror Shiny" !

  3. It is cold here on the east coast. So cold, that when I went to write my name in the snow, it froze mid stream. It is about 3 here today, but in my mink it feels like like Rio.

  4. Oh, is it cold, you say?

    I'm afraid I didn't hear you over the roar of the AC.

  5. At 22:00 the car thermometer said the outside temperature was a balmy 6c that must be like shorts and t-shirt weather for you. At -43°C my heart would stop beating.

  6. BITCHES: The temperature dropped even further at one point today. It’s evened out now at minus 40.

    I applied Vaseline to my face when I left the house. Tip of the day: supposedly, petroleum jelly helps prevent frostbite.

    Fortunately, now that I’m home, the furnace is doing its best but I’m getting under a wooly blanket now and will catch up with you tomorrow.

    One good thing about this weather... NO ONE IS WEARING CROCS!

  7. Is "wooly blanket" a euphemism?

  10. The coldest I've ever experienced was -30F (-40F with the wind chill) during a once in a century blizzard event on the East Coast! The city shut down for almost the whole week! I learned that my body was built for sunshine & warm weather! Winter blizzards suck!

    I'm with LX, low to mid 70s F here, which is a rare occurrence thanks to El Nino, keeping the freezes up at the northern states & your part of North America. Sorry. Hopefully, it gets warmer for y'all soon & you aren't forced to take a dog sled team to work--that's a lot of dogs to pick up after.

  11. OK. Now I feel a bit bad for moaning-in your Valentine's post-about having a flurry of snow.

    I doubt whether I've experienced anything much below -5 C. It's against the law for the temperature to drop below that in the UK as it brings the entire country to a stand still!

    1. Oh, but it did Mr Devine! -27ºC Scotland, December 1995. And in 2010 Devon recorded temperatures of -19ºC.... which I will never forget!

    2. Oh, yes. I do recall the 2010 cold snap that wasn't so much a snap as a drawn out, protracted torture. Bah! Let's not have that again.

    3. We are in the midst of another chilly snap, naturally my heating has broken down; I have men in my garage.

  12. after arriving in minnesota, i was slapped into reality with some horrific winters. i recall -40 below wind chills & my shock that people chose to live in that kind of hell. i also did the, "throw a cup of boiling water into the cold air & it evaporates trick."
