    Aaahhh, -17, that'll put hair on your chest. Enjoy the warmth indoors. When you go outside split more wood. :)

    was at Pilsong range complex in Korea once when it was 65 below. coldest temp i've ever been exposed to, dunno what the wind chill was but it was blowing probably 10-15 mph. was a night gunnery, im not sure i've warmed up from it yet and it was like 23 years ago.

    Don't ......like......cold.
    -50::F including wind chill is the worst that I've dealt with.
    It was -20 a couple years ago for a couple days or so. Had a real tough time keeping the house warm. Too stubborn to turn on the furnace.:p

    When I lived in chicago a few years back we got to -25°F once (actual temp). The cool thing is we broke 100°F about 60 days later.

    I moved.

    Roger that
    +19° here with a 30 MPH wind. Pretty "balmy" (0 wind chill factor) :)
    Wood is drying fast, 5th day in a row with high winds, forecast thru mid week too.

    Somebody has to keep it light around here. Good grief, we are a bunch of people that burn pieces of very large weeds to heat our houses. And get looked down on by people with "furnaces". Yeah how well did that work out in the strip joint in Springfield, MA. Never heard of a wood pile exploding.

    Nah, walking the dog earlier, I was trying to convince myself that in a month's time, this 37 degrees will seem almost tropical.
    Then got to sawing and splitting a little wood and that warmed things up real fast.

    I've never been in temperatures that low (I think the coldest I've been in was maybe 17°F). It's on my bucket list though, just to see what it's like.

    I about had to carry my 80lb Lab to the woodline a bit ago, never mind going on walks. Let him out to go do his thing and he was trying to walk on no feet cause the ground was too cold.

    PFFT I say... it's only -5* out!

    Coldest I've had to be outside in was -40* around Yukon. Was driving up the ALCAN Dec 2008. Road draft tube froze on my truck and it spit over a gallon of oil out the dipstick tube before I realized it. Had to unclog the tube. Pulled my gloves off for about 15 seconds to get the hood opened and touched the core support. Burned my hand instantly... only it wasn't hot at all, that's hot cold it was!
