Record Cold

02 Feb

I’ve experienced a new personal record cold temperature of -28°F (Feb. 2, 2011).  The previous record was-26°F set in February 1989.

Fortunately, there is no wind.

I guess I’m somewhat lucky in that I’ve been sick with the cold/flu and haven’t left the house in a couple of days.  But, I think if given the choice, I’d rather be healthy.

Today is Imbolc (aka Groundhog Day), the mid-point between the solstice and the equinox.  The days are getting longer and this makes me very happy!

    The worst I remember was a minus sixty-five windchill when we were moving across Kansas when I was seventeen. I don’t recall the actual temperature at the time.

      It’s warmed up to +25 now, which feel almost balmy. 🙂

      Although the temperatures have warmed up, I’m still fighting off this crud. 🙁
