    Just reading that temp makes me freeze! Your beads really portray deeeep freeeeze cold. Brrrrr. I won’t tell you what the temperature is here today but you could be enjoying it too. Just become a Snow Bird. We get lots of them in the winter.

    Elaine do you know what your celcius temperature is in farenheit? I am thinking freezing our farenheit 32 degrees is 0 celcius. Does anybody know?
    Would that make her temperature -13 degrees below 0 farenheit?

    I never could keep that straight in school.

    Any way you look at it you are cold where you are. BBBBrrrrrr. (I’m sorry but I just had my oven on earlier and it got up to 76 degrees in the house and I had to turn on the air conditioner so Ted could go to sleep. It really isn’t that hot outside but it is 66 degrees farenheit.)

    According to our Environment Canada web site, it is minus 25 degrees Fahrenheit before the added wind chill…with wind chill, it is supposed to be minus 51 degrees.
    I don’t think in Fahrenheit any more so I really don’t know how it is figured out. And the wind chill factor is calculated in a very strange way…I don’t understand it at all. But I think that after it hits a certain negative temperature, it’s so blasted cold that it really doesn’t matter what the number is!! Most of Canada is in the deep freeze right now!!!

    Only one time in Ohio did the temperature reach like 45 below 0 farenheit with the wind chill factor. It froze up the electric companies sub station that provided our little burg with electricity.
    The firemen went out door to door at 12am.
    to wake people and make sure they were alright. Duh! If you were in bed you were warm and the house didn’t cool off right away. I woke my daughter she got mad and said mom I am sleeping and warm. LOL

    Brrr, Elaine! Your pick really matches the sub zero temperatures! Very pretty, but COLD!

    To convert degrees C to degrees F, take the temp * 1.8, then add 32 to get the degrees in F (OK, my second profession is science geek!). So, basically, that’s -59 degrees F with the wind chill. Shall we just say cold??

    I think anything below zero feels the same – you just freeze faster! And don’t breathe through your nose – you’ll form ice crystals and your nose will snap shut!

    I had a slumber party way back in my younger days in northern MN. We were listening to the radio, and the announcer said it was -72 with the wind chill. Well, we were curious: so we all through our coats, hats, and mittens on over our pj’s and walked around the block just to see what it felt like!

    Little Round Chick says:

    OMG Sue PJ aren’t that warm. Any one suffer frost bite? Weren’t we all crazy at that age? I think the coldest weather I ever experienced was -24 degrees. The coldest temp experienced here in San Diego was 29 degrees and my bougainvillea got seriously nipped on the outer fringes.

    Cotopaxi Chickie Sue says:

    LRC, we walked fast! With long wool coats, and of course warm boots! Yes, we were all crazy back then!

    I’m surprised your bougainvillea survived at 29 degrees!

    Elaine, what a beautiful pick for such nasty temps! Love this! :D

    Sue, I knew you would know how to convert those temps for us!!! Thanks! 8)

    Isn’t it amazing the things we did when we were “young Chicks” and thought nothing of it — today we think “what the ???? were we thinking — or were we” LOL
