Minus 40 last night
Now that is cold. I write this just prior to heading out to feed and water and I'm not looking forward to it. When this cold the air seems to suck the air from the lungs.

Holy Hanneford is that cold! Be careful out there.

/DimSum cranks up the fireplace just reading the title to this thread

Oh my! That is awful. How do you even keep a house warm (I know warm is a relative term!)?

Hope it warms up soon!

It's been -40 here all weekend...Layers, layers, layers! Cover your face!
I know what you mean, just walking from my vehicle to a grocery store, my breath is shortened and I feel like I am having an anxiety attack since I start to panic. Sure isn't a pleasant feeling.:-(

Same sort of temps here, and the house water is frozen, GREAT.

Aw man...and here I was complaining about -10. Yikes!

Windchill for me right now is -35F. In the sun.

Actual temperature is -12F.

Warm down there then, just checked we are at -20*f actual and we are at -44*F windchill, yup that 's officially cold

Protip - Don't live in the northern areas. Most especially if these areas don't have hills.

Please dont send it our way - though it seems to be dropping by the hour here today
I think it was about 2 weeks ago that my aunt who lives in Ontario said it was 'springlike' there so a huge change
