Hey, outstanding, CBF. I'm on my sixth year, so keep it going. Pretty soon you'll see people smoking and just think, "Oh, gross."

Yeah, that happened last night. Still love the smell, though.

I had a lovely day at Disneyland. I wish Mr. K had been up to going with me, but I'm OK going on my own. It was a little more crowded than I had hoped, and I only went on a few rides, and a lot of rides/attractions/areas were closed for renovations, but I had fun people-watching and wandering around. The weather was perfect, mid 70's, and no traffic either there or back (I live about 50 miles away). All in all a good day.

Heh, it's snowing pretty hard at the moment. Assuming we get a foot today, that'll make well over 40" in a week.

I have a set of Pirelli winter tires on the cahr. I know they're good to -45 as I checked them with an anti freeze tester.

I'm pretty sure those numbers represent wind chill factor not temperature. I'll betcha the temps won't go below -10 F.

Wind chill is usually recorded separately along with a wind speed.



It has been colder on occasion in Miami, FL that Fairbanks AK in January.

Fairbanks is one place where ya gotta love extremes. It can reach 100°F in summer, then hit -60° in winter. Not many places on the planet see that kind of temp range.
