0° centigrade today. Feels like spring. Freezing rain in the forecast though. Thank you Alaska for the brief respite. :D

Today was one of the worst days ive ever experienced.
The numbers wernt too bad, -21 C (-32 with windchill) but somehow it just seemed particularly brutal today, not sure was different. Its been this way for a couple weeks now. Maybe its all just catching up

You're a good man. Hope it wasnt a bad break. One of my brothers broke a leg and I made him very happy when I gave him a 18 inch metal ruler with the end doctored for perfect scratching. Hint hint. :lol:

It was -1F this weekend and I sat for 3 hours. Left due to boredom, not cold. Temp really doesn't matter when you have a Warmbag. It's a shame they went out of business. Love my Warmbag.
