I meant Bardot in the sixties, not in her sixties.

Ha! We laugh in the face of -14 degrees here. Last year we had -27. At the moment, it's merely a piffling -5.
Signed, Nanook.

Good one!
My daughter is in first year at a Canadian University. It's -35°C with the windchill. She can't believe how cold it is....I tried to warn her but she wanted to go to a Canadian School....I said "Look at the University of Cannes". But she wouldn't listen....

Today based on the chill index and how long I spend outdoors, I will give an appropriate album title for the weather: Seconds Out by Genesis.

____________________________________

Learned something new about bike riding in the cold weather... The KEY to keeping your hands warm is no other part of you can be cold, (or your body will shut down warm blood flow to your hands to try to warm the other part that is not dressed properly)

For years I wore sunglasses with my balaclava...big mistake cuz the cold air is all around my eyes, shutting down blood flow to my hands. After decades of fucking up, I had the idea this year to wear my ski goggles with my balaclava...and I warmed up all over...now no part of me is exposed...it's like being in a Caddilac(: Thursday morning I was out for an hour at 1F, and was fine, coulda stayed out longer.

Freak warm day today, up to 30F/-1C, heading for 37....then back to the deep freeze...

He can have a mid-winter barbie and huddle under the umbrella.
You won't catch me on a bike at this time of year!
Down to -17 here.

^ Looks like a normal snow season in the Sierra's from Kirkwood to Mammoth Mt..

We just might get some measurable rain tomorrow the 29th, after 54 + days of no precipitation at all. There are some clouds out there today, but they don't look very threatening.
Lightnin', my Russian Tortoise, is very confused about this weather. He usually is hibernating now and doesn't get up until late Feb. or early March. Then he wakes up horny and hungry. Now he's up, picks at his food and can't decide to go out or stay in. He looks very confused about it all. So I took out an add in the local paper for a play date for him and anyone who has another Russian Tortoise in town that would like some company. Poor fellow. :(

I have driven Hwy 20 when it was like that, also went to a Telecommunications building in South Lake Tahoe and backed up a driveway to the front door through a snow corridor like that, the ice was almost impossible to walk on... :smoke:

Ya, that used to be a normal winter back since I can remember here. Even Dodge Ridge Ski Resort would get that deep and that place is only 6,500ft.. Imagine if they had scheduled the Olympics for Squaw Valley this year. Boy would that be embarrassing! :oops:
