    Jees, and I'm complaining about 25 above zero.
    Guess I should count myself lucky.

    Is -34 C the same as -34 F?

    I thought someone told me that once to gets below zero the temps were the same.

    Keep warm!

    Got to -21.1 last night. Right now it's -10.5. Don't know what the wind chill is. It's one of those "got your candles in your car?" days. :eek:

    Sunday it was -37C, which is about the same -37F.

    Tonight it warmed up to -17C, which is about 0 F.

    Pellet stove, woodstove and cookstove make it very cozy! Going to the neighbors to cut some Spruce tommorow - at his logging landing he has some dry Spruce and Pine he said I could have - I'll give him a bottle of Rye. Burning Birch and Poplar now - no problem.

    It's 8deg F here in Midwest City with some windchill. Saturday it was 79deg F here. It's supposed to warm up 30deg today & get up into the 50s later in the week with lows in the 30s. They say that if you don't like the weather here in Oklahoma, stick around a little while & it'll change. :)
