How Cold Is It Contest....

Postby Boots » Wed Jan 17, 2018 4:21 pm

All right, since about everybody here in the U, S, and A is freezin their oysters off compared to Kiwi Russ where it's summer (good on ya mate), there oughta be a contest to see whose coldest out there, say based on the temperature today through Friday. Proof required: Picture of your thermometer device. If yours reads in Celsius, you gotta translate to Farenheit or pay Papa Tom to do it fer you. And if you just want a participation trophy, feel free to put your picture up anyway.

Since I think I am ahead by daylight to start this and stimulate some activity, I will jump out there first. I do worry if Bondo Bill shows up (AKA Nanook of the North) in Spokane country, my fritters may be fried.

EIGHT DEGREES F at 7:10AM Texas time this frosty morning!

Ok, I'm at top of the range possibly at 27 deg Celsius with high of 29. Converted it is 80 f so let's see the coldest. We can get minus 5 or 6 here at times. I'm making tomato sauce from tomatoes being picked daily, own basil and oregano also from the garden, freezing in 2 litre containers for winter.

80 F!! And we can only dream as we use a Bernzomatic torch to thaw out hydrants and hose bibs.

Ok for that, you should be sending us a picture in a Hawaiian flowerdy shirt (or the Kiwi equivalent) and juggling tomatoes.

I bet WV wins this one. We were a balmy 35° today, but it's too late to prove anything.
