Didn't know this was possible...

I didn't know this was possible but apparently it's so cold outside that the road salt has lost its ability to melt ice! Brrrrrrr!

Did I say that I hate the cold? Day two of a three day deep freeze. -19 but in the -30s with the windchill. Lot's of accidents due to black ice and people not realizing the road salt is no longer effective.

Don't want to step outside. Fortunately I've arranged to work from home today.

Nasty.

Fahrenheit defined zero on his temperature scale as the coldest he could get with salt and ice. Below that and salt can't melt ice.

There should be a law against it getting that cold =P

Ow wow - I won't moan about feeling cold again ... and it is actually above freezing here (and I am still moaning)

Sending thermal socks!

*hugs* Gawd. Cold enough to freeze salt... I'm glad you're not out on the roads today.

Thanks. I'm very glad too.

Good grief, I've never experienced such temperatures, thank goodness. In contrast, our temperatures hit 42oC yesterday and the bitumen on the roads was softening.

Good weather to just stay indoors I think.
