And me:


I only get the ice balls on my eyelashes when it's colder than 10 below zero Fahrenheit.

Me too. I couldn't take the liner off for a good ten minutes as it was frozen to my whiskers.

I don't have any frosty face pictures readily available, so I'll just post the most recent.




EDIT:

The coldest pictures I could find.

How far up north is WI? I'm at about the 46th parallel and it never gets -10 here. It got down to +10 F a few days last winter, but that low isn't normal. Maybe the valley keeps us warm at just 150ft above sea level.

A few years ago, we had -46 deg F. The coldest was a spot about 50 miles west that hit -55 deg F. But most winters, it only gets down to about -25 or so.

You're at the same latitude as me, and 700ft elevation isn't very high. The cold must have something to do with the jetstream. Winter air imported air from Alaska I imagine.

LOL that is funny. I had the same thoughts when I first joined. It was even funnier when Frank Lee would speak up about bicycling. Picturing that handsome mug on a bicycle is priceless.

Cool

Alright, promise to keep both hands above the keyboard. Heres one of me ten years ago when I was using a wheelchair to get around. I was doing a wheelie for a photo to go along with an article that was written about me.
