Temperature conversion for idiots...like us.
It's minus 23 degrees outside. Minus 23! Are you friggin' kidding me? In case you forgot how to convert that, and if you just so happen to be one of our good, good friends south of the border, well, West, from here I suppose...-23 degree Celsius is -9.4 degree Fahrenheit. Yeah, that's what I said, -9.4 degrees Fahrenheit...and that temperature was recorded several kilometres inland from here. The temps in our backyard are easily much colder. This beach living awesome in the Spring, Summer, and Fall, but it sucks the mustard in the Winter. Someone remind me why we live here again?
This weather's been harshing us out for thirty-something hours already, with no reasonable end in sight. Forecasts don't project these crazy winds or any of this lake effect snow to stop until early Wednesday. That means another 24 hours of pretending that we're Shackleton's Expedition and that doesn't sound like something I'd pick off a menu.
