    but you've seen our infrastructure Beth. Our roads are hell at -6. All the side streets aren't gritted so they are like deathtraps right now.

    Well according to my car temperature gauge it's -6 here too. And no amount of lawyers roasting on an open fire are gonna keep me warm.

    I should think you'd scream and throw ice and your government officials until they did something about your road conditions then.

    LOL

    Over in the JC they call this extreme posting.

    Yup. I'm posting from my car while sitting on the roof rack, legs through the sunroof steering with my little toe [raises eyebrow] Like...extreme. Man.

    well, I work in Local government so I know how pointless it is too complain about it. It will have melted by the time they pull their finger out. [face_plain]

    -6 is normal winter temperature here. It was -15 around Christmas Eve. In Russia there is a village where the temperature gets to around -40. -17 is considered a good temperature for a stroll. :D

    Weird. Did you know -40 is -40 on both scales? :)

    But yeah, it doesn't get THAT cold here.

    I'm sat in the office by a radiator and the sun's streaming through the window next to me. It's like sitting in a greenhouse.

    Honestly, if you're cold put a jumper on! That's what my mum always says. And if you're still cold then turn the heating up. Simple!

    It's too hot to work... I wish I was cooler...!

    Now that's the British worker for ya! :)

    I didn't know that, Beth.
    I tried to learn how to convert one into another, but I can't remember all the math.

    No jumper to put on... and the heating is controlled from the basement by boiler-monkeys

    coversion formula

    Tc = (5/9)*(Tf-32)


    Tf = (9/5)*Tc+32

    where Tc is temp in Celcius and Tf is Temp in Far'

    Poodu, you need a little nip of absinthe to warm you up...!

    I had some on New Year's Eve too and everything became really blurred really quickly. I don't even remember the stroke of midnight...

    ... but then again, I don't remember being cold either! :D

    Thanks, Chet.
    Now I'll have to do the maths by myself instead of making an American proud s/he is smarter than me - s/he can convert Fahrenheit into Celsius. ;)
