|DIPPITY DO FOR THE JET STREAM|
.. We checked the email and morning news and discovered that the jet stream had wiggled itself quite a few degrees to the west. The thermometer outside the window was lower than anticipated and we checked with our friends at NOAA.
.. Did it again! Lowest in the nation. COLD DAMN !! We can't wait to get to the Post Office and the grocery store to check the range of local variation. Our number was -33°F.
.. There have already been some reports of frost bite on cheeks, noses, ears, and lips. So far no one has tried to lick the flag pole at the senior center.
°F. Flesh will freeze in less than five minutes in those conditions. Any bits exposed around the helmet, scarf, balaclava, or gloves will get a blast. It happens with surprising regularity. At current temperatures the results are even worse. (Like; around - 60°F.)
|WIND CHILL CHART|
.. Some visitors from the lowlands have the plugs as well. Some even arrive for a visit and leave the vehicle plugged in for three or four days or even more. This behavior allows the oil on the cylinder walls and in the head to drain down. Dry starts scour parts. Oh well.
.. Time to get back in bed and see if the day starts better the next time we arise. Perhaps right after breakfast.
