I knew she was an SAS agent.
Hertfordshire haha. And pretty much the same as yours, but with added snow.
Nice try. We’re onto you now.
I totally could be an SAS Agent. I have skills.
Haven’t had a day above 40 yet this summer, been a relatively cool summer for us.
Define cool. Like 35?
Had a foot and a half of snow on the ground since November here, Bizzy. Right now it’s a lovely sunny day with ice crystals. Still hovering around -47 with the windchill.
What do joggers do your direction this time of year?
No joggers about, Shammy - guess they must have treadmills in the house.
I’ve seen the odd person walking their dog. At these temps. you really can’t go out unles you’re bundled up in layers and keep all but your eyes well covered. A -47 windchill will freeze exposed flesh in less than 10 minutes.
@giner is clearly the hardest bastard on OA.
My sentiments exactly. All the prairie provinces are in what’s called an ‘arctic vortex’ at the moment. If the wind would knock off, we’d be around -30. That’s not so bad. Still, the forecast is for the -12 range for the weekend. Break out the pina coladas. Stay warm.
Canadians are like that weird little cousin. A lot of fun to hang out with, but sometimes you just have to shake your head in confusion.
Hey, if you’d like some infill on this topic of coldness:
Well today is 34 and I’ve just done 10km of ballast walking on the railways.
Sounds like a blast
Prefer my own exercise outside of work, but not going to lie I do like my job… paid exercise track inspections.
While we’ve had rails cracking from the cold, you must’ve had rails buckling from the heat, eh? I know the fishplates on shorter rail sections take up the expansion, but how does that work on the much longer welded sections?
