An Aussie team made it here for the pond hockey tournament last week. They went from 100 degrees at home to about 5 degrees, here. I havenít heard how they faired in the tourney, but, hopefully, well.

Best,
Ted

-40 is -40 on both temp scales. And I hope we never see it here or anywhere. In 1979, while active duty, I got shipped out from 92 degrees to -15 in a single day. Frozen parts never thaw sometimes. To this day I hate cold. Never like the Middle East either with temps in the 110ís to low 120ís. Always wondered why President Jimmy Carter hated me so much sending me everywhere I did not want to go.

Iíve lived here most of my life, and have never seen -40. But, Iíve seen plenty of -25 down to about -35. If the wind isnít blowing (it usually isnít, at those temps) you are dressed for it and moving, it isnít bad, for a while.
Machines of any sort get cantankerous, however.

Living here in Vt, I seen -40 several times. My truck won't start at that temperature, mostly due to the gas turning to jelly at -40.

Its not uncommon for us to get -20 to -25 without the wind chill.

I don't mind ice fishing below 0, except you have to take extra pains to keep the beer from freezing.
