"Good" weather for staying in bed, when things freeze over like that...

There were a couple of winters around here back in the 1960s, when water froze in buckets left outside, and outside toilets had the water frozen in their cisterns -- though that seems pretty mild still, when compared to some of the ice storms seen in some northern hemisphere locales..

**********************************************************************

I've noticed this past week, news programmes comparing America's big freeze with Antarctica  --  as if, for some strange reason, those ignorant TV hacks (including some news readers down here..) seem to think that Antarctica should be the coldest place on Earth  !?!

Some relevant facts :
* It's currently Summer in the southern hemisphere --  including Antarctica;
* The Arctic is colder than Antarctica, on average, across the years;
*  The yearly average temp for Antarctica is a balmy --20s, compared with the Arctic being closer to --30s;
*   There are plenty of places with much colder winters than Antarctica --  not only the northern reaches of Russia, Greenland, Sweden, Canada, Alaska, and the Himalaya and Karakoram --  but also the US states of Wyoming, Montana, Colorado and Utah all have had lower winter records..
*   The suspected absolute minimum temperatures recorded in recent years have been in some of the severe storms that hit Mount Everest during the 1980s and '90s --  when, not only was the ambient temp on the mountain down below minus50°Celsius, but the added 'chill factor' from the winds from those storms was another minus50°C --  giving an effective/apparent temp. down well below minus 100°C  !!!

We did too Nicko. We would bring clothes in from the outside line stiff with icicles hanging off them. Days later even when they had been inside you could still snap the icicles off.....Oh happy days. Laughing
