Damn it's cold here

Postby MemberSince99 » Mon Jan 06, 2014 4:48 pm

Car said -13, computer said -15, and in the wind, flesh freezes in just a few minutes. I mean frostbite possible in 10 minutes exposure. (It's pretty windy on top of cold).


Yeah that's stuff you don't mess with. If you are out of the wind it's bearable, but in the wind, seriously cover up, it's really that brutal.


One of my co-workers was outside and comes in with his jacket open I was like dude are you nuts. He goes it's not that cold, I was like yeah it is.

I guess you don't want to hear about how cold we are in Houston with temps in the 20s. :-)

Be safe all those in harms way this wintry season.

Wow. That's something else. Here I think the camera would freeze up.


When I got in my car to drive home my thumbs felt like ice I could not warm them. All it takes is a few seconds in the wind, and you don't want any more. I don't know how people work outside in this.

It's 55-60 here and I'm cold :ppp

That's why I don't move. Originally I'm from Asia, so it's a lot more hot over there. When I visit in December I'm wearing short sleeves and everyone there is long sleeve/puffy jackets.

But to be fair, when I was in New York and it was cold enough it snowed a little, winds blowing 20-30mph

I didn't feel it was that big of a difference, after a certain point it's just dang cold

Are you in Dallas and it was -43? Seriously? That would HAVE to be a record low.
