-40 is -40 clarify:

the celsius and fahrenheit scale converge at minus 40. So -40 Celsius is -40 Fahrenheit. -20 celsius is -4 fahrenheit.

Hey, the beers finally cold, eh! (Canadian)
Damn Canadian cold fronts, huh! (American)

Your reminder regarding the conversion of the two temperature systems brought back some memories.

As a youngster, prior to the conversion from the English to the metric system, I remember days, in the bitterly-cold part of winter, when temperatures hovered between
-15 degrees F and -30 degrees F. Sometimes colder.

We had many outdoor rinks in our small-town New Brunswick neighbourhood that seemed to be operating from about November to around end-March.

Do I miss it? Not really . . .

I prefer heat and golfing.

A nice blog.

Have a healthy and prosperous 2009.
