- Nov 30, 2007Brrr... it was -30c here last night Sarah, so that tea really smells
good right now! And the fire is very soothing and warming. I just
came in from outside so I'll have to put on my fuzzy slippers and
cozy up a little closer to it.
And yes, 17c above zero is approximately 62F above zero. I also know
that that the 2 scales meet at approximately -40 c or F.
We were frighteningly close to that last night, and then I forgot to
unplug my car this morning and I dragged my block heater cord all
the way to work under my car. I do it at least once a winter!
Luckily it still works as it's going to be just as frosty tonight.
Keep the kettle on and the fire blazing:)
I'll be coming back for a few more steaming cups!
PS for a real treat, try boiling apple juice with cinnamon, cardomom
and nutmeg. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...
