    Or a cold spell?

    Seriously? -17 degrees is nothing but a bit of cold.

    Polar vortex my arse.

    -34°C have been reported. Even Finns might reach for a Shirt at those temperatures.

    So in Siberia colder temperatures are reached regularly in winter

    In Scotland we call that Summer!

    -34 is actually quite extreme. I read -17... as the wind chill factor...

    You're thinking wimpy Celsius degrees.

    The -17 (and worse) in the midwest major cities like Chicago are in manly Fahrenheit degrees.

    Oh, and by the way, Polar Vortex just the slick name some suit at weather.com or something thought up to describe a low pressure system that comes southward into the middle region of North America from the Arctic during the winter. It's a normal phenomenon that happens at least once in most years, though some are obviously worse than others.

    Literally manly. 100 degrees was supposed to be the body temperature of a healthy young man. 0 was the freezing temp of salt water.

    Jesus Christ.
    I hope you're joking.

    100 degrees is the boiling point of water. And 0 degrees is the freeing point of water.

    The expansion is what's far more interesting.

    Damn it man!

    Don't you know what this means!

    It's CLIMATE CHANGE!!!!

    Or as AOC and her Left nut groupies likes to say, we will all be dead within 12 years if we don't raise taxes to fight it.

    Well, what will it be? Taxes or death? You can't escape either, so..........

    First of all, ATY is not Jesus Christ. Worship him if you must, but I'm just say'in.

    Secondly, 0 degrees is the Freezing point of water and not the freeing point of water.

    The freeing point of water has yet to be determined.

    I just love the sound of POLAR VORTEX. The folks at the weather channel are genius'

    It's like we are going to be sucked into some sort of unworldly other dimension.

    Scars the hell out of me.

    It is a meteorological term, not something invented by weather reporters on the telli. Monday, in my Wisconsin location, the temperature was -27F at 6 am with a windchill of -52F. Rather nippy.

    No, no, man. He's talking Fahrenheit, used mainly in the US.

    100C is 212F

    0C is 32F

    The scales agree at -40.

    F = (1.8 x C) + 32
