Well I'll be. It is exactly the same temp here in Big Lake Alaska this morning.

Edit: Oops! Scratch that. My temp is -11 Fahrenheit, or approx -24 Celsius which is 22 degrees colder than the avg low temp for this date.
My bad. smile.gif

The record high for this date set in 2016 is 43 F and the record low is -13 F set in 2009.

The crazy thing is, in Valdez AK, which is about 100 or so miles away as the crow flies across the Chugach Mountains. The temp is 39 F.
A difference of 50 degrees.

Ha! Shields up! cool.gif Sounds lovely. -16 F this morning, I may need a vacation. biggrin.gif The water around here is pretty hard and a bit too solid to swim in.

It's going to be sunny today here as well but the sun will only be up for a little more than 6 hours. dry.gif

After a little over a foot of snow over the past few days, the low pressure has moved out and high pressure has quickly moved in. This morning when I woke, the temperature is -32 F or -35.5 C.
BRRRRRRRR!!! blink.gif
It's a good time to stay inside and play guitar.

I'm glad we don't have temperatures that cold here! Though I guess it is indeed an excuse to stay indoors and play guitar. What will you be playing then? smile.gif

Oh I don't know. I will probably just find some backing tracks to improvise with.

Yeah, it's been a while. sad.gif I still haven't got an interface to use with this new laptop so any recording I do would have to be with my phone or vid cam I guess. We will see how it goes. No promises though.

Yeah, if you're half the player I remember you being, then you're GREAT! smile.gif

I'm trying to get back into a routine of practicing properly myself. So far I've only managed to complete 15-20 minutes of warming up before my mind start to wonder and I start noodling instead. Still, it's better than nothing smile.gif

You are too kind sir! Thanks though. I guess I am the same when it comes to noodling about. But hey that's practice too right? I have been experimenting with some altered scales lately and trying to incorporate and apply them. Basically to jazz up my soloing over some blues progressions since that is mostly what I have been playing since I joined the old guys band. biggrin.gif

-33 F now. It will be interesting to see if we reach the -40/-40 point where the temps in Fahrenheit and Celsius are the same. It is supposed to be colder tomorrow.
I may have to make a video of throwing boiling water into the air to watch it instantly turn to vapor. tongue.gif

How is life going at these temperatures? I would not expect to get my car running. I feel everything is breaking down here below -15C.

Or is it the time for a dog-sled team? ohmy.gif

I am not even going to attempt to start my truck which is parked outside. I had a snow plowing marathon of 12 hours yesterday in order to get all my clients plowed out before the deep cold set in.
Thankfully this deep cold is not supposed to linger for very long and the temps should start rising again by Friday and snow returns to the forecast.
My Jeep is parked in the garage and should be fine but wherever I go today, I will not be shutting off the engine while I am there.

This is what I saw when I woke up this morning. -39 F. I have another weather station that read -37 F and an old mercury thermometer that read -38 F. When I checked for the low temp of the day I saw that it reached -40 F at 4:25 am. Nice and cozy inside though! smile.gif

PS: I have lived in this area for 20 years, and this is as cold as I have ever seen it here. Fairbanks however is a different story. I went up there one winter and it was -45 F. -60 or colder is not that uncommon there. On the drive up, which is about 6 or 6 1/2 hrs away, the windshield started to ice over, so in that situation what you do is to block off the airflow to the radiator so that the engine coolant will retain a bit more heat as it travels through the cooling system and the heater core which heats the inside of the vehicle.
