Cold enough for ya...?

Holy Crapoli... Windchill of -35C this morning. Kinda glad I left the boat in storage....

Pic 1 looking is looking out toward the lake from my front yard... The second one is at the far end. Apparently, the white trucks are Navy types doing some dive training under the ice near the boats in the background...

Dive training with -35 wind chill? That's on sadistic SOB who ordered that!

And to think, just a week ago, I was in my RIB in a t-shirt, shorts & bare feet!

I want to go back to Miami!!!!

Yeah, it's cold. This is Oak Street Beach and the Chicago River. Lots a people around in the summer but when it's 5 below and the wind is around 26 MPH, not a soul to be seen in the whole metrpolis!

Now that is just wrong! If man could control the weather and inflicted those kind of temperatures on anyone anywhere it would be considered "Crimes against Humanity". Tuber, you are a tough man!

Sure, we say that in our tourism brochures (along with that paragraph about our vast gopher ranches) - but you can only spin things so far.

Believe it or not, with the proper clothing (down parkas) it is easier to dress comfortably for this than the the freezing rain - sleet - slushy snow - high humidity stuff.

I love sledding but does a sled even start when itís that cold? I think I will stick close to the ocean where the boat launches stay open year around and the mountains are only an hour away. Youíre a tougher man then I.
