...So cold, no lie
That my fire smoke would not rise
As soon as the smoke would try to depart
It'd be froze up harder than a landlord's heart

It was so cold here in Indiana last night - I saw a dog frozen to a fire hydrant.

It actually warmed up to about minus 10 here last night ...so I ain't complaining.

I recall reading somewhere, maybe Jack London; when your spit crackled before it hit the snow, it was less than -50f. That's if it cleared your mustache, I assume.
"To build a fire" ?

It's out of the story "To Build a Fire" (Yep, that's Jack London, nice allusion Doug) can't remember exactly what it says about when spit freezes but I know -50 F was the big deal in the story. It's only like a 10-15 minute read. I highly recommend it

It was so cold I put on a t-shirt for a few minutes Christmas morning! I'm in Florida. . . . .

(ducking quickly and sneaking away from the campfire . . . )


P.S. I'll never believe Rock sniveled. Never! Never! Never!
