My older daughter were both up late again, chatting about the frigid temperatures we’ve been having. She joked about a comment she read on her phone’s weather app, so I just had to check mine.
This was screen capped at just past 1:30am. -32C wit the wind chill bringing it down to -40C.
Also known as -25.6F/-40F
My daughter had been chatting with an international group of people and the temperatures had come up. After she told them what we were at, someone from the US responded with a “oh, for a minute there, I thought you mean Fahrenheit!” They were rather shocked to find out that -40 is the same for both. 😀
That whole “potentially life threatening” warning, though. Yikes!
As I am writing this, The Weather Network app has us at -31C/-45C (-23.8F/-49F), while my Accuweather app on my phone has us warmed up to -30C/-42C (-22F/-43.6F).
Our expected high of -27C isn’t supposed to happen until late this afternoon, so it was bundle up time to do the morning rounds.
I made sure to have nice, warm water for the kitties!
I am concerned about Creamsicle Jr.
I noticed something wrong with is left eye a few days ago. He won’t let me near him, though, so zooming in with my phone’s camera is the best I can do to get a better look.
I can’t tell if it’s a scratch over his eye, or if his eye is leaking.
Unfortunately, there’s not much we can do about it. We can’t catch him to even get a closer look, never mind putting him in a carrier and driving him to a vet.
Poor thing. As if putting up with these temperatures wasn’t bad enough on its own. 😦
