        Kool (no Pun intended) somehow I bet doing anything in -40C is not that fun. So are you a Train Engineer? (retired) Wow -10C I'd have frozen my face off lol I'd bet I'd like your stories!! Sounds very interesting!

        So how cold does it have to be so that if you throw a pan of hot water up in the air it freezes immediately??

          any colder than about -45C and some wind will freeze water like that. My son's a paramedic in a place called Kapuskasing Ontario, they were -54C with the wind chill the other night. General Motors has a cold testing facility there.

          Down to 30* at night, but sunny and a beautiful 52* by day in San Jose. That is Fahrenheit, we still haven't learned our metric system here.

            • We have two weber kettle grills (one LARGE and one small/average), the SnS and the Weber Smokey Mountain 18" smoker. We use both natural lump charcoal and KNB for smoking and measure our temps with a Maverick 733, thermopen and MK4. Favorite beer depends on what is cooking (alt answer is yes).

            At 10pm last night, it was 33* and falling slowly in Northern, VA

            At 4:30 this morning it was 53*, and almost 60* now.
