Ahhhhhh.  Thanks.  aka 'long pants' weather.

F = (2*C) + 30 is a fair enough approximation

Not this year.   At least we know where the cold weather went.

That's cold in freedom units too: -13F

The problem is that converting bullshiat numbers to decimals smacks of the metric system, which is for commies.

RolandTGunner: F=(C x 9/5) + 32.


for approximate temps dealing with weather I just remember the 10s in C, since they correspond to "bins" of 18 F.  Good enough for quick conversion, only have to remember 5 numbers.  Same formula, just makes it all whole numbers.

C  vs F
0  = 32
10 = 50
20 = 68
30 = 86
40 = 104

How are the vineyards fairing?
That could be kinda bad.

Do polar bears speak Spanish?
They can ride their melting ice flows to there and will freeze again.
 
2021-01-12 1:19:03 PM  

RolandTGunner: F=(C x 9/5) + 32.


Or just 25 units colder than the temperature needed to freeze H2O.

Fun Fact:  -41 degrees is where the scales line up.

-41 degrees F is also -41 C

In Edmonton we call that 'Thursday'.

/actually this year we've had a very mild winter but now I've jinxed it so we're sure to get a deep freeze next week

The only one I can remember is -40C = -40F.

It really is easier to calculate, otherwise.

Hell, with my memory, it's easier for me to derive.

My sister moved from Seville, which records summer temps over 100 for months, to the coast, where it's not freezing, but close enough to be Goldilocks hell.

Their houses are built properly, which helps both in cold and heat.

Though I wonder if they use electricity for heating, that's gonna suck.

Meh. I'm sure it makes you die faster or whatever, but once you're under about -10F it all feels the same.

is that where Winter is this year?
We got some snow right before christmas, since then it has been rain.

Same on the East Coast.. I've been able to go hiking pretty much every weekend so far this winter. Still no serious snow on the forecast.

When I lived there many years ago, we had portable butane heaters you'd move from room to room.  They has an open ceramic burner system protected by a simple wire cage, which made things interesting when the cat would back up to it to warm up a bit.

Kelvin is based on Centigrade, they just have a different 0.

0 is absolute in Kelvin, 0 is freezing in Celcius.

You get from Celcius to Kelvin by subtracting 273.15, or the other way around.

Yeah you knew, but not everyone realizes that Kelvin is based on Celcius.
