    I thought it was somewhat ridiculous to put sun icons to depict what was going on with the 8 hours of sunlight per day currently here in north Dakota. I'd be all types of triggered by those icons representing the 20 minutes of actual light or whatever you guys are getting around the solstice

    I was in Rochester MN for the -68° prior to wind chill last year and I can tell you it was the worst thing I have ever experienced. Ts and Ps!

    Are you sure that wasn’t including wind chill (or 68° below freezing i.e. -36°)? The record low for the state of Minnesota is -60°.

    The nice thing about here is there’s no wind. 5 mph is considered a windy day. It’s also a desert so not much moisture in the air.

    what was the date? I was there last year during a cold snap. When I walked from the motel to my rental car (maybe ten spaces from the entrance) , I got in and realized my hair was frozen after the standard towel dry post shower. It was wild, like a helmet.

    then this happened 200 yards from the rental car return. BFF37594-6C5C-453F-930A-23F9CACA7912.jpeg

    I bought a big pack of charmin ultra soft and I’m pretty sure some of the 4-packs inside are red charmin.

    Got a brand new 2020 vehicle last week and turned down the model with the navigation because waze with apple CarPlay is better but apparently that’s the model you needed with the Sirius xm radio built in. So I have to get some bullshit adaptor now I guess for satellite radio. Pulling off the lot and only seeing phone, am, fm made me wanna cry. Still rattled. And yes I just assumed every vehicle is satellite radio equipped these days because it’s the year 2020.

    Coldest I have ever been in was -69 (nice). It was Y2K and we went up to our cabin for a few days. Was around zero when we went up which is fine but then the bottom dropped out unexpectedly. Got down to the -60s on multiple thermometers on NYE and it wasnt like we werent gonna shoot off the fireworks that my dad bought (we dont get to shoot off fireworks on 4th of July because its too light out so NYE is all we got). I was 10, my sister was 12 and I remember my parents only letting us go out for a few minutes at a time. Lighters dont work at those temps so torches had to do to set off the fireworks. I think when it warmed up to -40 we decided to make the 20 mile trek on snowmachine back to where we depart from. No frostbite thankfully. I remember being excited to see if there were actually any repercussions from the Y2K thing since we were off the grid during it.

    That’s incredible. It gets cold here in Chicago but the sustained cold y’all get is insane and I don’t know how you guys do the winter solstice darkness tbh.

    I’ve decided after years of ignoring soccer I’d give it a chance. I happened on a #Watford match the other day on tv and stopped because I remembered that Elton John owned them at one point. They beat #Manchester United, who I’ve always assumed to be a top tier team. Sweet. Elton, good, cool moose. These are my guys.
    Well, I just looked up the standings and realized I’d chosen a team about to get kicked out for sucking. So goes fandom, I guess.

    Fav Christmas movie? Easily Home Alone for me.

    Also, I think it has to be Christmas focused. Die Hard doesn't count as a Christmas movie just because it happens to take place in late December.

    I shouldn't have said "I think it has to be Christmas focused" when I meant "it has to be Christmas focused, so Die Hard doesn't count."
