    It's so cold here that I almost had to put on a hoodie while out fixing a fence in my front acreage. Must be 55 out there... Burrrrrrrrr, so cold.

    you couldn't pay me to live in missouri, or one of those midwestern states that have extreme weather like that. i'll stick with my bland and boring san francisco bay area weather.

    I love all the " hurr durr .....8 below ain't sheeeott pussy, been 26 below here all week ....derp"

    Go outside in your underwear and you'll be dead in under an hour regardless. 8 below is cold whether you are used to colder or not.

    Christ, that's crazy. How can it be that cold in Missouri? I'm right next to you in Oklahoma and the coldest we got is 12 degrees. 20 degrees below freezing. No matter the weather, I'm always outdoors. I have donkeys that I rescue and raise. Biggest issue is keeping their water from freezing. I do use an electrical heating element but a lot of people don't. I don't know how cows and horses make it through the winter in Montana or Canada. It gets ridiculously cold up there. At least donkeys grow a second coat of fur for the winter. Bears are smart, they just hibernate through this shit.

    That's -8 Fahrenheit, -22 Celsius. Got to remember that folks outside the U.S. use the metric system.

    Yup

    Was going to say I look forward to -8 so I can get back in my shorts outside.

    True story I still just wear my shorts when going back and forth to the gym if it is warmer than -10 and I've worn shorts while cycling on those fat tire bikes at -20 in Lake Louise.

    -30 range is where I start to think things are painfully cold.

    the -8 is with windchill. the wind is what kills here. monday it is expected to be -3 not including the wind. my dad told me "this is nothing, i grew up in this weather in New York" then i watched him trying and failing to open my truck for like 20 minutes

    even he got frustrated
