Chill Out! Zimny, Dingin, Kall, šaltas

This morning was an abnormally cold day. This is a day after Isabella asked me if we could go to the outdoor playground. This screen shot was taken around 9AM and it was still that cold. I have heard that it was as low as -13 degrees Fahrenheit (-25 degrees Celsius) last night. The leather in the car was crunchy, the LCD was moving slow, the steering was poor. Even my seat belt didn't want to unwind. It reminds me of physics class and discussing absolute zero when everything comes to a stop. Does everyone remember that?
After doing some research I found that the freezing point of Silicone grease is -40 degrees. For LCDs it is around -30. So last night we were well on our way.
