    We (middle GA) have been down around 60 for the last two nights.

    C to F temperature calculation that can be done in your head: double it, subject 10 percent, add 32. Thus, 22C is 72F (or 71.6F if you can do decimals in your head).

    Exactly Richard. I will love the day when we in the US joins the rest of the modern world and goes metric. (former engineer)

    Oh and more importantly, Janis, Arlo will be snuggled up to you when the temps get into the forties.

    The English method of measurement is artificial. It was based upon the size of a foot of an English king as well as multiples of certain seeds to make an ounce. Both are variable. Besides, there are 12 ounces in a troy pound while there are 16 ounces in an avoirdupois pound.
    Metric, on the other hand, is natural. A meter is 1/10,000,000 of the distance between one of the poles and the equator. Everything in the metric system is based on multiples of 10.
    1,000 millimeters = 1 meter.
    1,000 meters = 1 kilometer.
    1,000 milligrams = 1 gram.
    1,000 grams = 1 kilogram.
    1,000 milliliters = 1 liter.
    1 liter of water weighs exactly 1 kilogram.
    Water freezes at 0ºC and boils at 100ºC, instead of 32ºF and 212ºF.
    I don’t know how many life forms can survive in 100ºC temperatures.
    How about soda pop companies, which changed from a 64-ounce bottle to a 2-liter bottle in the 1970s? 2 liters equals 67.6 ounces, or 3.6 ounces more. At the time, they didn’t change the prices.

    The highest temperature ever recorded on this planet (natural weather, of course) was 56.7ºC (134ºF) and the coldest was -89.2ºC (-128.6ºF). The warmest temperature ever recorded at the South Pole was -12.3ºC (9.9ºF). Malaysia, with the highest low temperature, never got below 7.8ºC (46ºF).

    just watching the weather here and 100+ forecast everyday for the next week to week and a half. We don’t usually get any kind of cooler weather in Texas until the end of Sept.

    Well, if it’s in the 40’s I’d still be perfectly fine.

    Then again I still wear the same clothes (short sleeve shirts) year round. When the temp gets below 30 I’ll grab a jacket.

    And only in America can a discussion about temperature devolve into a political diatribe…

    10 million meters on the radius of what? Not this planet!

    I always say a miss is as good as 1.609 kilometers.

    Only in America
    can kid who’s washing cars,
    take a giant step and reach right up
    and touch the stars……

    OK, Rich, using the Imperial “system”, quick now, how many Jeroboams are there in a Hogshead?
