Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for February 20, 2011
Nate says, "Man, it's cold!" Teddy says, "The thermometer at my house said twenty degrees this morning!" Nate says, "Hooo! And up here it's even colder!" Francis says, "Yeah! Because of the wind!" Teddy says, "These gusts have got to be at least thirty miles per hour!" Nate says, "What makes the windchill factors minus ten!" Francis says, "Wait, what?" Nate says, "The windchill factor, Fancis! You subtract the wind speed from the temperature!" Francis says, "actually, calculating the windchill factor isn't that simple. There's a complex mathematical formula." Francis says, "If 'T' means temperature and 'V' means wind velocity, the formula goes: 3.74 + 0.6215T-35.7 (v0.16) + 0.4275 (V 0.16)..." Boomp! Yaaaaaaaaa Nate says, "I don't mind the windchill, but I can't stand a blowhard." Teddy says, "I feel warmer already!"
What! twenty degrees! That’s hot! (then again I spent quite some time in Minnesota)
