What is -44 celsius in farenheight?

I'm assuming that if you are in Canada that you are giving the degrees in celsius, right?

We are at 20 degrees F today with windchills of about 2 degrees.

I wish I was in Las Vegas right about now...

-44C is equal to about -47.2F

i feel cold just thinking about it. It's a balmy -21 here today with the wind chill (or -6F)

Yikes! You all are making me cold!
I don't think I could live in that sort of temp and survive. That's crazy!

Yeah its very cold. I have to say I love the wood heat!!! I would rather have it hot and sunny. We still go to work (unfortunately ) Our kids take the school bus - if the temp goes -32 or colder school is cancelled. Don't want them travelling out in the country roads in case the bus breaks down that would leave them frozen solid. Otherwise you try to stay in as much as you can. This is the weather when things break for no reason. Or water pipes freeze - which is what happened to my mother-in-law - No water since Sat AM. Its a good thing she is on our property and we send the kids over with water for her.
Curse my being born here I vowed that when I'm ready to retire I want to have property somewhere were it is warm to go during the winter months.

We whine about the cold here, but you folks in the prairies really get cold. Just keep stoking that wood fire and keep warm.

I think we have seen the worst of the really cold weather. 6F felt rather warm today!!! Our cats just love the wood stove-its on a brick platform which warms up too and they lay against it or on the fire rug about 2 ft away!

I feel you pain too. I don't mind the cold it's the wind chill that kills me. It has been -41 here every night with the wind. I don't open my mouth while outside and i'm constantly blinking to keep my eyes from freezing.

Our cats sprawl on the floor around the tiles where the woodstove is. You can tell when its really hot as they are further away and as it cools off they move closer... ....its -45 this morning and the afternoon its suppose to go to a balmy -34 with no end in sight.

Brrr. I have to be out all day in these temps. It's only -12 this morning though, so I can't complain.
I love the mental image of all your cats sprawled out by the fire.
