Yeah, we just dipped down to about 60F (about 16C) the other morning. BRRRRRRR! \:D
And here I am excited it is 43F after a couple weeks at -22F. :P

I'm not sure about how cold affects sound, but I know this...food smells a whole lot nicer in the cold weather. Good restauranty smells, while walking on a city street in the winter time...YUMMY!!

I know how that feels. It was in the mid 40's when I went to lunch today. Felt so warm compared to the single-digits and teens that we've been having (nothing like -22F...yikes), I almost put my convertible's top down. Seriously. \:\)

Certainly when you are in very cold weather (and I recall that Montreal winters are brutally cold), you seem much more alert, keyed up. It's almost shocking when you first encounter really cold temperatures.

Ha! In my western winter days -15 to -20 is just cold enough to keep the tourists off the slopes and allow us locals to spend much less time in lineups. -25 was perfect for those high speed full tuck runs.

-45 is Brutally cold.

Just think about driving on a ice road in a big rig to Tuktoyaktuk. You sure as hell don't want a breakdown or even worse have the big rig fall through the ice \:o .

In the early 80s I met a guy running the Alaska Highway in the winter. With danger pay he was making around 100K. That was serious cash in those days.

It is very lucrative. What I have seen on Ice Road Truckers on the History channel centers around exploring natural gas reserves in the North West Territories. Fascinating stuff.

Now I understand how bbigwrys can afford M80's strapped inside the big rig. \:D

I don’t know the physics behind it but they taught us grunts that sound carries farther, seeming louder (closer) in low temperature than warm. However I’m not sure how that would impact earbuds.

No ear buds. Sennheiser PXC-250 + LittleDot Mk I.


E = MC2 = ((2M80 + VP180 + 4QS8)/(EP800 + EP500))^(ADA1500 x D2v)
