'Winds of hell' terrorising my neighbourhood
Its january and as if on cue, it gets fecking freezing! -9 on sunday with a -16 windchill. I'll openly admit I'm not a winter person, and while I dont mind light freezing, -10 to 15 is pushing it. Think I'll take the car to work next week..
the coldest days of the year are approaching and we are at about 13°C.
These days in Italy (northern Italy mostly) are called the days of the lady blackbird (i giorni della merla). The legend tells that once the lady blackbird was white. She was freezing during these days and shee took refuge inside a chimney. The coal smoke turned she black as we see the blackbird today.
Sorry for the OT but it is a funny story
Lucky you! I won't see such temperatures until the end of March
This is the coldest winter I can remember. I rode yesterday, -3C with wind is almost too cold for me on the road. At least it was sunny. If my toes had been warm, it would've been tolerable. Wool socks+neoprene toe covers weren't enough. I need some of those warmer packs.
I woundn't dream of venturing out without my overshoes, otherwise I'll need a footbath afterwards to de-ice them...
