The 2 digital weather stations in our house go 'off scale' at -30. Last Friday afternoon they both got there and have stayed off since.
Temperatures have been around -40 or worse each night and in the -32 to -35 range during the day. Apparently on Sunday the Edmonton International Airport was the second coldest place on the planet reporting in at -46C - only some small town in Siberia was colder.
Yesterday at 3:31 this exciting thing happened -
It was thrilling while it lasted, but by 4:30 we were back to an 'OF'display (I think that is supposed to mean 'off scale' although I do have a few more 'creative' translations).
Thankfully the weather is suppose to break today and temperatures are actually supposed to ROCKET back up to close to freezing within the next couple days.
The weather station display did come back on line about 6:00am and had moved up to -27.8 by 7:30. I may have to take off a layer of polar fleece!!!
