Feels like -23

But actually it is only -16, which is cold enough when walking to work, as we both did today. There is something here in Canada called the ‘Felt air temperature’  which is a measure of how quickly the average body will lose heat due to the actual temperature, wind speed, air density and relative humidity. So tomorrow I am going to use the hood come balaclava thing that Hannah got me from Christmas last year. This weekend we’re forecast +10 or so, all the snow will be gone.

I have been thinking about when we return to the UK with all of our electrical goods, which run on 120V at 60Hz on the UK 240V 50Hz system. I was contemplating trying to build a fairly industrial transformer and having a few power points that would serve those item, however I have just discovered that one can purchase these items:

240V 50Hz to 120V 60Hz from Maplins

One reply on “Feels like -23”

The temperature on our trip to Honiton today ranged from 0 at the Norway Inn (very apt) to 7 in other places. There was no consistency. It warmed up during the day and leveled off at 6 across the board – a tad warmer than Sudbury!
We could buy Brendan one of those transformers for Christmas but the postage would be astronomic, so we will wait to you come back.
