How Cold Is It?

It's so cold, ice makers are warming up IN the freezer.

This little tidbit comes from the Boston Globe:

It was so cold in New Hampshire on Wednesday that workers at Laconia Ice Co. used an unlikely place to warm up -- their freezer.

Manager Tom Rudzinski said the company's freezer is kept around 15 degrees, about 30 degrees warmer than it was outside in the parking lot at midmorning.

"Our workers are saying they can go inside the warehouse to warm up." he said.

-57 in the Fairbanks area was kind of fun, except for the frozen hot water pipes, and the ice fog so thick we couldn't see across the road.

That's true. I know all about Alaska cold too. I was born in Anchorage and raised in Fairbanks.

But let me tell you something, North Dakota has a feature that makes its cold extra special: wind. I thought -50 was cold in Alaska, but try -50 windchill.

Help! I am a female who purchased a home this past fall and my hot water pipes are frozen. THe house does not have a basement and what is considered a crawl space is only large enough for a squirel to crawl under. So how do I unfreeze my pipes?
