It was cold yesterday morning.
At 5:58 a.m., I received this text from my daughter.
At 8:27 a.m., it was -28°C (-18.4°F) with a wind chill of -38°C (-36.4°F). In Red Deer, a nearby Alberta town, the thermometer dipped to -35°C (-31°F) with a wind chill of -45°C (-49°F). Notice that only a light wind of 11 km/h (6.8 mph) creates a significant wind chill.
This followed our +7°C (+44.6°F) just over a week ago.
The Science Behind Wind Chill
Although it was beautiful at lunch time with bright sunshine, blue-white snow, and a balmy temperature of -20°C (-4°F), it was a good day for hot soup and Greek salad.
Chicken soup made from boiled chicken bones with chicken meat, veggies, onion, garlic, seasonings, and fresh basil.
