This winter it's getting too warm and the ice falls are not safe to climb, or at least not as fun. But apparently it's warm only on this side of the Alps: last weekend I went cross-country skiing in Engadine and here is what I saw on my car thermometer as soon as I entered the valley:


I think it's the lowest temperature I ever experienced while not doing iceclimbing or mountaineering.

PS: Pardon the blurriness of the picture, but the display is in the middle of the dashboard, right in the middle of the steering wheel, and I took it with my cellphone camera while driving on a windy road.

Is it indoor temperature? Did you have your car condition on?

No, that was the outside temperature

It was -38C in Edmonton two weeks ago. -46C if you include the wind chill factor.

Props to the talented group at the Edmonton .NET User Group for putting up with the frozen north. I guess that's why Donald Belcham calls himself the igloo coder.

Wow, that's very cold, especially if you think that Edmonton is a "normal" city, not a mountain/ski village. In Milano we rarely go behind -5°C (and never happened this winter)
