Wow! That’s the complete opposite of frying eggs on a sidewalk. :laughing: I imagine even if you managed to get a forkful of hot food from a hot pan, it would be frozen by the time it reached your mouth. Crunchy tomato soup anyone? :slightly_smiling_face:

Love the video @TerriB posted on Oct 7 at the beginning of the thread. It has a cute animated short of Pho the Photon and his/her journey to the ice and back. :grin:

And without even knowing - and as a joke - I posted a screen shot of just snow/clouds and called it a blizzard. What a coincidence. :grinning: Oh my gosh! I just realized I also posted “cloud sickles” - what looked like ice sickles hanging down from clouds! I hope that doesn’t really happen! :hushed:

Wow! I bet @cageycat would have to put a kitty sweater on with a wind chill of -174F/-114C! That would put some frost on the pumpkin!
