Today the high temperature here in Chaumont NY was -4 degrees. (that's 4 below zero farenheit). However, as is most often the case with these low temps, the Sun was out. I spent about three hours outdor in it. I was perfectly comfortable. I Had two layers of clothes covereing my legs, four layers on my arms & torso, my head covered with a knit toque(a knit hat, not sure how it's spelled). I also split up some firewood. These activities make one warm indeed out there in the frosty elements. At 4:30pm it has dropped to 5 below zero. Tonight it is supposed to go down to minus 20 to minus 30 degrees. We shall see.
Well it is now 9:00pm and the temprature here in Chaumont, NY is minus 14.
