We are starting the year with temperature too cold for the heat pump to work! My toes froze! (Not really, but it's a bit chilly here.)

Over in the PoorJoke thread, l posted this morning that in readying for wudu, l couldn't tell if my feet or the bare floor were the coldest.

Tomorrow, the local weather hysteric is 'predicting' "record cold".

Where in the heck is the global warming Trump promised US ?

:ranting: "And it is getting cold down here, too."

The thought of the re-appearance of Imam Mahdi (af) this year gives me chills of hope and shame at the same time. 

What will happen when he rises up? Will we flock walking, flying, driving from our countries to meet him or will we remain in our daily routines, jobs etc?

^^^^^ Well, l hope he doesn't freeze to death.  :shock:

So l just watched the BBC. Two interesting items according to them.

1] It is colder at Niagara Falls then at the North Pole.

2] Some zoo brought their penguins inside to get them out of this cold.  :ko:"And people say there is something wrong with MY head. Sheesh."

So l have an idea. Everyone back their cars out of their garages and let them run; while we get some exercise breathing rapidly. Turn your home heat up also.

This way, we might produce enough CO2 to warm the continent up.

:clap:"Jump jacks, everyone?"

Maybe they were Galapagos penguins?

I saw photos of Niagara Falls frozen; beautiful but so devastating, too. They found a shark frozen to death on Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

It was below -40 Celsius where I live for most of the winter break.

Worst thing about it was that it was too cold to get to the neighborhood outdoor rink.

May Allah grant us the chance to have personal libraries like these.

Just to clarify, those pictures (Library) are not my own personal pictures. As much as i revere and respect brother Nader, i can assure you all i have not been invited into his house yet sadly. He posted them in this thread: http://www.shiachat.com/forum/topic/235016926-photo-of-your-library/?page=2

I am in no way an insider or can give details about him, and i am (sadly) not related to the great man and his brother. 

I find books pretty, especially Arabic ones, because you have those lovely patterns and the books align together to give you the overall title when the volumes are stacked together. No doubt a layman like me could even hope to understand one of those books, but for sure i can admire them from a distance.

How are you surviving in the cold? From the pictures i'm seeing, it's like being on the moon of Jupiter.

They're now predicting something they call a "bomb cyclone". Sounds dramatic. Anyone here been hit yet?

l went to Arctic Warfare skool, so l do ok.

l have the thermostat at 61'F. And have a little space heater on low at my feet since l am not moving around.

l had to look this up ~10 days ago. The temperature records that is. ln 1965 we had a warm Xmas Eve and l asked my Dad should we drain the waterlines to/for the cattle. He said a 'no' because he thought it would stay warm. Of course it froze overnight when the local city temperature hit 28'F. So we spent Xmas morning thawing the steel water pipes which ran over the augur feeder to the trough with little bowls of burning kerosene. lt took about 3 hours as the feeder alone was 75 feet (~24m). Finally we got the water flowing to fill the trough. What l found unusual was that the glove l held the kerosene in was stuck-froze to my hand.
