Grant, what is the weather currently like there?
 
bill 2015-02-27 13:19:23
I don't think so, Grant, although I've never tried it here. Too cold to go outside and try it. ha ha!

Bill, I saw a video today of a policeman in Maine throwing a glass of water into the air. The water froze before it hit the ground. Amazing!! Are these the type of temperatures you're receiving?
 
bill 2015-02-25 19:41:05
Celebration for sure! :-)
 
grant228 2015-02-24 02:03:29
Is that a cause for celebration or consternation?!
 
bill 2015-02-23 09:16:33
Yes. BTW, I hear that it's going to be above freezing here this weekend!
 
grant228 2015-02-22 04:29:13
Bill, so does that mean the ice in the picture is a crust for the water rushing underneath it?
 
bill 2015-02-21 22:21:55
Thanks Grant! Actually, we could probably use a quiz or two on cricket! I would certainly fail them!

Yes, I saw the pictures at Niagara. Apparently, it's the mist that freezes as the rushing water is just to swift to freeze.
 
grant228 2015-02-20 22:53:25
Bill, congratulations on your commitment! Unfortunately for me they are as meaningful to an Australian as a series of quizzes on cricket would be for you and your compatriots. Seeing an image of a frozen Niagara Falls this morning would mean there's more than available frozen space for your game or was that picture courtesy of photoshop?

For all the hockey fans out there, we now have a trivia quiz on every NHL team. Beauty, eh?!
 
 
grant228 2015-02-16 14:05:56
Cubs, haven't seen either of your suggestions. My wife likes something to do with vampires I thought was filmed around that area. It looks bleak resulting in pallid faces of all involved. She loves it. I don't hence concentrate on quizzes!

We've made some changes to the site around quiz authoring and the authors scoreboard. We've put the Authors page items on the front page and removed the authors page for now, to try to give more visibility to the authors scoreboard and the opportunity to write quizzes and bioquizzes. We hope this doesn't cause to much inconveniance for anyone.

Not to change the subject but today is Friday the 13th, a day that, according to many, is associated with bad luck or unfortunate occurrences. The number 13 has became infamous for many reasons throughout history but perhaps the mishap that is most well known had to do with the Knights Templar.

On Friday, 13 October 1307, hundreds of the Knights Templar were arrested in France, possibly giving rise to the fear of a curse on that day. They were tortured and murdered (not by some dark unknown force, but by the Catholic Church themselves - they were such children in those days!). The lucky ones escaped; some to Northern Europe and, according to some, even North America (some believe they brought treasure with them, possibly to Oak Island in Nova Scotia).

So, there you have some Friday the 13th trivia!

Oh yea, there is also something about a movie called Friday the 13th...

While watching the national news coverage of another blizzard in the NE, guess I am happy with our occasional gray skies. The next 4 days will be sunny with highs near 60! It is very rare for us to get snow after Valentine's Day. Grant - have you watched the show "Grimm?" It is filmed in my area. You get a real sense of Portland and surrounds. (Also a quirky show called "Portlandia" which showcases our weirdness. "Keep Portland Weird" is the unofficial city motto.) You have made me want to revisit "Northern Exposure."
 
grant228 2015-02-12 05:14:34
Cubs, I have a teacher friend who was in Washington state for a year. She commented on how dull the weather was and how this affected her and the kids. Northern Exposure was special. Allowed one to think and reflect. My favourite episode was when Chris had to decide how to bury his best friend, Tooley. Seeing the coffin sailing through the air to the strains of A Whiter Shade of Pale was a magical TV moment.
 
lmcubs 2015-02-11 23:17:58
Grant - I know of people here in the Portland, Oregon area who truly suffer from SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder). We have many gray days during fall and winter. Using a light does seem to help them. By the way, LOVED Northern Exposure!!
 
bill 2015-02-10 21:27:37
That's interesting but not overly wacky to most of us who live in the north! 60s and 70s here in Florida!
 
grant228 2015-02-10 03:36:28
Bill, enjoy the sun! I remember an episode of Northern Exposure dealt with the effects of minimal sun in winter. One of the characters walked around wearing a light to counteract the effect of no sun.
 
bill 2015-02-09 08:15:27
Not sure about the vitamin d deficency Grant. Have not heard much about it. Im in Florida this week on business so getting lots of sun!
 
grant228 2015-02-08 15:40:10
Bill, that was Celsius/centigrade. She's become pretty accustomed to life as a snow bunny considering this is her first experience in the deep freeze. I suppose the postcard scenes of virginal white countrysides begin to pale when faced with it for three months. Does Vitamin D deficiency ever become an issue because of lack of sun?
 
bill 2015-02-05 22:18:36
At Christmastime, it helps to put you in the spirit. After the holidays are over, however, I'm ready for spring. Trouble is, winter is just starting at that point!

Frostbite? I guess it would depend on a lot of factors.

-15F or C????
 
grant228 2015-02-04 05:30:22
Bill, are there any physical dangers to being outside in those temperatures? How long does it take for frostbite to set in? Daughter in Banff told me it was -15 today. Can't imagine how cold that must be. There must be a few brass monkeys looking for welding equipment.
 
bill 2015-02-03 22:56:48
With me, I do got out but, for the most part, only when I need to. I'm not too chicken to go out, eh?!

Those heartier than I spend time skiing, skating and such. I used to play hockey but haven't in years. Bum knee put a stop to that!
 
grant228 2015-02-03 14:46:36
Bill, as I've said before, you lot must be tough to survive such conditions. Does the intense cold invigorate and give a zest to be active or numb people into staying inside around cosy implements?
 
bill 2015-02-03 09:30:50
Oh, heavenly days no! Not around here. That's in Canada, eh? The earliest it gets dark around here is about 5pm which is around the first day of winter. During that time the sun comes up a little before 8am making for a little over nine hours of daylight.

Seeing we're about 6 weeks removed from the shortest days of the year right now, it's getting dark here around 6pm and is actually daylight at about 7am. Trouble is, we have about 14 inches (about 36 cm) of snow on the ground and it was like 0 (-18C) here this morning! Brrrrr!
 
grant228 2015-02-02 05:11:20
Congratulations, New England! Good to see a close result. Bill, during winter how many hours of sunlight do you get? I heard stories of it getting dark around 3pm?
 
bill 2015-02-01 09:00:38
First big snow storm in SE Michigan here today - could be more than 12 inches. Luckily, I have lots of young people here (my kids) to help shovel! :-)
 
bill 2015-02-01 08:59:31
Hey maybe they should make the uniforms out of Velcro and the ball too. That would be cool!

grant228 2015-01-31 06:06:06
Bill, thanks for explanation but cheating is cheating no matter what people think. I often wondered with the protective clothing and helmets whether these are checked to ensure they're not hiding implements that could hurt an opponent?
