Being married 30 odd years, I've considered that on ocassion. Problem is the upstairs bedromm isn't heated. Besides, the wife is a proverbial furnace. Neither of us snore or if she does, I never hear it. I sleep on a CPAP machine so it's 30 seconds and lights out......

It's 19 here today and balmy.

3 Days in a row of record cold temps, Friday night (sat morning actually) I woke up at 3:30am for some stupid reason looked at the temp it was -39F, I do not know what the windchill was, don't care either. What I did care about was how terrible it made my truck ride on the way to work at 6:30. so far today it's warmed up a lot 17F but true to Havre the wind is getting with it, I hate the wind

Oh and tomestone's temps those are C, -47C = -52F

Re: Great Falls colder than south pole ...

I hate the bitter cold but would gladly put up with it for a 2 week period if it would get to -40 for that long to kill the pine bettle explosion that we have here in Montana. I have read and heard that it takes 2 weeks of -40 to kill them off... years ago we always had enough bitterly cold periods to keep them knocked down... As Felix states I can't think of another good reason for bitter cold other then bug control..dgarrett
