Whoo boy.

Last night’s temperature near here was -40 degrees.

Well, I mean degrees Celsius. But by a happy accident minus forty Celsius is equal to minus forty Fahrenheit. (Is equal to “you pisses and youse dick is frozen to the ground by the way of a pillar of yellow ice; nice job idiot” cold.)

Don’t know how cold it was this morning exactly, but consider this: Jumped on my bicycle; after a few kilometers found it making a weird bumpity-bumpity motion. Reason? Back tire flat. Pretty certain it was the temperature that made it brittle enough. (Didn’t see any glittering bottle-fragments of a youthful Friday evening, you see.)
