    About 6 inches here -- now it's windy and it's pretty drifty, too.

    I traded e-mails with our son-in-law a little while ago.
    I asked him if he had plugged in the block heater for it. He said no, but he would when the really cold weather comes back [i.e., tomorrow]. He also said it did a great job clearing the snow tonight :) Now I'm thinking he needs a cab for it!

    I pay a guy to snowplow our driveway.
    When and if we end up getting a big pickup, I might invest in a plow and do it myself -- but I kind of like having someone else do it (after years of doing our own driveway in MA).

    Oh, it's directional -- leads straight to things like thinking that this is a great record album.

    Oh .... my ..... gawd ! :o

    Perhaps one might think that barriers of snow and ice are sufficient to protect one from the Wrath of the Floyd Army, but that would be wrong thinking.

    One might find hope and redemption by claiming "cabin fever". :'(

    On days like that, we used to wrap up our 'taters & chicken in aluminum foil, then place them in the wood stove to roast. Yuuummmm!

    It was 254 degrees Kelvin in Central PA this morning. B)

    LOL ! :D

    -19.5 F to be exact.


    Why does Kelvin measurement exist ? what is the reason ? I understand Celsius.

    I'm kind of amazed that car gauge manufacturers would program their gauges to read - 22 degrees.

    Who is going to drive in that temp. and where in the states does it reg. dip that low .

    Couldn't the gauge just say or show " Get back to a warm area immediately ! Immanent danger if vehicle stops running ! "

    Because zero Kelvin is absolute zero, the lowest possible temperature. The Kelvin scale is absolute; Fahrenheit and Celsius scales are relative, with, in each case, an arbitrary reference point. Sort of like decibels :)

    The Kelvin scale solves the problem of having achievable temperatures that are zero degrees (zero degrees F = about -20 degrees C; zero degrees C = 32 degrees F). Having values of zero can make certain calculations bothersome (for example, division by zero is just plain not allowed*).

    * What division by zero looks like.

    Remember. Friends don't let friends divide by zero. This has been a public service announcement, courtesy of the math nerds of the world.

    Interesting to say the least ! Thanks . ;) B)

    Is there a limit to coldness ? YES , I just found it.
    Absolute zero, the temperature at which all thermal motion ceases in the classical description of thermodynamics.

    Now what is Kelvin scale Maximum ? Infinite heat like the sun but x billion more deg.'s. ? I'm just a science nut that got sidetracked by the need to eat and survive.

    I was named most interested in science around the 6th grade. But back then, there were NO paths or help for an underprivileged kid to advance their gift or interests UNLESS there was MONEY to back them. I'm talking late 60's here. Sure, maybe some got to pursue their dreams with-out backing. I'm not disputing that possibility.

    But GRANTS and STUDENT LOANS were reserved for a select few. Athletes and kids with parental connections comes to mind. My Step daughter got a partial scholarship to UNCW because of her soccer skills and I'm sure, her high school coach talked highly of her to a UNCW soccer coach behind the scenes.

    George W. Bush for instance. Where did he go to school ? One school I know of was " The Presidential Preparation School of Somewhere" ( I would need to research the location ) . Now who paid for that ? A poor kid, I don't believe would be considered at all, right ? He was given a directed, by many I'm sure, a SOLID path. My path was skinny with a lot of branches. That's all. No regrets here. My life has been mostly great but I had to work hard on it, believe me.

    The two sentences highlighted in bold have, and always will be , a part of life in the Collegiate World . But for the past 20 years or more, Almost anybody can get a student loan to continue there interests in any field they feel they want to pursue. That's nice. But I knew a guy that had a 70,000.00 student loan to pay back. And he got hired to do a job I with no loan was more capable of doing than him.

    I would've liked to work for NASA for sure. And that was a dream when I was 12.

    I'm laughing right now thinking how different my life would've been. :p WOW.

    Sorry for the rambling !

    I still LOVE science though !

    Yup, named after Lord Kelvin -- he's a big hero in my line of work.
    I am not technically a thermodynamicist, but (if I do say so myself) I know more about thermodynamics than your average biochemist :p

    Well then, here you go. (see image below) :p Also, your question should be followed by a question mark. And not a space followed by a question mark, but a question mark immediately after the last word in your sentence. See? And a comma after "learn" would be nice. Thanks. :p

    I think what your saying is that we learned him real goodly -- but, you know, not to goodly. That be wierd.
