Yikes that sounds cold.

It's really cold here as well. We'll only get up to postive 42 F today.....

Well, the good news is that the groundhog didn't see his shadow, so we're almost out of it? I'm feeling lucky in southern Ontario, only -15 overnight, with high winds that blew out the pilot light on my water heater. Firing now for ciabatta later. BRRRR.

Re: Weather in Thunder Bay

Nothing about the weather, again. I suppose that many of us cast our lines pretty far looking for recipes of all kinds, and the net lets us go global. Problem is, sometimes I at least get caught up in weight conversions that can deliver ready made mistakes when going from metric to imperial or vice versa. Here's a site for the math challenged out there: weight conversion - kilograms, pounds, grams, ounzes @ metric conversions . org. Just found it, and it's already saved my skin.

Brrrr - that is cold So you don't do baking in the skivvies eh?

Seems like you need a Hogan's Hero Solution to get from the house to the oven. Oh bummer forgot about that high water table. Maybe the Bridges of Ontario.

Coversions are always a stumbling block especially when one part of the world measure bas mass and another uses force. I have been using a program by Josh for the last 10 or so years. I put an Icon on my window that launches the program quickly. Convert @

Re: Weather in Thunder Bay
We finally had a break in the weather in Denver (we have had tons of snow and no warm weather to melt it), it got up to 50 degrees so I fired and baked some sourdough (using the new mixer as well). Very satifsying. It did take an extra 15-20 mins to get the dome white. I suspect because it has been so cold...

We have travelled from Florence (30s), to DC (20s) to Monterey, CA (hit 70 yesterday). That's a shock to the system.
