Re: PLEASE tell me the weather channel is wrong...

Yesterday as we began planning our trip to Colorado on March 28th I thought I'd check Gunnison, Colorado's weather. End of March I figured it would still be a bit chilly, at least in the early morning and evenings. So I typed in "Gunnison"...

A little fancy graphic came up saying that currently it's 3° in Gunnison. That's one "3", no other digits. 3. You hear what I'm saying here? 3!

That HAD to be an error... or so I thought.

I checked the extended weather.. on the day we arrive the high is supposed to be 37°. That's the HIGH.... as in NOT the low but rather the HIGH.

End of March.... a high of 37° Had we been on our way to Antarctica I would have expected this... but a locale in the USA, in late March, almost April? Had we been traveling to Nome, Alaska in late March I would have thought, "eh, must be an unseasonable cold spell, we got unlucky".

I have no clothing for the vacuum of space temps. Do vehicles still function at such temperatures? Without a preheating face mask will my lungs freeze solid?

My wife is originally from the south and then lived in South America and Italy. When she first moved to Maine she sat on the couch shivering with a blanket around her. It was June, and it was 52.

I told her that when she got used to it, there would be days when it was in the 40s and she would think that was great. Now and then when it's in the 40s I remind her of that conversation, and she agrees. She got used to it and the 40s are nice.

3 is pretty cold though. I know they're saying Canada will be the coldest it has been in more than 100 years. They say Colorado is having its coldest March in decades.
