Dressing for -26°C

This is apparently how you have to dress for -26°C (about -15°F).  There was a biting wind that day too adding a few extra degrees to how it felt.

Rumour has it that Son-of-Furtheron is buried in there somewhere!

He and his crowd are in one of the last of the accommodation blocks in the town so the walk is about 15 - 20 mins to get to the university this is him ready for the walk back at the end of the day.

Here is a panorama he created of the walk...  

Please DON'T STEAL THIS - it is my son's work please respect that.


  1. Wow, that's some beautiful desolation there.

    Once you get down to crazy cold like minus 26 degrees, are you actually even still aware of it when the temperature drops even more? I can't imagine that my body could differentiate between that and, say, minus 30...

  2. Your son's photography is impressive.

    It's been in the negative Fahrenheits here. Not quite what son of Futheron is dealing with, but I can commiserate to a degree. Frostbite sucks, so it's good he's got the right gear. What an adventure!

    1. He is a semi-pro photographer having had some published in a couple of national papers, web sites etc. All this study and he might still in that route. :-)

  3. the goggles say it all... if it's so cold that the fluid in your eyeballs freezes? that's c-c-c-c-c-c-cold!

  4. it is gorgeous, but burrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
