Easy -- like Sunday morning! FROM:
Winter can bring on some extreme weather in many regions around the world. Here in Idaho it is 20 degrees outside and an icy blanket of frost blankets the frozen ground. Looking out my window at this frosty landscape got me thinking.
What is the most extreme place you have ever visited?
Can I mention two places ? Please ?!? OK, Thanks..
1..Ridgecrest, California, out on the Mojave desert in June 2003. Came thru there to visit my grandfather's grave and it was 115 degrees on the thermometer hanging inside the porch of the cemetery office. That night it dropped to 40 degrees...that's what happens in the desert.
2..Somewhere on the Amtrak lines in the middle of Montana in February 1980...the train stopped at a station and the big thermometer hanging in the station said 25 below zero. I started out of the train to take a picture of it and the train man said "lady, you better get a coat on." I didn't ...just got out to take the picture and almost froze to death right on the spot.
Those are two real opposites of extreme temperature that I've experienced. Linda
