    What does this post mean to say? “Record cold” – have you got a number? No doubt it is cold in Greenland, on the ice sheet. but what should we make of that?

  2. Andy DC says:

    Close to -40 with a wind in early September! That is amazing. But that can never undo the irreparable damage to the ice cap from two hours of (barely) above freezing temperatures.

    But it’s at 10000 feet according to Mosher. Once that other 9000 feet of ice melts, the last 1000 feet of ice will melt in a flash!!

    “The siren has sounded players have left the course for now … play will recommence in probably 9 months; So, David Feherty, what do you think will be going through the players minds right now ?”

    With a 9 MPH breeze, the chill is a humdinger!

    Around this time of the equinox year (Autumn/Spring), when the two poles arrive somewhat synchronously in temperature, we call it an “Ice Age”.
    Luckily, we still have a few hundred years to go before those conditions reappear:)
