We've had a very mild winter so far with relatively little snow. That all changed this week with a snowstorm on Thursday and the children's first skiing lesson today. The temperature hovered around the -18C mark with a "feels like" like rating of -25C. The feels like factor basically accounts for the windchill - so despite barely any flesh on show due to a combination of goggles, ski masks and neck warmers we all returned from a chilly mountain this evening with rosy cheeks and frozen toes.
The weather also gave my husband a chance to try out a little science experiment we had previously seen on youtube.
