Post-script. The wind chill for most of those days was somewhere around -41C. This California boy is having zero fun. To convert Celsius to Fahrenheit, Multiply degrees Celsius by 1.8 and add 32.

Man oh man - I spent 5 years in Alberta and 20 in Northern Ontario. It is pretty damn cold here in Lake Havasu City. The temps in the morning are as low as 40 degrees F (thats about 3 C for our metric mates). This is totally brutal B)

I have never lost a cell phone by water damage, toilet or otherwise. Last winter, my boys lost both their cell phones to salt water damage from a sailing trip to Victoria in heavy winter seas. And my husband dropped his into a bucket of clams and seawater.

OH FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!!! Someone take these screaming fighting kids!!! There is no school and no work. Can't they for once sleep in past 6am
I had a rule in my house. When my two boys hit that age where everything was a fight. I told them that I had never seen one of them go berserk on the other without provocation. So, from then on.. every time they fought, they both lost video games for 3 days . Before the first 3 days were up, they had gotten a second.. and a third... they went about a month and a half without the games.

I knew I had won one day when they were starting to escalate into that frenzy and I heard the oldest go... "Shhhhh mom's gonna hear!"... Ah.. united against a common enemy.... They are best friends to this day.

How many phones/pagers have you dropped into the deep big blue??

For me, 2 cell phones, and a pager........ A new meaning for the term "Water proof"! :p
I don't feel so bad! I've dropped 2 in the toilet in the past year...not because I was on the toilet talking on the phone, but because on duty, I carry my cell phone on my belt & after unbuckling, the weight pulled it off right into the toilet. Ew!

so what you're saying is that this thread(a general free floating flight of ideas) is the most popular thread in the history of the board.

interesting. but a general discussion sub board would ruin life as we know it around here and make this the worst site on the net, right?

I lost my cell phone last year on a call. I was going up a ladder to board a ship with our defib and jump bag when my phone, clipped to my belt, bumped the ladder and fell into the harbour. It was about 2 hrs later when I reached for it to phone home,as we were late, that I noticed it missing. That was a long call.

It is about -10C (14F)here tonite going up to +2C (35F) tomorrow. We are supposed to have snow then rain. More rain and wind on Thurs with temp +10C (50)then to -7C (20F)on Fri. Gotta love the weather. If you don't like it, wait a bit, it'll change soon enough. It should make lots of ice and working thru Christmas lots of fun.

Stay safe everyone.


Merry Christmas :):)

You should shop at Winn Dixie. I had never heard of Winn Dixie before until we were on vacation in Florida and decided to find a grocery after few too many margaritas and at that point Winn Dixie was the funniest name I'd ever heard. We don't have any cool stores here, no Publix, no Winn Dixie, and no friggen dunkin donuts.

I shop at Winn Dixie only in times of extreme desperation. They have roaches all over their shelves! They're soooo nasty!

The only thing I ended up buying at Winn Dixie was a gallon of cheap wine because we didn't realize gas stations and groceries didn't have liquor in florida. And what's the deal with no liquor on Sundays? I never realized how good we had it in WI until I went there.

We don't have Publix, Winn Dixie, Dunkin Donuts, Timmy Horton's, or liquor in grocery stores/gas stations in Colorado. We did, however, get our no-liquor-on-Sundays laws lifted on July 6th of this year! Woo!

Nebraska has liquor in it's gas stations and grocery stores. I think I spent a good 30 minutes of my 45 minute trip to Target just looking at the Target wine. I couldn't get over it!

Well my two have lived without toys, games, and tv for a while. Not to mention lost of friend privledge and have been grounded to their rooms for weeks at a time. NOTHING WORKS. Am I whining? YES. They act just like their dad. Think he had defective sperm. Hard headed little things. Did I mention that its a 7yo girl and 6yo boy. That is never a good combo.
