I was reading schmism's post about the cold, and I sure don't miss the cold weather despite the increased efficiency.

It occurred to me that @upnorthandpersonal was probably thinking 10°F... how balmy... wait until it hits -40°F 😲

But then wondered who has the biggest bragging rights for latitude? Obviously not me at 25°N. Is it you?
If so, let us know whose closest to the north (or south) pole.

It's so cold here this morning (55°F) that the leaves on the trees are literally shaking.... oh wait... no... that's just the breeze. 😜
The heat came on again, that's the second time this year! Before you hate me, remember the flip side (ref)

I live at 6000' elevation and camp at 9000' elevation. Does that count?

Yes, I know the difference between elevation and latitude.

My earlier life was 43N before I defected from Wisconsin as a climate refugee. Currently at 30N and ain’t ever going back.

Maybe I made a mistake by moving to south Texas, we even got a couple of freezes already and December isn’t over yet. Belize is sounding really good now.

I lived in Houston for 13 years. No way I'm going back there to live. The last summer I was there, I knew it was time to go when mowing the lawn I used twice as much Gatorade as gasoline.

41 degrees 34 minutes N - 124 degrees 4 minutes 12 seconds W
The Westernmost point in the lower 48 is 124 degrees 44 minutes W only 39 minutes and 88 seconds farther West. Anybody farther West than us in the Lower 48??

We are 40 miles EAST of the Westernmost point.

I’m someplace about 57-58 degrees north but varied between sea level and 2000+ ft above sea level. North east of Scotland
I spend the winters in the mountains and it can be -20c. I’ve seen it at -15c at midday at times
