(From Wikipedia)
Cold refers to the condition of having low temperature, it is the absence of heat relative to the concept of warmth. The color blue is associated with cold. Many things are also associated with cold, for instance ice. Absolute zero is the coldest temperature that can be reached which is 0 K on the Kelvin scale, which is a thermodynamic temperature scale, and -273.15° on the Celsius scale. Absolute zero is also precisely equivalent to 0 °R on the Rankine scale (also a thermodynamic temperature scale), and -459.67 degrees on the Fahrenheit scale.

Cold places
* Jupiter with a temperature of -166 °C at the cloud tops.
* Mars has a temperature of about -180 °C (-292 F).
* Saturn with a temperature of -180 °C (-292 F) at cloud tops.
* Neptune with a temperature of -218 °C (-360 F) at the cloud tops.
* Uranus with a temperature of -218 °C (-360 F) at cloud tops.
* Edmonton, Alberta this past weekend... with a temperature of -31 °C ( -38 with the windchill)

I'm feeling cold. Outside is cold, inside is cold, even my thoughts are cold...they are kind of hunched over with their hands in my pockets scurrying to the next idea to see if they can find a little warmth there. So much going at this time of year, this time in our family, this time in our lives, this time in the world especially. Lots of cold thought spots and I just can't stay in one place too long...

On the drawing side...a very busy gig weekend, lots of great faces...especially the kids....and here's a group of cartoon portraits I did last week for the City of Edmonton's Asset Management department for their web site...

I think I'll just bundle up my thoughts and listen to some blues...
