50 F
Californians try to turn on the heat. Norwegians plant gardens.

40 F
Italian cars won’t start. Norwegians drive with the windows open.

32 F
Distilled water freezes. Glomma River cools off.

20 F
Californians shiver uncontrollably. Norwegians have the last barbeque before it gets cold.

0 F
Californians fly to the Bahamas. Norwegians throw on a sweater.

-20 F
Santa Barbarans become extinct. Norwegians get out their winter coats.

-40 F
Hollywood disintegrates. Norwegians get frustrated because theycan’t thaw the keg.

-160 F
Santa Claus abandons the North Pole. Swedes refresh themselves by running outside for a moment from the sauna.

-297 F
Microbial life survives on dairy products. Norwegian cows complain of farmers with cold hands.

-460 F
Atomic motion stops. Norwegians start asking, “Kaldt nok for deg?” (“Cold enough for you?”)
