    Try -56 degrees for size.
    I havenít always lived as far south as Michigan or in the U.S.

    And now back to regular programming. Tsk Tsk

    In fact, why not shoot in a registered match before it gets any colder.
    Ya got me beat there -52F is coldest I've lived in but I've been involved in a LOT of steel fabrication and you'll have to do a lot better than that to convince me that welding and bending below zero is commonly achieved. When we weld in the cold we have cubbies with cherries out pre-heating ahead......I've busted bars and welds and had guys hurt by flying steel below zero. We don't cold-fab 60 grade rebar below zero because it snaps on the bend and sends bars flying. 35 below and metal starts shattering under sharp blows. Erection? Yeahh.... unaffected but fabrication? Nope.

    yup, and I've taken many a pleasant dump at 0 degrees......INSIDE LOL.

    Simple fact is that the temperature of the concrete itself must be kept above 42F at all times to keep it from dying and above 50F to cure. Ain't no first job quite like pouring concrete in the cold, running machines inside tarped and visqueened enclosures, breathing exhaust fumes and sweating under dripping ice drops. It takes weeks of clean living to get rid of the smells pouring off your self.


    An awful lot of the concrete in Fairbanks and Anchorage poured in the last 20yrs was poured by friends of mine. I've got 30-40 friends and rellies based in Wasilla

    Fairbanks used to get fairly cold but not North Slope cold.....and they call that balmy southern place "Los Anchorage" or even "North Seattle"......

    I guess youíve never heard of pre-heating before welding.
    If you were in sub-tropical Michigan youíd never get anything done and yes, there is a lot of welding going on in erecting.
