Fact of the Day: Celsius Fahrenheit

While Celsius and Fahrenheit are different systems to measure temperature, there is one degree of temperature where they are both the same. The degree is negative forty degrees which is far below freezing.

Wow. I didn't know that. It messed with my mind when I was in England and they'd say the temperature. They switched to Celsius but we're still on Fahrenheit over here in the U.S.

I never knew this and I also hope to never experience it. However, it is currently snowing where I am (even though it is mid April), so who knows what the future holds...

I have friends who live in Canada so when they post their temps on fb I have to find an online Celsius to F converter to see what their temp is. lol

When I was a little girl and up until more than a decade or so ago, Canada was on the Fahrenheit system, but since everything changed to metric we are now using Celsius...to this day, and since the onset of this new system, I still calculate in my head from Celsius to Fahrenheit.
