Fifty Degrees of Separation

Imagine our joy when we got to the Houston airport today in balmy 25C weather to find out on the gate board that is was -13F in Calgary. Freaking Americans and their Fahrenheit! When are they converting to the metric system already?

While Joe and I argued about what -13F was in Celsius, the dude at the gate said it was around -25C. I broke down and cried. Does the plus or minus sign really matter? Not anymore. I'm back in cold, harsh reality tonight.
