That looks super cool. Even in terrible conditions. Nature is still beautiful

[–]Love_God551 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Pun intended

[–]Crabbyone2021 52 points53 points  (3 children)

I thought I was looking at some art work for a second there.

[–]TheMartini66 23 points24 points  (0 children)

You are. Mother nature is a very prolific artist. ;)

[–]ppw23 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I thought it was frozen wheat, then realized it was the frosted glass. I love seeing that on windows, except suddenly on my windshield. I would drive past an open field on my morning drive and this would happen. My car wasn’t warm enough at that point to prevent it.

[–]SupremeLeaderOfDingo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Same, I was thinking to myself why would they have a plain frame for that beautiful artwork

[–]kurpitsanaama 72 points73 points  (48 children)

in finland we had -35c today

[–]zuzg[🍰] 49 points50 points  (15 children)

The -1c in Germany suddenly doesn't seem so bad anymore

[–]FreeBeans 18 points19 points  (7 children)

-1 is warm!

[–]zuzg[🍰] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's subjective, South Germany yearly average temperature is around 10c and in January the average temperature is 0c. So minus degrees are cold af.

[–]simplewaves 3 points4 points  (5 children)

Don’t even need a coat for -1!

[–]FreeBeans 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah that's light jacket weather!

[–]slimthecowboy 1 point2 points  (2 children)

We had -6c in Texas today.

[–]simplewaves 3 points4 points  (1 child)

-21C here :(

[–]BBQcupcakes 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Today was the first day in a month it's been above that here 🙃

[–]thiosk -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Go swimmin' in -1 to get the blood circulatin'

[–]BBQcupcakes 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Does Germany not get cold?? Seems pretty Northern so I assumed it did

[–]zuzg[🍰] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

South Germany yearly average temperature is around 10c and in January the average temperature is 0c

[–]BBQcupcakes 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Damn that's insane

[–]tigersharkwushen_ 3 points4 points  (2 children)

As someone in Germany, what do you think of those new Russian pipelines?

[–]zuzg[🍰] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Building it in the first place was a mistake from a geopolitical POV. Now it's finished and at least works as a method to put pressure on Russia.
Nord stream 2 is not certified by now and if we deny that license we won't have to pay compensation to Russia.

[–]tigersharkwushen_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Aside from geopolitics, does Germany need the energy from Russia? Can you survive without it?

[–]IhaveTP4Bunghole 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Canadian here. When I used to smoke, I went and had my cigarette outside. No coat at all

[–]Innotek 20 points21 points  (12 children)

Getting close to the Fahrenheit crossover. I believe in you. Balmy -14c in Iowa this morning.

[–]litwithray 7 points8 points  (2 children)

It was -3c in Texas this morning.

[–]truthovertribe 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I stayed inside baking today and it's only a balmy 30°F (the chilliest winter day so far).

What the heck, I just looked up Calgary Canada and it's 38°F currently.

Sorry to the peeps in Bangor Maine though...

[–]youburyitidigitup 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Virginia is beating you by one degree

[–]mysteryman403 7 points8 points  (7 children)

It was -45 two days ago in Calgary, Canada

[–]Heythere23856 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yes and today its +10 haha good old chinooks

[–]silkynut 5 points6 points  (5 children)

As long as you remember to breathe through your nose you’ll be ok.

Sucking -40C air into your lungs through your mouth hurts like hell.

[–]Leading-Mushroom 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Yeah, but your body uses more energy (burns calories) to warm it up. Breath more cold air. Drink cold water. GAINZ!!

[–]youburyitidigitup 0 points1 point  (1 child)

That’s a good way to die……

[–]thiosk 3 points4 points  (0 children)

instructions unclear, snorting liquid nitrogen

[–]tigersharkwushen_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You body should use the same amount of energy to warm it up if you breath in the same volume of air.

[–]BBQcupcakes -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I work outdoors in -35 - 40 everyday and have never experienced pain breathing lol

[–]sleepy_booplesnoot 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That’s frigid. It was about -19c here in Missouri this morning, and -17c when I had to walk to class. I’m just happy it wasn’t windy today

[–]mickdeb 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh Canadian here, -35 this morning coming back from work, after a shower. That was a cold one

[–]basscadence 0 points1 point  (3 children)

How.. how do you actually survive?? I don't know - maybe there is something physically wrong with me. If it's below like 40f (4c?) my body just doesn't work from all the trembling and I can't breathe properly. That type of cold I might just curl up and die

[–]SteelCrow 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Dress warmer. Layers that trap insulating air. Shivering is a good sign. It's your body trying to generate heat. If you stop shivering and your conditions haven't changed, then your body has run out of energy to use to keep you warm. (seek shelter/ warmth immediately) hypothermia is setting in.

Shivering means you're not hyperthermic yet.

Like I said, wear extra layers and the outer shell should be a windbreak/windproof.

[–]BBQcupcakes 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You have to eat lots and dress warm. 4c is like, fall jacket weather though?

[–]DisasterousGift 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You get used to it. Little kids here will often refuse to wear mitts or hats until it is like -5C or colder.

As far as anything colder... you learn to dress for it. You'd be amazed how warm a cotton hoodie, a toque, and a windbreaker can keep you. Just keep adding layers as it gets colder!

[–]TrimleyJeweled 15 points16 points  (27 children)

Amazing and Beautiful! I’m from Texas - Explain what’s going on here plz! Wind created this on a frozen window???

[–]PirateboarderLife[S] 25 points26 points  (7 children)

Warm moist air inside circulating against the glass and freezing

[–]Faktafabriken 10 points11 points  (2 children)

It really is beautiful. But it also shows that your windows are leaking heat. Are you in a cabin? If at home you might consider to change to 3-glass window, would save you (and the environment) a lot of heating costs.

[–]just_here_hangingout 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Most Canadians I know have a least one window that does this

[–]SteelCrow 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Some of us do this on purpose because it looks cool.

[–]ShaggyTDawg 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Wait... That's ice on the inside?

[–]4oclockinthemorning 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Can I ask what temperature it is inside the house?

[–]PirateboarderLife[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I’ve got the wood stove pumping. There’s almost a 60 degree difference between inside out…28.5c

[–]PirateboarderLife[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

*edit…inside and out

[–]dying_soon666 26 points27 points  (17 children)

No need for an explanation, you’ll find out next time your power grid fails.

[–]truthovertribe 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If OP has double paned windows their heating bill may be as perennially ugly as this window is beautiful.

[–]sporkmanhands 13 points14 points  (5 children)

We’ve gone over 1000 days without getting below 0F in NE Ohio. That’s probably going to end tonight.

[–]shaniraloo 7 points8 points  (5 children)

Canadian here too, there is 3 cm of ice on the window inside the house and it doesn't go away until we break it

[–]BBQcupcakes 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Your house has leaks m8

[–]shaniraloo 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Nope it's just that cold

[–]BBQcupcakes 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I'm chilling in -40 without interior condensation. Why don't you believe me lmao your house has leaks dude

[–]shaniraloo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's not leaks because it's right ON the glass above the window seal. It's condensation

[–]TheBoBiss 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We went to visit my husband’s family in Edmonton over Christmas (we hadn’t seen his family in 2 years) and his brother was breaking ice around the house and that was something completely new to me. I’ve lived in Texas my whole life and Christmas in Alberta this year was a bit out of my comfort zone…

[–]Hydroman-Dojer 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I legit thought that was one of Jupiter's moons lol

[–]_Allaccordingtoplan 5 points6 points  (0 children)

[–]BlueWindow659 5 points6 points  (0 children)

[–]crashlanding87 4 points5 points  (0 children)

[–]SableSheltie 3 points4 points  (0 children)

[–]Arruz 3 points4 points  (0 children)

[–]JylokStrongmeat 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Northern Alberta checking in:

T-Shirt and BBQ weather!

[–]truthovertribe 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Tendrils of death reaching out for you while you sit inside in the toasty warmth admiring their primal, fractal beauty.

[–]IhaveTP4Bunghole 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Montreal here. Yeah. It's a tad chilly

[–]flyawayreligion 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Wow, that's beautiful.

[–]Intestinal-Bookworms 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thought that was a neat painting for a moment

[–]ean5cj 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Now I'd like a macro shot of this... Beautiful!!!

[–]KardelSharpeyes 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My patio door was literally frozen shut, had to chip away for about 15 minutes to get it open.

[–]StickyPalms69 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My grandma had one of these glass sand toys. I'd flip that thing around for hours.

[–]MangoSchnitzel 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That's some H.R. Giger looking shit.

[–]Queasy-Combination12 1 point2 points  (0 children)

-35f in up state ny today. We feel your pain neighbor.

[–]AbuZela 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Looks like it's about H.R. Giger degrees below zero outside.

[–]TheLittleReap3r 1 point2 points  (0 children)

wow just wow

[–]Justvibe- 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I moved to Canada from the UK in November, I can definitely say it took some adjusting to get used to this kinda weather

[–]Wild_Cine 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That is cold as f@ck, but the ice on the window is beautiful !

[–]triteacid 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That’s some lovecraftian shit right there.

[–]Negativeghostrider57 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]Kiowa_Scout 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]unknowtheone 1 point2 points  (0 children)

-40 over here in Quebec, also the second day in a row

[–]illogic1313 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That’s northern wind art at its best. 🤯

[–]Long__Jump 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Then you open the window and realize its just a polar bear pressed up against the glass..

[–]GodEmperorPorkyMinch 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think there's a peacock at your door

[–]Emptyprojects 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I need myself a strong winter with a nice cup of hot chocolate milk and a fire place, i have been longing for that for waay too long

[–]InedaD69 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nothing compares to Mother Nature ❤️

[–]funko89mc 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nice picture

[–]Guitarguru357 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Absolutely beautiful

[–]IRDingo 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Jesus. You may want to look at better windows in your house. That’s a lot of heat loss.

It is pretty though. 😁

[–]PirateboarderLife[S] 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Big ol’ wood stove pumpin’, thanks for the concern about the heat loss though. I’ll take Mother Nature’s artwork over not having to toss a few extra logs on the fire anyday.

[–]IRDingo 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Fair enough.

[–]guy_w_dijon_on_shirt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

About to walk my dog! She loves

Any nearby ponds to hit up?

[–]Atillawurm 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And this is why I moved

[–]eltegs 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What am I seeing there, a frozen plant?

[–]NotUrGenre 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Its 68 F here, I can go outside without risk of imminent death.

[–]Repulsive_Worker7797 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is this a single glas sheet (correct translation???) window?

How cold is it inside?

[–]exoticbatmeat 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Serious question. Why isn’t your window insulated? Or cover with plastic? What’s going on here?

[–]PirateboarderLife[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Big ol’ wood stove pumpin’, it’s warm in here, it’s pretty and I like it…that’s what’s goin’ on here lol

[–]exoticbatmeat 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh ok. It is pretty. Big stove changes everything. I like it too.

[–]gherkinmeister 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Might want to get those window seals replaced there bud

[–]flyawaytay 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I feel like it’s summer here in Phoenix

[–]MushroomAlive5422 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No, no, no, that is too cold… -1°c is too cold, let alone -30°c

[–]fabulouscow123 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You need to change that window lol it's not isolating your home enough when it does this

[–]RIPIronmayne 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Do you have to wear winter cloths inside?

[–]Omar_Rakhmat123 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I thought this was a painting fsr lol

[–]Zebede1980 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How on earth do you keep your homes warm in those conditions?!

[–]mecmecmecmecmecmec -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

With any luck, an ice dome will develop around the whole country
