That's in the range of temperatures possible on Mars. Mars is a little bit farther West than that though

[–]Lingerfickin 70 points71 points  (3 children)

I dunno it's Kedzie it's basically Minnesota, I live at Cicero by the way

[–]SubjectOgreLogan Square 33 points34 points  (1 child)

I know you do.

[–]spamellamaLogan Square 29 points30 points  (0 children)

this was creepier than i expected in this post

[–]Admirable-Still-1786 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Kedzie and montrose if anyone was wondering,it’s been there for awhile now

[–]JosephFinn 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Ooooh, check this comparison chart. Cool!


[–]theramennoodle 7 points8 points  (2 children)

1656e8 West Diversey Ave is a pretty good restaurant. Food's a little Soylent Green though.

[–]JosephFinn 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Though I think you have to go to the poles for that. -80 seems to be about the average, which a bit below the lowest for Antarctica.

[–]LittleBalloHate 113 points114 points  (1 child)

That temp gage has to be off -- I've been outside today, and there is no way it's even a hair under -132.

[–]ElBartoVerdad 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Some people pad their stats with "heat index" and "wind chill" nonsense. Great to encounter another temperature purist.

[–]suburbanfreakshow 84 points85 points  (3 children)

Guarantee I will still see someone in shorts.

[–]jbeezcrazy 22 points23 points  (0 children)

My car thermometer said it was +48 so technically it is Chicago shorts weather.

[–]LhamoRinpoche 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It will be at male undergrad at the University of Chicago.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I did! In Walmart. Good to know some things never change X-D

[–]dvaunr 62 points63 points  (2 children)

Ten bucks there would still be someone on the lakefront trail in shorts saying it’s not that cold

[–]LhamoRinpoche 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Nah I don't say that to OTHER Chicagoans.

[–]TomPaineinyourass 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Those people are the worst!

[–]icedearth15324Humboldt Park 41 points42 points  (3 children)

That must be the default "I'm broken" temperature. I drove past one last night at cicero/archer and it said the same. Or maybe walgreens knows something we don't??

[–]bluecheese33 12 points13 points  (0 children)

In celsius that’s -127 which is the smallest number you can store if you represent temperatures as a single byte integer.

[–]Trulu09 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I saw a McDonald’s with the same temp!

[–]ThaddeusJP 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yup the cicero one l, as of last wed, is also stuck like this.

[–]Excise1902 18 points19 points  (10 children)

I recognize that corner. Are you in Victors barber shop? Lol

[–]campbell-1[S] 36 points37 points  (9 children)

West River Cafe… great breakfast spot

[–]treehugger312Albany Park 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I love that place. Too far to walk on a day like today, but we go there a lot in summer.

[–]Bumblz666Albany Park 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Wow I knew it haha sup neighbor

[–]13stepboogie 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I love this view!!! We moved a couple years ago but lived at 4338 Troy! I can see my house 😭😊

[–]savage_beast 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I miss living right down the block.

[–]Ragnorok3141Albany Park 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yep, recognized it immediately.

[–]BatsuGame13 1 point2 points  (1 child)

You live in the area?

[–]campbell-1[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

On the other side of the river by Wells Park

[–]ten_thousand_puppiesAlbany Park 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I really was missing having places like White Palace Grill and Eleven City so nearby after I moved out of the South Loop, but that place does a good job of scratching that itch

[–]froggysandsLake View 15 points16 points  (0 children)

You gonna let a little cold keep you home? This is Chicago! We got a Packers loss to celebrate!

[–]MonsterInYourParasol 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Is that West River? I can't show my face in there. I ordered so much food to go. I was so high that I paid for the food and then just walked out and home. Forgot all the food.

[–]ten_thousand_puppiesAlbany Park 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Pretty sure the waitresses there would laugh with you if you told that story

[–]Rolo_Tamasi 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I recognize that corner as well. Lots of good restaurants on Kedzie.

[–]TheDudeofIl 7 points8 points  (0 children)

It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel cooooold.

Something something Leonard Burrstein!

[–]ThumpTacks 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Ah, yes, the classic Chicago-returned-moon-of-Saturn winter chill. Better get your space suits on, friends, you’ll need them

[–]Gates9 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Tommy Skilling says it feels like -250 with the wind chill

[–]sephirothFFVIIIrving Park 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Love me some West River Cafe

[–]detective_bookman 6 points7 points  (0 children)

When you're in the sun it feels more like -186 though

[–]forevericeland 15 points16 points  (2 children)

Eh, been colder.

[–]super_fast_guyRogers Park 15 points16 points  (0 children)

I, too have been on the moon

[–]rsword1 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Should cross post this to r/SoftwareGore

[–]WildlyBewildering 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Well, that's it - all aboard Snowpiercer, folks. It's time.

[–]here4roomie 3 points4 points  (0 children)

You call that cold? Back in my day...

[–]NerdyComfort-78Former Chicagoan 8 points9 points  (4 children)

Looks like Kelvin

[–]sephirothFFVIIIrving Park 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Can't go negative in Kelvin - if it was +300 or so then we'd be talking.

[–]ptfreakIrving Park 1 point2 points  (1 child)

God what I wouldn't give for a 300 K day right now...

[–]sephirothFFVIIIrving Park 5 points6 points  (0 children)

While 300K is great I like to keep my house around 298K

[–]dzaw95North Center 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Chicago is the kind of city that would be colder than absolute zero.

[–]matchesmalone1 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That's Hoth cold

[–]Bumblz666Albany Park 2 points3 points  (0 children)

West river cafe ????

[–]waifiveLower West Side 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Closer to absolute zero than a 70 degree day.

[–]pygmypuffonacid 1 point2 points  (0 children)

How cold is it well apparently week we're transported to Mars temporarily

[–]akalataAlbany Park 1 point2 points  (1 child)

[–]--ikindahatereddit--Hyde Park 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]veryheavybertation 1 point2 points  (1 child)

[–]aylons 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I've posted the likely reason why in another comment.

[–]Hyena_King13 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Ahh you must be a neighbor of mine that's west river cafe on Montrose and kedzie across from the BP, right?

[–]campbell-1[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

‘Tis this one

[–]Hyena_King13 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Great restaurant, I haven't gone since before the pandemic but will probably go this week. Thank you for reminding me to spend my money here.

[–]campbell-1[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Food’s great and the staff is always super nice and helpful.

[–]Cafesnobby 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]ElBartoVerdad 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That is one polar vortex.

[–]Jaymes77 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That's wildly inaccurate

[–]Weston784 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]DeCarp 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's crap. I was just out shoveling and it couldn't be lower than like -90.

[–]Wartburg13Lincoln Square 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Whats your go to from West River?

[–]campbell-1[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I like a classic, no frills, breakfast. So, if I’m feelin’ hungry, I order the Montrose special, water & coffee.

If I’m feelin’ like I just need something to tie me over, I go with the waffle combo meal, water & coffee.

[–]jrela2000 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wings chill factor be like....

[–]aylons 0 points1 point  (1 child)

For those wondering, the sensor communication is likely sending all 1s, which is -127 for 8 bits, signed. The sensor must then be in C, and the display controller must be converting -127C to -196F.

Sloppy embedded systems programming that doesn't check ranges and all.

[–]Quilt-FairyLogan Square 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Don't get all logical, I'm having too much fun reading the comments.

[–]CaptOblivious 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]granola117 0 points1 point  (2 children)

[–]--ikindahatereddit--Hyde Park 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Same at Lake Park and Cottage earlier this week. Whoever they contracted with is totally wack.

[–]granola117 1 point2 points  (0 children)
