If you thinkcustomary, you will find out that 0/2C is -9C (32F being 0C 32/2=16F - 16 being just below -9C.

So there's the answer to half of 0 degrees Celsius: -9

Anybody noticed, that Google maps has improved coverage of road & rail in many previously neglected countries, like China and many African countries? There is even detailed map of Havana. Looks like just North Korea is still empty white spot.

It's snowing over here now too. Breckenridge is going to have a snowbase of at least 60 inches

or something like -20C, if you take 20C as ideal temperature for you when 19C is cold and 21C is warm and 20C is your virtual zero, than real 0C is just 20 degress below your ideal temperature and twice as that is 40 so 20-40= -20C this is probably closest to term "twice as cold than zero" because these temperatures (0, -20C) are based on your feelings of ideal temperature

or you can take absolut zero which is -273C, so if 0C is 273 degrees above absolute zero then twice as cold would be 273/2= -136.5C, twice as close to absolute zero

As BND mentioned before here is a huge amount of snow.
I took these shots around 12:15 AM:

A street in my village, yesterday a car spinned here :

And the main road 510, a secondary main road, this is in much better condition, most of the main roads looks like this now:

Next week the temperature will be under 0°C, so to the weekend we will have a good skating time.

Does anybody has an idea what a regular car engine (diesel or petrol) consumes idling? Can you make it a whole night with the engine idling, providing warmth in the car?

For a petrol engine it should be around 1 -2 l/h.

Some time ago I left my car idling for about 5 hrs(winter, night, -5C) I slept in.
After that I had not noticed any difference on the fuel gauge.
It was zetec petrol engine 1.8, made in 2002)

The other thing is, you can get a fine for leaving your vehicle idling, don't you
