Our low is typically around -100F to -110F (the record is somewhere
around -117F, IIRC)
This time of year, -60F to -75F is common.

I brought plenty of cool non-work-related hardware... my SBC-6120
w/FP-6120 and IOB-6120, a Spare Time GIzmos Embedded Elf w/disk
interface, an Elf-2000 w/STG1861, a STG mp3 player, an RB5X robot
(INS8073-based), an MC-1N microcontroller (also INS8073-based),
several LCD and VFD displays for LCDproc (http://www.lcdproc.org), a
"Real Console" 6809 board, a MicroElf, a couple of binary clocks, some
Atmel microcontrollers, and a modernish (2002) 6502 SBC. I think
that's most of the toys I brought to get through the night. I also
have Amiga Forever, simh and klh10 for emulation of various boxes (I
used to bring an Amiga down, but now it's just too large to justify).
Plenty of toys here. Now I just have to pack them up and take them home.
