I just picked up my laptop computer to write my blog and was surprised to feel how cold it was. Or was it? Maybe it just felt cold because it is stainless steel. Well, at least it looks like stainless steel. That doesn't matter, it is metal and when I picked it up this morning it felt extremely cold!! In fact it felt colder than anything else I touched this morning that was in the house. If it is real cold and you go outside and pick up two objects, one made of wood and one made of metal, which one feels the coldest? The metal one does and it got me wondering. It must have something to do with thermodynamics; the way thet heat and energy act. I suppose that the piece of wood and the piece of metal are the same temperature, but one transfers the heat or cold (lack of heat) faster than the other.
If you we born and raised in the cold north, when you were young you were warned about placing your lips or tongue on any cold metal in the winter time. There is always some wild kid that didn't believe it and had to prove it to himself. No!!! It was not me!! There were other warning we were given as kids, like don't eat the yellow snow! When I was a kid I just loved to be out in the snow. The worst the blizzard, the more I wanted to be out in it. Now I live where it would be a rarity in deed to see snow. Regardless whether it snows or it is hot where you live, just have yourself a really great day, you hear?
