As the Finns have pointed out, swamp isn't just water. *Pure* water in the
RW freezes at 0 degrees Celcius. Real water (outside of a laboratory)
freezes at lower temperatures due to impurities.
Also, the complexities of how cold weather "feels" are even harder than
meteorology. That's just in the RW. I'm Scottish and I found the massively
subzero Minnesotan Winter more pleasant than the "dreech" 0 +/- 2 degrees
weather I was brought up with. Large bodies of water never froze, even in
supposedly harsh Winters.
I apologise to the Americans but I haven't a clue what those numbers are in
Fahrenheit. RQ was all SI units why not HQ?
Delecti, never need bother in his low lying basin. It might feel horrible,
due to the humidity being high, but the actual temperature wouldn't lead to
large scale freezing. I'd love to pin Greg down to actual temperatures for
