We are learning about it in schol right now, well last week. Lol A solar minimum happens every 11 years. The last solar minimum happened in 1997. This year it is supposed to be really cold. A solar minimum means there is a very low amount of high-level radiation. When there isnt a lot of high raditation, the Earth chills a little bit making it colder than previous years. I have never experienced anything below 10* but now it is -3* with a windchill of -30* Just wanted to share this with all of you guys. Dont stay outside too long because it will take your breathe away. Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays, Cody!!
