Celsius is cooler

This is not really about international shipping, but those of us involved in international shipping must always contend with temperatures if both Celsius and Fahrenheit.

In Kansas we are experiencing a heat wave which may rival the dust bowl era of the 1930's, reaching 111 degrees Fahrenheit the other day.

This quote in today's local paper (The Wichita Eagle) made me smile.

From John Pilla of Spirit AeroSystems at a Tuesday news conference

"We decided to change to Celsius reading here because 40 degrees sounds a lot better than 104."
