Kelvin

It’s not just a ship in the Star Trek re-boot universe. (Although that opening scene, with George Kirk sacrificing himself to save his crew and family… Still a two-tissue opening for me!)

It’s also a measure of temperature, as you should remember from high school chemistry or physics.

I was surprised today to notice that on the Google News page, not only can you get the local five-day weather forecast in Fahrenheit and Celsius, but also in Kelvin.

Since my brain is thinking in Fahrenheit, the Kelvin figures match what it feels like in SoCal these days.

A balmy 314K tomorrow? We might need the A/C to work overtime. If the power stays on. And we’re not burning.
