I fear that our weather forecast of 68° was a bit optimistic. Current conditions at 1:26 pm MST are 45°, sprinkles, 12 mph wind, and an IC (irrigation chill) of 23°. What? You’ve never heard of irrigation chill? IC is derived from this simple mathematical formula:
Temperature – Wind speed – Square inches of wet, muddy clothing = Irrigation chill
The fact that the acronym “IC” sounds like “icy” is pure coincidence.
I have to cut this post short, as it’s time to go change the water. In the event that I succumb to hypothermia, readers are simply asked to contribute any extra wetsuits that they may have on hand to the irrigator of their choice.
