How Do I Convert Celsius to Fahrenheit?

SEATTLE - Those who travel back and forth to Canada, or other countries on the metric system, will find temperatures in Celsius.

The official way to convert C to F is to multiply C by 1.8, and then add 32. But if you'd like a quick way to get a rough guesstimate and give your brain a break from multiplying by 1.8, you can instead take your C reading, double it, and then add 30. It'll get you within a few degrees. (20 degrees C * 1.8 = 36, add 32, = 68 degrees. Quick way: 20*2 = 40, plus 30 = 70 degrees.)

To go from F to C, you take F, subtract 32, then divide by 1.8. Or the easy way: Subtract 30, then take half.

YouNews Hawkcited! Hawkcited!
Ten days ago, Douglas Walthers and Sheila Shannon put their creative heads together and wrote a bouncy new song for Seahawks fan "Hawkcited" - which was based on Doug asking Sheila about the Superbowl and saying "So, are you 'Hawk-cited?" Within ten days, not only was a song written and produced with the help of world class Bear Creek Recording Studio, but then Jerry Streeter at Blue Stellar Productions jumped in - and a music video was created! The story of how this video came to be is just another story of how devoted Seattle Seahawk Fans are to their team!
