    The last two nights have been very cold for Florida. The temperature dipping into the low thirties in central Florida with a strong wind. Three dog nights but alas I have only two dogs.

    Oh no, what are you going to do? There's imbalance in the universe!

    Been cold as heck around here in Minnesota the last three days. Coldest was yesterday at about -22*F, which is great because the Emerald Ash Borer, the bug that's been killing all of our ash trees, might be decimated by as much as 80% due to the freeze. Today was nicer at around 0*F when I woke up, and warming up to a high of about 9*F today. Tomorrow almost 20*F they say, and finally on Friday about 30*F, which will provide a nice respite for those who have been stuck in the cold for a long time.

    Steve.
    To further mix things up, do you also call Centigrade Celsius? Here, Celsius has become more common. I always called it Centigrade, but now Celsius slips in sometimes.

    By the way, Centigrade Celsius is the name of the James Bond villain who created the Polar Vortex...

    Sorry to hear that, as the trees will be damaged if you now get some real cold. On the other hand, enjoy your warm weather.

    Sorry to bring this thing up again. But I'm getting good. A Chevy 4x4 longbed pickup load of trees cut, dragged out of the woods, loaded, brought home, cut up into sections, split, and on the pile in 3 hours flat. And we're not talking about hydraulic splitters; we're talking about a 12lb maul. On the days I have a nice haul, I splurge that night. By 11pm this house is going to be 86 degrees in here. Going to watch a horror picture on Hulu and stoke the Ashley.

    That cold weather in the US story is funny to people in interior Alaska, where -15f or whatever is warm for winter...

    Here in Fairbanks it's been a pretty mild winter thus far, with the t just hitting -40 once (this time last year it'd been hanging out there a lot!) Snow while not above normal is around normal, so have gotten in some good snow-shoveling, snow-play, etc. Trees covered and beautiful. Right now it's +11f/-11c, as it's been for almost a week. Overcast I think, because it's so warm. One benefit of all this warm weather is some nice crystals have formed on the snow, trees, etc.

    More normal in the -30 to -35f low range forecast for the weekend - though I doubt any local mayors will outlaw driving, and pretty sure cnn won't send crews to ask for an exaggerated wind-chill maximum low...

    Winter is beautiful if snowy and cold.
