    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.

    Precisely why I have no desire to live in Alaska. Visit in the summer maybe, but not live there. Too cold! On the plus side, today we were 20 degrees warmer than we were 2 days ago, so things are more back to normal. Of course by the weekend we're supposed to be in the 40's. Only in Illinois can you have a 53 degree (Fahrenheit) temperature swing in 7 days!

    Shoot more film.
    There are eight ways to put a slide into a projector tray. Seven of them are wrong.

    Cue Martha and the Vandellas singing "Heat Wave".

    Above 0F today; first time in a while. Didn't bother to zip the coat. Supposed to reach 30deg in a few days - it will spoil us.

    They are probably used equally.

    I saw 50+ degrees swing in less than 16 hours here just a few days ago.

    Just saw on Yahoopravda--for any of you folks up there who want to get your name in the record books right up there with Sir Hillary, why don't you go climb Niagra Falls? That's wild.
