Things have been fine here. Was -13 F in my city at one point, but my employer let us go early Monday and canceled work today, so I just lounged around at home. Sure, it's cold, but not bad enough for people to freak like they do. Of course, now we're looking at temps hitting 40 F this weekend - but hey, this is Northeastern Ohio, not unusual for us.
Even we are saying, "Poor Buggers!"Quote:
In Australia (sunny and warm...) we are seeing a lot of media coverage about this 'polar vortex' that has engulfed, among other places across the US, Lake Michigan in Chicago,
Well, the few in that wretched place that have jobs... ;)Quote:
people skiing to work in Detroit (!).
I'll bet the penguins in the zoo are digging it, though...Quote:
And Chicago.... is minus 26 celsius ... colder than the South Pole? Quelle horreur...
A relatively balmy (windless) +6f this morning! :)
More freaking rain this afternoon!
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. :)
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.
