I just checked Google weather and it is a whopping 10 degrees outside. You want to know what the sad part is? I think this is a “warm up” considering the high was -6 yesterday. You want to know what else? I am now pro-global warming. Anything that can help us change the climate of this ice box of a state is good news as far as I’m concerned. I just filled up my tank and am planning on letting my truck run 24 hours straight to pump as much CO2 into the atmosphere as I can. I don’t see how that could go wrong at all.
Seriously, though, I have to wonder why the heck I live here. I used to be tolerant of the cold and argued with Southerners that living in 100+ degree heat was silliness. Now I have changed my mind. The simple reason for this is that you can easily die if you do not find heated shelter or have proper clothing in a short amount of time in this kind of weather. In hot summers down south you get thirsty and can’t sleep. No big whoop.
