I liked it inside my house when I woke up this morning.
I was cozy.
Things were warm.
Outside... things were not.
You might say, "Andrew, it's January in [my state] too... It's always cold in January."
I might say, "Is it so cold that they CLOSED THE SCHOOLS?!"
I'm from Pennsylvania. I've never experienced this phenomenon.
Here's a little clip from the Wikipedia article on the North Pole.
- "Winter (January) temperatures at the North Pole can range from about −43 °C (−45 °F) to −26 °C (−15 °F), perhaps averaging around −34 °C (−29 °F)."
This morning, the temperature around the twin cities ranged from 3°F to -14°F.
You know what it was a few hours north of here in good ol' Minnesota? -46°F !
I suggest you take another look at that temperature-range for the North Pole.
Sheesh! Whose dopey idea was this?!
In other news, I've quite finely developed my skill at disrobing a clementine in a single tidy strip.
