    Hell (Michigan) has frozen over. That's gotta mean something.

    Several years ago, our schools were shut down in the same school year for snow, heat (first time ever, no AC in our schools nor should there be) & high winds. The last snow day (5/1) was only several months from the heat day in August.

    My last year in Minnesota ('96) it reached -60. I was working on a framing crew then and we were sheathing a roof (of course the -60 was overnight) Will be curious if it actually gets that low this time.

    Growing up I recall many long stretches when the high never passed -10. Still ran morning and evening trap lines. Just needed to bundle up and wear ski goggles. Also, needed to thaw out at the barrel stove upon returning. I don't miss it a bit.

    wow, where's that?
    It was high 30s in Jax this morning. I was cutting a crepe myrtle way back today, but I couldn't stay out there long. For god's sake, it was in the 30s! Well, the 40s. No man should be out in that.
    No Floridian, at least.

    I'll take the heat in Florida
    I am a long way from an expert but I always thought you had to wait till after the last freeze to cut one back.

    55° and sunny up here this week. Practically summer. I went to the beach. Supposed to drop near freezing by Sunday though.

    It’s amazing how incredibly cold below zero is. Was minus yesterday.

    For years I’ve heard people bad mouth Herr Fahrenheit’s system but I think it’s brilliant. It defines the limits outside of which people start to die.
