The Great White North

February 5, 2014

Back up to Spokane again, and boy howdy what a week I picked to come up!  Woke up to temps below 0, with a wind chill in the neighborhood of -20.

I know, I know, those of you who live in really cold places may scoff and say, “ah, that’s nothing!”

Well, to you I say scoffing goes both ways.  You’re the damned fool who lives in a place like that.  Give that a ponder.

Anyway, looks like it’ll get colder tomorrow.

    I can feel your pain. The temperature here on the Big Island had plummeted to 66 by 6 AM this morning. I couldn’t find my Eddie Bauer goose down parka and had to brave the frigid conditions until about 6:15 AM, when the temp went up to 72 and from there up to about 82 for the rest of the day.

    You’re killing me, Bruce!

    We’re riding the climatic roller coaster here in TX right now. It’s the final throes of winter fighting with spring, and the battle is getting pretty fierce. We’ll have freezing rain and highs barely out of the 30s one day, and the next I’m getting a suntan on horseback in the mid 70s. Temps have already gone today from around 57 at sunrise to the low 40s and it’s barely past noon.
