From an article that appeared yesterday highlighting weather conditions in the region in which I grew up:
Here’s the bad news:
Flint broke a 95-year-old record early Wednesday morning when the temperature plummeted to a frigid 19 below zero. The previous record? Minus 10, set in 1914, according to the National Weather Service.
Here’s the even worse news: We won’t seeing relief in the next few days.
Early morning lows Thursday are expected to be 9 below zero, with a 20 below zero wind chill. Highs on Thursday will reach 4 degrees.
Friday’s lows are expected to be 5 below, with wind chills reaching 25 below. Highs are expected to reach around 6 degrees.
Wind chills will reach 25 below again on Saturday.
Two quick observations: First, I’m really glad to be in Colorado right now. Second, I’m going to miss all the hype about global warming – which soon will sound really good as cries of the approaching Ice Age grow louder.
