…and then there’s COLD

It’s chilly here. I walked Jasper just before daylight, and it was -6°F (-21°C), with a windchill of -12 (-24). No walk for sweet B and me today.

But New England’s current cold wave pales compared to what’s happening back in the Midwest. When A walks his 3/4 mile to work in Rochester, Minnesota this morning, it will be through a temp of -24°F (-31°C), with a windchill of -49 (-45). He grew up in upstate New York, went to school in New Hampshire, and has spent time in Greenland, but I’ll bet he’s never been out in temps approaching these. He may want to wear his hat.
