    Brr!

    21 below zero on my deck this morning.
    It's wood dust. Saw dust would suggest a problem.

    We currently have -12.3. It was sub-zero all day yesterday and all night.

    Yup. Same here. Our high temperature was -10 yesterday. The warming trend starts tonight, with a gradual warming to 50* by Monday. I can't wait for the flooding.

    Blame Canada? The polar Vortex starts in northern canada and the cold air sweeps down from there.

    We bottomed out at -13 this morning (what a difference 150 miles makes!) with a wind chill of -35. Took the pooch out for a walk and it really wasn't too bad, except my glasses iced over and I couldn't see where the heck I was going (and our pooch is not cut out for guide-dog duty).

    To add to the fun, the gas company issued an alert last night, asking everyone to turn down their thermostats to 62. They had a fire in one of their facilities, and they're concerned about running short of gas - shut down a bunch of GM and Ford plants to conserve.

    I'll take the flooding - bring on the warm-up!

    I heard a joke that went something like this:

    Due to the cold weather, the performance of Hamilton had to be cancelled. Once again, Brrrr killed Hamilton.

    It's a balmy -9 F here now. I'm also in part of Michigan that's affected by the Consumers Energy compressor station fire. It's kinda hard for me to turn down the thermostat as we normally keep it close to where they've asked us to lower it to.

    But I did find out why we have this cold weather:

    The TV weatherman said that the cold was "going away" and we would be warming up the next 48 hours. Of course the arrows on the map had the cold weather that was leaving us is headed straight to Rod Sheridan's house.

    Good idea, apparently the country to the south of the wall pays for it. That's a good thing as we couldn't afford it, once you convert that $30,000,000,000 US to Canadian you need to use scientific notation.........Rod.

    If Canada paid for it what would it be about $300
