    it was -31 this morning at my house. the sun is out now but it is only -17 here at work. feels like a heat wave after this morning. we have ice on our metal roof at home. the ice contracted at a different rate than the roof, according to Mr Wizard, my hubby, which caused a couple of really loud booms like a bombs going off last night and again this morning. it shook the whole house.

    that's around -13 or -14F?? cold

    -31 at my house and driving in, one town down the road that is always colder was at -34. everything was stiff and brittle. didn't crack the windshield but the roof/ice thing was enough for me. it is going way up to 20 on Tuesday, yippie!

    the warming melts the ice, the ice mixes with sea water, fresh water and sea water act differently so the warm water/cold water exchange that goes on in the ocean gets messed up and the warm doesn't make it up where it used to. that's global warming. most think it means we will get really hot, not so, we will get really cold in parts of the world that weren't so cold. if I thought hair spray would get VT up into the 40's during the winter, I would look like a Texas beauty queen with a pile of it sprayed on everyday.
