...It's highly overrated. -6°F this morning! That's -78 Centrifugal, of course, and cold enough to freeze your socks clean off either way. TV weatherkins are begging viewers to "wear several layers of loose clothing" and that's just to stay inside and lookit the various flavors of timesuck screens -- if you actually go outdoors in suboptimal clothing, you've got about ten minutes before frostbite begins to set in. In another ten, the synovial fluid in your joints freeze and you're stuck in whatever pose you were in until someone comes along with a teakettle-ful of warm water and thaws you out.
We did get a little sun the last couple of mornings, hooray!
