YIKES!My nose hairs are crackling in sympathy!
Me too, Martha, and I haven't gone outside yet. At noon here, it's 'warmed up' to -21. It broke the record for the date, got down to -36. When it gets this cold not much works, house has gotten up to 58 not, and I'm not even curious if the truck would start.
Catching up and totally agreed with your little essay on "freedom". I'll give Harrison another try on you recommendation. A similar author here is Nathan Jorgenson a favorite of mine. As to temps the national weather report always seems to mention our Canadian border town of International Falls. No wonder the outlanders think we who live here are crazy.
