This morning’s frigid low, 22: Better inside than out!

Over the holidays in the past weeks, a couple of posts recalled the unseasonable balm of the early winter weather.

What a difference a week makes?

Well, the overnight low New Years Eve a week ago was right at forty degrees warmer than this morning’s bitter   registry of 22.  Brrrrrr.  And the overnight bottom-out tonight will again plummet into the low-twenties, pipe-bursting realm.

But cheerful solace resides in the extended forecast: just three days from now, highs will crawl back into the sixties with mid-to-upper seventies predicted by the following weekend.

So here’s to enduring the short-term deep-freeze, grateful meanwhile  for the cozy comforts of home and hearth.
