Tweva – thanks for the article. MN sets records somewhere just about every year – hot or cold so this doesn’t keep me up at night, BUT it definitely should not be discounted as you have pointed out. I think that you are right on paying close attention. If you can pattern this you’ll be better than 95% of the weather people on TV!
Gypsy – man that’s cold, and in May! I had a friend of mine tell me about similar cold in Wisconsin also. I asked if he was retiring (from military) and going back and he said “NO WAY!” We’re a bit (okay a lot) spoiled here in SoCal where it rarely freezes and rarely gets triple digits F. That good weather costs alot though! Housing, utilities, land, gas, taxes – you pay for it just like a vacation to Hawaii!
Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property... mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.
