I don't know about other places in the world, but here in northern Ohio
the weather isn't really bizarre. It has been colder than the past two
years, but it's nothing that I have not experienced before. The week
before last it was -11 and 0 on two consecutive days. That is very cold.
But, when I watch the weather report they tell me the coldest day
on record and there was a colder day. They tell me that it has not
been this cold since 1994 which was twenty years ago. So, yes, we are
having some very cold weather, but it's not like it has never been this
cold before. I just hate it when the utility bills come.
