The Magic Valley is Not in Hell
So, it's official. It's Hell is Freezing Over Day. Considering the fact that I'm debating with my husband about unpacking the kayaks and he's arguing that golfing would be better, I think we're in a bit of an unusual place for this time of year in our area. Though when I look at the average, aren't we about right? Sure, maybe a few degrees above normal, but still, about right.
Then there are OTHER places. The actual Hell on Earth has frozen over in the Midwest. Antarctica is a high of -27 degrees or so during their summer right now. Fargo, North Dakota is a respectable -3 degrees. Minneapolis, Minnesota at a -2 degrees.
Des Moines, Iowa is looking at 9 degrees, but that doesn't include their wind chills. The weather in Iowa on Wednesday was so cold even Antifreeze was FREEZING. Yeah, that's possible apparently during a Polar Vortex.
Portland, Maine comes in at 16 degrees. Manchester, New Hampshire is 17 degrees. Yet again, I'm loving the Magic Valley! Welcome to 43 degrees and sunny!
