A Bit Chilly

We're not talking the economy here or even the weather in California, but rather the current cold snap in Europe. I heard on the BBC that last night the U.K. was, in places, colder than Antarctica. Even allowing for global warming, that's still a rare occurrence, so I thought I'd post something in solidarity!

The picture above comes from Belarus (and is part of a set of images on the theme of "Icy Days & Nights" featured in the Boston Globe) where they are used to this sort of thing, but it's perhaps a warning that continued exposure to cold weather seems to do bad things to the brain.

Roll on summer. Round these parts the forecasters are promising us temperatures in the 68 to 70 degrees F range by Sunday. Now that's more like it!

(Oh, and I think I did very well to avoid any "man with his chopper in his hand" jokes, don't you? Bit of a struggle, mind ... )
