I love weather. It is endlessly variable and fascinating. This year it has provided us with plenty to do, not an easy winter this. Being plunged into the icy firmament of the far north makes us appreciate with fondness gentler times and as January nears it’s end we are left with still apprehensive questions which with time might soon be answered.
Just how low does the temperature have to fall before the pipes break in the basement?
For what length of time does a person have to stand outside without gloves before the fingers lose all sensation?
Will my car start in the morning?
Is it possible to throw hot water into the frosty ether without getting burned?
What will my heating bill look like at the end of the month?
Can I maintain the status quo of a two blanket bed?
Will the snow ever go away?
Is February going to be like January or will it be worse?
Will spring eventually come?
