This is not what you want to wake up to, as my son did yesterday (the bottom temperature is the outside temperature.)
This is -30.8 C, for those outside the United States.
Only the brave throw back the colors to face the day without complaint, when your thermometer reads that low. In upstate New York, we wonder at people who deal with these temperatures for much of the winter, and admire them. Then we go back to complaining about the weather.
At my house, it was only -8 F (-22 C). It hasn't been that cold for us, we figure, in about 15 years.
Spring, right now, is invisible. But soon, sap will start to flow in the trees again. The tips of their branches will glow with a bright red. If we are fortunate, we will have a good maple syruping season as March progresses.
But for now, the only signs of spring are those singing birds.
The rest of nature is still locked in ice and snow.
One day it will be spring, but not just yet.
What is your weather like today?
