Re: NE weather was-Snow, Eva?

Very good. Reminds me, for some reason, of that folk song "My Lover Was A Logger [And Not Just An Ordinary Bum]"--"at 100 degrees below zero, he buttoned up his coat."

Right about that Kitty. Last month Maine was warmer than both my
daughters experienced in MD & IN. Very strange. our arctic air should
come to an end by friday or saturday when western mini warm fronts will
be stronger than the arctic fronts so we warm up to above 0:. It is now
-8: outside at midnight & time for bed.

For a change we have a bit of snowcover here in neIN. We did last year,
too, but it was even colder here then. Before that we had little snow
and always had a January thaw.  Sort of makes you rethink this global
warming stuff, eh?
