No Green in Sight!

You gotta love Minnesota. One year ago today the temp officially hit 80 degrees at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. However, here in the scenic St. Croix River Valley we are lower and thus trap warmer air so our thermometer reached 83 degrees. 

Fast forward 365 days.  This morning’s number, five degrees.  But we’re not complaining.  We will take the cold over the oppressive heat any day.

Did you know heat kills more people than cold.  Read on:

“Actually, extreme heat is more deadly, since it kills more people on average every year than hurricanes, tornadoes, flash floods, and lightning combined.

When the temperature outside is 100F or higher and the humidity approaches 40%, the heat index soars from anywhere between 110F and 120F. Heat poses a significantly greater hazardous threat than the cold . . .”

Whatever the temp in your 
little cornerof the world, 
enjoy your holiday!
