Four Degrees Fahrenheit

NPR just said that it's going to be so cold tomorrow that you should just stay indoors. And that after a conversation with Zed last night about how in Los Angeles he sometimes has to put on his adidas jacket.

Looking at this forecast for the coming week, the high of 4 degrees on Monday reminds me of the only time I've experienced weather that cold. We were driving back from a Grotto trip to Wisconsin. It was two in the morning, and the Lincoln Continental needed gas. I got out to fill it up, but I didn't have my gloves on. When I touched the metal handle of the gas pump, I felt like I had been shot in the hand.

It's supposed to be 81 and sunny here this weekend.

It's sunny here, too, but about 80 degrees colder.
