For my military knowledge, though I'm plucky and adventury,
Has only been brought down to the beginning of the century;
But still in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral,
I am the very model of a modern Major-General.

Arctic air is as dry as desert air.

The cold air should be in Ottawa by the coming weekend, looks like it will be 'extended'.

At least the rain will stop, time to sharpen the skates to go to the store. Damn Chinooks.

Greta Thunberg met with Jane Goodall and others in Davos, Switzerland last week. Greta was able to speak directly to global elites gathered in the Swiss Alps for the World Economic Forum (WEF), urging them to work towards meaningful climate action in order to "safeguard the future living conditions for humankind."

Chicago’s record for coldest temperature ever could fall as polar vortex has city ‘in the crosshairs’

ne of the coldest air masses in years will envelop the Midwest and the Northeast this week bringing potentially life-threatening low temperatures to the Chicago area that will feel even harsher in tandem with strong winds.

In Chicago, the coldest temperatures of the year will arrive midweek. After seeing a high around 34 on Monday at O’Hare International Airport, temperatures will drop to near zero before the end of the day, according to the National Weather Service. By Tuesday night, temperatures are expected to take another plunge, to 23 below zero, flirting with Chicago’s coldest temperature ever: minus 27 on Jan. 20, 1985.

Temperatures are forecast to inch up to a daytime high of about minus 14 on Wednesday — the first subzero high temperature in five years and the coldest winter high ever recorded in Chicago — before dipping, again, to about minus 21 overnight. The coldest daytime high in Chicago was minus 11 on Christmas Eve 1983.

For younger Chicagoans, the burst of Arctic air set to overtake the city this week could be one of the coldest days of their lives. For Generation Z, this week’s predicted low temperatures have only two rivals: minus 16 on Jan. 6, 2014, and minus 19 on Feb. 3, 1996.

Cold enough to freeze all the whining in the bottom of a lie barrel.
