Friday Open Thread – January 11th

Tomb of the Unknown ChristmasOur Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

    Cold is a relative thing ya know….

    At 65 degrees, Arizonans turn on the heat. People in Minnesota plant gardens.

    At 60, Californians shiver uncontrollably. People in Minnesota sunbathe.

    At 50, Italian & English cars won’t start. People in Minnesota drive with the windows down..

    At 40, Georgians don coats, thermal underwear, gloves, wool hats. People in Minnesota throw on a flannel shirt.

    At 35, New York landlords finally turn up the heat. People in Minnesota have the last cookout before it gets cold.

    At 20, People in Miami all die. Minnesotans close their windows.

    At 0, Californians fly away to Mexico . People in Minnesota get out their winter coats.

    At 10 below zero, Hollywood disintegrates. The Girl Scouts in Minnesota are selling cookies door to door.

    At 20 below, Washington DC runs out of hot air. (Ya think? Nah.). People in Minnesota let their dogs sleep indoors.

    At 30 below, Santa Claus abandons the North Pole. Minnesotans get upset because they can’t start the snowmobile.

    At 40 below, ALL atomic motion stops. People in Minnesota start saying…”Cold enough for ya, eh?”

    At 50 below, heck freezes over. Minnesota public schools will open 2 hours late.


    During the 18 years we recently spent in MN, we saw temps down to 40 below, and I can vouch for the accuracy of most of the statements down to the point. Now the schools opening two hours late at 50 below, I’m not sure of–for two reasons: never saw it 50 below; and the fact is, we did see schools closed (all day even) for blizzard conditions at 10 below, but that wasn’t because it was cold: it was because the gravel roads were iced over so thick there was no traction even on the gravel for the school buses, and they didn’t want the students to die. So it wasn’t because of the cold.

    The rest of it is pretty accurate. T-shirts in the parking lot at the mall at 10 above or 10 below was not unusual. Of course the kids had coats in their cars: they’re not stupid, and they didn’t want to die, in case they ended up off the road somewhere. But there’s no need to wear that heavy thing into the store, where the heat is probably on.
