Trio of Winter Events

This photograph by Barbara Mourglia shows what has been going on around here. Snow and cold and cold and snow. Three times. I do not know how much snow we received in total, a respectable amount, I think. More than a foot. What I am sure about is that we’ve had some cold nights. Sixteen below zero (Fahrenheit) one morning (that is twenty-seven below zero Celsius for the more progressive types.) Tomorrow, February the 13th, will be the 106th anniversary of the lowest temperature ever recorded in the state of Arkansas, which is -29 (Fahrenheit.) (Disclaimer: Conversion of Fahrenheit to Celsius accomplished with help of the National Weather Service. I am unable to confidently vouch for this conversion. All I remember is that 212 is actually 100 and 0 is actually 32.)
