Weather Notes

A few years ago when I was over in the USA I bought an outdoor thermometer like the one in the picture. I was struck by the ridiculous range of temperatures it showed; the usual range of British temperatures is zero to twenty C, anything outside that is cause for major news coverage.

Well, this morning is the lowest I’ve ever seen it register. A brisk -7 Celsius, around +20 F. And yes, its headline news on the news.
