The north wind doth blow

I've been waiting for this moment. The Observatory has issued its first official Cold Weather Warning of the season. Here is an excerpt from said warning. Brace yourself.

           People are advised to put on warm clothes and to avoid
           adverse health effects due to the cold weather.
           If you must go out, please avoid prolonged exposure to
           wintry winds.

          Make sure heaters are safe before use, and place them away
          from any combustibles. Do not light fires indoors as a means
          to keep warm.

Ok, I've got out my scarf, gloves, and have responsibly locked away my wooden furniture to prevent myself from creating a spontaneous indoor bonfire in an irresponsible fit of chilliness! Bravely, I turn to face the arctic weather predictions for the next few days:

No, really! Single-digit temperatures! Brr.

  1. First I'm thinking I heard it never gets cold there then I'm looking at the weather chart and thinking if that's cold then I'll love it.
