The Dangers of Wishing You Were Somewhere Else

One day last week, I was trying to make myself feel better during the frigid cold. So I did a little internet research. Seemed like a good idea at the time.

Here in our new hometown it was -11 when we got up on the 12th of January. Over the course of the day the temperature dropped to -18. Nice, huh?

On the same day at McMurdo, Antarctica it was 37. Need I say more?


  1. He he he he, ah yes. The chill of winter can often be a bit harsher when those places which are supposed to be much colder than us are in infact almost 50 degrees warmer than us. Brrrrr. I think it's time we moved to a warmer climate... what do you think?

  2. You know it gets warm where you are sometimes. It never ever warms up here, we are always on the edge of cold, and always chilly :-( And we don't have good heaters :-(
