Whoa Nelly!

Northern New England

Southern New England

The lowest temperature we saw on the thermometer last night was -8 F (-22 C). But it must have dropped even further overnight. These two screenshots are from the New England Cable News, NECN, website. To have Cape Cod (the little hook shaped peninsula in the lower right of the bottom image) at -6 F (-21 C) is incredibly unusual. But the folks up in the northernmost parts of Maine were at -52 F (-46 C)!!!

If nothing else, I hope this helps my regular readers from the Southern Hemisphere feel a little more comfortable with their summer temperatures!

Oooo, that's quite cold really. A bit too cold I think.
I trust all your pipes are safe and unburst!

Hi DMM -
Well said! It is a bit too cold!
Yes, our pipes are fine.
Thanks for asking.
You try to stay cool and I'll try to stay warm!

Hi Papamoka -
Who'da thunk that 14 degrees above zero on Nantucket would be considered balmy!
I know it's January in New England, but this winter has been crazy!
Stay as warm as you can...

OH. MY. WORD!!!!! I'm loving summer so much more after that! I would just about die in those temperatures. I definitely wouldn't venture outside the front door!!! Stay warm!

Hi Sue -
Hey, if reporting our frigid weather helps you appreciate your summer, then that's a good thing!

It's been so cold, we haven't even wanted to go out snowshoeing! But this week should be more seasonable.
