Polar Vortex 2019

Not to be confused with Polar Vortices from preceding years.  This one means business.  More significant because it’s here, right now.  The other ones are past history.

Polar Vortex 2019, pushing all Super Bowl LIII hype aside.  Chill factors of 50 below zero expected in Minnesota.  Serious cold, that requires precautions be taken.

Swimming pools are currently filled to capacity in Australia.  It is mid-summer in the Southern Hemisphere.  They are having a heat wave with daytime temperatures of one-hundred degrees.

Which do I prefer?  Something between these two extremes.  I don’t do well in either extreme.  I worked outside in the Upper Midwest for almost 30 years.  Not accustomed to these conditions anymore.
