Tropical Imagination

Earlier this week, I was certain that the media was making up this whole polar vortex thing for ratings. Turns out, a polar vortex is a real weather pattern and the term has been around since 1853!

Schools closed. Water pipes burst. Historically low temperatures were recorded. Here in Pittsburgh, the temperature dropped to a record low of minus 9 degrees! Have you seen the panorama of the frozen city?

For those of us who aren’t fond of winter storms and cold snaps, there is some hope! With the winter solstice behind us, there is a bit more sunlight each day. And the first day of spring will be here soon too.
