…hunker down

Well, we’re almost all the way through January and back at a much more tolerable frigid. Many may have even dared to dream of spring. Well you optimists, you, I have some bad news.

Yes, just when we got accustomed to the balmy temperatures of the mid-twenties to lower-thirties, and dared to cut our layers down to three, it seems the polar vortex may be making an encore performance.

Luckily, this time we’re all seasoned bone-chilling cold veterans. Right?

No more stupid moves like throwing boiling hot water at our friends, or into the wind when we decide to test the boiling water trick. Right?

We’ll all appropriately layer and wear appropriate footwear this time around. Right?

Don’t worry, you still have time to prepare yourself emotionally. Cry your tears now, because subzero temps and misty do not mix well.

Polar Vortex: The Sequel will be here in approximately 11-15 days, just in time for the Super Bowl…in New York…outside…have fun you guys.


TIME: The Polar Vortex Is Probably Coming Back

    I have begun construction of my Eskimo sweat lodge in preparation. I will purchase my bread, milk and eggs a bit closer to the dates…


  2. I remember the last polar vortex.

    I tell my daughter “oh my sweet summer child. You know nothing of winter. When the snow piles hundreds of feet high, and the White Walkers come on their spiders of ice.”

    And she says to me “Dude, stop being so dramatic. I remember the last polar vortex too.”

    Thanks for the warning though. I promise to dress in layers and bundle up my pug when she has to go out.

    Stay warm, stay safe.
