Damn Cold

Generally, one of the advantages of living on the southwest Washington coast is that we tend to avoid weather extremes. The warmest month of the year is July with an average high of only 72 degrees. December and January are the coldest months with an average high for both months of 45 degrees.

Anytime the temperature goes really high or low, that is outside our norm and it's really outside the norm right now! In fact, the prediction is for lows in the teens for the next 2 nights with highs barely broaching the freezing mark.

I grant that, for most people in the country, this is no big deal because it IS that time of the year. However, if I had wanted to enjoy extremely cold weather, I would have moved to Minnesota!!
