Be careful out there

From the Borowitz Report at the New Yorker – dateline Minnepolis:

The so-called polar vortex caused hundreds of injuries across the Midwest today, as people who said “so much for global warming” and similar comments were punched in the face.

Stay safe, people.

The meteorology professor Davis Logsdon, of the University of Minnesota, issued a safety warning to residents of the states hammered by the historic low temperatures: “If you are living within the range of the polar vortex and you have something idiotic to say about climate change, do not leave your house.”

Say it to the mirror, or the dog.

    In my community they’re predicting a high of 39 degrees just a week after we had a low of -14. That’s a temperature shift of over 50 degrees in 7 days. If you just compare the highs it’s about 40 degrees or over 5 degrees a day. So much for “so much for global warming”.

    Wow, Alverant, that’s dramatic all right. Whereabouts are you? (very very approximately, I mean, of course)
