Spell has been broken! Exactly a week to the day since the deep freeze began, the icy grip has loosened. Woke up today at a comparatively balmy minus 22 (compared to yesterday mornings minus 32), and only going down to minus 25 tonight. About the same tomorrow, and then continuing the downward trend on Sunday into the minus teens and all the way to near zero by Wednesday! Overall, been a pretty damned nice winter so far, and really, only about 6 weeks left.
