Temperature Relativity 

My neighbor left me a message this afternoon telling me it was -63 degrees at my place in Fairbanks this morning. 

The thermometer here in Florida read +84. That’s a 147 degree difference!  If the -63F is accurate, and I have no doubt it is, that would tie the coldest temperature I have experienced in Alaska. 

The really sad thing is that I had to manufacture sympathy, because all I could think of is how thrilled I am to have missed it.
