Uh uh, nope. This is Utah these days, as well. Heavy snow in the Wasatch foothills is pushing
animals down into Salt Lake City limits and the suburbs, and more and more city dwellers and their
pets are finding moose in their yards.

Many many years ago my sister married an Air Force guy and they lived not far from London, near the
Channel. She was there three years, and got real tired of the cold and dampness. However, one day
they had this incredible heat wave. It got up to 65F and everybody put on their swim suits and went
to the beach to enjoy the warmth.
Some years later, but still many years ago, I was working with a guy who had been drafted into the
Army (at the height of the Vietnam thing) and sent to Hawaii to be a typist (he typed 50wpm - with
two fingers!). One day they had an incredible cold spell, and everybody got out their fur coats to
try to keep warm. You guessed it, it got down to 65F!
