Winter slapped us in the face this morning!

Yesterday there were flurries in the air for a good chunk of the day, flurries, not accumulating snow. A seasonal feel, if a fleeting one.

This morning? As I drove to work, the thermometer in my car showed a very chilly 11 degrees Fahrenheit, converting to -11.6666667 degrees Celsius. Now isn't that interesting? I knew that the temperature scales match at negative 40 degrees, but I didn't realize there was a positive to negative flip (an almost backwards match) at 11 degrees.

But brrr... cold! And I live in a relatively mild section of the northeast thanks to the ocean influence.
