That's how many degrees the high temperature of the day was today. Seven.

The last time I was in 7F [-14C] weather, I had enough clothes on to look like a football player. I don't even have that many clothes with me right now.

Of course, the last time I was in this cold of weather we were standing around outside for a couple hours at a time. And then standing around for more hours at night as it dipped well below 0.

Harbin, February 2006, Ice Festival. All those structures are made of ice. Nobody does grandiose like the Chinese.

Tomorrow I'm bringing the cold back to Boston. Excellent.
