Going on two weeks of Arctic temperatures now. Looking at the winds aloft today there seems to be no end in sight. 23 degrees is the peak most days with nights somewhere between -2 and 9 degrees. People are getting tense. I can sense it. The air is so thick with with smog during the day the sky is orange. It’s worse than the summer of forest fires several years back. I suspect there is a HEX hanging over the west (see photo below). Nothing to do but work and spend endless evenings in the pain cave on the indoor trainer. No end in sight….
