    A Polar Vortex is coming!

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/...u-s-next-week/

    "But make no mistake, in parts of the Great Lakes and Upper Midwest getting dealt the chilliest air, hoodies and jeans will be required. Highs in this region could well get stuck in the 50s and 60s especially where there is considerable cloud cover."

    Re: A Polar Vortex is coming!

    Everything has to sensationalized. It used to be referred to as a "cold spell". Now it is the more ominous sounding "Polar Vortex" (echo sound effect implied)


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    Well the polar vortex is a real thing that always exists. This is just part of it deepening and running further south than normal.

    Re: A Polar Vortex is coming!

    This summer is starting to remind me of 04. Lots of rain and not hot at all. Remember many days that summer wearing sweatshirt while scouting fields.

    We are rolling into tassel time so cool days ahead are a great sight to me!!! Just need some heat in August and September.
