Given what our neighbors to the north have experienced, it would be unseemly to whine. Still, this week’s arctic blast has challenged us. For example, how can we resist the tasty goodies in our pantries, especially the last of the cookies?
Of course, you can always channel your energies into a dandy craft project. Australia’s oldest man, 109-year-old “Alfie” Date, knits sweaters to protect penguins who were drenched in an oil spill. The sweaters minimize the amount of oil the birds ingest while preening.
The best approach may be to embrace the situation, like these red pandas at the Cincinnati Zoo, who are making the rounds on the morning news shows today.
Enjoy the ongoing “weekend,” which is now at 7 days and counting.
