A little math lesson for you

Where I am:

Where I will be in about 30 hours:


Here's the math (updated to actually be correct) :

83°F – (-23°F) = 105°F difference between the two locales.

After setting two record lows in 2010 (yeah, that's 2 out of 4 days) for my area, I'm ready for a break.

That happened to my Dad last year, but in the opposite direction (southern California to Minnesota).

Enjoy your trip!

Wow. I thought temperatures like that only existed in the lab freezer! EEK!
I'll be enjoying my 70-degree weather here through January. ;)

Hold on...let's see...two out of the four days of 2010...that's 2 into four...carry the five...

Damn, sir, that's almost 50% of the time!

Don't forget the spf10000, that MN white skin will burn to a crisp!

Actually, -22F + 83F = 61F. What you really want to do is subtract them:
83F - (-22F) = 105F.

Not trying to be a stickler, but it is a "math lesson"!

Idiot!!!! I was so excited to have a witty post, I forgot all about how reality works.

Thanks Tom, I changed it.
