Humor on a Brisk Wisconsin day.
As we enjoy another brisk day in the office this week with occassional rounds to the rentals to thaw out a pipe or two my wife sent me this cute little cold weather comparison.
Amazingly the part attributed to Wisconsinites is not that far off on a few of the points. We did actually go out to the garage and find our winter jackets this week, and yes when the temperatures hit the 50's in the spring you will find a few sunbathers up near campus.
Cold vs. Cold - Keep warm wherever you live!

People in Miami all die. Wisconsin people close the windows.

40 below zero:

Have a great week, stay warm, and enjoy the winter fun.
