A blogger in Massachusetts reports:
A friend writes, "On January 10, during the day, the coldest temperature that Spirit found on Mars was -15 Celsius. That's 5 F. It's actually colder here than it is on Mars."
I know all my friends and family back east are huddled around the fire, hoping to survive. But even though we're having warm weather out here, I've had strep all year. I spent the first four days of 2004 flat on my back. From the fifth until yesterday I was doing OK--at least making it to work, even if I was losing my voice. Yesterday it hit again. Hard.
There is no point in having nice weather if you're too sick to enjoy it.
