A few years ago, some of you may recall me writing about a small town in northeast Oklahoma had a temperature change in less than a week of 100 degrees . Went from like 30 below to 70 above. Now that's a change. Long-johns are in order on the east coast.

Talk to my kid brother yesterday who lives near Boston ( Tauton-Mansfield ). Pretty cold back there .

Tom, lows tomorrow are -1°, windchill -20°.  By next Thursday forecasts are in mid-50's.  Like a roller-coaster.
