The cold snap in a lot of the country this week has been making the news. Up here in the north we're used to that kind of thing, especially in the winter. Although I do wince a bit every time the ancient furnace fires up. I really don't want to see the heating bill when it comes.
Subzero Life Goes On in Saranac Lake, N.Y.
Think you've had a chilly week? While much of the nation has dealt with a real taste of winter, residents of Saranac Lake, N.Y., have been in the deep freeze.
Below-zero temperatures are the norm there in winter. But the 33 below zero morning this week had even longtime residents donning their extra-thick long johns.
Saranac Lake is a lovely place to visit in the summer. They make good maple syrup up there too.
