#6045: Damn, it's cold out there.

Weather site reported -4° when I got up. IR thermometer said -8.8° when pointed at the driveway. Regardless of how you figure the temperature, it's damned cold out there, the coldest it's been all year.

Global warming's to blame, of course.

Today I don't have to do that. I have two little chores I need to do, and otherwise I can do what I want.

Oh yeah.
