Don’t you wonder when you watch the news and they give you a new term, like “Polar Vortex” and you scratch your head and think, I’m XX years old. How have I never heard of that? I grew up in NY about 40 minutes from where I live now. I vividly remember the shopping centers with the mounds of snow pushed up against the tall lamps in the parking lots for weeks at a time. These days, that rarely happens. We have snow for a day, next day is sunny … eventually it melts or it builds up again but never like when I was a kid. They said Global Warming I think. So this year, we’re getting slammed with snow and cold. Every part of the country is behaving weirdly weather-wise.
And suddenly they’re using this term, “Polar Vortex.” Seriously. Why have I never heard of it before? Don’t ask me why I find it weird but I do.
