Yes, according to some meteorologists, anyway.
Are they kidding? Or crazy? Or just the usual alarmists? You know, I’m going with alarmists. I swear to God those people couldn’t tell a tornado from a funnel cake. Nevertheless, temperatures are expected to drop like a stone in the Midwest and Eastern U.S. next week. Overnight temperatures might — let me repeat that for you, might — drop into the 30s, but more likely the 40s or 50s.
That’s a far cry from polar, wouldn’t you say? As someone who endured the Winter of 2013-14, I’ll tell you this: 30º is positively tropical. Even in July. Oh, pool boy, be a dear and bring me a Mai Tai. No one who’s felt a stiff sub-zero wind pelting their chapped and frosted face would call 30º ‘polar’ — no one except a weather forecaster. They’ll do anything for attention, the glory hounds.
Have you ever noticed that while they’re predicting these calamitous conditions and certain doom, not a hair’s out of place. There isn’t a crease or a wrinkle in their perfectly pressed clothing. You’d think there’d be some sign of panic or agitation, at the very least some evidence of a tizzy, but no. They might’ve just come from the spa or the dry cleaner.
So just ignore them. The end is not near. Keep calm and carry on.
