159/365 - Old And New

159/365 - Old And New, originally uploaded by Mikey Brick.

January 6, 2014. This photo does not illustrate the cold that was the outstanding feature of this day. The Polar Vortex settled on us, making a rare trip well south of the Arctic Circle. When I came to work, it was -12ºF, with a windchill around -50º. A third of our staff stayed home, along with what seemed like a higher percentage of the rest of the population. Walking into the wind was quite painful, and it's nice to know I will not likely ever encounter a day that cold again.
