I just have a brief post today. A year ago today I accepted a job with FOCUS as a campus missionary. It was one of the best decisions of my life. That is all. Well, almost all except for the following comment about the weather.
Side note: For some reason New Orleans weather is set as the default on my phone’s weather report. I just checked the weather. I have to share the ridiculous temperature disparity with you…it’s over 100 degree difference. That is, of course, if you count windchill…which I do.
After I saw this I obvi. texted Claire (who I went to visit in New Orleans) cause this is hilariously ridiculous. She texted back and said she shared that info with the whole bar.
March certainly came in like a lion…here’s hoping leaving like a lamb means consistent, positive temps–or warmer!
P.S. I hope today marks the day you make one of the best decisions of your life and apply to be a FOCUS missionary! 🙂
I’ve got to tell you, I’ve been doing some research. I’m still amazed that I didn’t realize until the end of January that this is one of Fargo’s colder winters. But, I wanted to know just how cold. All of my research was found in an article on the ABC station in Fargo. Is it official, scientific, and peer reviewed? No, of course not. But it’s straight up ridiculous. Here’s the top three quotes from that article from meteorologist Daryl Ritchison:
1) “This winter, if you’re 40 years old or younger, is the coldest winter you remember.”
2) “In fact, it’ll go down as the 17th coldest local winter on record.”
3) “We were below zero at some point in 65 of those 90 days.” (That is the months of December-Februrary.)
My least favorite quote from the article:
“My suspicion for the spring is March will finish below average. Noticeably.”
