Arctic = Melting; North Da-ka-ka-kota = FREEZING!

Kudos to NB for the heads-up! The reason the Arctic is so warm is because all the cold has descended southward on us and the rest of the world this winter!

Bismarck Tribune - North Dakota News - Record-setting cold hits eastern North Dakota:

Frigid Arctic air coming down from Canada broke records in eastern North Dakota on Wednesday, including one that had stood for more than a century. Forecasters said a warmup was in store.

The temperature dropped to minus 33 degrees at the Grand Forks airport Wednesday morning, breaking the record for the date of minus 29 set in 1956, said Al Voelker, a National Weather Service meteorologist in the city.
