The Globe That Warms: -50 in Maine

An older article, but you get the point. Ironic that New England is packed full of liberals who believe in global warming. It's appropriate that they endure this weather. Maybe it will change minds and hearts.

FORT KENT, Maine — An arctic blast from Canada is bringing brutally frigid air and wind chills expected to dip to 50 below zero to northern New England, prompting officials to warn residents to take precautions against the cold.

The National Weather Service in Caribou issued a statewide wind chill warning Sunday night effective through Monday.

Bitterly cold air will remain over northern Maine through Monday night, forcing temperatures down below zero with negative double-digit wind chill values.
