…lion?  To quite Patrick O’Brian, lions ain’t in it, mate.  We are told that the overnight low upcoming will touch -40 (F or C, as you wish) and adding in the wind-chill will put is in shouting distance of the sensation of -60.  “March comes in like a nation of frost giants riding angry chimerae crammed with liquid nitrogen” may not be traditional nor poetic, but it comes closer to the sense of it.

I was, therefore, going to mount a campaign of sympathetic magic and lift from Youtube some version of Vivaldi’s “Spring”.  There are a couple of problems with that, though.  The goofy objection is I don’t want to jeopardize the return to (nearly) seasonal temperatures we’re promised for next week, as shouting “knock it off” frequently just causes heels to be dug in.  The also-goofy objection is that I don’t really like that particular concerto.  So, here’s something that will at least get some blood moving, and it’s cellos so it’s high-class art.

Have a good weekend, everyone.  Try not to break off any major body parts.
