Page  COLD, HARD TRUTH (continued): • People over age 60 and children less than a year old are most susceptible to the cold. For those of you in that category, experts suggest keeping indoor temperatures above 69 F (21 C) and when going outside, dress appropri-ately for the cold. Have plenty of layers of clothes and a hat on the head. • How cold was it? For those of us who like to think that George Washington walked on water, this confirms it: the winter of 1779-1780 was so cold that ice was piled 20 feet high along the Delmarva Coast and stayed there until spring. The upper portion of the Chesapeake Bay and the entire Potomac River was frozen solid. People were able to walk from Annapolis to Kent Island and from Alexandria into Washington D.C.

It was the first and thus far the only time snow has been ob-served south of Fort Myers. The snow melted on contact with the COLD, HARD TRUTH ground but nevertheless it did(continued): snow. • A hailstone weighing more than one-and-ahalf pounds once fell on Coffeyville, Kansas. No one was hit. • Based on records between 1961 and 1990, Rochester, New York receives an average of 94 inches of snow a year and is the snowiest large city in the United States.

• Contrary to popular belief, a polar bear’s fur is not white; each shaft of hair is actually transparent, with a hollow core. Because the hollow core scatters and reflects light, the polar bear’s coat appears white, like the ice and snow around it.

• A wind chillJanuary factor of14-25 F (-32 C)20, or 2010 lower - January can actually cause skin to freeze; that’s called frostbite. If it is that cold out, either cover all your exposed skin. Or get inside. We heartily recommend the latter. • In southern Illinois and the Ozark hills of Missouri, “goosebone” weather prophets examine the breastbone of a wild goose killed in autumn.

• Baby it’s cold outside: Here’s an oddity: - 40 F is the same regardless of whether you measure in Fahrenheit or Celsius.

• In the late 1970s, three polar bears at the San Diego Zoo appeared to turn green when colonies of algae grew in their hair shafts. A veterinarian restored their white appearance by killing the algae with a saline solution.

• Mercury freezes at -36 F (-38 C). So if it gets really cold outside, that old fashioned mer-cury thermometer you keep outside will itself freeze at minus 38 degrees.

• On Jan. 6, 2002 snow fell in Athens for the first time since 1992. Some Aegean islands were also affected by snow and gale force winds.

• Looks can be deceiving. Just because the sun is out on a winter day doesn’t mean it is necessarily warm. The coldest days are usually the clear ones – no clouds to hold in what little heat may be radiating away from the earth.

• Desert areas in the north of Saudi Arabia were affected by snow for the first time in 40 years on Jan. 18, 2002. The snow melted away quickly but reports say that nomads in the area weren’t used to snow and were rather confused as to what to do with it. • Snowbirds must have had a sense of déjà vu when snow fell in Miami, Palm Beach, Mi-ami Beach and Homestead (22 miles south of Miami) on Jan. 17, 1997. It was the first and thus far the only time snow has been ob-served south of Fort Myers. The snow melted on contact with the ground but nevertheless it did snow.

This city has about 252 foggy days a year. 3. What is the weather condition formed when snow melts and then refreezes before it hits the ground? 4. What continent has the coldest average temperatures of any place on Earth?

A preacher and his flock at a poor church in the hills of Tennessee took up collections for months to get money to buy paint for the church exterior. Finally they bought enough paint and joined together on a Saturday morning to complete the job. When they were about half finished they realized that they were going to run out of paint. The preacher said, “It’s a water base paint, just thin it down with water.” They did so until the color started losing its depth and when they finally finished it was dark green at the top, light green in the middle and a very light green at the bottom. Just then a dark cloud appeared and the heavens opened up with a deluge of rain which washed all of the paint. The preacher and the congregation were stunned at the hard work they had done for nothing. Just then there was a lightning flash followed by the roll of thunder and a loud voice from the heavens rang out, “REPAINT, REPAINT AND THIN NO MORE.”

Within 60 seconds after entering a meeting, shake hands with a stranger. When you meet strangers, you are preparing for the future. The majority of your peers seek out a friend They exchange a few pleasantries, they gather some Gooey Gossip, and they parrot yesterday’s news. When the gavel comes down to begin the meeting, the only thing your peers have accomplished is to convert Meetings to Musings. They have failed to convert Meetings to Money. Your peers are clueless. I have a suggestion. Introduce yourself to a stranger within 60 seconds after you arrive to an event. Use The Clusters. Then follow by introducing the stranger to a friend You have helped each person broaden their financial base and everyone wins! Repeat the process until the gavel hits the sounding board and continue this Miracle until your retire or expire.

Something to think about. . . In an article recently from the University of Wyoming is said that a dollar spent locally turns over 3-7 times before it leaves the local economy. That means $1 spent in our communities has the impact of several dollars. Here’s how it works. When a dollar is spent with a local merchant, the merchant then pays for its inventory, employees’ wages and overhead. The merchant then buys groceries, and necessities. The grocer pays rent and wages and purchases other necessities. And the cycle continues until someone buys something from out of town. Tax is paid on every purchase and a portion of that comes back and is spent on wages and supplies in our communities. It is that simple. After thinking about this, I came to this conclusion: when you stop and consider the time, gas, lunch, when

going out of our communities to shop, there may be better prices on a FEW items, but in the long run, one can save more by shopping locally. Our businesses are very competitive with other stores. Best of all our local businesses are usually willing to go the extra mile and order about anything you could possibly want. You’re not going to get that service down the road. By giving local merchants a chance to earn your business, you give the local economy a greater chance of thriving. So, save gas, time, and the extra cash spent on lunch and shop locally first. Let’s make it our New Year’s Resolution to not break the cycle and shop locally throughout the year. Article courtesy of the Glenrock Chamber of Commerce.

• The 1949 inauguration of Harry Truman was the first to be nationally televised, and was seen by an estimated 10 million Americans. Is is said that more people watched President Truman’s Inauguration than the total of all people witnessing all previous Presidential Inaugurations. • Except for Washington’s first inaugural, when he was sworn in on April 30, 1789, all presidents until 1937 were inaugurated in March in an effort to avoid bad weather. • George Washington wasn’t exactly a man of words. In fact, his inaugural in 1793 was the shortest inaugural address, at 135 words. William H. Harrison’s (1841), on the other hand, was the longest inaugural address at 8,445 words. • The inaugural date was changed from March to Jan. 20 as a result of passage of the 20th Amendment to the Constitution (passed in 1933). Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s second inauguration was the first to have been held on that date. • Thomas Jefferson, in 1801, was the only president to walk to and from his inaugural. He was also the first to be inaugurated at the Capitol. • James Madison was the first President to take the oath of office and deliver the inau-gural address outdoors; the ceremony took place on platform in front of the temporary Brick Capitol, where the Supreme Court now stands.

Q. What do you do if your nose goes on strike? A. Picket

1. Name the cloudiest city in the United States; this city has approximately 240 cloudy days a year. 2. It’s not far away from the cloudiest city. Name the foggiest place in the United States. This city has about 252 foggy days a year. 3. What is the weather condition formed when snow melts and then refreezes before it hits the ground? 4. What continent has the coldest average temperatures of any place on Earth?

A preacher and his flock at a poor church in the hills of Tennessee took up collections for months to get money to buy paint for the church exterior. Finally they bought enough paint and joined together on a Saturday morning to complete the job. When they were about half finished they realized that they were going to run out of paint. The preacher said, “It’s a water base paint, just thin it down with water.” They did so until the color started losing its depth and when they finally finished it was dark green at the top, light green in the middle and a very light green at the bottom. Just then a dark cloud appeared and the heavens opened up with a deluge of rain which washed all of the paint. The preacher and the congregation were stunned at the hard work they had done for nothing. Just then there was a lightning flash followed by the roll of thunder and a loud voice from the heavens rang out, “REPAINT, REPAINT AND THIN NO MORE.”

1.Paul McCartney’s post-Beatles band was named?

2. Name one of the two states that has never had a high temperature over 100 degrees.

“Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.”

-- John Ruskin
