Finally Forty

Just last week Flic and I were pondering the unthinkable:  a winter in Squarebanks without a single instance of 40 below.  I went so far as to proclaim that, "Yep.  It ain't gonna happen."  All the while realizing that such behavior was inviting a major jinx.

Sure enough, we had a day yesterday, the first minus forty this winter.  However, unlike years past, this cold snap didn't hang on long here.  It's already up to the minus 20s (ordinarily a warm spell in mid-winter) today.
