The last week of January often marks the coldest week of the year, at least for the northern half of our planet.  We’ve been tilted away from the sun for weeks, we’ve had short days of sunlight, and in some places cloudy gray skies make matters worse.  So it’s no surprise that many states have had their coldest temperature ever in late January or early February.  When you see some of the records set over the decades, you might find that a bowl of ice cream at 3 degrees F could warm you up.
