Codfish on the Rocks

Every day has been cold here so far this year. It’s either crisp, sunny and cold with minus 10 degrees Celsius – sometimes probably closer to minus 20 degrees in some places at night when the skies are clear -, or it’s overcast and foggy, some minus three degrees or somewhat above the freezing point, but windy and humid which feels much colder. I think wind makes the biggest difference, and humidity is the second factor which makes moderate frost feel cold. Last night was one of the milder ones, with some snowfall.

A cartoonist at De Standaard (Belgium) seems to have second thoughts about Al Gore’s Inconvenient Truth.

Then again, maybe the Arctic meltdown is cooling down the North Sea? Codfish on the rocks?
