The polar vortex is back


If this was a bulls eye, I think it would be Columbus.

Our streets were finally cleared around 3 p.m. yesterday, now the snow has melted on the sidewalks and condo street, but more cold to come. 

“NOAA’s Weather Prediction Center writes that the dangerously cold outbreak is surging south thanks in part to an appendage of the polar vortex. “There are indications that this could be some of the coldest weather since the mid-1990s for parts of the Southeast U.S., Mid-Atlantic, and central Appalachians,” it wrote. “An eddy of the polar vortex will add to the potency of the surface cold front, thus creating a deep layer of bitterly cold air.” . . . the week’s record-breaking cold is not just Arctic, but Siberian air that has been trudging across the North Pole and into North America — leading many to refer to the outbreak as the “Siberian Express.” ”

Our church Haiti mission team got out of Columbus on schedule last night and out of Miami on schedule this morning.
