Frigid Temperatures Continue in Mid Michigan

The deep freeze continues, not only in Michigan, but most of the eastern U.S.  There is even snow in the forecast for northern Florida.  So Mother Nature has certainly made life miserable for many of us.  Someone posted on Facebook yesterday that some scientists are predicting that we are heading for a mini ice age.  Considering the source, however, that is dubious.  Regardless, it feels like we are experiencing an ice age right now.  Hopefully, there will be a break in this weather next week.
