It has been a truly weird winter here in Connecticut, the weirdest I've lived through. Temperatures have been as high as the 60s. Snow has been seldom and not very deep. But we are not alone in the weirdness.
Europe is experiencing very cold weather recently. Norway has been the coldest, with a temperature of minus 43 degrees Fahrenheit. On the other hand, the North Pole is relatively balmy. It is not even freezing. The temperature has been as high as 35 degrees Fahrenheit, or 50 degrees Fahrenheit above normal, and 78 degrees warmer than in parts of Norway.
