Those are amazing images Tyler. They show photos like that on the news every winter when the deep freezes come down from Canada. 212 degrees to vapor in nothing flat. I think some place outside of International Falls, MN was wind chill -62 degrees F. At 7 am here at my place this morning it's a balmy +63 F. Very unusual. Didn't go outside viewing last night because the local couger is on the prowel. Killed a neighbors goat night before last. They're tracking him, going to try sedate and relocate him once, if not, they'll have to put him down. I heard the dogs and saw the flashlights from the trackers in the forest last night. Very unfortunate, but that's nature vs humans.
