I am so sorry for those
of you who are snow covered! (News reports 40% of lower 49
states.) And so many are COLD!
As little TV as I watch,
I am a big PBS fan. A recent NOVA was on the science of
COLD. I'd never thought about it. To
think that someone had to invent the thermometer just to measure it! So many aspects to consider.
can barely imagine the type of person who seriously asks "what is
COLD?" and then laboriously searches for the answer and ways to
demonstrate it so others understand. It was in the 1600s, not that long ago,
in the course of human history, that someone finally started to figure
out and define the exact nature of cold (& heat), that we now take for granted. Then they had to figure
out how to actually make stuff (gas) even colder to make other gas
cold, to be able to make "really cold". This gave us
refrigeration and really, the world as we know it now. Very
cool, I mean "cold"! LOL Anyway, enough on
my ramblings about the weather . . .
Warm weather? How
