Arctic Invasion, Dangerous Cold


The local meteorologist just forecast an Arctic Invasion, a new term for someone like myself, from Arizona. The imagination conjures a melee of sleds heavy with vikings and eskimos, polar bears on ice floes stealthily approaching in pursuit of the neighborhood dogs.

Arctic Invasion. What do they want? Our cattle and our women? Our woolens? What does one do with this information? Encircle the house with a ring of fire?
