    NORTH POLE HEAT

    WEST YELLOWSTONE WAS 59 DEGREES COLDER THAN THE POLE
    -------
    .. Be it Christmas, Chanukah,
    Brumalia, Korochun, Shalako, or your own mid winter celebration; tonight is auspicious.
    .. Our news hounds have gathered the best tidbits  of news from sources at the bank, Post Office, grocery store, hardware store, and a few dark corners in the only pub where there are more neighbors than visitors.
    .. Ahem, the cold spot of the northern hemisphere is not in Siberia. It's not at the North Pole. It's not in Iceland, Greenland, Lapland, or Bangor, Maine. It's just a small trek north of the border with Canada. And, occasionally downtown West Yellowstone.That is auspicious.
    CORPULENT AND CREPUSCULAR
    .. Arctic sea ice is disappearing at a record rate. That is auspicious: even if you deny it.
    .. Santa Claus must have some good antifreeze in his veins as he leaves the tropical North Pole for destinations in lower North America. That is auspicious even if you are a reindeer.
    .. NORAD is working hard to justify it's Santa tracking facilities in the face of anticipated budget cuts after January 20, 2017. Probably auspicious.
    .. They will soon be spending most of their time with only last generation jets for defense and the need to be ever alert for some over the pole incursions of updated nuclear threats. That seems to be auspicious.
    CLICK TO FOLLOW SANTA
    .. This evening may be the last opportunity to follow the course of Santa on his rounds. Whoa! - way auspicious!
    .. The precise identification of Santa may be sketchy with the poorly maintained last generation radars. He may get shot down if our obsolete jets can catch him. Most definitely auspicious.
    .. It looks like today and tomorrow we will climb to temperatures approaching those at the North Pole. We're glad for the warm up and that certainly is auspicious.
    LOW AND SLOW
    .. Time to put the standing rib roast in the halogen convection oven. it will swelter most of the day. It will be so much better than a conventional oven.
    ..  Probably need to have some cherry pie for breakfast. That is about as inauspicious as it gets.
