    That's over forty degrees
    I'd rather have it thirty,
    Twenty, ten, five and let it freeeeEEEEEEeeze!

    Take a look at a radar weather map - like at http://www.wcsh6.com/weather/radar/interactive.aspx - and slide down to Georgia for the current weather. It looks downright nasty. I hope he stays in his comfy tent today.
