Nothing lasts forever.  Records are made to be broken. Our morning temperature here is 3 degrees.  That's three degrees below the previous lowest low temp here in the past 20 years.  It might drop another degree before the sunrise.

(Editor's Note:  Yes, it dropped to 2 degrees shortly after 7 am and has been stuck at 2 for about 30 minutes.)

Most of Northern Arizona is colder than yesterday and might be even colder tomorrow morning, too.  The Grand Canyon South Rim is twenty below zero.  Looking at other people's lower temps doesn't do much to warm us up.

Well, at least we do warm up somewhat during the day.  Our high here reached 41 Saturday before falling back into the mid-20's during the evening camp fire.  By comparison, Idaho Falls reached a high of 7 degrees yesterday.  This morning, all of Eastern Idaho is hanging out below zero, as you can see from the graphic below.  Stanley's Saturday low was -33 and we bet it will be lower than that this morning.  The Snake River at The Falls in Idaho Falls is completely frozen and looks like some Currier & Ives etching chiseled in white ice.

Nothing lasts forever. Late this week a warm up is expected.
