            Bad winter weather much milder around here

            Bad weather is relative, Editor Don Whitten points out. People in the South are concerned about temperatures in the 30s with winds 10-20 mph on Thursday.

                Winter weather – erring on the side of caution

                  The coldest weather for an “outdoor” Super Bowl was the low-40s several decades ago. With “indoor” Super Bowls in domed stadiums, it’s been a comfortable 70 or so inside even if it was in the teens and snowing outside.
