Colder than Cold

How could I not share this picture, when it so how Hub and I are feeling at the moment?
Right now I would pack all my aerosol cans out on the deck and spray all the contents if I thought it would help.
I would idle every vehicle in the yard till the tank runs dry, if I could get any of them started.
I would cook on a coal and wood brushfire, if I could clear away enough snow,
without freezing my butt, to get that fire going.
I would burn tires and plastic cups.
I would dig up all arable land and pour concrete on it. Build monster buildings and hot-tar all the roofs.
I’d trade in my old car for a B-train.
I would fly from east to west every day in the biggest sonar jet to campaign for any fool if they would just ask.
I would recycle nothing.
You have your gods, and I have mine
But when it comes to Global Warming….
I’m not a Believer, I’m not an Agnostic,
I'm an Atheist.
And I’ll be drowning in my own sweat before I return to past convictions.
P.S. I don't know how cold it got last night. My digital thermometer cratered at -42 C. and it refuses to be revived.
