Nine below zero

Tonight it is supposed to go down to -9 degrees. It is going to break a record set in 1914.

I took that picture up above in the park the other day. It has been cold for a little while now. But still.

Negative nine degrees!

I cannot believe that no one mentioned this all day, but surely I am not the only one thinking of Sonny Boy Williamson's "Nine Below Zero."

The record of nine below zero was set in Buffalo before Leonard Pennario was born but not before Sonny Boy Williamson was born. He was born Dec. 5, 1899.

"It done got nine below zero, the woman put me out, for another man."

God love you, Sonny Boy.
