This morning when we hopped in the car to go to church at 8:45, the thermometer read -1 degree. By the time we got to church 15 minutes later, it had warmed up (wa-who!) to zero degrees. And with 55 percent humidity and a wind chill factor of who-knows-what...the bishop called the few on-time ward members the "frozen chosen." :)
My question is this: Why would anyone want to live somewhere this cold? Haven't they ever been to Phoenix in the winter?? Or California? I just keep thinking that if I were a pioneer and had thousands of miles to go pulling a handcart, then yes, I'd probably settle for a cold climate. But that is THE ONLY reason! Really now, people have choices these days!
If you ask me, the cost of living in a warmer climate is infinitely worth it.
