Minus 18.6 degrees in Castlederg

On the above map, point B is Castlederg, a small town in north County Tyrone. Point A is my hometown, Dungannon, or, as I call it, Dungannistan ( hence the name of my blog, as y'all should know).

Castlederg, like most of the country, has experienced record breaking low temperatures this Christmas. My brother Timothy, who lives just across the border from Armagh, had no running water as of a few hours ago, because of the severe frost.

Meanwhile, I am here in Cleveland, Ohio (see below), where it is cold but barely freezing.
