There's lots more where that came from.

With wind-chill, temperature today in Lawrence is a brisk 25. Yesterday afternoon, I was walking around campus in shirt-sleeves because it was 70. Lots of talk on NPR last night about global warming; an interesting note: The ice caps are melting faster and faster because as they melt, more ice - reflective stuff - converts into water, absorbtive stuff, thus accelerating the melting. If they were to completely melt, something that could happen within our lifetime, the oceans would rise about 100 feet (or 300, depending on who's talking).
