Ann Arbor expected to be colder than South Pole on Wednesday

The South Pole in Antarctica is expected to be balmier than Ann Arbor on Wednesday, Jan. 30. The Ann Arbor area, like most of Michigan, is on track to experience a blast of bitterly cold Arctic air Wednesday that could beat temperatures down to record lows, the National Weather Service says.

As of 2 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 29, the weather service projects temperatures as low as 19 below zero Wednesday. Meanwhile, 8 degrees below zero is forecast at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station in Antarctica, where it is summer. If the forecast proves accurate, the former low temperature record for Jan. 30, 11 degrees below zero, set in 1911, will be broken, according to data provided by University of Michigan climate research scientist Frank J. Marsik.

The National Weather Service also issued a wind chill warning to take effect at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 29 through 6 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 31. The wind child is expected to dip to between 25 and 40 degrees below zero, cold enough to cause the onset of frostbite to exposed skin in as little as 10 minutes. The governor of Michigan has declared a state of emergency.

the rock.

Standard


Karen Schaefer took her turn at painting the Rock in Ann Arbor’s George Washington Park, announcing her conclusion about the boulder that was put on the spot in the 1930s. Schaefer wrote her master’s degree thesis on the Rock, (Objects that communicate).

 all kinds of people with all kinds of agendas paint the rock in this decades-old tradition in ann arbor. the chat below was found on my community website and i especially loved how s.a. was at the ready with his how-to directions and a bit of historical support. 

G.A. Does anyone know how much paint is required to paint a message on “The Rock” at Hill and Washtenaw?

P. L. Funny, my husband and I were just talking about this when we drove by it the other day.

S. A.  Old gallon of house paint for the base, one old mop or broom, go to Denny’s down the road, come back and it’s dry for the message.

T. S. Can’t believe that no one has commented that is is illegal and vandalism…

S. A. Even Al Gallup, the living son of the Gallup who placed it there in honor of Washington, is okay with it.
