After 13 Consecutive Days, The Mercury Will Finally Climb Above Freezing Thursday

If you think you are the only one freezing these days, you are not alone. As a matter of fact, all of us have been freezing since January 30. That was the last day the mercury climbed above the freezing point of 32 degrees Fahrenheit, according to statistics from Quincy Municipal Airport.

That will all come to an end tomorrow when the temperature is expected to climb above 32. It will mark the first time we will be above freezing this entire month. That’s right. We have been below freezing for 13 consecutive days.

There is a good chance your worn out furnace has been churning out heat to the delight of Ameren Illinois and the gas companies for over some 300 consecutive hours. No wonder those heat bills are going through the roof (so to speak).

We have been freezing for so long that some of us are getting conditioned to the cold. Don’t be surprised to see people sleeping with their windows open with temperatures in the 40s (just kidding, of course).

In any case, that light at the end of the frozen tunnel will be seen Thursday (if you are able to pay your light bill that is).
