Note:   http://www.hometownvalue.com/hell.htm   which is zip code 48169
According to weather.com, this zip code is about 27 F right now.  As 32 
F is officially "freezing over", we can with all accuracy note that 
indeed, Hell (MI) has frozen over.

Note 2:  It was quite a bit colder last week and up to yesterday where 
southeast Michigan was hovering in the low negative/positive single 
digits in degrees F.   We shouldn't complain as the folks in Minnesota 
have not seen the high side of 0 very much recently.

As for the aerodynamic porcine units, you are on your own.
