The high tomorrow will be...6.

Degrees.

Of course, it's probably just as cold where ever you are. My son told me it's supposed to get down to single digits in Knoxville tomorrow.

Oh yeah - do you know what else he told me?

He bought a Western Civ textbook.

It cost $110

And no, he couldn't buy a used one because, as per usual with this racket it's a "new edition" that is being used and must be purchased. I'm used to hearing about $80.00 science or mathematics text, but I've never heard of an introductory humanities text breaking a hundred. What a crock. What a rip-off. What a boondoggle.
