"Foggier yet, and colder! Piercing, searching, biting cold. If the good Saint Dunstan* had but nipped the Evil Spirit's nose with a touch of such weather as that, instead of using his familiar weapons, then indeed he would have roared to lusty purpose." - Charles Dickens, The Christmas Carol.

It is quickly moving beyond cold tonight. An "Artic front": -8F in Leadville and below zero in Pueblo which is odd since they are nearly 2,000 feet lower than we are. The Denver International Airport set a record low this evening of - 15 F.

Meanwhile, I'm cosily ensconced in the Rocky Mountain Riviera: CS is a balmy .1 F. Scrap that. In the time it took to write this post, the temperature here has fallen to - .3 F.

This sort of weather is extremely dangerous. Pray that the homeless all find shelter tonight. I'm sure that all emergency shelters will be open tonight throughout the Rocky Mountain region, the great plains and upper mid-west.

Another sign of the situation: It snowed in New Orleans yesterday. The earliest snowfall ever recorded in the Crescent City.

*St. Dunstan was Archbishop and confessor, and one of the greatest saints of the Anglo-Saxon Church. Against the old church of St. Mary he built a little cell only five feet long and two and a half feet deep, where he studied and worked at his handicrafts and played on has harp. Here the devil is said (in a late eleventh legend) to have tempted him and to have been seized by the face with the saint's tongs.

Update: It seems to have dropped 7 degrees in the last few minutes and is now -17 F in Leadville with a wind chill of -37 F. Y'all in Leadville - stay indoors!

If your reservations involved sleeper accommodations (Amtrak's First Class on their long-distance overnight trains) on either your late-arriving train or your missed connection, you will get a hotel voucher for the unplanned overnight stay. Customer Service will commonly offer travel vouchers of $100 or more off future Amtrak travel to inconvenienced passengers. This is true for all classes of service. If you plan to board an Amtrak train at a location other than the train's initial place of departure, it's usually a good idea to call ahead before you leave for the station to see if the train is running on time.
