New Record - 85 degree shift

Mrs. Phactor set a new record on Friday. At 5:30 AM when she departed it was -5 degrees F (-20.5 C) and by noon she was in southern Florida at 80 F (26.6 C), an 85 degree temperature shift in a matter of hours. But although not as drastic, the return from tropical to arctic is always much harder, and that comes from having returned from tropical field work into our winter on several occasions. No fun it that what so ever, however the worst aspect is not the temperature shift but the difference in humidity and the horrible things that does to my aging dermis.
