Everything's relative

This morning, I awoke to a temperature of minus-4. But it is a calm, sunny day in Dubuque, and life moves on.

Meanwhile, in Florida, officials are opening emergency shelters to help people endangered by the cold. The temperature might dip into the 20s.

Granted, folks in Florida don't have the insulated homes, winter coats and boots to cope with those temperatures. Still -- emergency shelters?
