FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Fort Wayne observed a morning low temperature of 23° just before daybreak Saturday, May 9th, setting a new daily and monthly record.

The previous record low for this date was 27° set back in 1947. The coldest temperature previously recorded during the month of May was also 27°.

A new daily record low was tied on May 8th, when temperatures fell to 29°. Temperatures had previously fallen to that value back on May 8th of 1947.

EXTREMELY RARE… Temperatures have fallen into the 20s during the month of May just seventeen times since 1924. The most recent prior occurrence was fifteen years ago, back in 2005.

I'm feeling it in my screwed-up back. I can barely move.

I remember sitting on the steps in front of apartment I lived in in 1987. It was early May, it went from 60 degrees to about 35 in the course of an hour. No strong wind, no storm front, nothing dramatic, just instant freezer.

“I am not one of those weak-spirited, sappy Americans who want to be liked by all the people around them. I don’t care if people hate my guts; I assume most of them do. The important question is whether they are in a position to do anything about it. My affections, being concentrated over a few people, are not spread all over Hell in a vile attempt to placate sulky, worthless shits.” - William S Burroughs

Damn! I surely hope it didn't get that cold in north central IA for all the corn and beans (and the farmers) sake. Yikes.

Select Comfort mattress has really helped me, my family, and friends since 1992. Today there are several competing firms in that market.
