An Upside to the Bitter Cold

If you talk to anyone who lost power due to the winter snow and ice storms of late, or anyone who’s had to drive on the ice-covered roadways, you probably won’t hear too many good things about the weather.  But scientists say we’re just not looking at the situation as the glass half full!

They say the bitter cold not only creates havoc on the roadway, and fills emergency rooms wtih patients suffering hypotermia or frostbite, but it can do some good as well.  They say temps like these could be killing off some insects that have ravaged forests in the northern part of the state and could be slowing the migration of invasive speces.

Heavy ice, they say, might be a problem to move, but it could also protect wetlands and prevent erosion along large lakes.
