You know it's cold when the United Way people in Austin won't go out to "raise" the thermometer showing how much money's been raised:
WE WILL NOT BE RAISING the thermometer this morning because it’s just too cold. And since we picked one of the coldest days I’ve attached the press release regarding our most current campaign update.
Thanks and stay warm
United Way of Mower County
