Was I heralding the arrival of Spring a few posts back? This morning it's back down to 20 below 0 F (that's 29 below 0 C for you Europeans who insist on being different). Bad news for the street people, of whom there seems to be more and more of everyday in Ulaan Baatar. Totally destitute people are migrating here from the countryside, which has been experiencing horrific droughts and huge die-offs of livestock. And it probably isn't going to get better. See Extreme Weather on the Rise!
