Surfacing Attention

It is an abstract picture day, with bright colours to counteract the weather.  We have another snow warning for this week, let us hope for the conclusion of winter weather.

On the topic of temperature scales, our fact for the day is about the Celsius scale - it comes from one of those funny and weird fact sites and is confirmed in the wikipedia entry.  
- At a glance, the Celsius scale makes more sense than the Fahrenheit scale for temperature measuring. But its creator, Anders Celsius, was an oddball scientist. When he first developed his scale, he made freezing 100 degrees and boiling 0 degrees, or upside down. No one dared point this out to him, so fellow scientists waited until Celsius died to change the scale.
