Oh man, that song brings me back elementary school. =D

Yeah! I was 7 years old :)

That's radiational cooling for you. I realize you don't have that much experience with it out PDX way, but we New Englanders are intimately familiar with the phenomenon. More so, in fact, than most of us would like.
