    Yes... chipmunks and black widow spiders are relatively tolerant to cold weather. I know they are around in Eastern Canada which has severe cold in winter. Now, if alligators started to swim up to 50-55N and survive outdoors year round, then we know there are serious problems with the climate!

    . . . and both dead now, after two hard winters in a row. One died in the 2009-10 winter, the other survived (just), only to expire this winter.
