FYI

It's easiest to fight zombies during the winter because they don't produce internal heat. When the temperature drops below 32 F, they freeze solid and are harmless. You can pick-axe their braincasings at your leisure.

Don't say that you never learn anything useful here at Locusts & Honey.

Yuck! That is way more info than I needed to know.

I suppose that's why zombies were traditionally associated with the tropical regions.

I'd guess they don't do too many Alaskan cruises either.

Indeed. The word "zombie" is of West African origin.

Arctic and sub-arctic zombies can cause their own problems. For example, a zombie may be frozen in a lake for many years before a warm period thaws him, all while nearby humans are unaware.

Successful zombie hunting starts with making lots of noise to lure zombies toward you. Frozen zombies can't be lured anywhere. So if you're clearing a frozen area, you have to search every square foot.

Someone's been reading "World War Z". I finished it today.

It's a gripping book. For the first week after I read it, I found myself looking over my shoulder when walking the dog late at night. Gotta watch out for the undead.

Oops. That last comment was from me.

All I know is that at the first sign of outbreak, I'm moving to Denver.

Honolulu's better.

Sure, if you're made of money. Besides, if an island gets infected, you're up the metaphorical creek.
