Our low tonight is the lowest so far this winter (or last winter) and still 56 degrees higher than yours. Were freezing outside here, 35 now but going to 28 before morning, 51 for the high tomorrow. :blush2:


-28  that's crazy, and it can get worse they say

Yeah, the crazy part is tomorrow's high temperature of -20.  It's the coldest forecasted high of anywhere in Minnesota and we're in west central MN.  It usually gets a lot colder in northern MN.

Mid sixties today... beach weather.

Mid sixties?  Light the fireplace Mabel, that's cold in Las Vegas!  Time to head to Lake Meade for some entertainment.  ⛸️


It's six degrees here in West Virginia and will be all day.

The weather station at the nearby Elementary School indicates 

-15 degree air temp

-35 degrees Wind Chill

18mph sustained with 35mph gust.

Indianapolis Intl Airport reports  -11 air temp which is a record for the date.


All is good here but hearing of all the power outages on the local news is disturbing.


Be safe everyone.

The wind chill is another thing the weather people are flogging to death. The chill index started out (in Antartica) as a measurement of temperature/wind speed on exposed flesh to determine how much time is involved before the flesh freezes. The USA  Air Force used a chicken later on (Can't remember if it was alive or dead) for a subject. In the old days everybody just said it was cold and doubled up on clothing. The Eskimos  (supposedly) invented the parka with a fur lined hood which closed around the face to create a warm air pocket to prevent the eyes from freezing in -50F weather. American workers in this kind of weather were limited and timed to how long they were exposed. (maybe not enforced)

Not sure if they invented "Iron Pants". The weather people also fail to mention that if you have a sore or cut on your exposed flesh that it is the first thing that freezes. And mittens instead of fingered gloves.
