Cold? How cold is getting by you?

Postby RevnJeff on Mon Jan 21, 2013 8:15 pm

Right now, at 6:00 pm local time, the current temperature is -14 degrees. It is supposed to to get to -25. The wind chill is supposed to be between -40 and -50.

I hope our local fire departments do not have to deal with any working fires in the next 24 hours. Schools are either closed or delayed by 3 hours.

With the wind and cold, our furnace is struggling to keep the house at a lovely 56 degrees. Sweatshirts and blankets are the uniforms for sitting and watching TV.

Instead of "Let's be careful out there," maybe it should be "stay warm out there!"
