Wow! The Chicago area isn't THAT cold - but we're cold. Our wind chill in the suburbs is -18° though - too cold for me.

Its cold here too (northern Kentucky). Its 10 right now with windchill of about -12. Supposed to be very cold for the next 4 days.

Have you seen the commercial for an island vacation? They show a couple on the beach and voice comes on and says "there are places with no wind chill". Gets me EVERY time - I almost picked up the phone to book a trip last time I saw it!

Even though the sun is shining, it's bitter cold. Plus it's very, very windy. The "feels like" temp is about 12 degrees F. It is also supposed to get colder the next several days. I just wish the wind would stop.

It's that global warming stuff that is making us all shiver this weekend.

It's funny how everything is truly relative. To me, it isn't bitter cold until the skin on my forehead hurts when I step outside. That's around -10, or 5 with a wind chill, and below. Nippy is from about 10 to 5 degrees. From 15 on up, I don't really feel the cold. And when the news comentators suggest that 38 degrees is dangeously cold, well, I've swam in water colder than that, mind you, not for very long.

I really know its cold out when the snow crunches loudly under foot, and I feel a sharp sensation in my nose when I breath in.

My wife on the other hand, well she's bitterly cold at anything below about 45 degrees.

By the way, it's about 2 degrees here in Sault Ste. Marie.
