What is your weather like right now?

We got 7 inches of snow yesterday, and they cancelled school. Today we're looking at significant wind chill, actual temp is -2F, and school was cancelled again here along the river.

Friggin' C-C-C-COLD!

With the wind chill this morning it was -35.

I'm still trying to get my feet to warm up!

According to my SIL, school was actually cancelled today in Minneapolis! That only happens when hell has frozen over.

We're coming to stay with you, Cheryl!

We aren't MN- or Iowa- or U.P.-cold, but we're cold. It's around 16 out there right now, and if we're lucky we'll actually reach that for a HIGH tomorrow! Glad I'll be snuggled under blankets and a down comforter when tonight's low happens - supposed to be -7.

And to think that when I was young (and foolish) I used to go skiing in weather like this! Right now I'm glad I still have the thermal undies.

We have 27F right now and the low tonight will be 14! Jeez! I know it's not as bad as some are experiencing, though. I have family in Michigan and Oak Park, near Chicago. Brrrrr!

High of 25 tomorrow. No precipitation in the forecast till Monday.

Yes, Carol, whenever it snows, people fill up on groceries, gas, etc. Our cities don't have the equipment to remove snow so the area just shuts down, for the most part.

I may be going out tomorrow. If I do, the long janes are going with me!

Temp. -2F
Windchill -15F

If I go out with the car tomorrow morning those darn low tire pressure sensors will light up.

Why is it that so many things designed to improve the quality of my life only seem to make it worse!

Sending all of you warm hugs. I hate to report on the temps. here when you guys are so cold. I had both doors open this morning and then had to close them and switch on the AC.

We are having our coldest night in years. I still grilled burgers outside but it wasn't a lot of fun.
