    -13F (-25C) in Chicago. But it is brightly sunny, which is a pleasure to see even though it is very cold.

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!

    Man, the midwest is really getting cold temperatures. It's colder in Illinois and Indiana than it is here in Prudhoe Bay (-2F).
    And we're on the Arctic Ocean! Huddle up by the fires. Hope it passes soon.

    Well, the Carolinas, Georgia, Tennessee, the Virginias are experiencing record cold snaps. Tonight it is supposed to drop to 9 deg F in the Upstate. The wind chill could be as low as -5.

    We have a two hour delay tomorrow for school. Most of our area is rural, and cars may not start the extreme cold . It's just easier to have a delay.

    The Governor declared a emergency "Code Red" banning all but emergency vehicles on roads. All schools & state gov. buildings closed today.

    It's -12 F and wind chill at -37. Canada can have it's weather back anytime now.

    Right now - minus 14.3 F, wind chill minus 29. No school today; none tomorrow, and I'm thinking they might be off Wednesday, also.

    It's -14 here, schools are closed.

    If Watertown, NY cancelled school every time the temp hit -14, they'd be in school year round making up for all the cancellation days. The first winter I was up there it didn't hit above 0 for the month of February. It's cold, dress intelligently and deal with it. These weather alarmists need to stop. Yes, they get ratings with their hysteria. However, it's cold now, it's been cold before, life goes on.

    Still cold in Chicago this morning, right now -9F (-23C). The good news- we should be back to high 20s/low 30s later this week (they're saying Thursday into the weekend). The bad news- with warmer temps comes a daily chance of more snow. Great. I heard a funny line on the radio last night: "The North Pole called. They'd like their weather back."

    It's so cold that an escaped inmate down in Richard's neck of the woods turned himself in!

    Hee hee - maybe some folks will think twice. That reminds me of an incident from many years ago, when we had the guys as roommates. Guy #1 and #2 (not referred to by name as both now have kids who might some day Google them) decided to hiking in the White Mountains in the winter. Well, they brought fuel for a camp stove but not the stove itself, and lost the trail on the way to one of the AMC huts.

    Guy #1 - Let's just break off some tree branches and try to light a fire to stay warm.
    Guy #2 - We can't do that, it's illegal! We might get arrested!
    Guy #1 - Jail is heated, I'd prefer that to freezing to death on the mountain!

    It's still -3F in Chicago tonight. But it's supposed to be in the 40s over the weekend. I saw a funny post on Facebook about Chicago's weather- "It's so cold that the politicians are putting their hands in their own pockets."

    It's remarkable how different -15 and +15F feel. Today is also bright and sunny, and there is less wind. We're getting a break from the very cold weather.
