Jeez, and to me it is "really cold out" when the thermometer reads below 50°....

Well, we didn't quite hit Chris' cold of -14F, we were stuck around -11F maybe -12F... Have some video on the way...

Some of the area school were delayed two hours because of the -30F to -40F wind chills.

For as mild of a winter as we've had, I am enjoying the cold.

We also had what they were calling the "gloomiest" or the cloudiest/most days with no sun in January in over 50 years.
