I knew that winter was coming. We had a couple of brief sightings in November and December - but they were quickly forgotten with numerous days of above average temperatures. You had to look in cool, shady places for find evidence of snow.
BUT to have the temperature drop over 22 degrees in less than 24 hours is a bit ridiculous. We skipped over winter and fell into a bitterly frozen hell that is hard to comprehend.
This morning the temperature was -30 with a wind chill of -38.
MINUS THIRTY EIGHT ??!!??
That is minus 36 F
I don't need a snow day. I need a "it's too cold to go outside without freezing my skin off" day.
Thank goodness for long underwear, hot coffee, the block heater in my car, and fuzzy socks.
