I woke up this morning to -25 degrees and two hours later it is -22.  This is Chicago and it's surrounding areas.  Over the weekend we will be around 40.  Crazy weather.  How about you?  Stay warm.  Cat Happy

I'm in SE Michigan.  We get everything you do only a day later.  Thanks for the warning!  My car thermometer said -7 this morning but I think the wind chill was well into double digits.

Please stay safe all of you. NYC is cold enough. I always worry re homeless.

Southwestern Michigan has beautiful blue skies, bright sunshine and a temp of -10 with a wind chill of -35. My neighbors got all cranky with me this morning because I opened the garage door (it's a shared garage) for 5 minutes to start my car and clear some snow away from the door so that it didn't get in to the garage itself.  I asked if they preferred that I leave the door closed while running the engine, so that the exhaust fumes could seep into their condos and got the "huh???" blank stare.

Our idiot Governor said that closing the schools in this extreme cold is going to make our kids "soft".
