With the windchill approaching -50F this week, with the high temps for today and tomorrow being -11F and -13F, this pretty much describes how we feel in the upper Midwest this week.

Perfect. My mom is in Cleveland counting the icicles hanging off her porch. They've  been there the better part of a month. Bundle up in the midwest.

Stay safe Johnny.  That's life threatening cold.  In Miami, our version of this artic blast is bringing lows in the 50's and 60's and we're complaining.

Johnny - that hit the nail on the head - January feels like it has lasted forever.  I have my blacksmithing class tonight and for once it will feel good to stand next to the 2100 degree forge.    Wink

We are setting all kind of records today.

Now at 7:06 AM the temp is -26F with a windchill of -55F.  The high for today will be -12F.  Same thing tomorrow.

Businesses are closed, even USPS mail delivery has been canceled.  

But not to worry, they are forecasting rain and a high of 41F on Saturday.

And then it'll drop between freezing again I bet, making sure you got a nice coating of hard ice on everthing...

Did I mention I hate when everyrthing is iced over?

Morning view from my balcony, much warmer here in the Alps.
Stay safe!

Johnny, you folks are warming it up for us, but we're starting to get it tonight and it'll be with us into the weekend from what I remember. I pay little attention, I just endure it. Snug as a bug in a rug here but we will need to reload the wood bin at some point. We don't heat with oil when it gets below 20°F, but switch to wood heat because of the constant output and no thermostatic control (cycling up and down, one minute too hot and the next too cold, of course the timing is much longer than that).

Stay much higher than outside ambient temps my friends! (stay warm)

My wife's grandmother told me that where she lives it got so cold her teeth were chattering, and she wasn't even wearing them!  Touche Granny-in-law

Gorgeous.  I'm jealous.  Which Alps are they?

Engadin, East end of beautiful Suisse.
We relocated here 2 and a half year ago.

Indeed it does.  I've only been to Geneva a few years ago.  Loved that city.  It seemed like a miniature Paris to me, especially the older part of the city.  I'd love to see the Swiss Alps some day.
