How cold are you?

Just wondering, with this Polar Vortex in full force, how cold everyone is? My daughter has been off school for 2 days. We had a high of -12 yesterday, I think wind chills were down in the -30's. Brrr. We're up to -3 right now, could see 0 by this afternoon!

Stay warm everyone!

We have had school closing a the last two days, too. We are in Wisconsin, and were -23 yesterday morning, and the high was -15. Windchills were near -40. Very windy, as well. Today, I woke to -19, but are at -10 now. High of -4. Praying for the 20's & 30's promised by the weekend!!

Stay warm, sgrover!!

We are at +2! The first peek over the zero mark since Saturday night. We will wake to -8, tomorrow, but happily kicking -50 wind chills out the door, now.

We dropped down as low as -14 yesterday with wind chills reaching -45 here in Indianapolis. We are warming up today though and have rebounded all the way up to 3 degrees right now.

Here in Eastern Massachusetts we're a sultry 16 degrees F. Supposed to go down to 9 tonight. That's toasty compared to many of you! Our temps are supposed to go back to more normal levels around Friday.
