Yeah, in the Upper Midwest it was goddamn cold this morning. I just saw this from KCRG in Iowa a few minutes ago...
When I was heading to church this morning the wind chill was -24, with the actual temperature being about -8. The current temperature is hovering around 0 with a wind chill of -17. We were actually warmer up here than most of my family in Iowa today. I attribute most of that to the fact the skies were clear in Iowa while up here we were mostly cloudy - hence more insulation. It's still pretty fornicating cold up here though.
Some of the FB groups I'm part of people were complaining about it being anything from 10 up to 50 and I'm like hold my beer. Along with the beers of everyone in Iowa.
I try not to lord over the current weather conditions because I'm worried that capricious bitch Mother Nature has some divine retribution in store for the Twin Cities, and will schedule it to occur when I want to go back to Iowa.
