The "bomb cyclone," with its whipping winds and foot-plus snowdrifts, has passed, but even more teeth-chattering weather has blanketed the eastern U.S. in its wake. Temperatures of 20 to 30 degrees Fahrenheit (11 to 17 degrees Celsius) below normal are keeping people bundled up from the Midwest to the Northeast, according to the National Weather Service (NWS). With the blistering winds fueled by the storm, temperatures feel even colder still, with wind chills into the negative double-digits.
This temperature anomaly map is based on data from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer on NASA's Terra satellite. It shows land surface temperatures from Dec. 26, 2017 to Jan. 2, 2018, compared with the 2001–2010 average for the same eight-day period.

Do you mind if I take this opportunity to whine?
*whines* It's soooo cold. I hate this. I can't take this. It hurts it so cold. It's painful. Literally. It hasn't been above freezing in days. I put new flannel sheets on my bed to stay warm and they feel like cardboard. sniff.
*whines louder* I can't even give the birds water because it freezes the minute I put it out and turns to ice. If I wanted this I would move to Canada. (sobs). My dogs don't even want to go outside. My backdoor is glass, and I screwed cup hooks into the surrounding wood and hung a quilt over it. And it looks ugly. *sobs.* I want my life back. When? when will it be normal again?
Okay! I feel better! Thank you for your patience.
