Just want to throw this out there for all of our Midwest members. It's about to get brutally cold with temps, as far as I know, have never been seen.



Stay warm, everyone.

Darn global warming..

I'm north of you. It is just bitter and awful and the first time in recent memory that both schools and work has been called off. That is really a rare thing around here.

Schools are still open here as long as the windchill is -38 or warmer.

I think the double whammy of both snow and cold is what did it.

Supposed to have a "feels like temp" in the -50's here from tuesday morning til thursday night.

Good times, guess it's supposed to hit almost 40 on saturday though. Weather around here is a like a crackhead playing with a speak and spell. It's just an absolute disaster.

Fargo, ND, Tuesday night into Wednesday morning:



Living where I do, once the temp is below zero it doesn't really matter a whole lot, it's just another cold day.

If the people predicting a grand solar minimum are right, this is just the beginning.

To me -1 and -40s feels a lot different.

My little dog agrees.

lol, yeah the little pups do suffer a bit more. Just mean to say when the temp is a certain level of low, I can't get any more layers of clothes on and don't spend any more or less time outside.

We asked our office if there is a protocol for cold. We got laughed at. I am not one to complain about winter weather days off, but -40 as a high is a bit different..

Feels like temperature? Is that like the wind chill factor?

It was twenty three degrees below zero F here last night around one o'clock in the morning. There was a little wind and it did feel cold and dry outside so I have no clue what the feel like temperature was. I usually do not have a problem outside when it is like that if you are dressed warm, better than when you are being hit with a cold stronger wind that sucks the heat out of you.

This cold in not usually here the end of January, we usually have our january thaw this time of year so the timing is a little off. It may have been the warming we had, over thirty two degrees, a week or more ago that lasted for two days was our January thaw. Usually the bitter cold comes in early January or in the first two or three weeks of February. About seven years ago we had a month where it never got above 0 F and the nights were between twenty and thirty degrees below zero every night. That is the year the price of gas and oil went through the roof...Of Course. It cost over two grand to heat the house that year because oil was almost double the price it usually was.

This little cold snap is nothing, using a Feel like temp only makes people believe it is colder than it really is. We are used to cold and snow here, they are confusing people here with this crap, it is not bad if you are used to it.

We did have a Northern Michigan University student decide to go out and take pictures of some falls on the Yellow Dog river late last week, he went alone. His roommates got concerned when he did not show up that night or call but figured he might have went to a party or to someone's house. The next day they went to the place and found his car there covered in some snow, so they called 911 and they started searching. He went there thursday afternoon I think, the guys went and found his car Friday in the early afternoon, the cops got there in a short time, but they did not find him till Sunday sometimes, froze solid. He got disoriented and had gotten lost I guess, he should have had a compass or stayed on side the river to get back but screwed up. He might not have had cell service there, he has a lot of beautiful pictures on his facebook page. But a person should be prepared when they go out into the woods, and a person should have a partner too, just incase you sprain your ankle or hurt your back climbing through the snow. If it hadn't snowed so much, they may have been able to track him better.

You would think he would just back track the same way you came, it is so easy to get disoriented in the woods in some places where there are mineral deposits. It screws up a compass and also screws up your built in diretion finder. I have spent a lot of time in the woods when I was younger, but in the winter always went with someone to the area in case I got hurt. If I hunted or fished close to home by myself, I would tell the wife where I was and what time to expect me and if I was too late to call one of my friends to come check on me. I was taught this when I was young.

I'm so glad Wisconsin made the decision to declare a state of emergency. Too many people here think they can tough it out.
Many kids walk to school. The other really dangerous thing is if your car gets stuck and you are out in this weather, it wouldn't take long for it to get really dangerous.
