    Right now, it's -36F with the windchill here. We've been in this deep-freeze since yesterday, but are supposed to get relief tomorrow.

    I was debating posting because I know it's not that cold compared to everywhere else, but it really is (for us ;)).

    We are bracing for -55 to -60 wind chills at the beginning of next week. They say we will be hit with the coldest air mass since 1996!

    The low temp today is 47. High is supposed to be 64.

    The kids here complain that it's "freezing" anytime the temp is below fifty.

    You must be near me. ;)

    Here too! And not just the kids, but the adults too! :lol:

    I've been reading about these negative temps and I don't even know what I would do. The coldest weather I've ever been in was in the teens. I can't even imagine single digits, much less subzero temperatures! :dizzy:

    Last night it was 50. My feet were so cold I had to put on socks--I tend to be barefoot all the time at home.

    Now it's 36, and I am not even considering going outside.

    Tonight, it supposed to reach a low of 20.

    UGH!

    I don't know how anyone survives with temperatures near 0. I would likely die :)

    I need to move to Miami, here it's more my kind of weather there.

    You must be near me. The actual temp is supposed to -25 to -30 with wind chills reaching to -60. They are closing the University in my town on Monday, but no other school closings yet.

    I see the governor of MN closed all schools in that state on Monday.

    I just read MN governor closed all schools in state on Monday

    From CNN
    That would mark the lowest temperature in a decade for Minnesota, where Gov. Mark Dayton canceled classes in public schools statewide Monday. "I encourage Minnesotans of all ages to exercise caution in these extreme weather conditions," he said in a statement

    We're currently in the 50's with highs expected to be in the 30's for the upcoming week. I wish we were getting some of this snow everyone else is getting...I'd love a snow day!

    It's quite lovely where I am, like the high 70s/low 80s at times. This past December seems to have been warmer than last Dec. Jan is when it rains. It's rained on many of my b-days in mid-Jan.

    It's our 4th snow day due to 1 degree temp. The
    superintendent stated on her school closing message that there was a windchill of -15 degrees.

    The other 3 days were due to outrageous amts. of snow before Christmas break. This is Buffalo and lots of snow is part of life here, but winter is just out of control this school year!

    Ummm... I'm not sure what the temp right now is. Tomorrow is supposed to be pretty "warm" compared to Sunday, Monday and Tuesday where the temps are not supposed to get out of the negatives and I just watched the news and they said wind chills could make it hit NEGATIVE 50! Ohhh why did I move from Florida? BRR

    Brrr.... It is going to be cold here! -20's with -50 windchill! Very excited to have a 3 day weekend! Good thing the governor in my state cares about the kids, because I know our superintendent would not have called school off!! Just too cold to have the kids wait for the busses or walk to school!

    I feel like a wimp, but they're saying possibly single digit windchill Monday. My Louisiana blood doesn't know how to deal with that.

    I'm in the same boat. Most of my students don't have anything heavier than a hoodie or fleece jacket.

    I have that problem too! I hate wearing a coat. This is one time it is great to be an adult and not have to wait on a bus to pick me up. It makes me move all that faster and into in the building.

    Expecting 25 below zero in our area and many school closings for Monday. The buses don't start in that kind of weather.

    Right now it is -6, but I don't know the windchill. Probably -25 or colder. So cold, my hubby's remote start wouldn't start.

    I am lucky here in Oregon. No snow, and the coldest it has been is about 25 or 30 degrees.

    I am thinking of all of you in the cold. How are you keeping warm? My DH and I discussed how we would keep our house warm in that kind of weather. My DD lives in a mobile home. I would not hold out any hopes of her keeping warm. We would probably have to drain all her pipes.

    I woke up this morning to 4 degrees (real feel -20). By Thursday, it's supposed to be in the 40s, though. Thank goodness for that.
