Friday, Feb 02, 2007—Just Stepped out the door of My back Porch—and Stepped Right Back In!

It’s -07ºF with a wind chill of -26ºF on my back porch this morning. A predicted high of +10ºF  with WNW winds of 10 to 20mph, with the wind chill hovering around -10º to –20ºF! Graphic notwithstanding—I’m NOTwithSTANDING outside!

Here in Minnesota, the weather is ALWAYS a subject of conversation:

“Cold enough for ya, den?”

“Ya-sure, you betcha.”

If it gets any colder, conversations outside will cease altogether—we’re much too impatient to wait ‘til spring for the words to thaw out.

Whatcha think, den, Gentle Reader—cold enough for ya?

Schools are already closed here on Monday in some of the more rural areas... and some suburban areas, Reynoldsburg, Olentangy and Pickerington... Monday. Sunday night  even the City of Columbus Public schools were closed for Monday because of the cold.  I don't remember schools closing for cold in Wisconsin growing up... of course we walked 5 miles to school with no shoes... even though the school was only 2 miles from home...

I say lets send this weather back to MN and WI where it belongs!  Or Alberta? This may be an Alberta clipper....

We are about 10° above zero today!  I think all or most of the schools closed here today, one has already closed for tomorrow (we are not used to this!!!! this is cold for us...) 

I am boycotting your entry today.  Great imitiation of an abrasive,  shrewish voice but I tend to avoid that.

Jeff: As I write this we are at +2ºF with almost no wind. From Friday night until now we have not been above zero.

Maureen M: Today’s post was written absolutely tongue-in-check. I just finished reading the comments, and had pick myself off the floor after ROFL-ing. Still, I respect your position.
