Brrrr, It's cold outside!  I don't know why mother nature must do this to us.  We have a nice day when the snow melts, the sun shines, the weather is actually nice and you can almost go outside without a jacket on.   Then, BOOM!  We are blasted with arctic air.  I know that there are places that are even colder than here.  I have friends that live in northern Minnesota that are looking forward to temperatures of - 33 degrees tonight! That is not the windchill, that is the temp!   We do have a windchill advisory still in effect for our area.
