    The weather app on my phone says it is about -4 here tonight. But, it's supposed to warm just a little and then tomorrow around noon we start getting the 4-8 inches of snow predicted for our area. I'm in SD so not really all that far from WI. The last couple of days I open the door to the house for the ducks and guineas and they just look at me. They don't even bother to come out. Wind chill tonight is supposed to be about -30. I'd rather have your southern weather!

    I think if they wouldn't have changed our WC chart those temps would be about what we're having. :-( YUK!!!

    Man that is COLD! I'm happy we finally hit 33 this morning after dropping to freezing early last night. Makes me sound like a baby, lol! I like cold but have discovered I don't like more than a couple days of saying in the 30's. I'm from Southern California so the 50's are consider cold out there.
