It was -31 degrees (below zero) here in Hammond, WI overnight, with wind chills up to 60 below zero. More of the same tonight. High today will be about -15. It's 100 degrees warmer in Aruba right now.

The good news, is that we will be over 40 above Sunday, feeling 100 degrees warmer than it's been.

How is everyone else fairing? Any burst pipes, frozen septic systems backing up?

Glenn

Hi Glenn. I think it was in the mid 20s here in NE Georgia.

Awww, its was only -24 last night, -17 right now in Hamilton, Ont. Almost balmy. Don't want to think about the wind chill. Brrrrrr! Maybe its time to take up hibernation. The ground hogs come out on Sat. What do you think? Six weeks more of winter? Someone should tell the ground hogs about this polar vortex thing.
