Coldest Day in a Lifetime! -46 degrees in Minnesota, -20 in Chicago! Cold, Colder, Coldest!
How much money in frozen pipe repair will this translate into...
I’ve been running the hell out of my vehicles, and I still ain’t getting no “global warming”-—AL YOU LIED!!!
We’re expecting a high of 14 in southern Michigan today. The great lakes protect us from the worst of the cold until they freeze over.
Global Warming. Oh, coldest day on record. Climate change caused by global warming.
It is amazing that anyone buys into that crap anymore.
Nonsense. Those are wind-chill figures. It’s a few degrees below zero in Chicago, air temp. It’s nothing compared to the record low temps for the upper Midwest.
Maybe. Current conditions in Chicago as of 10:00 am EST: Temperature 3 degrees F, wind chill -11F. Minneapolis, mostly cloudy and -11F. Milwaukee, 1F, wind chill -13F. Detroit, 13F, wind chill -1F.
I don’t. But, cold is cold. What did it get down to in Chicago last night?
My truck didn't want to start. Took 45 minutes to convince it. I think I may have boiled the battery a bit. It needed replacing anyway, but I was hoping it'd last until at least the end of March.
Wow, I thought we in Michigan had it bad! I had a friend who lived in Minnesota and he said it got so cold at times they had to treat the windows so they wouldn’t shatter in the cold. Now I see why
Yes, the Chicago number is wrong. The Minnesota number is correct. There were numerous locations in Minnesota last night where the atcual temperature was in the -40 to -45 range.
Now that I doubt. Some folks will put a sheet of clear plastic over their windows to help prevent drafts or to keep the glass from acting as a “heat exchanger”... But not from shattering due to cold.
I guess Mother Nature doesn’t buy into Global Warming. Or AGW. Or however they’re trying to peddle it.
“The earth has a fever”?!
Al! Al! Hey Al! Where are you?
The only thing making the temps bearable here in W. Michigan is the fact that the sun is out.
If it was overcast like it was the past week, I would be curled up in a corner right now.
Hmmmmm, that could be. It’s been a long time since I had that conversation with him. This was years ago
Weather.com has the current temp (10:30am CST) as -20F (actual not windchill) in International Falls, and -2F is the projected high.
China's foresight is already leading the Global Community
It rarely gets very, very cold when it’s overcast. The coldest nights are crystal clear, something to do with radiational cooling. Clouds act as a blanket. (H2O is a more powerful greenhouse gas than CO2.)
In the city, down to about 3-5 above zero. In the suburbs anywhere from -3 to -9 or so.
