It’s So Cold Outside That…

Temperatures have been frigid across the U.S. over the past few days.  So, how cold is it?

1.  It’s so cold, around 150 million Americans . . . or 45% of the population . . . have been under wind chill warnings and advisories, including all of us through at least Wednesday evening. More “miler” air is expected Thursday (but even that will have wind chills in the single digits). Then another artic blast rolls in Friday and lat through much of this coming weekend. We should be back to normal by Monday…hopefully!

2.  It’s so cold, AccuWeather posted a video of some frozen noodles suspending a fork in mid-air in Denver.

3. It’s so cold, you can dip clothes in some water, put them outside for a few minutes, and the freeze solid, allowing you to craft icy, invisible people out of them!

4.  It’s so cold, the National Weather Service shared footage of someone in Flagstaff, ARIZONA tossing boiling water in the air and watching it freeze.  A lot of people burn themselves doing that, so be careful!

5.  It’s so cold, a meteorologist in Lansing, Michigan was driving to work yesterday when her windshield cracked for no apparent reason.

6.  It’s so cold, people in the area have been sharing photos of the DuPage, Fox and Chicago Rivers…

7.  It’s so cold, Portland, Oregon’s largest sewage station has been running at half-capacity after one of their pipes froze.  A backup generator also froze and sent sewage into around a dozen homes.

8.  It’s so cold, Chiefs coach Andy Reid’s mustache froze during their game against the Dolphins in Kansas City.  And bottles of water at the concession stands were immediately freezing when they took them out of the fridge.
