From CNN

"About 250 million people -- 77% of the continental US population -- face below-freezing temperatures this week. But this isn't just a typical January cold snap. These are some of the coldest temperatures we've seen in a generation, caused by the polar vortex paying us a visit. If you're 25 or younger, "you've never felt this cold before," CNN meteorologist Tom Sater said. In the Upper Midwest and Great Lakes, temps will plunge to 20-40 degrees below zero. Wind chills will be even worse: 35-60 below (here's how to protect yourself,  https://www.cnn.com/2019/01/28/weather/wind-chill-explainer-wxc-trnd/index.html?utm_source=CNN+Five+Things&utm_campaign=4070111835-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2019_01_29_08_17&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_6da287d761-4070111835-87090417). There will be blizzard conditions in some places, too. Snow is even forecast for Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia. More than 3,400 flights have been canceled. The weather has already killed two people, in Minnesota and Illinois."

I probably didn't realize this cold is a record-setting cold.  I just hope that peoples' furnaces hold up.  I do recall going to work in -20 degree weather.  Fortunately, one of my co-workers picked up my neighbor and me so we did not have to stand on the corner waiting for the bus. 

Looking at the closures on TV, Ottawa County MI was not the only nearby county to have a lot of closures - so did Kent County (where I live) - and actually all the counties that were mentioned.  The closures are from this afternoon through Wednesday and I have an idea tomorrow will see additional closures.

Jackie, I'm happy to report that our section of the US is bright and sunny.  When I rolled  out of bed about 8 am, our temperature was 13F degrees and is now around 35 degrees.  I'll take it.  We are not windy today but often do have winds.  Hang on to your hats!

All winter long we complain about the cold and snow. Then suddenly we have a heat problem. After tonight we are not predicted to go below 70 for a week. We've been up to 90 every day lately. We used to see this as August weather. I say it's the windmills (bird whackers) making this happen.

Bring back Spring and Fall.

In other words, it's fewer birds that are causing the problem?  Just kidding!

Well. ---- I guess we are the only ones having weather (I know that's not true).  It's been around 30º for a couple of days but it has been leaving frozen rain/sleet on everything. My boxwood bushes in front are now one solid ice bush. Icicles hanging from wires have caused many down wires locally. Sunday should get us above freezing.  Extra feeding for our local wildlife.

Rick, we've been fortunate in that we haven't had a lot of snow.  We don't have a lot of ice, maybe except in March when we have had some doozys.  I like it best when I don't have to wear boots, however, I know our day will come.  It is 18 degrees now.

We are having what we consider cold weather. 😊  it got down to 30 degrees during the night.  Right now it is 1:40 central time and the temp is 57 degrees.  Next week is supposed to be warm in the high 60s.  Christmas Day is supposed to be around 70 degrees.

Mary Ann

Jean, we started out this morning at 16-18 degrees and at 4 pm it is 33 degrees.  I think by Christmas Day we will be in the low 40s.  I know 30 degrees is very low for you but I remember a friend who wintered near Orlando would tell about covering his plants occasionally.

RAMMEL

Still below freezing here and the ice is still on everything. The sun did melt some of it but then we got a dusting of snow. Still Sunday for 32°+

Rammel, it was 65 here this afternoon.  Felt great!!!  I know all about those cold wintry days.  Had plenty of them when we lived in Maryland, and funny thing, I didn't really mind it too much.  We moved to Florida because my husband (an Ohio boy) said he was sick of snow and cold.

Mary Ann, it is supposed to get to 70degrees here on Christmas Day.  I'll think of all you northerners up there in the cold.  But as long as there is heat, you won't mind, will you.  I do miss seeing the snow falling and it looks so beautiful when it is new and white.

Mary Ann

Jean, I really don't care what the temperature is on Christmas Day because I'll be inside where it should be cozy and warm.  I don't even want a fireplace.  Of course, I don't want a power outage, either.
