It was -17° at 7:30am here for me Bobbie.   affraid    No idea of the windchill.  It's warmed up to 7 but feels like -8° as I type this.

And colder next week....they might cancel school on me.  Then I'll have even less than an 8-day paycheck between me and Februarys' bill.  But if we get that -40 or below windchills I sure won't want to be out in the middle of that highway and neither would the kids want to stand at the bus stop.....that's if they can even get the buses motors to start! The last time we were this cold for actual temps was back in 1979....when I got a nasty case of frostbite.  Sure don't want to go through that again.

Years of living in this area has taken its toll on my fingers, ears and toes too, Fif, although you certainly are out in it for much longer stretches than I have been for years. These days I find my little fingers on each hand start to ache almost immediately when I'm out in the cold weather. It's an unusual pain too, isn't it? Toes and ears follow soon thereafter, but those fingers really must have taken a hit by the dreaded frostbite.

There will be another round of snow moving in during the overnight hours tonight. I've heard 8-10 inches, then I heard 9-12 inches and not long ago, I saw 6-10 inches. I do know that a winter storm warning has been issued, but I don't know when it will take effect.

You got that right Bobbie....I have fingers and toes that go dead-white from the cold when the rest of the hand/foot is beet red. And the pain from that is almost indescribable.
If we get the -40° to -55° windchills predicted for Monday everybody here will be closed. Weatherman is saying we'll probably break alltime records for cold temps (which are over 100 years old). Now THAT is scary.

This morning it was 24 but at least the windchill was 6, not subzero. Snowing like crazy as I type this, has been for almost an hour now....only reason it warmed up a tad is so it could snow some more. Above average snowfall so far this winter. Already being labled as a long, brutal, extra cold winter around here. We are all SICK to death of shoveling already.

affraid 
Really sums it up. Take care you guys. It's pretty cold here for Atlanta but nothing like that.

I work with someone whose hands go deep purple at even moderate cold...being in the freezer aisle at the grocery is one of her least favorite things (although as I type that I realize it's been a long time since I've seen those open-top freezer cases in a grocery store).

Yep, that's brutal for Atlanta! We were just talking earlier today about the damage from frostbite - one example is that the old familiar finger ache comes on immediately, for example, when I make meatloaf and try to mix the ingredients with my hands. Sometimes I just have to ge the wooden spoon out because my hands hurt so much.

ESH! Michelle, I think that's going to be colder than Dallas. They're talking the teens here.

It stopped snowing.  Last I heard, there were tens of thousands of people without power.  We still have power.  I won't be surprised if we got 8 inches of snow.

We will do the best we can. There is a wind chill warning and the mayor upgrade the travel emergency to level Red. Meaning only people with medical emergency, seeking shelter, and emergency personnel like ambulance can be on the road. Most of the people who lost power should get power back by Thursday.

Warm thoughts to you guys in the Midwest! Must admit I'm kind of glad not to be in my hometown now....I think Atlanta's through the coldest of it (6 degrees night before last).

With all the snow and nasty road conditions, I'm not sure if she can or willing to get to the nearest library. The library has been closed all week so far due to the weather and bad road conditions. I don't know if any travel advisories been issued where Fiffur lives.

Library was open but everybody else was closed Mon and Tues. with wind chills of -46 and -33 I wasn't going anywhere. I remember the last time I was out for more than a couple minutes in those kinds of wind chills....I got frostbite. Still have circulatory problems in fingers and toes from that. Also, our roads were very bad and we were ordered by authorities not to go out unless it was an emergency.

My brother-in-law lives in Chicago. He went on vacation to San Diego on New Year's Day, and extended his vacation. I think he chose the right thing. The midwest really is having a rough go of it.

Glad you're okay, Fiff!
