For a second there I thought you were referring to emotionally, not temperature wise.
I feel like an argument can be made for both, tbh-

I think we're supposed to make it up to 51F. The really cold air just quite didn't make it all the way down to Memphis.

Honestly, the notion of wind chills at -65 degrees (or about -54 for those using Celsius) scares me a little. Frostbite in 5 minutes or less, and I'm trying to imagine ANY vehicle operating in that weather.

Lowest wind chill I've had in my area was -38 degrees (really, that's close enough to the shiftover that I'm not converting that to Celsius) but that was a few years ago. The temperatures now in my area? Actually not so bad for this time of year because it's in the positives in Fahrenheit.

With a name like "Frosty" you'd probably fit right in to the cold weather, no?

Lived with cold winters almost my whole life (there were a couple years I spent in Colorado that felt VERY tame by comparison), very used to snow and having to do a lot of shoveling. I've even driven in near-whiteout conditions once or twice (with visibility so low that road lines are literally the only guide).

I'm only resistant, though, not totally immune. And probably less resistant this year due to my recent diet (less blubber).


Friendly reminder to everyone while I'm still here - if you're in one of these cold areas make sure your thermostats have fresh batteries. Someone's thermostat failed in my vicinity and it caused six figures in damage from burst pipes.

Have you watched any news stories covering why the weather conditions are what they are?

FLOOFY!
Next weeks forecast for my area calls for daily highs of 40, 49, and even 52!? Forget the extreme hot or cold, I find it ridiculous how often we swing from one temperature range to the other in a matter of days :eek:
But that's normal for the Midwest... especially below the lakes ugh..
On the plus side, I found out MFF is the closest con to me, within 1hrs drive! I'm so excited for when I can finally go to it, so I can forgive the Midwest's awful weather I suppose.
