Into The Deep Freeze

After I finally roused myself to go out and get the grocery shopping done, I ran into a friend at the drugstore. We commiserated about the pinching cold, and then he asked if I'd seen a forecast. I hadn't, but as soon as I got home and got the groceries put away, I looked one up.

Looks like I'm going to get real familiar with the inside of my apartment in the next week or so. We are going into Chicago Deep Freeze Mode. On Monday, we are scheduled for a high temperature of 10 below. Fahrenheit. That's 23 below to all you Celsius folks.

I am definitely cooking beef tarragon stew and roasted Brussels sprouts on Monday. Something to warm both the kitchen and me!

These temperatures are insane! I was in Florida until yesterday. There it was 85. When I got home, it was 5. An 80 degree temperature difference in 12 hours ain't normal! And snow too! We had some white-out driving. It was kind of scary, honestly. You better stay indoors the next few days. Frostbite in minutes just from the air temp, to say nothing of the windchill, is nothing to play around with!

Mindful of past weather emergencies, my dance class has set up a deadline for deciding if it'll be too cold to go dance tomorrow evening. Considering that I have to travel an hour and a half on public transportation each way, there's a good chance that, even if they dance, I might not.

Whoa. Stay inside and stay warm!

It's flooding here. And gales.

It seems that a large chunk of North America is being whomped by a "polar vortex," which in addition to being a geeky weather phenomenon, would also be a great name for a rock band. It's getting to the point that places like Minnesota and North Dakota, which are usually places that laugh in the face of just about any weather, are considering keeping the schools closed tomorrow. When Minnesota declares a snow day, then you know it's serious.
