Below Zero Temps, Think We Can Handle It ????

Let’s face it, we’ve just about had enough of winter….Snow, bitter cold, and how about today, 5 below zero. Not the way I want to start my day. But guess what it could be worse.

Now if your one of those people who loves to ask others “is it cold enough for you”, don’t be surprised if someone responds by saying “no”. Yea it’s gonna be frigid around here for the next few days with wind chills making it feel like it’s 10-15 below zero, but that’s nothing. It has been colder, way colder.
