Below Zero Temps, Think We Can Handle It ????
Let’s face it, this is no way to start off a New Year. Our first major snowstorm of 2014, and temperatures falling to single digits and below zero.
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.
