    Here in central IL, too. Wind chill is said to be -11 right now. I can't verify that because I'm not getting out from under my afghan to go outside.

    We are a balmy -29C this morning, going up to a high of -18C this afternoon and then it's plunging back down to -30C tonight.

    It's almost bikini weather for the polar bears!! LOL

    It must be banned and done away with.

    Especially considering all your cold weather is headed my way this weekend. :( If anything, this weather is a good reason to keep quilting -- keeping North America warm!

    Marsye, is that the real temp at your house? If so, you'd better have the heat cranked up! That's cold!!

    Please keep the cold when it gets to your part of the country. We would like the weather to stay above 20 here.

    It's cold here, too, about 14 for the high but what's driving me nuts is the snow. It's snowed everyday since Christmas. Just 1-2 inches at a time but like every few hours. We did get 7 inches since this morning on top of our previous snow. I'm so tired of shoveling three or four times a day and having to clean off my car before and after work. It's never going to quit!! (sorry-I'm getting very whiney! LOL)

    I have been told that when we get this kind of weather down here, it is called an Alberta Clipper. I have been to Edmonton and I think it is colder now than when I was there on vacation.

    Today I was quilting while sitting directly in front of the heater. This is an old trailer and it only got to 58* INSIDE the house.
