Why I want to move

Clear. Extremely cold.
Temperature ... -17º
Apparent Temperature ... -50º
Humidity ... 66%
Winds ... NW at 14mph
Visibility ... 10

Our temps this morning (it's WARMED UP since the sun came up!) When I got up it was -26!!!!!!! This is the coldest day in 5 years.
Next week we're supposed to have a heat wave. Right now it's 40 degrees in Anchorage Alaska, and that's what will be coming down here. Yep, we're supposed to hit 30 degrees next week. WHOO HOOO!!!!

And have you ever heard of black ice? SCARY STUFF!!!! Can't see it, its invisible, but it can still get you killed if your car slides on it. Because our dew point right now is -26, our roads are covered with this stuff. And Dean will be spending his day on the road. So then people get in an accident, or slide off the road, get out of their car and get frostbite in about 2 minutes. Car battery acid is below it's freezing point right now, so don't bother trying to jump start your cars!

Our kids are home from school today due to the awful cold, too - we're at about 40 below with the wind chill. YUCK!!!

Stay home & stay warm!!
