The predicted low for the day was -20 degrees Fahrenheit with wind chills making the temperatures more like -50. A Chicago winter at it's worst! They were telling people to not leave their homes, so we just knew, school had to be canceled.
And it was- for three days in the winter of 1994. My poor brother was the paper boy and still had to deliver the papers. He divided the route up; delivering a few then returning home to try and warm up before going out again.
Fast forward 19 years while I walking out of Target responding to a text from Eric.
"I don't know if I want to go to Knotts today! It is so so cold. Feels bite you to the bone cold." I replied as I hurried to the car.
And it was cold-- at a bitter 45 degrees that morning, well us poor people in SoCal we're absolutely freezing!
So yep, those of you that live somewhere that actually get's cold- laugh away. As it really is pretty pathetic but really it feels so cold-- and today when the low dipped to 30-- holy cow, I thought I was going to turn into a popsicle!
And you have to watch this clip from Jimmy Kimmel- too funny and so accurate.
