The Weather Outside Is Frightful

So, it's -13°F here. With the wind chill (and it is currently very windy), it feels like -45°. We had 13 inches of snow yesterday, on top of the several inches we already had lying on the ground. Our storm door is covered in a solid sheet of ice. A state of emergency was called for Northwest Indiana last night. All roads were closed, except to emergency vehicles. Trains stopped. Schools closed. Trash collection canceled. Warming centers opened. Everyone advised to stay indoors. Jury still out on climate change.

I hope everyone affected by this cold snap is able to find someplace warm to be.
