So how about that cold? Yesterday low temperatures were reported in the -30 degrees Fahrenheit range, and today they say low temperatures were in the -40 degrees F range. That's almost the Celsius-Fahrenheit crossing point.
Affected areas are mostly the Great Plains, it seems, and central Canada (Saskatchewan, Manitoba, maybe Alberta). Not here in New Orleans; it's a little cold but not even to the Freezing Point.
Anybody feeling it? How are things going in these conditions? Not as big of a deal as the news is saying, or a very big deal?
Here is a link to a colorful map. I'll try to upload it. It looks like it updates hourly. Regional Map : Weather Underground
