The wind is ruthless and the trees are making that oh-so-freaky cracking sound. The snow has stopped for the time being but the wind is causing drifts that toss it all back onto the roads. It sort of looks like long, white snakes are slithering to and fro.
The high for today was something like 20 degrees, but that was reached almost 12 hours ago and it has been steadily declining since. Right now it is a whopping 6 degrees with a wind chill of -11. I almost cried when I realized I had to run to a convenience store for fabric softener. In temperatures this cold you can feel the small hairs in your nose freezing.
Tomorrow we have a high of 6 degrees and a low of 2. I am extremely happy I can't find a forecast for the wind chill.
