Ski Mask Weather Returns

Tom Skilling's forecast calls for a high tomorrow of negative five, the low a negative nineteen. His forecast for Tuesday negative six the high and negative 15 the low. That's a long time below zero.

CPS and most schools will be closed tomorrow. One plus is that the cold may have killed off most of the emerald ash borer larvae in Minnesota.

A man in Minnesota has a bicycle blog who routinely bikes in the cold. Here is his list of advantages to biking in the cold (tons of great photos of the wild up north). Thumbing through this Alaska blog puts this weather into perspective.

Other things to consider? LED lights, becoming ever present replacing standard flashlights, aren't affected by these frigid temps. Don't touch metal if its fifteen below. You could get contact frostbite.
