WOW!!!!! :shock: I've experienced that cold when we lived in Indiana. Deadly. People died because their heating stoves ran out of fuel or they tried to go somewhere and their car stopped leaving them stranded out in it. All kinds of awful stories.

Its so cold here. Its already below freezing at 6 pm. We are expecting an ice/snow storm tomorrow. I am hoping my kids are called off of having to go to work. Schools and gov agencies are all closed tomorrow but of course other businesses see $$ signs and don't care how employees fare trying to drive in this mess. They want to remain open regardless.
