That cold front rolled in last night, the kind of cold front variously known as Alberta clipper, arctic clipper, or jesushf*ckingchristitscoldoutthere clipper. Yes, that kind of cold front.
High today predicted to be -3˚F, -19˚C for those who roll that way. (That would be the entire rest of the world, I think.) When I let the dogs out last night the door wouldn't stay shut afterwards -- wind was so strong it kept blowing it open, even when I swore I had latched it. I even thought about throwing the deadbolt, but eventually I managed to get it latched firmly.
Actually, the forecast for this cold front was worse a few days ago. Now it has moderated.
Yes, that is moderated. A few days ago the weatherpeople were predicting highs below zero forever nearly a week.
Never fear, however; I am wearing a wool sweater -- handknit! -- and wool socks -- handknit! -- and will don a wool hat -- handknit! -- and wool scarf -- handknit! -- fleece-lined gloves before I venture out today.
For comparison, yesterday I was out gathering signatures on my petition to have my name on the ballot in April (20 signature of registered voters in my district, required by law in WI) I shed my parka early and wore only a cotton sweater with long-sleeved cotton t-shirt under it. Still too warm.
