JCP Doesn't Believe in Wind Chill

bodyart200I've never believed in wind chill, hard to say why. Maybe it's too subjective, too melodramatic? Maybe it sounds like someone's making excuses for the poor performance of the thermometer? Maybe because it's only talked about when it's cold out. After all, no one says, "Well, it's 90 out...but it feels like 78 with the wind chill."

That said, the Midwest is hunkering down for an insane deep freeze tonight. Actual temps here in Madison are expected to go down to -25F/-31C.

And although I never give wind chill any credence, I had to stop and stare at the number -55F/-48C. I can't even comprehend that. Good thing it's fake. (And good thing I don't have to go outside if I don't want to. Cos I don't want to.)

This week's special
The snowbirds are gone for the season when a freak ice storm traps newcomer Ray on an island in Lake Michigan with a bewitching artist loner...and a killer.

So I guess you don't want to know its a balmy 27c in Sydney at the moment :) I think I actually need to buy another fan today, with the gift cards I got for Christmas.

The Green Bay Packers game is playing on tv right now and it does look awfully cold!

I'm trying to ignore the wind chills, but I'll have to be out in them tomorrow. The Midwest is frozen solid and Minnesota is part of the deep freeze. *sigh*

Must thank you for mentioning Packing Heat here a week or so ago. I looked it up and have started listening to the series. It's great!
