I came across this AMAZING video on Youtube, it really shows just how darn COLD it is outside.
Meteorologist Eric Holthaus demonstrates what happens when you toss a pot of boiling water into the sky when it is -21°F with a wind chill of -51°F. Video shot Jan 6, 2014 in Viroqua, WI.
To my East Coast Tri-State area readers, PLEASE be careful Tuesday and Wednesday. According to Accuweather Forecast it’s going to be EXTREMELY FRIGID, tomorrow.
That cold along with the wind chill is going to make for some VERY hazardous conditions. Black Ice GALORE! If you’re going out be EXTREMELY careful.
