  • Chicago braces for brutal temperatures

    Chicago is bracing for bitter cold nearing record-low temperatures this week.

    One of the coldest air masses in years will drop temperatures to around 23 below zero by Tuesday night, according to the National Weather Service, with a daytime high of about minus 14 on Wednesday and another plunge to minus 25 overnight.

    The lowest temperature ever recorded in Chicago was minus 27 on Jan. 20, 1985.

    ďIf you donít have to be outside, donít,Ē said National Weather Service meteorologist Amy Seeley.

    The frigid conditionscould feel as low as 50 degrees below zero with 30 mph wind gusts, according to the weather service. Frostbite could hit in a matter of minutes, experts say.

                Sounds like streaking weather!

                  The forecast for tomorrow night's low is 3 degrees off the lowest record recorded in Chicago EVER.

                    It must be due to Global Warming Change

                      Fun thing to do with kids: take pot of boiling water outside and fling into the air ó itíll freeze before it hits the ground.

                        Something less fun to do...

                        ...walk your dog while playing Empires and Puzzles on your phone. The battery froze up and wouldn't work any more, so the phone shut down. Took a full ten minutes back in the house before it would power up again!

                          wow! I'm impressed you didn't just put paper down for pip. How'd the little one handle the epic cold?

                            Well the news is fake anyhow, I'm not going to believe what they say the temperature is.
