Cold, huh?

   The coldest air we've felt in a long time has decended upon us, and reminds me of the coldest days I can remember.

   Growing up in the upper Midwest, I can recall a cold stretch we had in South Dakota in the mid-70's. Had to be -20 to -25 for about 4 straight nights---and that was the air temperature!  That was when "plug-ins" were popular--when you'd actually plug in your car to keep the oil pan reasonably warm.  Don't see those much anymore!   Take it easy and be careful in this nasty cold!
