In Northern Montana wind chills of -50 to -70 weren't uncommon at all. I grew up there. It didn't seem to bother me much then. I walked to and from school on a daily basis with head scarves and boots and mittens. I can even remember on one of the coldest days (high school) the boiler didn't work, the country kids didn't come to school, but the town kids were all there, all sitting with our coats and gloves on...trying our hardest to listen to what we were being taught. As I look back now, I wonder just how many learned much of anything on those days.
Today is 40 years from then. Technology allows us to all be warm and safe in our homes thanks to trouble shooters who work for Alliant Energy and MidAmerica and REC. We don't have to worry about schools being open or businesses conducting business as usual...we have mechanics (thankful for mine) who come to start our cars and we have weather people who warn us far enough in advance that our refrigerators are filled.
It is a lot different today and I for one am most thankful it is. Wishing you a wonderful rest of today and a warm night whether it be on your couch with your blanket or snuggled up with your significant other. Sending you all warm hugs and love.
