Just to illustrate how miserable other parts of the country are right now, it feels about 110 degrees warmer in Phoenix than it does in Minneapolis, at the time of this post.

It's around -12 degrees in Minneapolis, according to AccuWeather, but it feels like it's about -40 degrees. In Phoenix, it's about 64 degrees, and it feels about 70 degrees.

Other cities in Minnesota and North Dakota have temperatures similar to Minneapolis right now. To put this into perspective, school districts there are canceling school only because it's cold.

Watch some CNN reports on the cold in Minneapolis:

Here, where it feels about 110 degrees warmer, there are multiple people here at the New Times building (who shall remain nameless) who are currently wearing sweaters . . . indoors.

The National Weather Service reported this morning that "a large portion of the eastern half of the Nation" is being exposed to these "frigid conditions."

As for Phoenix, the weather forecast says there might be some "patchy clouds" tomorrow. Sounds awful.

And why is Pool capitalizes? I know, because even pee-temperature pools feel like religious objects mid Summer. I bet somebody is typing 'Heating System' somewhere up North. They do have those.

Give us your old, your too-frail-to-clean-the driveway, your Medicare-receiving masses. I am talking to you Mid West and Canada. The retirement money will not spend themselves.

-50 feels like + 40 during menopause. I just wish my car could be menopausal.
