As I'm sure most of you know (and are experiencing first-hand), the majority of the US is in the throes of a nasty-cold winter. While the east coast has been hammered with storm after storm, things have been relatively mild here in Colorado, which is quite uncommon. But starting on Monday, our temps bottomed out and the entire state was under a cold-temp. advisory. Schools were closed for two days while the temperatures plummeted into the -20's. Yes, I said NEGATIVE TWENTIES. Wind-chill at night got as low as -40 here in Loveland one night. Crazy, right?
