It's hat weather here in Wisconsin. It's nice and sunny, but the temperature stayed below zero all day today, which it doesn't usually do. And they closed the schools, which is uncommon to put it mildly.
They usually only close the schools when there's a big snowstorm that's timed just right. If a snowstorm gets going at midnight and dumps ten inches of snow or more by ten the next morning, that'll do it. But if the same snowstorm starts at noon, it's tough luck, kids.
My son, of course, insisted on walking to his friend's house today. I made him wear his hat. I saw –15 degrees F on the thermometer last night. That's –26 degrees C. When that kind of cold gets a wind under it, you really do need to wear your hat.
The local paper featured a nice winter scene from down by the lakeside, taken by one of their staff photographers. I'd like to run it here, but I haven't been able to contact him yet. Wonder where he is?
Probably out taking advantage of the nice weather.
