Just plain COLD.....

What a change in the weather just 3 days ago we were having a beautiful day with 65 degree temps and now today we wake up to 15 below and a high of 7 below what a extreme change. And it looks like this cold arctic air is here for the next few days. Tonight the National Weather Service is predicting 17 below or colder with wind chills near -30 to -35 below. Here are some winter weather records that I though you might be interested in.

- Coldest recorded temp -128.6 in the south poll, Antarctica in 1983
- Most snow in one season 102 feet on Mount Rainier, Washington in 1971
- Largest snow flake observed 15 inches in diameter in Fort Keogh, Montana in 1887

Now those are some records I would prefer not to break.
