once again for my warm-climate friends...

Enjoy what you've got. I'm stuck with this:
Wind Chill Warning

Statement as of 3:19 PM CST on January 15, 2009

... Wind chill warning remains in effect until 12 PM CST Friday...

A wind chill warning remains in effect until 12 PM CST Friday.

Below zero temperatures this evening will gradually fall to 10
below to 20 below zero by sunrise Friday over southeast Wisconsin
and 15 below to 25 below zero over south central Wisconsin. These
bitterly cold temperatures coupled with west winds of 5 to 15 mph
will create dangerous wind chills of 28 below to 38 below zero.

A wind chill warning is issued when the combination of very cold
air temperatures and wind will create dangerously low wind chill
values of 35 degrees below zero or colder for 3 hours or longer.

These conditions will result in frostbite... and could lead to
hypothermia or death... if proper precautions are not taken. If
you must venture outdoors... wear several layers of clothing and
cover all exposed skin. Frostbite can occur in as little as
10 minutes. If clothes become wet... they should immediately be
changed for dry ones.

I'm making tea and planning to just curl up with a book for the rest of the night. Tomorrow, I venture out to be noble and nice and altruistic and junk, and give blood. Which means I'll actually have to get up at a decent hour. Horrors.
