I've lived in Las Vegas for 33 years. They talk about a WIND CHILL of 10 being terribly cold. Growing up in Minnesota, we never used wind chill. We just knew that if it was below freezing and there was any wind, that you better bundle up and cover as much skin as possible. We used to laugh at places around the country that used wind chill. You just knew it was dangerous to have exposed skin in that kind of weather. We didn't need anyone to tell us this.

Pshaw! This current crop of "Minnesotans" has no stones.

Went through about 20 of those in a year. Many's the morning owatonnabill recalls standing outside waiting for the schoolbus and hearing trees exploding in the woods as the rays of the rising sun hit them. We hardier types who engaged in logging in the winter grew used to icicles hanging from our beards and nosehairs. 'Course, in December and January, when it got cold, things were a little different...

Owatonnabill-it does not matter how cold it gets today. The kids just sit inside and play video games and watch tv specials about global warming.
