In some places the temperature dropped below 20 degrees Fahrenheit! And, hardly ever climbed above 32. I don't think it takes a dog with a PhD. to tell you that it freezing cold. But, if it does here you go.
But, we soldiered on, with our less than ideal burrito, and our Potato Oles (a tex mex tater tot sort of thing, sinfully delicious). Eventually ending up in Omaha, where the temperatures were hovering in the mid teens. It was so cold they closed the Scheels sporting goods store at 6;00 PM. Of course, that worked out ok, because it was New Years Eve.
We are back, in Ohio, and the cold weather has followed us. Things are not looking bright, temperatures are dipping dangerously close to the low 20s. Life is slowly being destroyed by the inexorable cold. We will keep reporting as long as possible. There is no way of knowing how long we can hold out.
