And not in any cute-1940s-duet way either; it's just blamed cold: 3 degrees, 30 mile an hour winds (with gusts overnight as high as 50!). Get stuck outdoors in this stuff and you're at risk for frostbite almost before you start to feel cold.
The sirens never stopped running last night. Between slick-frozen roads, space-heater mishaps and trees falling before the combination of temperature and wind speed, emergency services have not lacked work.
The Midwest isn't Hell -- but at the right time of year, you can buy a bus ticket to the coldest circle from here.
