Let’s make some small-talk

Thursday, March 28th, 2019

Let’s talk about the weather. It is said this year has broken some records in terms of the most days below freezing temperature (around 60?), the coldest couple of days (about -50F with windchill) and the most snowfall in the month of February there’s been in years. A very quick google search has not entirely verified this gossip, but I do know for a fact that last time we felt warm air outside was around early October, there were a couple of days in which classes were cancelled due to the freezing temperature (it was the first time it happened since I’ve been here; reports of ~ -50F with windchill are, in fact, accurate) and there’s been A LOT of snow since Christmas until warm temperatures (now anything above freezing feels mildly warm) began to melt the snow about a week and a half ago (yes, it’s virtually April).

It’s sooo Cold Outside!

I’m sure you’ve heard Duluth is cold. But it’s really, really cold! Next Saturday is supposed to get as cold as -13. That’s without the windchill! Not only is the weather really cold, but we’ve had a few snow storms already. I drive a Camry now and the roads have been slippery. I fishtail every time I go into the turning lane. The slight hill that is in between the BWC and the Mitchell parking lot almost took out my car last night! I definitely suggest 4-wheel drive, salt, and hand warmers if you go to Duluth. I am going to try to brave Bentleyville soon, so I better be prepared!
