That is cold! 🥶


On Friday night, a new national record for lowest wind chill temperature was likely recorded at the tallest peak in the Northeast, Mount Washington in New Hampshire, with a reported wind chill of minus 108 degrees Fahrenheit – thanks to a temperature of minus 46 and wind gusts of 127 mph. Wind chill records are not historically tracked as closely as temperature records, but the mark would beat other lows set.

I can’t imagine how that must feel. Can you even go out in it without consequence?

Here in Charlottesville we’d be in one hell of a pickle. The electric grid is made of toilet paper and goes down when we get a bit of snow. 🧻
