"Baby, it's cold outside"

I'm listening to the Brian Seltzer version of this song as I write this. It's going to be cold here in the Chicago area beginning Sunday. We'll have subzero wind chills on Sunday with subzero lows Thursday and Friday. This is suppose to be the coldest December since 1993.

Lake effect snow began about a half hour ago. That's a good sign since it shows that it's still relatively warm. Lake effect snow is caused by the wind coming off of Lake Michigan. Usually Indiana gets the real heavy snow, but we're getting the puffy flakes and fortunately it's not accumulating. The snow will taper off as the temperature falls.

I guess a white Christmas would be nice.

Update: It's 3 above zero right now (Sunday morning)!
