I cannot remember the last we had an arctic blast like this come through my area. Sure I see it on the news in the Midwest, Chicago always comes to mind, way too cold for me. It wouldn't be so bad if there was no wind! I was waking up all night with the wind cranking up against the house. I put out extra suet and bird seed for the birdies today, along with they have my Christmas tree set next to the feeder for a little added shelter! My daughter keeps saying "icy" and "I need a sled, Santa bring me a sled". Looks like that will be the focus for next Christmas. Everyone.....stay warm and cover up in extra layers!!!!
