It's so cold outside. I can't remember it being this cold, ever. Maybe it's the fact that the temperatures dropped so drastically and so suddenly. All I know is, even for someone in menopause, it's cold, Take it from me, that is a rare thing.

It's so cold, the wind and brutally low wind chill temperatures make your skin feel like it's burning. The National Weather Service called Winter Storm Elliot a once-in-a-generation storm.

According to Forbes,

Winter Storm Elliott brought record-low temperatures in Montana and Wyoming on Tuesday as the once-in-a-generation storm barrels through the country, causing flights to be canceled, creating dangerous driving conditions, and dumping up to a foot of snow in Midwest and Great Lakes states.

Forbes went on to say,

Casper, Wyoming, set an all-time record low temperature on Tuesday morning, dropping to -42 degrees Fahrenheit, breaking a previous record of -41 degrees set in 1983, according to the National Weather Service.

 Bozeman, Montana, broke a daily record low Tuesday morning, with temperatures plummeting to -43 degrees, while Helena, Montana tied its daily record, at -35 degree

 

Here in the Tristate, we saw a Friday, December 23, 2022, low temp of around -6 and windchills in the upper -20s.

Apparently, when temperatures go that low, you can instantly turn boiling water into snow.

Some did an experiment with this in March of this year. Live Science reported,

In a video posted on Weather.com, a woman tosses a cup of boiling water into the air on a minus-22 Fahrenheit day (minus 30 Celsius) in Canada's Northwest Territories. The water starting out at roughly 212 F (100 C) instantly turns to snow upon hitting the air and blows away.
