It’s cold as fuck outside right now, Blog Friends…if you’re anywhere in the United States (except for you warm assholes on the west coast and parts of Florida and Texas-and I mean that with love. And jealousy. Mass amounts of jealousy.) or Canada.

In fact, the Midwest is pretty much as cold as an icy tundra way the fuck up north.
Hey Santa, I think you forgot your subzero temperatures when you dropped off our Christmas stockings last month…
Luckily for me, I have a boss who took my threats seriously (Dear boss, either we get to work from home on Monday or I’m calling in sick.) Looks like I’m working from home this morning.
I’m also lucky that I have hilarious friends. One of my very dear friends, who spends much of her snowbird winter on tropical vacations, is in the Chi for this bitterly cold front…She shared the following on Facebook:
During this arctic tundra weather, I’m reminded of SnO-M-G, when we had the horrendous blizzard of all blizzards and then the temperatures dropped. And I did something really really stupid.
Aw hell, I’ll even throw in the ridiculous video of me thinking warm thoughts all the way to my snow throne.
I will not be leaving the warmth of my apartment today for ANY reason.
The positive of this whole, it’s-fucking-freezing-Mr.-Bigglesworth weather? We bought our ticket out of here for the end of the month. These baby snowbirds (snowchicks?) in training are headed to sunny Marco Island for a week of 70-80 degree bliss.
My son is there for a conference and a job interview. Please take him some hot chocolate, a scarf, and some warm socks. Thank you. 🙂
He’s welcome to come find me! But I’ll be in my apt until the defrost!
I shouldn’t say anything, right? Good luck and enjoy being in your house all day…
Definitely not! Xoxox
We had the deep-freeze here in Montreal last week (-27 C plus windchill). The temperature went up to the freezing mark last night and brought the freezing rain, making everything a skating rink. Like you, nothing is getting me out of my apartment today! Sick day!!
That sounds dangerous! I wouldn’t come out til that melted if I were you…
I love that you added Canada to the list.
We had sub-zero shit going on last week. -33F with the windchill is barbaric by anyone’s standards. Last night we got just over 4 inches of snow which isn’t that bad except some time during the night there was freezing rain so you had to chip through a layer of ice to get to the snow that you had to clear off to get to your car. Lesson learned, keep an ice scraper in the house because when your car is a big block of ice you can’t get into it to get the damn ice scraper that you left in the trunk. Learn from my mistakes people!!!
It’s insane how cold it is in the Midwest! And now that I’ve been a Californian for 3.5 yrs, I don’t know that I can ever move back. Hope you’re staying warm and sane!!
It would be easier to stay sane if BRIAN was working as much as me…
Yeah, so right now it’s colder in my zip code, than ANYWHERE in Anchorage Alaska! P.s. My zip code is located in an area of the country that is normally referred to as “The South”, however, today it is being referred to as “This-fucking-sucks, areyoukiddingmerightnow.”
Glad you are home and warm… and not in a bikini on a glacier, drinking Cosmos . Unless of course you are drunk enough to think that’s a good idea again. In that case, MORE VIDEO PLEASE!!!
Well, my little frozen southern belle, that is fucking cold. And no promises on repesting my stupidity…but maybe I’ll make another video…only time will tell!
Chrissy, You made my day. I love your video and your photo, snow queen. I’m in Denver at it was -26F windchill this morning. Almost a warm front compared to other parts of the country. However, they are saying 50F tomorrow and 55F on Sunday when the Bronco’s play the Chargers. Things are looking up. Thanks for the laugh. 🙂
Glad I could make your day! My goal in life is to make others laugh!
I’m so glad that you explained that photo. Otherwise I was going to think you were nuts and/or become obsessed with you. I’m jealous of your ability to work from home… I just have to cross my fingers like a school kid and pray for enough ice that my boss calls it!
Aussa, I am totally nuts, and you should probably become obsessed with me. It’s the right thing to do. Hopefully you didn’t have to endure the subzero temps today!
I live in Norway (originally from California) so we’re used to the sub-zero temperatures. We’ve never had -70 degree weather here in Bergen although I do laugh at the California’s who complain about their “cold fronts”. I’ve had to dig our car out of a snow mountain. Until you’ve done that, don’t complain, haha!
Man…I’ve actually (kind of) done that. Does your car being completely hidden by a huge snow drift count as a snow mountain?
I gave up arizona for north dakota. Dumbest mive ever. Stay warm!
Yeesh! I’m not the biggest fan of Arizona, but to leave the warmth of the Southwest for one of the Dakotas? I feel your pain.
Definitely glad to know there were purpose behind the photo. It is really too freaking cold. We have our heat pumped up so high I can’t breathe…but at least I stopped shivering.
Haha. Yeah, I was a little crazy…
