It’s not often The Ohio State University campus closes down, but it’s reflective of the real danger of extremely cold conditions.
One vivid memory growing up in Wisconsin was when I came in the house after playing football in the snow and told my Mom that I couldn’t feel my hands. Â She ran some cold water on them and they immediately stung with pain. Â It felt like scalding water. Lesson learned. Be careful out there and hunker down if you can. Â And it could be worse.
The current temperature on this Monday morning in my La Crosse hometown is minus 19 degrees without any wind chill.
