I Think It's Time to Hibernate

Well, the subject line says it all. I guess this cold thing is happening all over the place, but I'm a total wimp, so I think I'm going to make myself a cave and crawl into it for the next several days. Here, for your reading enjoyment, is our predicted weather for the next week:

Partly cloudy. Lows around 7. West winds 5 to 15 miles per hour.
Mostly cloudy with very light snow likely in the morning...then partly cloudy with scattered flurries in the afternoon. Highs around 15. West winds 5 to 10 miles per hour increasing to 10 to 20 miles per hour in the late morning. Chance of measurable snow 30 percent.

And, thanks to the lovely National Weather Service, we have this extremely depressing bulletin:

Special Weather Statement
Expires 4:00 PM CST on February 02, 2007
Statement as of 3:19 PM CST on February 1, 2007
... Arctic blast to affect southern Wisconsin tomorrow into next week...
The first in a series of strong cold fronts will push through southern Wisconsin tomorrow morning. In the wake of this
front... bitterly cold air will begin to surge southward over Wisconsin. This Arctic airmass is then expected to reside over the region through at least the middle of next week. These frigid conditions will be the coldest temperatures of the season... and perhaps the coldest temperatures in the past decade.
At this time... the coldest temperatures are expected to occur from Saturday night through next Wednesday... when low temperatures may plummet to 10 to 20 degrees below zero... with high temperatures struggling to get out of the single digits.
In addition to the cold temperatures... dangerous wind chill readings of 25 degrees below zero or colder will also be possible at times.
Before this bitterly cold air arrives tomorrow... any persons or interests susceptible to very cold temperatures should begin preparing now. Ensure that your furnace and vehicles are in good working condition... and continue to monitor the latest forecasts for additional details on these potentially dangerous conditions.

So, it's time to make myself a little nest and go hibernate. Think maybe our cable lines will freeze? SMILE!

    I did not like these questions today! So, the fact that I got my second 10/10 of the week was definitely a nice surprise. Here are the questions.
