Frozen in Washington DC

The  hot air in Washington DC is nullified by the wintry storm.  The region has been under the grip of an arctic cold spill for about a week now. Local Office of Emergency Management and Homeland Security issues cold emergency and hypothermia alerts almost nightly.

The cold air quadrupled by gusting winds amps up the freezing effect.  As an example, today’s alert warned area residents to be “prepared for temperatures and/or wind chill values to be below -5 degrees.”  Warm thoughts and warmer drinks help.

Unfortunately there is no relief.  The forecast map (Accuweather.com) shows that DC is not alone in this big freeze. Our neighbors to the north and north-east has it even worse.  And it is not going to get better any time soon.
