The weather where I live in South Dakota, will be unusually wicked today, and its wind chill ridiculously dangerous.. Its the coldest weather in a generation, they said. Since the 1990's to be exact.
Nothing but fields and grass here, for as far as the eye can see. This means it sucks during the winter months.
Because there's a lack of hills and foliage around to help buffer the wind, that means its constantly gusty here.
I won't be leaving the house to go anywhere tomorrow, not with these ridiculous wind chill temps.

Ive been at the top of a ski mountain in those conditions...-11 with 45 to 55 mph wind....in the time it took to take mittens off and attach safety straps and get therm back on I was on the verge of frost bite on my hands...good thing they were quality down mittens.

no place or time to go out side or more then five feet from a fire

I certainly feel for you! I’m in Southern Saskatchewan, only about an hour north of the border to North Dakota. Our cold snap has been hovering between -30 and -44 degrees Celsius for over a week! And by Friday they’re forecasting a temperature of 1 degree Celsius. It’ll feel like T-shirt weather. Lol.
