The Tragic Optimist

Windchill warning

I checked the weather forecast and saw we had a windchill warning.  The text made me laugh (because if you don’t laugh, you’ll cry, and if you cry, your tears will freeze to your face, and then you’ll cry some more except that your tear ducts will be frozen and that’s no good).

From the National Weather Service:

A WIND CHILL WARNING MEANS THE COMBINATION OF VERY COLD AIR AND WINDS WILL CREATE DANGEROUSLY COLD WIND CHILL VALUES. THIS WILL RESULT IN FROST BITE AND LEAD TO HYPOTHERMIA OR DEATH IF PRECAUTIONS ARE NOT TAKEN. WHEN VENTURING OUTDOORS…MAKE SURE THAT YOU DRESS IN LAYERS…AND WEAR A HAT AND GLOVES. [emphasis mine]
