Hey how’s that AGW-Climate Change-Global Warming (AKA: Weather) going for you, New Year’s Eve party-goers? Not so well. So sue Al Gore for ruining your New Year’s Eve festivities. After all, Al promised you that all the ice at the North Pole would be melted by today. Oh, and watch out for that pesky frostbite. You really do still want your ears, and your nose, and your fingers and toes, and other dangly pieces-parts, right?

The Chicago Tribune reports, “As subzero cold hits, wind chill advisory for Wednesday night, Thursday morning“.
With overnight temperatures dropping well below zero, the National Weather
Service has issued a wind chill advisory for Wednesday night through Thursday morning.
The advisory is in effect from 9 p.m. Wednesday until 10 a.m. Thursday. The weather service said wind chills could reach minus 30 in some areas. It warned people could suffer frostbite in as little as 30 minutes.
