With the "coldest air in a generation" descending on the upper Midwest I thought it would be fun to see how cold everyone gets over the next 48 hours. Hopefully our deer and other animals come through alright. It's currently colder here with the wind chill than it is in Antarctica (yes, I know it's summer in Antarctica:)!!

Maybe he’s training for another polar bear hunt.

Least he has his boots on so he won't freeze his, um..... toes......

You folks stay safe. That's some scary dangerous cold if something goes sideways..... guess you'll find the plumbing problems later.....

FWIW..... Sunday near 7000 ft on the mountain for the last birdhunt of the season we got snowed on..... a few flakes blowing around in the gulches... but snow. Flippin' cold in the wind with just a long sleeve micro-tex and blood about as thick as cold beer......

Sea level was even cold for us this morning in the low 60's..... good luck to all and stay safe. Somebody somewhere won't be for sure, our thoughts and prayers are with them.

Glad Jake got the lawn mowed before the big stuff hit though..... =D

Living within 20 miles of lake Michigan in SW Michigan is both a blessing and a curse. The blessing is cooler summer temps, and warmer winter temps. The curse is all the lake effect snow. Grand Rapids is forecasting a high of zero tomorrow. We haven't had a daily high temp that low since 1994. Currently we are having whiteout conditions.

the winter of 2013/2014 was the coldest winter since 1893 in the UP,,,, in 2014 at this time we had 42 below, and that was not for a day or so, more like a week......

at my south home here it is 22 below, but will be 40 by Saturday, so no big deal,,,,,,,,

Where this is 1-2 days of cold, we had a week at a time of really cold, and then normal cold in between. We also had about a foot of snow that came with one of the really cold blasts here. Might have been the only day I've ever not made it to work due to weather.

Falmouth ,Michigan where my cabin is ,is zero right now. Cousin texted me 12 more inches of snow. That makes 18 inches on the ground . In 2014 ,I remodeled our house there, with a winter much like this . During turkey season , some snow still around . We found 9 dead fawns with snow on top of them. With a winter like this, could be the same .During bow season during a 3 day weekend this year ,my wife saw 32 deer . Many she said were fawns. Looks like we could be in for a repeat of 2014 . Hurd was rebounding , but nature is the boss , I guess. Lots of turkeys this fall. Cousin sent a pic the other day , must have been a hundred plus turkeys . They were feeding around a silo. They know where to feed.

It’s a lot warmer here then what they predicted. Minus the wind we have had, it feels a lot warmer too. 5 degrees with no breeze.

I know some of you folks have been cold. But, these weather predictions are ridiculous.

A pre-dawn 14 in my part of VA this morning. No minuses but, with the humidity, it's a wet cold. lol

Last week, I was working near DC. It was 19 and the wind was howling on Monday. I couldn't feel anything. Would have been a good time for any elective amputations. Still, I saw a teenager walking down the sidewalk in shorts and T shirt. I don't know what to say about that.

-32 on the truck thermometer this morning on the way in to work. It's pretty calm so it doesn't feel too bad.

From: Northwoods

We've hit -40 real temp on the vehicle thermometers the past two days and bottomed out the home digital thermometer after reading -59 for a period of time yesterday (it typically runs cold on the north side of the house and when it gets real cold I tend to think the temp reading gets skewed). We're in Northern Minnesota and once its cold (-10 or so), its just cold and the temp doesn't really seem to matter.

Whatever the actual temp has been, its definitely showing its effects on the house by frosting windows and door knobs, etc. The outlook for the weekend is better as its supposed to warm up nearly 70 degrees by the weekend (getting up to the high 20's).

Forgive my ignorance, living where it is probable we will hit 70 today, will these extreme cold temperatures in many of your states cause a deer die-off? I'm not talking about deep snows, which I know will kill deer. But will the extreme cold temperatures alone cause deer to die, or can they withstand it?

From: Brotsky
31-Jan-19
The extreme cold will not kill the deer. Deep snow, lack of food, and prolonged cold kill deer. Most winter kill actually happens later in the winter or early spring as the deer gradually degrade due to all of the above.

Tues. Night it was -39 with a -56 wind chill. Wed. night not much different. Currently -12 with -28 wind chill.

Brotsky is correct, Marvin. A bigger concern in the midwest/northern plains is icy conditions. We can sometimes get an ice storm, then prolonged cold weather. They can struggle to be able scrounge up enough grub in those types of conditions. Especially hard on pheasants.

"will these extreme cold temperatures in many of your states cause a deer die-off? I'm not talking about deep snows, which I know will kill deer. But will the extreme cold temperatures alone cause deer to die, or can they withstand it?"

It's such a credit to these animal's hardiness and natural insulation that they survive out-of-doors in these conditions. It's amazing isn't it? They're so much tougher than we are. And all the while, they're dodging predators that are trying to eat them on a daily basis.

Cut off electricity and food supplies to the cities for a short period and you'd have mass die-offs in perfect weather, much less these temps.

10 below with a stiff wind. At least it’s not snowing. Watched a deer yesterday and all you could see was his head and neck sticking out of the snow. I jumped him off my snowshoe track. I walked by him and he struggled back onto the trail and went the other way. The loggers tell me that up on the ridges they are dealing with over 8-10 feet of snow. The logging roads I drive in to hunt are very narrow. CB’s are a must to avoid getting crushed by a tractor trailer loaded with logs.

It always cracks me up to hear people here in Ohio ,say the good thing about "our" cold spell is that it will kill the mosquitos off. Yea right i say, what about where I fish and bear hunt in Ontario ? They have 30 below every winter. The mosquitos are ALWAYS there ,every spring and summer, much worse than here in Ohio. Just a humerus thought of mine .

Minus 25 F, before the windchill, here this morning. It was supposed to be gradually warming up, so I was planning a lynx day. Cat can live another day or two!

But I could get an easy shot at a brass monkey whining outside my door.
