Baby, It's cold

Temperatures have not seen the 40s for days...  The streets need to have flags posted reading, "ice, ice baby - too cold," but no one wants to go outside to post them.

And with the winds channeling "a twister, a twister" a la Dorothy Gale, we're starting to wonder if we'll wake up in OZ instead of here.
It's been so cold, in fact, that even little man is running into the school in the dark, windy, cold mornings to escape the frigid outdoors.  His nose and upper lip are raw from blowing - so we've lathered them up with vasoline for temporary relief.  His eyes tear up in the winds.  He now insists on zipping his coat, pulling down his hat (though "not on my eyes, Mom!"), and even lets me put on his gloves.
The weather outside is frightful. And yet, winter has yet to begin...

It's cold...seriously cold. And that last shot makes me think I'm going to get a cold.
