Blame the messengers perhaps, but one thing we got right was the after effect - frigid temperatures with a bite to 'em!
Wind chill values in the 20s below zero were more than enough to cancel school Monday morning, as even with sunshine highs will struggle to exit the teens.
Thankfully this winter blast isn't here to camp out and set a spell - it's gone by week's end.
The hope for a warmer week next week looks optimistic; we just have to be patient (again).
Stay warm, my friends.
