I check the weather… a lot.  Since we live in Iowa, whether we realize it or not, we base a lot of our lives around it.  When I jump over to NOAA (since it looks way warmer than it should outside), I see the following weather statement:

...BITTER COLD WEATHER THIS WEEKEND...

A BLAST OF ARCTIC AIR INVADING EASTERN IOWA...NORTHWEST ILLINOIS
AND NORTHEAST MISSOURI TONIGHT WILL PROVIDE SHARPLY COLDER
WEATHER AS IT LINGERS THROUGH THE WEEKEND.

In Valspeak, this reads “ARCTIC INVASION”.  So my first thought naturally was… Holy S**t, we’re going to be invaded by polar bears and penguins!  Kick A**!  Are they bringing the abominable snowman from the Rudolph X-Mas special, too?

Check out the full special weather statement HERE. Have a warm weekend (I hear whiskey helps…)  Oh, and don't forget those mittens!
