    Feeling cold? We're at 30 below normal


    "We're a solid 30 degrees below normal," said Jeff Johnson, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

    Des Moines is expected to have highs in the single digits above zero through Monday, while temperatures are expected to hover between zero and 10 degrees elsewhere in Iowa.

    And China being hit with coldest weather in 40 years...


    Siberian winds usher in record lows in Beijing

    A FREEZING cold front swept over much of northern China on Sunday with snowstorms snarling traffic and air travel, while some of the coldest temperatures in decades were forecast for coming days.

    Gale-force winds sweeping down from Siberia could result in temperatures as low as minus 16 degrees in the capital today, the Beijing meteorological station said.

    Such temperatures are believed to be the coldest in the capital in 40 years.

    It's pretty chilly over here in northwestern Illinois. I farted and it froze and rolled out of my pants legs, hit the ground and then broke like a glass bottle. When it thaws out it will make a little popping sound and smell like a rotten fish.:eek:
