People of the Midwest!

My sources in North Battleford, Sask. advise that a pocket of cool air will descend on your region this morning. Milwaukeeans venturing out of doors are advised to break out the long-sleeved t-shirts.

I'm reminded of a winter spent in Kapuskasing, Ont., site of the General Motors cold weather testing facility, when temperatures remained at -45C (or -45F, same thing) for eight weeks straight.

Let me tell you, we were grateful for our cardigans and long pants.
