A high temp of -1 below zero doesn't bother most North Dakotians' but when you add a constant wind speed of 25 Mph and gusts much higher it even gets the attention of the sturdiest of men.
My 1st reaction was typical... Oh Crap! As I looked out the window this afternoon and watched the bare trees blow in the wind I really started to think about what an awesome day it really is.
It's hard to picture or video "cold" but I think you get the picture from this short video. I start out with the flags at the Roosevelt Park Zoo and until I saw this video (as opposed to taking the video) I didn't realize you could see the traffic lights also blowing in the wind. When it's 40 some below zero you also don't expect to see leafless trees swaying in the wind. Even though the sun is not very high in the sky it is very bright reflecting off of the white blanket of snow which made it hard for the camera to focus in on anything. I had hoped to show you the ice hanging from the neighbors chimney but it just didn't work out.
