Zero




As I was taking Maddy to school this morning, we watched my ambient temperature indicator (or "thermometer, if you want to go all vintage-speak) drop from a starting temperature of 52 degrees inside the garage to 0 degrees, in about 5 minutes. People, that's cold.

Or as PaPa says, it's colder than a well-digger's butt out there.

So tell me, what are your favorite eupheisms for bone-chilling cold? Leave 'em in the comments.

I tried to take a picture of mine this morning too, but my phone camera doesn't like bright lights from the dashboard! It's WAY too cold in St. Louis without some damn snow on the ground! Can't we get a wind chill day out of school?

My siblings always said that if your buggers freeze it is REALLY cold. Pretty gross but always true.

Colder than a witch's t*t in a brass bra.... Yeah, it is cold here too.

You know it is cold when I tell my husband we can go to Costco later...

Ha! minniemama68 I told my husband the same thing. We just joined costco and are in love with it! Our plan was to go back on payday on the 15th but I told him it was way too cold.

My grandmother, who is a devout Christian, life-long church-goer, and is as straight laced and as proper as they come, says that "it's so cold it'll freeze your balls off!" When she said that in front of me, she just couldn't understand why my eyes were popping out of my head! I asked her why she would say that and she said, "Well, what's wrong with it?? My grandpa always used to say that!" We have never told her what it means. She's full of sayings like that. Don't even get me going on what she says if she thinks someone is having an affair......!!!!

don't hate me but it's been in the 80's here for the past few days. so even if in California we don't really know what cold is, my husband has always used the witches t*t saying
