SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – It has been decades since parts of the Midwest experienced a deep freeze like the one expected to arrive Sunday, with potential record-low temperatures heightening fears of frostbite and hypothermia even in a region where residents are accustomed to bundling up.
I’ve been through a few of these – I can recall wind chills of 80 below in both Chicago and Denver – but it’s no picnic. That sort of cold can kill you fast. Stay indoors if at all possible, and take care of yourself.
