Wind Chill Warnings And Sun Dogs In The Midwest

Thousands of flights have been cancelled to the extreme Midwest freezing  weather
Amtrak in Chicago puts its trains in and out a restraining tether
An arctic vortex of freezing air
Is lowering temps and with the wind chill very hard to bear
-50 degrees to -65 degrees in some places
Anyone outside without covering like ski masks will have frostbitten faces
Global warming may or may not be an existential threat
When rivers are turning into ribbons of ice global warming not a wise bet
The ice in cirrus clubs create a pair of sun dogs bracket the Sun
No additional warmth only refracting light to viewers stun
Weather like this makes us humans much less cocky
As a rare wind chill warning to stay indoors targets Milwaukee
Furnaces in the homes are on high
Already two people have suffered frostbite and died
With Ground Hogs Day just three days away
Freezing Midwesterners praying that Phil’s shadow on the ground is not displayed
