If you haven’t left the house yet this week, you’re probably better off. As I write this it’s currently 5 degrees and “feels like” negative 7 degrees. It’s so cold that, even inside a heated office building, I haven’t taken my jacket off all week. According to the current forecast, temperatures aren’t getting any more comfortable this week. Tomorrow we’re expecting a high of 15, Friday could bring a scorching 21 degrees and Saturday it’s back to 20.

Sometimes laughter is the best medicine, even in regards to the weather. Feel free to share some of the following “cold” jokes with your friends (especially the ones who have been b----ing and complaining about the weather all week on facebook).
