    Today is bitterly cold, with an icy wind.

    I´m sorry to read that. Here we had some refreshing autumn days, but it looks like it´s going to be very hot today.

    When we were in Minnesota we learned the expression "wind chill". This is what it means: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wind_chill. The term is not use in Sweden, despite the fact that we also get strong winds here. Because of this, temperatures given in weather forecasts often grossly give an exaggerated view of temperatures, I mean like 15 celsius without wind chill when the temperature is closer to 2 celsius when wind chill effects are taken into account.
