Intense Cold Headed Toward Northbrook

The expected high will be in the negatives next week. Brace yourselves.

You might want to stock up on some firewood, it's going to get very cold next week. According to Weather.com, the expected high for Monday is -9 degrees. Yes, negative nine. 

Fortunately, that's the worst of it. Unfortunately, you can expect single digit temperatures Sunday and Tuesday, too. 

What do you do in this kind of winter weather? Call in sick and stay near a furnace? Doesn't sound like a bad idea...

The very worst thing you can do in this kind of cold is to use your fireplace! All the warm air in your room goes up the chimney and the cold air comes down into your house.

we have a wood burning stove insert in our fireplace, and I would recommend it to anyone.
