Let me preface saying that I'm a Chicagoan. This is some of the coldest temperatures that we have ever seen. In case some of you haven't checked the weather, it's from -1 to -15 degrees right now.
Here is a crazy cool video that demonstrates just how cold it actually is. A water bottle is taken out of a car and is only outside for a few seconds before it freezes in this lady's hand. Thanks to Sharon Samuelson in South Elgin, Ill for this cool video!
Special thanks to Chicago Redeye.
