Holy cow, it's been cold and snowy here in central Ohio. If you are in Minnesota or another snowy area, bear with me. We are not used to this arctic weather, at least so much for sooo long.
We received another three inches of snow today, and tomorrow morning the temperature without the wind is supposed to be ZERO. This crazy cold number has become actually ho-hum in conversations here.
Now, in my eleven years in the military the coldest I ever was thankfully was like 20 degrees in Texas (and got to run two mies for a PT test in it). That is not counting other times in Ohio on drill weekends. Standing in formations stock still while shivering was not fun, neither was getting into a freezing humvee with unforgiving icy metal while clothed in an Army coat that didn't do the job.
I know some of you experienced horrendous cold here in the states, overseas, during training and in combat. Maybe you were on patrol, guard duty, in a cockpit, on a ship deck or a foxhole. I'd love to hear your COLD memories! Share below, or start your own discussion.
