I escaped the great mid-west last Wednesday night, leaving Chicago with the so called “Polar Vortex” bearing down on that city and others. I have inquired about relatives and friends since a wind chill of 50 below zero can produce instant frostbite. It is believed that at least eight deaths can be linked to this Polor Vortex, the latest 18 year old Gerald Belz a University of Iowa student, he was found behind an academic building on the Iowa City campus just before 3:00 am by campus police. The wind chill at the time he was found was -51 he was a pre-med student. This record breaking weather event has forcasters warning people to avoid talking outside. Mail delivery was suspended in several states. The commuter rail system around Chicago is also taking a beating, maintenance workers have resorted to laying ropes soaked with flammable liquid along the rails to heat rails that have contracted because of the cold temps, so they can be hammered back into position and secured. I have talked to people who have called Chicago home for 50 or 60 years who have never seen temperatures like this before. This Polar Vortex has truely been a first in a lifetime event for most people. Which makes me happy to live in Jackson Mississippi.
