How … cold … is it?

You know it’s cold outside when you go outside and it is cold.

No mail delivery. No school. No state government.

Blame the Orange Man for the government shutdown? We swear in Tony Evers as governor and one month later …

Leon’s drive-in, Milwaukee, is still serving frozen custard. Believe us, the custard IS frozen.

Walmart shoppers are advised to wear an extra pair of pajamas.

It is 50 degrees warmer in the Stately Manor refrigerator.

Grandpa’s teeth are chattering and they’re still in the Polident jar.

Due to the extreme cold and wind, the Madison Police Department is canceling all misdemeanor and felony criminal activities.

Criminals, please take note, it is too cold to commit crimes. Stay inside and read, watch Netflix, go on Madison Area Crime Stoppers and help catch other criminals, anything, but for the love of polar bears, do not go outside and commit crimes.

    Broke the record for the lowest high temperature for January 30th with -10.

    The previous record (-1) was set 68 years ago today, on the same day as the coldest [-37] temperature ever recorded in Madison.

    NBC15 issued a 4 (severe) on its weather impact scale; a first.

    Donald Trump is feeling the heat these days. So will Robin Vos the with the way Foxconn is burning wisconsin


  4. AnonyBob says:

    Where are the jobs? Conned by Fox: Walker’s legacy, with Vos and Fitz in supporting roles. Think they sound defensive enough?


  5. madisonexpat says:

    How much money has Foxxconn received from taxpayers? Anyone?
    Its not like Solyndra is it?


  6. madisonexpat says:

    It’s so cold that Progressives are spending their own money.


    • richard lesiak says:

      Really? Ask Vos about the 14 EXTRA staff he hired at over a Million a year. Or; the OUT OF STATE ???? law firm he hired at 850 k plus expenses, etc. per year. A lot of people have stuffy noses this time of year, but they can still smell something rotten coming from Vos’s office.


  7. Cornelius Gotchberg says:

    Generally there’s a birth spike ~nine months hence after events that keep people indoors for days at a time.

    A word of caution for morally lax, maniacally lascivious Lefties to wear protection and, fer the good cryin’ out loud, Stay_Away_From_The PIPE!!!

    But heaven forbid, you repeat anything but the initial breathless story (a la Covington Catholic)
    Meanwhile, Bob, Bald, Everley and Lazy-ACK are cheering – YEAHHHH!!!! WISCONSIN IS LOSING JOBS!!! THAT’LL show those Republicans and that Walker (who in case you didn’t know, is no longer in power)!!! It’s called calculated risk – sometimes you’re wrong, sometimes you’re right – something not too many Dems know without ever had running a business. Evers is such a saint and so savvy, that he should have no problem cleaning up a mess if there is even a mess.


    • AnonyBob says:

      These aren’t lost jobs; they never existed. But it shows how good the GOP is at “spending other people’s money” (as y’all love to say) on for-profit business. A LOT of money for an inflated number of promised jobs. BILLIONS to a large but shady foreign business known for not following thru on expansion promises. All to shore up Walker and the GOP’s sorry job creation numbers for his re-election. This was campaign politics, not economic development and taxpayers are literally paying the cost. Thank god I no longer pay Wisconsin taxes. No one is cheering; those are outraged cries of “I told you so!”


      • madisonexpat says:

        Those jobs that never existed are back again. Whoops!


      • Cornelius Gotchberg says:


        ”No one is cheering; those are outraged cries of ‘I told you so!’ ”

        Excuse me, I didn’t catch that?

        Think The Donald did a Hopey Changey groveling bow?

        Me either.

        Ah Lefty; so MUCH suffocating ignominy, so little time!

        A large multinational manufacturer reverses itself based on a call from Trump instead of market considerations? Don’t be so gullible.

    All I know is what I see: a lot of guys building a big building. And a lot more people building needed improvements to I-94 from Chicago to Mke. We note the whining from Up Nort’ people who didn’t get their Free Money from eagle-shit this year. Yah, life is unfair and then you die.

  11. madisonexpat says:

    I’m thrilled that you’re happily paying high taxes. (I hope you’re in all Democrat governed Illinois.)
    Remember our discussion about karma?


  12. madisonexpat says:

    OB, the building and road improvements aren’t building themselves.
    I guess they’re shovel ready.


  13. madisonexpat says:

    And speaking of karma and taxes….. Gov Northam gets Kavanaughed and the Left howls for HIS scalp. Funny how demanding they are. Couldn’t happen to a better party.
    Gov Cuomo has a $2.5B budget shortfall because the State and Local Tax Deduction has cost the wealthy some big bucks. Since NY and CA have their top 1% paying 40-50% of the states tax they are leaving. Voting with their feet. IL, NJ also hardest hit.
    Trump! You magnificent bastard!
