Of course nothing is going to make it easy in this weather. We're going to have -40 wind chills here today and tomorrow. Here in Michigan we have the added fun of lake effect snow whenever the wind is strong. I'm lucky enough to be able to take a bus in this weather, although waiting for the bus in this weather is no picnic. Another bonus of city living is that I only live a couple blocks from work. If I lived out in the country, I would most likely own a car like you do.
