Polar Vortex Brings Extreme Cold

The freezing weather is the worst to ever hit America in two decades. Most of Canada and areas of Chicago have been affected most by this climatic chaos. The winter storm has heaped mounds of snow on everything from cars to roads to rooftops.

More than a dozen deaths have occurred thanks to the blizzards and bone-chilling winds. And as for the airports they are closed as thousands of flights have been grounded due to the horrendous weather conditions.

The authorities have issued warnings regarding venturing outside the home. It is not only risky but could prove fatal. Frostbite and hypothermia are twin dangers that will beset anyone who dares to go into the external world without protection. 

Temperatures as low as minus 51 degrees Celsius below zero have been recorded in many areas. The whole phenomenon has been termed the polar vortex. The cold air seems to have spread and now virtually half of America is in its thrall. The bitter weather has everyone in a state of cabin fever

No one likes remaining cooped up inside their homes for extended periods of time. Yet that is precisely the demand of the day. And the trend will continue for some time. Last time such a record icy weather came to the region was in 1994. This does not occur on a regular basis. It is a once in a blue moon enigma.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
