Again, Why Migrate South?

I truly love Minnesota for three seasons. But....

Actual temperatures will be as cold as 30 degrees below zero at 7 a.m. Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service. Photo courtesy National Weather Service
Wind chills are expected to fall to 25 to 35 below zero Monday night and Tuesday morning. Dangerous wind chills as low as 60 below zero are expected Tuesday through Thursday morning.
Albert Lea and much of southern Minnesota is  under a wind chill warning from 9 a.m. Tuesday to 9 a.m. Thursday. A wind chill advisory is in effect from midnight Monday to 9 a.m. Tuesday.
Record low temperatures are possible. The record for Wednesday is 30 below zero, and the record for Thursday is 27 below.
The Weather Service states expected wind chills could cause frostbite on exposed skin in as little as five minutes.

Hope the heat stays on in both your properties. Those kind of temps beg the question of why birds continue to migrate south and then north again in the spring. If I was a bird I'd make the effort go south and stay.
