Episode Narrative Brutally cold temperatures combined with winds in the 10 to 20 mph range to create dangerous wind chills across portions of northwest Wisconsin in early February. Wind chills below -40 were common February 3rd through the 5th. The cold wave closed schools, suspended some outdoor activities, and burst pipes because of the lack of snow cover. Power companies urged their customers to conserve energy during this cold wave, as the region's electrical grid became stressed. It was the longest period of cold since 1996. Lows in the -20s were common across northwest Wisconsin during this first weekend in February into Monday morning.
