    Tonight its going around -20 to -30 with wind chill...its crazy. I was thinking of spraying my school with water and then they would have to cancel...

    I was thinking of putting my new rig (under construction) inside my "cubey hole" in my room because its so much colder in there (at least 20 degrees)...then i could just run the keyboard mouse and monitor right outside the little door, although it would be a PITA. It would be cold though.
