How cold is it? Ask the experts

Even the pictures make it look cold outside.

All except for this doe that was chewing contently while resting in the snow Monday afternoon.

If the picture says anything, it is that wild birds and animals found in the Midwest are supremely adapted to all kinds of weather.

Imagine how long you would be comfortable sitting outside in the snow at - 8 degrees F.
