Temperatures Plunging

It’s 9 degrees today in Chicago. I know because I heard it on the news.

When I checked the temperature here near Memphis, I saw it was 9 degrees. Only it didn’t make the news.

I suspect that Chicago has seen temperatures that cold and colder. Where’s the news?

I have lived here for 40 years. I don’t recall it getting colder than 10 degrees ever before, yet no one has mentioned us on national news. I guess we don’t rate. I think there are some that don’t even consider us part of the country.
