Sure, the weather sucks. But some of us feel like singing, anyway.

Cold as ice by Foreigner comes to mind. She's so cold by the Rolling Stones seems fitting. Most appropriate, perhaps, is Baby it's cold outside, a cute little winter ditty.

Of course, you could always make something up on the fly. How about Can't feel my extremities tonight, sung to the Elton John tune from the Lion King, or Freezing (nothing more than freezing), similar to that sappy song by some dude named Morris Albert.

With a wind chill warning in effect, let's hope all of us adhere to Bruce Springsteen's advice and just Cover me.

Environment Canada says there's only a high of -31 C expected today. The wind chill will make it feel like -50 out there this morning.

For New Year's Eve evening, the temperature will fall to -34 C.

On Wednesday, Jan. 1, expect a clear, frigid day and a high of -27 C, while Thursday will feature a high of -21 C under a bright, sunny sky.

We'd take the Summertime blues over this!
