A lot of us have heard about what is going on in Ukraine and Crimea, but not all of us totally understand what is going on.
John Green, the vlogger behind VlogBrothers, Mental_Floss, Crash Course, and many other YouTube Channels, provides some insight into what is going on, with historical context.
Being born and raised in Canada, most of us are used to snow plows on the roads. Apparently, down in New Jersey, they aren't quite as prepared...
The reporter is alright, so don't worry. Just a little cold!

REASONS SNOWBOARDING IS BETTER THAN SKIING:
✓ Only one piece of equipment to chase down the hill.
✓ No way to ‘snowplow’ down a bunny hill, so you won’t look like a total loser.
✓ Snowboard can’t go two ways at once.
✓ Snowboarders look cooler … at least until they’re totally immobile in a full body cast.
✓ No chance of impaling yourself on a pole.
✓ Cheaper equipment … just bust the wheels off your skateboard.
For the second time this week the Sure Crop District has been put on notice for a Windchill Warning. In fact the entire province of Saskatchewan is under a windchill warning. Winds will get could get as strong (for our area) as 70 km's an hour Friday night through the over night and windchill values could plummet to minus 50.
Here is the full weather warning from Environment Canada outlining the Windchill warning.
Extreme wind chill values below minus 40 moving into Central Saskatchewan this morning and spreading south today. Dangerous wind chills near minus 50 likely tonight.
Arctic high pressure building into Saskatchewan will bring another surge of bitterly cold Arctic air today into tonight across Southern Saskatchewan. Northerly winds of 50 km/h gusting to 70 km/h are expected for a few hours early this morning in the southeast giving rise to locally poor visibilities in blowing snow. Surrounding locations may also see more localized blowing snow overnight as the system moves off to the east early this morning.
However, the longer lasting concern will be the extreme cold that will be flooding in today through tonight into the weekend. Across the south, temperatures will fall into the minus 25 to 30 degree mark early this morning. Coupled with winds of 20 or 30 km/h, central areas will see wind chill values dip below minus 40 this morning gradually spreading south. While winds will diminish during the day, there is little reprieve from the cold in store today as temperatures will at best hold steady before falling even further tonight. Overnight low temperatures into Saturday will fall to near minus 40 Celsius in most areas, where even a slight wind will generate wind chill values below minus 50. While some locations may see slight moderation in wind chill values with calm winds or brief warming in the afternoon hours, this extreme cold is expected to last into early next week.
At extreme wind chill values of minus 40 frostbite on exposed skin may occur in less than 10 minutes. At values below minus 50 frostbite may occur in less than 5 minutes.
Environment Canada continues to monitor the situation closely and warnings will be updated as necessary. Please refer to the latest public forecasts for further details.

After hearing 'Happy' by Pharrell Williams on the radio today, I just had to look up the video and play it over and over! This may be my new favourite song. Luckily for me, Williams has anticipated the need of the public (or just me) to obsessively sing and dance to 'Happy' and has created the first ever 24-hour music video!!
