For the second time this year, I slept with the heat on. It was just too damn cold.
The unofficial low Wednesday in Detroit was just 7 degrees, beating a 1911 all-time record low of 12 degrees, according to the National Weather Service in White Lake. Oddly enough, that was the same year Michigan adopted its state flag.
On Tuesday, Detroit also set a record low of 13 degrees, breaking the previous low of 16 degrees in 1983.
You KNOW it’s cold when the QLine doesn’t even run. The QLine streetcar service was suspended Wednesday morning due to a water main breaking and icing occuring.
The good news is that temperatures are forecasted to go above freezing Thursday and Friday which will turn the snow into slush. We should start to see temps make their way back up to the 40’s.
Get ready because next month, winter will arrive!
