    Officially Below Zero Temps


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     DaElmersBack says this has been the earliest in the year where temperatures in East Kingsford, Michigan, have dropped so low. He photographed a thermostat outside his home on December 7, and says normally his area gets heavy amounts of snow before getting so cold. 'In December, our average temperatures are in the 20s, currently it is zero degrees [Fahrenheit] outside,' he explained. 'We've turned the heat up just a little, also we are covering windows in blankets holding the cold out. We spend our time inside, only going out when we have to. Kids aren't allowed to play outside either. When I go outside, it is a process of layering my clothes on... Quite funny actually,' he said.
