We had a blizzard yesterday - about 40 cm of snow and -12 C most of the day with wind chill of -30.
Raining a lot - temp heading to plus 9 C then down to minus 9 C tomorrow. Another quick freeze. Ugh.

Wind chill is supposed to indicate temperature on naked skin, and you will not see a lot of skin in a blizzard. It is somewhat relevant if wearing a wind-permeable outer layer of clothing, but no sane person does that either.
Well, to us, windchill is an indication that, even though it might only be X temperature, it's freezing out there on your face, which is always exposed to the weather. It also can be so cold in the windchill that frostbite is an issue but not very often. It's rare for it to go below -10 here for any length of time.
You get in touch with your inner balance artist this way.
