The Coldest Morning in 25 Years

UPDATE II, 9:30am:
Bartlesville has unofficially broken the record for the coldest temperature ever recorded in the State of Oklahoma with -28°F. 
Hat Tip:  Roger Edwards.

And, it is not just Wichita…

Parsons, Kansas is currently -23°F!

This is a photo of the Beaumont, KS wind farm, halfway between Wichita and Parsons. Wichita’s winds are 5mph and Parsons are calm. So, on this morning with very high electrical demand, the turbines can’t turn because wind speeds are generally below the 7mph threshold. Fortunately, Kansas is not dependent on wind power.
