It’s about to get really, really freakin’ cold. New York’s Office of Emergency Management has issued a “life-threatening” weather advisory for Thursday night through Saturday night, according to Gothamist. In addition to one to two inches of snow Thursday night, we can also expect “dangerously frigid temperatures and life-threatening wind chill” to descend upon our fine metropolis Friday and Saturday. Temps will reach the low teens, and the wind chill will make it feel like -5 to -10 degrees. As always: Never leave your apartment.
