Even by Wisconsin standards, we’re talking cold. The National Weather Service Tuesday morning put the mercury at minus-19 at the Langlade County Airport. That was at between 7 and 8 am. Factor in the wind chill, with a breeze blowing from the northwest, and you’re talking the outside feeling like 38 below the morning after Christmas. That bone chiller made for a busy day for area towing services as car and truck batteries gave up the ghost in high numbers.
