No, it couldn’t be, here in the deep South. Cabin fever happened when one was confined to inside quarters for days, weeks on end.
So far this winter has been colder for longer than I can remember. Major highways iced up, severe wind chill, and at least one more night of this.
Why is it even an issue? Northerners are used to it, shrug it off every day. Here, the houses aren’t designed for extended periods of sub-freezing weather. If temps go under twenty degrees, pipes could freeze.
Snow removal equipment is non-existent. Businesses and schools are closed. After tomorrow, things will change for the better.
