Freeze Warning for Benton, Franklin and Surrounding Counties
And just like that, it's going to start feeling like Fall.
Have you ever heard the phrase, "Cold enough to freeze the balls on a brass monkey?" My understanding is that it's not at all what you think. On old war ships, the metal shelf that held the cannon balls was called a monkey. If the weather got too cold, sailors were ordered to take the cannon balls off of the monkey shelf in case they went into battle. It's kind of hard to defend your ship if your cannon balls are frozen on the brass monkey!
When it comes to sayings like, "It's colder than a witch's ________", or "Colder than a well digger's _________", well, I can't help you there...it just is what it is LOL.
Here are a few that are better for all ages:
**It's colder than a mother-in-law's kiss
**It's colder than a brass toilet seat on the shady side of an iceberg
**It's colder than a grave diggers shovel
**It's colder than a room full of ex-wives
**It's so cold that I chipped a tooth on my soup
