The cold that is gripping us at the Jersey Shore is some of the coldest weather, we've experienced in years, and it's even worse in other parts of the country. In Chicago, it's too cold for a polar bear, literally.

At Chicago's Lincoln Park Zoo, they have one polar bear named Anana and according to a story at, Anana will be spending the duration of this cold spell indoors. Yep, this polar votex is even too cold for a polar bear!

The zoo spokeswoman say that a polar bear in the Arctic would have an extra layer of blubber but since Anana lives in the city, she doesn't need, or have, that extra layer, so it's inside for Anana until it warms up to a temperature more suited to a city polar bear.

The temperature in Chicago was 7 below zero this morning.
