Hell, Michigan -- The 'polar vortex' is on its way out, but it left behind mountains of snow in Hell, Michigan.

The official temperature, a mere -4 degrees. But Jim Hilliard, who's lived here 20 years and says it's never been this cold in Hell with temps that feel like 30 below.

This is a small town, only about 600, so neighbors take care of neighbors.

The snow here is deep -- really deep -- and Hilliard was worried about his neighbor up the hill.

"The neighbor was kind of stuck up there," he said. "She called a snow plow last night and the snow plow got stuck."

Think that's bad?

Hilliard said when they called the tow truck to get the plow out, the tow truck also got stuck.

At one point, Hilliard tunneled a pathway to get to his chickens to check on them and, you guessed it, the job was, "cold as hell," he laughed.

He got to the chickens, but the eggs were frozen. Yep, frozen eggs on delivery.

You know what that means. Go get those expensive boots. Go ahead and plan that wedding with your boyfriend who just won't commit. Invite your crazy in-laws who act like outlaws to dinner.

It's okay!

Hell, Michigan just froze over.
