    Hell, they closed school till Wednesday by us on Sunday. Some cities cancelled garbage collection because the streets were so bad. They just opened the expressways this afternoon. They were closed due to snow and ice for at least 24 hours.

    Yep...that's us LOL But DC Metro area i too far north to be the south, but too far south to be north ;) So we will have 3 degrees one day, 50 degrees the next. Which sucks cuz we'll get an inch of snow and ice, but it melts the next day. Or it will be 33 degrees and raining...now THAT'S a "we could have snow if it was just" a little bit colder phrase LOL

    My friends wife is from Anchorage. She like to froze to death, her first winter in the south. And that winter we only got down to the 20's.

    I wanna go to Alaska, but not for the warmer weather.:) I wanna chase a Grizzly with archery equipment.

    northern ontario, canada. It's been averaging -30 celcius since middle of november. At the present moment [11.47 pm jan 6] its -30, wind chill puts it down to -52 . Thats -20 and - 58 for you guys down below. try working an outside job in that. The polar vortex that the weather channels are all yapping about. Well I'm right in the middle.
