this just boggles my mind, lol. It is 18 degrees here right now, wind chill of 10 and I am miserable. I truly can not fathom -54!

I live in Saskatchewan, Canada. It always boggles my mind when you guys talk about snow days. I don't recall the school ever being closed due to cold or snow!

WOW! I don't know how you stand all that snow and cold. It is 32 degrees this morning in Houston and I am whining I have to get out in that cold weather!! Now I feel like a wuss.

But I handle heat pretty well. Maybe it's what your body gets used to.

Lori, that made me think of a friend of mine in college. She came mid-semester to Tuscaloosa from Wisconsin. She brought her car.
In April she started talking about the heat and told her Dad it was pretty hot down there. In May she told her Dad she had to have AC installed, In June she told him she had to have a new car, lol.

We were all surprised that you could even BUY a new car in the 1970's without A/C because certainly no dealer in the south even considered ordering one without it.

Her Dad did not believe the heat until he and her mom came down in August to visit her. He promptly went out and bought her a new car. Her mother refused to go anywhere until night time, lol. My friend still lives in the south and her family will only visit in the winter.

As we say down here, it isn't the heat, it is the humidity, lol. And I am at this very second longing for 100 degree weather - it is currently 24 with a windchill of 16. I am contemplating wearing gloves indoors!

It's not the humidity that makes it feel hotter out than it really is it's the dew point once that gets above 60F it's awful study

It gets just as hot and humid here in Maine the temp can be 95 - 100F and the humidity 100% but if the dew point is below 60F it doesn't feel that bad as long as the AC is running

California girl here all the way. I'm truly sorry for all those having extreme whether conditions. Your all welcome to come visit me this weekend and we'll have a pool party. Very Happy

ok - now you are being just down right mean about it, a pool party...

here my ass is sliding around on black ice and you are talking about a pool party and our poor brothers and sisters up the east coast are way past freezing themselves to death and having to wade through snow drifts just to get the mail and it is full of catalogs with warm weather clothes they can't wear for months anyway so they are wondering why they even bothered....

and then you start talking about going swimming.....I think you should just take it all back as you know you didn't give us enough advance notice to get there....... lol!

Dug out the end of the driveway. Wish these plows would do their job first or even second go-round. Yeah, I should quitmybitchin' since they do plow the roads.

I'm thankful I do not live in New England.

See, I can find a bright side lol!

I guarantee you she'd rather be at my pool party then shoveling snow or excercising. So, stop your whining and get out here tomorrow before I take back my invitation. Naughty, naughty lol!

Jim Cantore of the Weather Channel just tweeted this:

"The Big Prize is eastern STORM potential Tue-Thu time period from Gulf 2 Northeast. Too early for ANY detail but looks like big impact event"

I don't know what in the hell that means but it does NOT sound very good.

WOW, I always thought Boston had more than 14 inches of snow a year.

We got about 6 inches last night in southern Ohio. Our kids made up Monday instead of being off for MLK and after the snow last night, they were off today again. lol

We had snow on the ground in November, and its pretty much stuck around, which is unusual for us.

Our local weather guy is talking about the storm next week too. It doesn't look good and I'm already sorry I played hooky today due to the cold. I should have waited til next week.

My cruise roommate is heading out to sea on Sunday for 14 days on the new Allure of the Seas. Maybe we can all fit in her luggage!!

I have this black fleece hat thing that only my eyes show when I wear it. I originally bought it a couple years ago for skiing. I had it on in the grocery store the other day, and when I was walking to the car, I said to my son, "did I have this on in the store? Why didn't you tell me?" He responded "it's no big deal, you just look Muslim. Now I am wearing the thing 24/7 most of the time just around my neck but still. I even wore it to bed last night!

I am feeling bitter about the cold as well (pun intended). I usually like winter. This one just isn't doing it for me.

Just when the 18 inches from the Dec. blizzard finally started to melt, then we had that storm last week. I hope as we get closer to the storm's arrival, it will not be as bad as some are predicting.

It is very vague since it is still a few days away.

My brother shoveled his snowbanks beside his driveway today to make room for more snow. I don't know where he put the snow. Maybe in his neighbour's yard?

It's - 22 C here this morning and my DH thinks that we should go down to the Rideau canal for a skate. I told him I'd think about it if he springs for hot chocolate and beaver tails when we get there. At least when it's this freakin' cold, it won't be too crowded. Lol

That reminds me of my neighbor across the street. He is a really nice guy but he has serious OCD with his yard and neatness. He told me he thought the leaves in his yards were blowing over from my house! I just laughed about it because his wife told me about his "issue" with their yard. He is really cute too so I cut him a break trying to blame us for his leaves! We live in Swarthmore, for goodness sakes, there are HUGE trees everywhere!
