    Is anyone else getting this crazy cold? It's currently -12 and with the wind chill added in it feels like -32. I'm not looking forward to the 4 block walk to the office after the train drops me off downtown.

    18 here. But we're expecting 12 inches of snow tonight and into tomorrow. Can't wait.

    It snowed on and off here yesterday, but we only got maybe 3 inches. They're saying the high today might not reach reach 0.

    I’m fat so the cold doesn’t bother me too much. I am just grateful the roads are clear around here. Nothing like an impromptu bumper cars race on your way to work because someone in an Excursion with studs thinks that doing 45 through down on a sheet of ice is doable.

    See you can sequester the old, but you have no such luck with mother nature. I look at Florida like a game reserve for old people. There are little pockets of land dedicated to the old much like a reservation for native americans. They mill around amongst themselves and generally leave others alone. Its a pretty well thought out plan in my opinion.

    Of course the one day that the train is late is the day that walking to the train from work is -16 with the wind chill. Here I walk 10 minutes to the train and then have to wait another 10 minutes for the train. Fuck its cold!

    Yeah I'm out here in colorado spring so we have the same thing as you guys up there. I can deal with the negative temp but the windchill that's killing me. I walked to work this morning as I do every day and by the time I got to work my hands and ears were damn near frozen, and I only walk for about 5 minutes that's it

    Not cold but the half inch of ice covering everything and an other 1/4 to 1/2in more tonight is not to enjoyable.
