    Just hit 0 degrees here with a windchill putting it at -20. Will be about -35 with windchill during my first break at work tonight (11pm local time).

    So, considering they are calling this the biggest snowstorm (in terms of size) EVER, what are you expected to get snowfall wise and temperature wise?

    The high tomorrow is -2 btw.

    There's been talk of an ice storm happening near here in Ohio tonight.

    I hate winter. I really do.

    Sounds like up here we're missing the worst of it. Doesn't matter to me. As long as I can keep the car in the garage so that I don't have to scrape the windshield, and we don't have to shovel ($50 extra a month for snow removal and lawn mowing, totally worth it), I don't really care.

    Apparently tonight I have 10 minutes to smoke before I get frostbite on my lips. Oh the sacrifices I make for nicotine.

    From the coldest state in the lower 48:

    C'mon. We've been spoiled with unseasonably warm and dry winters. I remember helping a friend move in December back in the 90's and it was 55 that day What we have now is how winter is supposed to be. We're just not used to it. I drove to work when the temp was -21 just a few weeks ago. I also drove to and played in a concert back in December when we had the 20" blizzard. However I didn't walk 30 miles to school through a blizzard uphill both ways like my parents used to.

    Lucky you. It's about to rain again down here.


    But it'll snow tomorrow, so it's all right. I actually like snow, since it's so rare where I live.

    Not the time to make yellow snow.
    We went grocery shopping Sunday for the week and I'll be staying home all day tomorrow and possibly Wednesday. Working on my RC helicopter, playing Xbox, chatting with you lovely folks, etc.

    Snow has been on and off in NY for the past couple weeks now. If I recall correctly, it hit below zero last week.

    Tomorrow, there's expected to be about an inch of ice.

    It was -2 degrees outside my house today. Fuckin' coldest I've ever seen it in RI. My damn hands look like my pet lizard's because they're so dried out and frost bitten.

    I kind of envy you guys. It reached 80 goddamn degrees here in Houston today. Winter here is kind of half-assed.

    This entire winter has been :crazy:  for everybody in the lower 48. For those in the path of this upcoming storm..bundle up :D 

    Thankfully TN is missing most of this one..64* tomorrow but very windy..up to 40mph gusts.
    I'll happily take that over snow, ice and freezing rains. brrrrrrrrrrr

    I normally don't mind winter. I love snow.

    This ice crap however. Whole different story. Oh and wind. I always hate the wind.

    I have to put up with shitty weather like this, worse than this, every year.

    You think I'd be used to it after 21 years.

    But no.

    I still hate it.

    Thing is, when it's so cold, I wish for the heat of summer, then when summer comes and I get flash-sunburned the instant my unprotected skin is exposed to direct sunlight, I wish for the cold of winter.

    I would agree with ya Raze, snow can be nice stuff..especially if you get to skip work, but that hardly ever happens :( 

    TN has a bad habit of getting ice either before or during the snow, anything to make it more treacherous to drive or get around whether for fun or work. Plus it makes it hard, crunchy snow, not fluffy snow..me likes fluffy. :D

    Totally snowed like a mofo here. Most of it melted, but still.
