The interesting thing about cold weather is if its minus 40 degrees, it doens't matter if you're speaking of celcius or fareneight. Its the only temperature which matches on both scales. Either way its still friggin cold. Dress warm northerners.

Looks like about 8 or 9 in. total last night just here in a real small isolated area, still snowin' and blowin' lightly, it's fun as long as everyone stays safe, its kinda exciting, cause it just don't seem that we get nearly the heavy snows like we did when I was younger, or maybe I was just shorter then, so the snow seemed deeper... ........Peace........joe

-4 F. or -20 Celcius in London, Ontario at the moment.We're near enough to Erie & Huron to get lake effect from 2 sources.

Gotta love the lake effect. We live in a burb just north of Syracuse, so "lake effect" is a more common phrase spoken this time of year than "good morning". Our snowbanks are at about 6' high now, but I too remember us getting alot more snow when I was young than the 130-180" we get annually now. I also thought maybe it's just cause I was shorter all those years ago, but I distinctly remember regularly playing on top of the snowbanks when they were a couple feet higher than the mailbox....and the mailbox is right where it was 30 years ago! Well, stay safe, try to enjoy it....if we're going to have 3" of snow, may as well have 3' and make it interesting!!!

no snow here in Tallahassee, FL but it's getting COLD! was about 26 here last night and is supposed to get down to 17 (maybe a little lower out where I live) on Friday night/Saturday morning. Thats REALLY cold here and I am NOT looking forward to it. Gotta wrap trees, run all spigots and pray for certain plants. Its great, however, for certain plants NEEDING a cold snap and for getting rid of mosquitoes and fleas.
I'll definitely have the fire going (not to mention the heater!) A friend wants to have a hot tub night......may do that too!
Stay warm and safe everyone. This is wicked cold!

Yep, same thing here in northern Vt., in the middle of three straight days of single digit weather & way below zero at night...
Lake Champlain, which borders Vt. & NY & is also close to Lake George doesn't seem to produce too much "lake effect" snow, which has always surprised me, they are both large bodies of water -- however, Moosehead Lake in northern Maine, the largest body of water in one state east of the Mississippi, has been known to have its own snow every so often -- go figure -- no scratch that, stay warm

I'm just north of you, Soul.....Lowville, NY. For folks like you and I, this weather is nothing unusual. The winter thus far reminds me of when I was young. Like you, it seemed we had more snow over the course of an entire winter and literally a week or two in a row of sub zero temperatures. Now it seems everyone gets excited over two or three days of this kind of cold. I love the snow, the more the merrier. However, as I get older (I'm 39), I find I have less tolerance from the really cold weather. Maybe it's good that we don't weeks of it an end any longer. Stay warm....Up here they're forecasting -20 tonight and tomorrow night not counting wind chill. Gotta love winter in the North Country.

-18 on my way to work this morning here in Middle Earth (and that doesn't include wind chill ) Cold enough last night when I left work that my fingers started hurting as soon as I left the building and didn't stop until I'd been home for about 15 minutes (app. 45 minutes later ) When it starts hovering on 0 numbers become a moot point - it's just COLD!!! It was cold enough that schools were cancelled here in town (I don't recall that ever happening when I was in school back in the days of woodburners... ) .

The temperatures here are plunging too. The high temp today is 8 with a wind chill of 15 below. No lakes here, but it sure feels like it. Creek effect.

Holy @*& Chain, don't go sticking your tongue to any flagpoles up there. We are at a balmy 2 right now, but we may get a few inches of lake effect and the kids are hoping the wind picks up to get that windchill into the school-closing territory in the morning.
Stay warm.

Not enough snow here, actually. But, it got down to minus 6 degrees last night. I heard this notion on TV the other day and I agree with it. Unlike other parts of the country, we earn our Spring, and it's true. The next thing you know, 35 degrees feel warm to you at the other end. Acclimation, although nights like last night are literally lethal if you make a mistake. Ice fishing to come yet.

I get such a kick out living in the South....it was about 20 degrees here in Charlotte today, with the sun shining (no wind) and they were hysterically yammering on the news about how it was "dangersously cold" out...meanwhile I'm watching my old stomping grounds, Chicago, shivering through -11 (actual, no wind chill) temps, with a wicked wind chill....even though I pride myself on having survived those brutal conditions (I remember when it was -28 without the windchill, the all-time record, back around '80 or '81) I have absolutely NO DESIRE to EVER move back to that climate.

I could, however, do without the hysterical weathercasts of Eric Thomas of WBTV in Charlotte....I swear this guy gets paid by the word. He talks so fast and furiously that by the time he gets done with the forecast he is hyperventilating. I think he's a closet speed freak.

Lake effect snow in the South means there won't be any milk and bread at the store.

i grew up in the NE area (Philly and outskirts) so had my share of yucky and cold winters (hated them, but played outside with the best of them and loved the snow!).........but having lived in the southeast for over 25 years......anything under 30 degrees is just plain COLD to us down here. We are not bitching, but it's kinda a different cold. so when we freak about 20-something or (like tonight) teens....please bear with us. THIS IS COLD, very COLD for us, and our game plan and prep is a totally different animal that what needs doing up north..........no disrespect at ALL. I am just grateful you all know how to do it!

Hoses running tonight. it's 2:15am and 23 degrees..............WOW! time for a property walk and hose check! It's f@#king COLD outside! warm fiery hugs to everyone!

STAY WARM EVERYONE! i do NOT envy anyone north of me..............stay snuggly and safe!
