but not as gold as New England the last few weeks

Not even close to gold  :-* here.  F***ing freezing is more like it.  Single digits (F) for a high with wind chills off about -20.  Your car doesn't want to start in the morning, your snot and boogers freeze up instantly (check out pics of Jeff Fisher from last weeks Pats-Titans game to get a glimpse of what its like).  I can deal with cold weather but this is ridiculous.  It's supposed to warm up by Saturday with highs in the low 30s.

-12 C would be nice.  I would stop wearing a jacket it would be so warm :P  We'll realistically hit around -15 in spite of what they indicate.  Snowing.  Snowed yesterday (about 3 inches).  Snowed three days ago, about 4 inches.  Snow in the forecast for tomorrow, about 3 more inches.  Supposed to be bloody warm though, around -5C (mid 20s F).  Cold again for the weekend though.  Great weather.

I'll have to snag a pic of my driveway to show you guys the snow.  Compared to the dumps you New Englanders get, it's probably nothing but this sh1t isn't going away for another 2-3 months.  It just doesn't melt here.

We had like 26" in November and December if I remember the news the other night, since mid December though most of it has melted and it hasn't snowed at all...sounds like it is staying north

I used to go down to Minneapolis quite a bit for T'wolves games and I don't think I was ever there when there was snow on the ground.  At least not large amounts.  It is pretty wild though, somewhere along I-94 you hit the point where it doesn't go away.  I think they call that Fargo :P

We get snow and it sits.  And sits.  And sits.  The record for continuous snow on the ground is from some time in October until May.  Right around 200 straight days.

Brrrrrrrr!  It's cold!  It's about 11 degrees F here, and we got around 6-8 inches of snow overnight.  It's supposed to go down to -25 with the wind chill tonight.  This stinks and I don't like it!  Why don't I move to California?

being in jersey myself, i said the same thing this morning, as i was walking in the 8 inches of snow. but then i thought about it, and said to myself, it's better to have to deal with the possibility of snow for like 5 months out of the year than to deal with the possibility of an earthquake 12 months out of the year, no?  earthquakes are bad... i'm sure i'd get real tired of setting up all my figures every time another one hit ;D

I think I'm the only one is America(Canada and Mexico included)that wants it to get cold.I want some friken snow!!!!We're 0-2 in school closings this year,it wouldn't be right if me and my friends didn't kill each other with snowballs,or get to gloat over how correct I was about the severity of the winter weather(that part right there has made my credibility go down 10%  :-[)

We got well over 8 inches of snow last night, driving home from work was an absolute nightmare.  Today, it's just extremely COLD!!

School was canceled for me today, due to the extreme cold.

Hell yeah 4 day weekend.

Damn.  Kids are wusses today ;)

What, a whopping -40 windchill?  Big whoop, we hit -46 a week or two ago and no cancellations at all but for the outdoor hockey games.  Still people out skating.  

Why I remember walking to school in -80 K with howling winds, 8 foot snowdrifts and uphill.  Both ways. :-*

-80 K ???

Dang THAT's cold.  You're made up of some pretty resilient molecules Morgbug...  I usually stop moving all together at 0 Kelvin.
