We are bitterly cold here in the Mitten... but at least we are somewhat used to it. The south has got to be freaked out with the cold and snow! Hope everyone is safe and warm.

It was below freezing for 100 hours straight in OK. It's finally above freezing today and I could not be happier!

Saturday air temp high will be -5, just a guess, but imagine wind chill will be at least -30. We are either brave or dumb here in CNY!

I'd be real interested in hearing how "devastating" this Winter Bomb really was after it's all said and done (from our NE Compliance Brethren). It seems like everything is over-hyped these days.

2 years ago (beginning of February) I was talking to my brother in Maine, and he mentioned they had 2 snowfalls with a total of 60 inches that week. Near the end of the month, I asked him how much of the 60 inches of snow had melted. He was laughing hysterically as he said that the HIGH temperature that month was 17 degrees.

Reacts to the poor taste above, so removed as well.

Pennsylvania
The week of Christmas, Erie, PA received over 5 FEET of snow and they have received a few additional snow storms since then. Cold is one thing, feet of snow is an entirely different ballgame. That is the kind of snow where things start collapsing under the weight of the snow and it becomes difficult to clear the roadways. Thankfully this is about a hundred miles Northwest of me.

Way, way south.
I went to college in Erie for a year and a half, can confirm: it's a snow nightmare with the lake effect snow.

Cape Cod
I am out on Cape Cod. So far (as of 5:30 EST) we haven't had much snow. It tried to change from rain to snow all afternoon, but didn't make it. We're only 60 or so miles from Boston, where they've had more than a foot. Winds have been horrific, but so far (I could regret saying this), we haven't lost power. Temps are supposed to dive to the mid teens or single digits with win chills near zero overnight and through Sunday, so there will be lots of icing up. Then we get a little break next week, with temps topping off in the 30s and 40s through next Saturday.

Cape Cod
Update. Temp at 21 when I started the coffee today. Headed downward toward mid teens as cold is swept in behind the storm, which is now somewhere off the Canadian Maritimes or beyond. We have a half inch of snow and any water or slush that is on the ground is freezing solid. In Boston, car owners are faced with the challenge of digging out vehicles parked on the street without tossing any of the snow into the street or onto the sidewalk. Either is a violation with some stiff fines.

John: My B-I-L lives in Plymouth, his updates to the family are also the concern with the ice.
I'm in Central NY we had a few inches of snow (thank goodness, lake effect has stayed north all week) but the temp is only 2 with -25 wind chill. Almost all the schools are closed because of the cold.

Stay warm everyone!

East KY here, in the middle of a cold front. Been about two weeks since we've had temperatures above freezing. Been 4 or 5 days since the temps have hit 20. The low we've had so far in this stretch (that I know of) is -1. No idea how the wind chill has been reported. But the fun part...my water finally succumbed to the cold. Froze off a couple days ago, and the temps are looking better in the forecast.

It must be the years of living through upper Midwest winters that has conditioned my nose such that my snot doesn't freeze as quickly anymore

here is south louisiana, it is so cold that when MsGilmore puts ice in her coke and leaves it on the counter overnight, there is still ice in it the next morning...brutal!

this morning, I had to wipe nearly a 1/2 inch of fallen pine needles from my windshield so I could see to drive. I hate winter

So, the synopsis... It's cold. Was it as devastating in terms of snow and ice as the forecast presented?
