    Please stay safe and warm. Coldest weather since the polar vortex in (2014?) across North America. Heard -30/-40 wind chills in the Plains and possibly more snow on the way for Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and other Great Lakes States.

    We will thaw the Canadians out in a few months.

    Holy heck, we were just in NYC [for Christmas], and got some of the tail end of the cold weather (some wind chills into 15-18 degree, a couple of short dips into single digits) and even being *very* prepared, there were moments I might as well have been wearing shorts and a T-shirt. That level of cold just amazes me.

    Chilly here, but not entirely unseasonable. It's 37ºF here, which is cooler than usual this time of year but certainly not unheard of.

    Another balmy day in Minnesota :).

    On Mt Washington in my state of NH, it was -34 Deg F with a -89 Deg F windchill.

    Here's a video of boiling water changing to instant snow on Mt Washington.

    Our sun has hit a 11 year period of minimal sunspots so things will get cooler for awhile (expect a cold winter).

    About time we have snow like the old days. When I was a kid, I had to walk 5 miles to school in 2 feet of snow, barefoot, uphills, both ways.

    Wait, did I read that correctly, minus 84 degrees?!?!?!?!??! Holy smokes that is freaking cold! I was thinking our 43 degrees we reached at night was cold! That takes it to a whole new level!

    You misread, -89. ;)

    Keep in mind that is on a mountain, though.

    You would die if you were exposed to it lol. Instant frostbite to uncovered areas.

    One of the places called out on the Today show when talking about cold weather is about an hour from me - Saranac Lake, NY. Officially, the Albany area set a record low high (coldest high temp recorded on a particular day) of 8 F yesterday, or maybe it was Wed? I don't think we even hit double digits yesterday.

    Yes but then you have to deal with the heat and humidity, and the hurricanes and what not. The only perfect weather is like San Diego or Hawaii.
