    Lol! Thanks. Where I live got hit with roughly 18 inches of snow and right now the wind gusts in Boston are hitting 30+ mph. The wind chill is ridiculous, some places getting as low as -40*F.

    Thanks G-man, much obliged. First time I had frost on the inside of my windshield! I hear you guys are getting a lot of storms so keep your rubbers handy.

    Thanks for thinking of us Gary. We may be coming out of it. 4 degrees Fahrenheit right now in Chicago :lol:
    Best thing I ever did was buy some army surplus Mickey boots. I was out in it for a couple of hours and the feet were still warm.

    I would give you the finger but I'm afraid it would freeze and break off!!

    5 deg was the high with a windchill of -4 here in Jersey.

    Oh, yesterday morning it was 60 degrees. What a difference a day makes!

    The first storm(12/6) gave us 1/4in (6.4mm) of ice the 8in (20.3cm) of snow topped with another 1/4 of ice. Nothing moved here for 5 days. The second storm 3 days ago only brushed us with anothe 1/4in of ice and an inch (2.5cm) of snow which was quickly compacted by traffic and turned into ice when the artic blast hit that night. Night time temp here was -19F actual air temp (-28.3C) with wind chill we were in the -40F range. Last night was -7F (-21.6) and daytime temp got to 35F (1.7C) with sun. Schools and most everything else were closed. Tomorrow starting about 5PM or so another ice storm is predicted. And this is the SOUTH for cripes sake. Thought I left this crepe with Glenn back in Ill-Noise

    I was in Michigan last week when we were hit by that first big storm. Both pics are the same view out the window. In the first you can't even see the lake for the snow fall. The second is the frozen lake when it was all over. We came back to Chicago just in time, the last storm shut down the highways around the southern end of Lake Michigan for a couple of days.

    Yeah, this winter has been serious hell...

    All this sunshine (broken by occasional clouds) and brutal daytime temps of 67°F (19°C) then plunging to an arctic 36°F (2°C) at night...

    Thank God for global warming or else we'd all be screwed! :lol:

    Thanks for the wishes everyone. Here in East Central Wisconsin, we did not get the snow, but plenty of cold and wind. Has not been above 0F since Sunday.
    Yesterday, Monday, at 11AM, the weather was reporting -18F with 30MPH winds giving a -51F wind chill.
    After tonight's -15F, things should start warming up some.
