    This is just too early for such a brutal winter.:cry: Minus 15 F this morning at 7 AM. How about our neighbors to the north?

    -15 here too. But it is going to get up to a whopping 8 degrees so it can snow out.

    Man, have I got to get out of this state.

    40 in the DC area.

    The other day we were at 70!!

    I like this area for weather since our winters are usually light but I'd love NO snow like in the south.

    Everywhere has it's drawbacks tho' (earthquakes - west, hurricanes - Florida, Alabama, Louisiana, north - lots of snow and cold, Midwest - tornados), so here it's decent.

    The worst I've seen here is the 6 or so feet we got some years back and 2 seasons we got weird ice storms. We never go below 0.

    Other than that, we can get 100 degree summers so it's a mix.

    Do they make a winter version of those cheese hats?

    Is it going to be that cold for the playoff game,or are you way north of Green Bay?

    We are actually 90 miles south of Green Bay, but the forecast for the Saturday game is 31 degrees, with a chance of snow. 3:30 PM game so temps might drop after it gets dark, but we are a week away and these bozo forecasters can't even predict tomorrow's weather!

    Pack +2.5.

    While here in Winnipeg, Manitoba (straight north of North Dacota) we're hitting -40 degrees this last week celcius which is the same temperature in farenheit. With the wind chill it's even colder. We plug in our car to a block heater that keeps the oil in our cars from freezong solid

    Teed it up yesterday afternoon in shorts and short sleeves, of course. ;)

    Think I'll catch a long beach walk this afternoon before the Ducks' game!

    Thinking of you, Joe!!!:beer:

    Forecast high of 67 today. We have been in the high 60s inland and 70s at the coast for the last week or so. About 10 degrees above normal. Really hard to take :wink2:
