Well, I'm in Buffalo in the heart of the "once in a decade" winter storm and now have a blizzard warning. Taking the streets to my house a couple times I had to stop because all I could see literally was white. Haven't heard Blizzard warning in a long time. Just hope I don't lose power. It's about 14 degrees now with single digit temperatures in the next few days. I have no idea why I keep living here.

For all the reasons you just said, it sounds amazing.

It sounds like it would be amazing for about 5 minutes, and then you realise you are literally house bound till it all blows over, good luck if the power goes or you need more food etc. Hope your house survives the Blizzard with no outages!

In Indiana, we have 11.5 inches of snow on the ground now and they are calling for another 3 or more inches on Thursday night.  Our high temperature yesterday was -12 with a wind chill of -45.   So I feel for the OP.  I'm definitely over winter!!!

In reality I'm not that bad, I just went out and bought some decent hiking boots just for my walk to work incase the weather gets much worse.

I've seen some storms where I practically couldn't see out the windshield.  Not the best time to be driving.

 

That was fun.  Heh.

 

It's -15 here atm and we're enjoying ourselves.  I'm staying up most of the night to keep the furnace filled.

 

5AM though so I'll see you fine people some other time.

I'm in the next big city, ROC, and it is cold as hell. I grew up in Mass, so I'm used to the cold/snow, but this is one of the coldest days I have ever experienced. It is currently -3 degrees F, and it feels a lot colder with windchill. That wind is just horrible. It also snowed here (about 2-3 inches). The wind is so strong, all the snow was blown off the cars, so that's a plus.

Here we are complaining about the cold and in Canada they are probably running around in shorts saying that it might be cold enough to put shoes on rather than sandals :p
