54 Years in North NJ here. Possibly the coldest winter I have seen.

We are hunkered down in our "Valley Forge" Cabin.

Good luck Cooby & PA

36" inches of snow in Erie PA & Fmanland.

Be Safe.

I don't mind it, too terribly. I still ran outside three days this week. It's been a bigger bummer for my kids as they've been home all week on break, with my two year old niece whom my wife is watching for the week, but not able to play outside in the snow due to extreme temps.
POW! You've been Fmanned!

I have a poem to the weather on my FB page.
Don't know how to insert the image here.

Considering our house is old and drafty, methinks this weather is not going to help us sell it.
I believe that someday I will punch that arrogant foreman at the plant square on his fat nose; that I will get in the last word with my wife; that I will win the Irish sweepstakes; that the Mets will start a winning streak.

Already have to change my outdoor kitties' water every couple of hours. Sucks, and when I go back to work it'll be worse.

Holy hell it's cold

Aha, here's the one I started.

Anyway, my two outdoor kitties have little heated houses (pads that heat when they lie down on them) My little girl Midnight uses hers all the time and I keep putting more and more stuff over it. The trick is of course to not make it scary for her. So today I put an old sheet (I think sheets are the most effective, even more than blankets on a cold night) and an old Garfield sleeping bag I found when I was cleaning out my closet over her house.
I also have sent for reflective blankets and a plug in water dish.

Pierce I don't know where he sleeps. I wish I did :( He has a little heated house here too if he wants it.

If you are wondering why I don't bring them in it's because I have six indoor cats and I honestly think these two are too wild, even for a couple of nights in a spare room.

I guess I don't either, too terribly lol. I'm in the woods with the dog at least
one hour every day and you do get used to it after a while. The wind was
brutal the last couple of days, goes right through you. Today in the sun, no
wind, 20° feels almost balmy.

We didn't get the snow that a bunch of youse got.

The pups wanted nothing to do with being outside the last couple of days. They would just do their business and go right back in. This morning, it was a balmy 9 outside, but no wind, so I was able to at least take them through the woods behind my house...

Wimps.

My first winter in Schenectady featured a week of temperatures of -20.

It was only -1 today. Positively balmy.

I mistakenly left a case of seltzer in the car. Pluses are that exploded black cherry seltzer ice chips is pleasant smelling. Of course, we're trading in this lease on Monday..

It's alright though, I made up for it by spilling a salted caramel mocha in the trunk, which dripped under the wheel well, and has presumably now frozen.

With each passing year I dislike the cold and winter more. I dream of moving to a warm, sunny beach in a few years when I retire. We'll see how that works out in the next few years.

That trip we'll be taking to the Bahamas in less than a week is looking better and better.

Don't worry, the storm is only expected to become a [squints at notes] "bomb cyclone."

In case you were thinking of going someplace warm, today's forecast for Juneau, Alaska is 41 degrees and rain.

When Arctic air heads south, warm air from somewhere heads north to take its place. And whose weather is more unusual for early January?

That's actually not all that out of whack for Juneau which is closer to a somewhat colder version of Seattle than it is to the cold in Fairbanks or most of the rest of mainland Alaska.
Some of Seattle's winter rains turn into Juneau snow, but it's basically the same sort of coastal overcast (only 80-some days of sun/year) as the rest of the Pacific northwest.
