    Agreed. It's way too cold to even come close to snowing. Frost in my hair this morning from my breath. Will have to wear a touque in the hot tub tonight!

    And really, when they tell us it will be a HIGH of -22 you know we are done for.

    But the canal is fully open!

    In Denver we had a couple of weeks where it didn't get above freezing. Today though...almost 70. Should be nice.

    No thanks.

    The forecast here calls for 1/4" of freezing rain on Friday. I think I'll pass on Homer not being able to leave home to work at the plant!

    Ouch, that is cold. We were just -19 Celsius in Chicago, but back up to a balmy -4 and low of -14 C today, I can live with that.

    I'm happy I took my daughter skating yesterday evening. Kind of dreading if she asks to go again tonight...

    Actually, when its this cold, I find that its no good to ski. The extreme cold kills all the glide.

    I had no idea what you meant with Beaver Tails. But Google educated me.

    Really, how can you go wrong. Freshly fried dough, covered in toppings like chocolate, cinnamon or maple (the best).

    Of course, the problem is you always get the topping all over your gloves, jacket, scarf, hat, skates....

    Ooooooh, that does sound good. I've always been a fan of summertime street-fair zeppoli and funnel cakes, but beaver tails look and sound even better because of all that messy goo.

    Here, in the wintertime, most vendors are selling hot dogs boiled in dirty water, or maybe a lukewarm "hot" pretzel. If you're very, very lucky, though, you might find a vendor selling roasted nuts that smell as good as they taste. Mmmmmm.

    It's a balmy 14 degrees Fahrenheit here (that's -10 Celsius for everyone else in the world), with a low of only 10 degrees Fahrenheit (-12 Celsius). It's practically shorts weather!

    I actually did see a dumba$$ running errands in shorts this weekend. I seriously wanted to ****-slap him.

    When I took my daughter to karate last night it was 16F. I saw a woman (yes, woman- not a 13 year old girl) come out of the grocery store in pajama pants and a sweat jacket with sparkly wings on the back. :shock:

    I do not know what it is, but I really hate those people as well.
