Bill, are you under the blob somewhere?

This is the coldest winter I've experienced in a while. We got a big snow last year towards the end of the season, but so far we're getting significant storms regularly.

(I'm in Northern NJ)

P. S. I was visiting relatives in Milwaukee, WI, last week. COLD!!! Wind chills were well into the negatives. It did "warm up" to about 5 degrees F, at one point...

Not a flake here yet though.

Well...considering that I live on the northern tip of of Manhattan and work at the southern tip, my commute is an underground train ride all the way (IND 8-th Ave. line) down the length of the island...it's pretty easy.

I walk two blocks up hill to get to the train from home and two and a-half blocks from the train to my job.

So...the snow is no excuse for me not showing up at work. DARNN!! [Linked Image] [Linked Image]

I love the snow, could do without temps below 25. I have 4 wheel drive, but that has not stopped any of those terrible drivers from crashing into me [Linked Image]
I am sick, because I love to shovel snow, my neighbors love it though!

"I walk two blocks up hill to get to the train from home and two and a-half blocks from the train to my job."

Is that uphill both ways?

The wind blew all nite so we have some real nice drifts out in the country.

Closest thing we've had to a real blizzard in quite a few years.

Ryan,
I remember those long cold winters. Week after week of frozen fog/smog in the valley. No sunshine. Hoarfrost on all the buildings and tree limbs. Soooooo depressing. Glad I moved East. So what if we're expecting 16 inches tomorrow.

Earl: Your recollection of Salt Lake/Draper city is a very good one.

Beyond not having temperatures above freezing, the fog/smog has been worse this year than anyone I know can remember it. I took pictures from Draper (remember Corner Canyon?) at about 5000', and looking down you couldn't tell if was clouds or ocean or what...it snowed the other the other day to warm things up, and we literally saw the sun for the first time in over a month [Linked Image]

Its been a bad one here.
