How cold is it in Boston? you ask. It's so cold the lawyers have their hands in their own pockets...the flashers on Boston Common are handing out pictures of themselves.

Gene and Lola - You guys should get paid for this stuff....hysterically funny!!! By the way, it's 5:03 in Ft Lauderdale right now and a balmy 70 degrees. I'm from Ohio originally and can I just say....I've never missed that horrible weather. Sorry!

It is 32F in chicago right now positively balmy compared to our recent weather, I even cracked my office window and went for a walk during lunch. Hopefully we are sending some of that 'warmer' air out east. Anyway, about the cold, I understand, having lived in the upper midwest most my life.

Well, if our weather in South Dakota and Minnesota is a predictor of what you folks in Ohio and the East Coast will have tomorrow, I'd suggest stocking up on food, movies and wine. We cancelled our trip to Omaha this morning, due to the 1/4 inch of ice. This afternoon, it has been snowing steadily and I would say we have about 4-5 inches at this point. Yes, they say that there is another storm following this one - late Sunday or early Monday.

MicheleNYC-

According to the website accuweather.com, the storm tonight won't drop much (so they say). But the one expected on Sunday has the potential for quite a bit of snow. So far the predictions for Western NJ (where I live) are up to a foot of snow. I swear I'll never complain about muggy weather in August again. If I do, then I have a use for all that duct tape. You can tape my mouth shut.

Thanks for the info (and the laugh), Jersey. I'll make sure to stock up on munchies and lots of wine.

60 degrees and brilliant sunshine in Oregon. Big fluffy clouds - spring is almost here. Of course California is getting all our rain. Noticed some other flowers poking their heads up this morning. Not a flake of snow this year - wish it could be spread around a bit, our ski slopes are closed or hurting.

Here in Los Angeles, the rain is gone! And it is now in the mid sixties and sunny again, we just can't take weather here, especially rain. We take it as an insult that we have to think about getting wet.

Here is a fun project to try if your temp. falls below 10 degrees and you have a bottle of soap bubbles. The bubbles you blow will turn to ice crystals. When they bump into something they will break just like glass. Pretty cool, pardon the pun.

bmw732002 & michelleNYC

Stay warm people, and have a glass of wine for me. (and my sister mocked me for buying a down comforter in NJ). I live in Hunterdon county where old beautiful homes are plenty. But they aren't very energy efficent. One of our cats has taken up permanent residence under the covers of my daughters bed. I'm beginning to think anywhere the temperature is over 40 degrees would be a heat wave.

Hey SaraLM-I always wanted to visit Oregon. Sounds darn near like paradise now.

OK,
It's zero F just south of Franconia Notch right now....going to 15 below tonite. The drains are frozen, so I guess I'll have to go out to eat tonite 8^).

Why put up with this? Just like the line in Field of Dreams "...look up into a sky so blue it makes your eyes hurt."

FL may be "God's waiting room", as bmw732002 says, but God apparently has a more creative decorator than New England does. You can have your landscape in any color you like, as long as it's white.

That's OK, bmw, I wouldn't trade with you to live in New Jersey either. And those who call Florida "God's Waiting Room" didn't walk down Naples' Fifth Avenue at 10 PM as I did tonight. The temperature was still near 70, and the sidewalks were filled with the overflow from the bars and restaurants -- average age maybe 30 or so, except at the outdoor patios of Coffe Co. and Starbucks, filled with the under 21 crowd who aren't allowed in the bars.

I am so tired of EVERY weekend here for the last 4 being ruined by SNOW --

This weekend we are expecting an ICE storm to hit and then turn to up to 12 inches of snow!!

And this is VIRGINIA!!!

Fla is looking better and better every day!!!

Time for the West Coast to chime in! Cloudy and overcast in the south SF Bay Area today with a high in the low 60s. We're supposedly going to be hit by a big storm tomorrow afternoon and night. Maybe it'll probably be cool enough to light a fire in the fireplace.

Spring has sprung around here with lots of flowering fruit trees. They're beautiful.

Here in Honolulu it is STORMING. Rain, the island is covered with thick black clouds, high wind, and it's cold...somewhere around mid 60s I think. This morning's news reported it is worse on Maui! Winter is truly here.
