    I *did not* sign up for this, myself. Even in Western Washington, it's never gone below 12° F. where I've lived, although, much more snow, and the occasional freezing rain.

    Check out the weather in Hell, Michigan, see their website. "gotohellmi.com. They show the temp on their home page There's proof that hell really does freeze over. Careful telling somebody you'll do something when hell freezes over because it really does , then you'll have to do it.

    I do feel for the South people. they are not acclimated and not built for the extreme cold.
    You guys have much worse weather than I do.
    19F now and was a little cloudy and so far this season probably got around a total of 12 /14 " in our world that's nothing, might go up to low to mid 20's tomorrow and
    may get a few inches over the week end NBD to us.

    If you want to talk cold, I was stationed at Fairbanks Alaska back in the 70's as a weather equipment repairman. On two occasions, I saw temps of -78˚, the lowest our machines could record. Coulda been -100˚ for all I know. Planes doing touch and goes to break up the ice fog. Frozen wheel bearing grease. Every parking spot at the barracks had 4-outlet plugs for engine & interior heaters.
    I volunteered for that assignment, and being from Minnesota, it wasn't too much different for me. But I feel for those poor folks in Texas and the South; they are just not equipped or used to that sh*t.

    Lived a few miles from Hell, Mi. before I moved here to Az. Not much of a town, more of a wide place in the road. Still a nice place to visit. Has a "up north Mi." type vibe to it.
    I feel for those people in Tx. freezing their butts off. Since I moved to Az. if the temperature isn't in the 80's I'm cold.
