Winter Sucks!!!!

Not sure about your part of the country, but here in the MidWest, it's nasty cold!!!!!!!
Last night was one of the first times in my life, I was afraid I wasn't going to make it home... The snow was blowing so hard, street signs were bent over.. Crashing through drifting snow doing 15mph with my flashers on was not fun.... I keep my cold gear in the van just in case, looked over at it a few times last night....

If this winter is kicking the crap out of you as well, vent away!!!!!!

The northeast is terrible this year! If it's not snowing it's-45 wind chill. I'm so sick of this crap, ready to stick a knife in mother nature. She's a real tool this year!

Gee guys, it's only January. I admit it's been rather brutal, but it is the middle of winter.


Still sucks though.

Jimbo, it has been brutal here also, may go down to the 50s tonight and the 40s tomorrow. But back in the 70s by Friday so we may survive.

Our oldest son is in South Bend IN and my Family is from Rochester NY, I got out before I knew that there would be all this "global warming".

Hang in there, spring will come.

It was in the 60s here in OK last couple days, but now were back in the arctic air. With this pattern the nrn plains, midwest and northeast are taking the brunt and no end in sight next couple of weeks. We have been so spoiled by several relatively mild winters last several years that we forget how brutal it can really be this time of year. I agree though winter can suck unless you live in the deep south. I hate cold weather. Would rather burn in 100F heat than deal with extreme cold.

It was 60 degrees here yesterday afternoon and below zero wind chill last night. That's just wrong.

Hey Guy's,
I'm on the northern Illinois side of the cheese curtain (Wisconsin), it is going to be -24 here tonight actual temp, plus a 12-15 mph northwest wind. I was out in the barn earlier, the sheep were bartering their wool for more hay! This winter has been brutal!. I own a livestock farm and my free time (build time) has been consumed by making sure the critters have open water and hay. This SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!
