Heck, they declared state of emergency in Maine www.maine.gov/tools/whatsnew/index.php?topic=Portal+News&id=1269&v=Article two days ago.
-19 degrees Celsisus last time I checked.

Pipes in our house were all frozen up earlier this morning - neighbor fixed it and I've just returned from a celebratory crap. :p
I need to have my car idle for a good 15 minutes every morning before I leave for work otherwise my freaking hands will stick to the steering wheel.

Anyone else freezing to death? ;)

It's true we don't know what "really" cold is in the UK.
I remember watching some footage from Stateside, a guy threw a glass of water in the air. Before the water started falling it had formed into tiny ice crystals.


*reminds self not to pee outside in very cold weather*

Hehe... I still wear shorts when I go outside for a five minute smoke.

My nutsack is chiming like Santa's sled bells when I go upstairs again, though. Scared a racoon on our porch to death last night. :D

Arse-end of space (admittedly, the area is quite beautiful).

Lake Region, Maine/Oz/Land of the Freedom Fries.. halfway between Lewiston and Portland (a one hour drive in good weather, 3-4 in a blizzard) to be more exact. And - no - I am not a fcking yankee. :p

I went out by the sea today. Got a tan, drank a few ice cold teas.

Another lazy day by the beach.

Cold? What is the meaning of this.....cold? :D

*cowers* I know, I know... and if I come up with something witty I shall change it again.

We have a mountain right in front of our house basically - Mount Washington. They really are not very imaginative with names here... Oxford is 20 minutes away, Denmark and Norway about 15 minutes etc. etc. :D

Oh, btw - here is your mountain (Washington, ja!).

I've got a theory that films with snow in tend to be much better on average than films without.


It's the same with games for me - it's no coincidence that the best tribes, tribes2, Call of Duty, <insertwhatevergameyoueverplayedeverhere> maps all have snow in 'em :)


Or is it just me? :(

There is no such thing as "cold", only inappropriate clothing.

It was -5 here today, which with our rather considerable windchill works out somewhere between -10 and -13.

Yay for the North Atlantic gales! :)

*snuggles up to keep tw0g warm and comfy* :p

Oh... happened earlier when I went to buy some food for the weekend at the local, tiny, overprized (no such thing as fixed prizes for anything here) foodstore - anyway - it's so farking cold that the liquid in their sprinkler system froze and the fire alarm went off.

Resulted in a little panic and the local fire department, sheriff etc. heading there at top speed.
