    Heck, they declared state of emergency in Maine 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*

    No, lucky bastard :(

    Ok maybe -15 is a bit over the top, but a nice -5 would do.

    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.

    Why the land of the freedom fries? why not move south. I wouldn't mind going there on holiday but living? Way too cold :)

    If it was that cold here id just invest in a snowboard as an alternative mode of transport to walking.
