That looks pretty dang frosty to me!!

We got a drizzle last night, and then it got cold so the car was covered in ice when I left for work at 5:30-ish this morning.

I had to whack the door to get it to open.. I don't now how you people where it is really cold do this..

I even had to dig out my ice scraper.. and my wipers were stuck until the defroster ran a bit..

really weird.. as I was wearing shorts 2 days ago...

We have had nothing!!!!

I am honestly a little upset about it. I want some snow! We have had weather in the 0 degree range but nothing else.

How cold do I feel? Well, like they say, a picture is worth 1000 words

In case you cannot tell, I had to dig my nuts out of the snow --;)
I left them out for the squirrels but they must have been distracted by a human.

Some more ice cold pictures for now.

You can see it is still coming down pretty good. This might turn out fun. Most everything is closed, my wife's office took a snow day.

I would say we got about 6". It died off so we went out to the country trying to find a non traveled road. Here is my contribution to this thread :D

About 1 mile west of town we scared up a huge number of mallards and snow geese

It's a one lane bridge. I understand it's over 100 years old,

Awesome shots Jon. I did the same thing yesterday - out driving/trying to get stuck. Couldn't do it, but had a BLAST. And some dude in the parking lot where that photo was taken told me my rig was awesome. Haha.

That snow you're enjoying is coming our way for tomorrow morning!

Temperature trivia:

Did you know at what temperature are Celsius and Fahrenheit the same?

The answer is -40.

From last nights storm, about 14 inches:

This went from fun to "disaster" really quick. The ice has TRASHED eastern PA. Trees, wires, limbs down everywhere, roads closed, etc. Upwards of a half million without power, 80-90% of entire counties, and our power guys are saying it's possible that there will be no power until the weekend.
