  2. Chiberia? I like that name. Yep it sure is cold this year around the Great Lakes. Look at those icicles - it's like Canada. ;))

  7. Yes, it has been a very cold year all over the US. Living in Bay Area, I can't complain, but I do feel for the rest of the country. Freezing conditions are very harsh, I know from the little we faced in Dallas, TX earlier.

  9. It must be very difficult for the people to survive there in this climate. Most of the people I know are indoors...no work, no school... Hope the temperature becomes normal soon.

  12. Yeah besides Hawaii and parts of Florida, pretty much every US state had some extreme cold. We didn't get snow, but it was so cold you could hardly stand about 10 minutes outside
