    Cold, cold, cold! So cold, when I started the car, the LCD display showing which vents, defrost, etc. in use, it barely worked. At first I thought it was broken. Oh, and according to Accuweather, more snow on the way this weekend.
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    I'm about 22 miles West of Cleveland, Ohio. Right now (about 12:40 p.m.) it's 9 degrees F (about -12.7 C), but has stopped snowing. Where I live, we accumulated about a foot and a half of snow in the past 48 hours; I like snow. The "snow belt" is to the East of Cleveland, and they get far more snow than we do.

    Just a typical winter for us. It will probably all melt in a week or two, then happen again. We also get the most snow in February, and it looks like this is going to be a good year for snow

    Even though this is normal, it seems the area is populated with clones of Chicken Little. Every year they panic, even the years we get very little snow. People born and raised here often act like they've never seen snow before. I set them up by kindly telling them they will get used to it after they've lived here a couple years. When they say they've lived here all their lives I sarcastically ask why, then, are they panicking.

    At Christmastime I noted to my Dad at how northerners move south, but had never heard of it happening in reverse. I guess it happens, but I've never heard of it. It's COLD up there. I don't see how you all can take it. But I guess once it gets below about 20, you can't tell any real difference.

    And usually drive like it as well. I love how the media blames "the storm" for auto accidents and sometimes deaths.

    You never heard of the Great Migration? Lots of people move north, but not for the weather.

    Lots of wind and rain with flooding here. A repeat performance of what we had last week.

    My local railway station looked like a canal with water instead of tracks and a tunnel had water up to about 18" from the top.

    Railway on the right, small stream in the middle, playing field on the left: http://onthewight.com/wp-content/201...To-Tippers.jpg

    Tunnel flooded (at its peak, it was higher than this): http://www.iwcp.co.uk/files/images/n...411&height=219
