    meteorologists across the nation have pointed to a "polar vortex" as one of the many systems responsible for what is set to be a rare and extreme-weather...on Sunday this system is set to push cold arctic air down to the U.S., sweeping across the northern parts of the country, where Americans are still recovering from this week’s winter storms #weatherchannel

    seriously??? it's been below zero and there's already a foot of snow here :gotcha
    am So Over Winter already *sigh*

    Stay Warm Everyone!

    wish we would get snow too, but so far just about 1/2" to a 1" the most. But you stay warm and safe Deborah.

    We have piles and piles. Yesterday it snowed with no wind at all (which is rare) and the snow piled up so pretty on every tiny tree branch and twig. It was so pretty this morning! Now it's snowing again and is supposed to dump 8-14" more inches. I don't even care. I love snow! I have a feeling my kids aren't going back to school tomorrow after all though. :)

    Snowing all morning with no end in sight. Praying DH makes it home safely from work this evening!

    Can you see how deep it is already, and this was just at noon?!

    We aren't getting snow but we are getting the cold temps. School was called off for tomorrow as with the windchill it's going to be around -40.

    we were getting super cold (-30C) til yesterday. Today it's +2C, go figure. And it's snowing nice fluffy flakes. Have 2 inches so far, more to come. They're calling for a snow day tomorrow, but I generally take the kids to school anyway... it just means the buses aren't running.

    We've had about 5-6 inches of snow. School has already been cancelled for tomorrow due to the extreme cold.

    We are under about 8 inches of snow (from last week and this) total and it's still snowing. Our high tomorrow is -14F, no school.

    I'm from ND so I know all about -60 windchills and tons of snow. I now live in WA state and today was Sunny and in the 40's. We actually are too dry - desperate for some rain or snow here. Many of the farmers are worried (very very worried) as we've had little to no moisture yet this winter. Stay warm and safe friends and here's praying we get some moisture here soon!

    HOLY SMOKES at the cold and snow! We are going to be mid 20's tonight and teens by tomorrow night, which is a record low for us this time of year but seems downright balmy compared to y'all.

    I blame Global Warming *snort* :giggle

    Sorry, couldn't resist.

    Anyway, you guys stay warm and safe!

    We've got lots of snow and negative temps here in NH too. Actually it was 30 today and it felt like spring. Freezing temps are coming back tonight though.
