Here in northern Virginia, we had 9 inches of snow last weekend (a lot for us). It was all GONE within 3 days due to persistent 60 degree weather. Now, just in time for the weekend, it's going to dip again into freezing temps with a chance of more snow. Sheesh.

Here in Indiana, our campus is literally in the middle of a cornfield. That means one thing: Lots of wind.

Basically, i'm suprised my nose wasn't frozen off when I was walking to class at 8:00 AM this morning. I guess I shouldn't complain, i'm not in canada.

I'm in NoVA, too. All I've got left on my lawn is a mostly melted ball of snow from the snowman we built.

More on the cold... I just went outside to put the goalie equipment in my car and put it in to garage with the block heater and interior car warmer and left Lisa's outside (I have to be up at 8am for hockey on a Saturday morning, ugh!)

Starting my car, starting hers, moving hers to the neighbour's drive, driving mine into the garage, parking hers and plugging mine in... freaking hands are frozen.

How's the work situation for a broadcast/print graphics guy in any of your warm locales?!?

I had to get some gasoline this morning. I took off my gloves to slide the CC in that little slot at the pump in a -35 wind chill. EEEUUUWW! That was cold. I put my gloves back on only to discover that there wasn't any warmth to be had in them.

At my parents we had the "two cars, one AC circuit" problem (plug both cars in and the fuse blows) so we used timers to alternate power between the cars. That worked better than you might think, although the timers froze up occasionally and the fuses blew again

Eventually we just punched more wires through the wall and now can plug 3 cars in simultaneously.

Of course that was also about the time everyone moved out; now there is only one car and my parents don't go out when it's cold anyways...

Man, you guys can have that weather. Today would be great for the boat ... seas are almost summertime flat.
