    It is a balmy 2.8 °F with "Light Snow Freezing Fog" and a windchill of -16 °F.
    A clip of the forecast for my area:

    "In addition to the snow... strong west to northwest winds of 25 to
    35 mph with gusts to near 50 mph along the Lake Shore will continue
    into Sunday night. This will create blowing and drifting snow as
    well as dangerous wind chills ranging from 10 below zero closer to
    the lake to as low as 25 below zero well inland."

    And it looks like the winds are starting to shift enough to fire up the lake effect snow. SO glad I do not need to go anywhere this afternoon.

    Hiya, I'm just outside Plymouth...

    The wind this morning was gusting over 40mph making snowblowing almost impossible,..guessin' wind chill -35F easily.

    My goggles iced over almost instantly...

    Usually winter in SoCal means I have to wear a long sleeve T-shirt in the evenings; but we've been having a real cold snap lately: 54 deg. F and sunny at 10 AM, night time lows in the 40's.

    Brrr....

    Thank god only -13F, I just hate when temperature drops to -40C/F or so, my cars suspension gets quite stiff below -20F.(26y old MB W123)

    I am wondering, how do you guys go without electricity on cold days like this? How do you keep your houses warm? Don't you need electricity to run the furnace?

    The coldest I seen was -27F on a visit to Alberta Canada long ago.

    The coldest temperature I have ever experienced - ever - was about +30F.

    Haven't even seen a frost since the late 1970s.

    When people say "it's freezing" around here, it is NEVER meant literally.

    But our winter is the nicest time of year.

    We were having highs in the single digits (Farenheit) for a while. I rode my bike to work & back Friday (YouTube vid), and I think it was 10°F at most. On the way home, I believe it was about 4°F and falling. Cold enough!

    One guy rolled down his window to yell "NUTJOB!" at me. Well, if the shoe fits...

    Hey, they canceled the "Winter Storm Warning" for my area. Got upgraded to a "Blizzard Warning"!
    It has warmed up a bit though, up to 7.7 °F now.

    32 on the F scale.

    I just got back from partying with a couple of friends of mine. Screw the cold. It didn't ruin our night.

    6˚F with wind chill of -14˚F right now. There's no snow on the ground, which is nice because I hate walking on dry (below 20˚F or so) snow.

    In the windy city tonight:

    -2°F, windchill of -22°F

    All the snow has turned to solid ice, which has made parallel parking (especially getting out) a real PITA! Lucky for me, I bought Guitar Hero on Thursday, and haven't left the house much since!

    Around 0* right now, -20 wind chill. Still the ol 83 Delta 88 fired right up. Good car.
