Not a lot of snow over here (Columbus), but it's really really cold.
16 outside right now, can't go outside naked. =)

Lived in Cincinnati and used to go to the world's largest McDonalds on the OSU campus. Skyline Chili, too.

Meanwhile, in the UK, I'm worried about wiping a little bit of sleet off my car's wing mirrors.

That'd be a dream – I live bang in the middle of England and we're promised snow. It rained, as I expected.

You can have some of mine (I'm in New Hampshire), I've got over three feet in my yard and the piles at the end of my driveway are pushing ten feet (getting really hard to shovel).

[put at-character here]Brinke – hopefully you guys get your power back soon; what a nasty storm.

I was at this game, too- talk about bad weather-

The Freezer Bowl (January 10, 1982) was the 1981 AFC Championship Game between the San Diego Chargers and the Cincinnati Bengals. The game was played in the coldest temperature in NFL history in terms of wind chill. Air temperature was -9°F (-23°C), but the wind chill was -59°F (-51°C). It should be noted that the wind chill of -59F was calculated using the old formula for wind chill, which was only valid for a very small range of wind speeds. The temperature was -9F (-23C) and the winds were 27MPH (43 km/h). This equates to a -37F windchill using the newer formula. The game was played at Cincinnati's Riverfront Stadium.
