My son back in Mays Landing says frozen water pipes back there. Afraid this is just a sneak preview of Sunday-Tuesday. It's bad when they close the schools in Minnesota for Mon. Good luck. Sal

Sneakinup..I am in Denville, next town over, not too many Airstreams around here, but a few.

sb55-I grew up camping in South Hero, VT, there was a campground and cottages, next to a small gold course by the ferry slip. Went there many many years. Happy memories.

It was -7F here yesterday morning, but up to 28 today. We're really appreciating our fireplace insert these days!

Low here tonight projected to be -18F, and worse through Tuesday. The state governor already closed the public school system state wide for Monday due to cold temps and wind chills projected to be up to -60F (that's MINUS 60 degrees F). We (and half the rest of the city) replaced the battery in our truck today as insurance against the cold. It was 5 years old.
The weathermen are calling it an "old fashioned Minnesota winter". My dad would say "it's colder than a well diggers butt". I agree with Dad.

Others might say, "It's colder than a witch's ...!"

Per CNN, "Arctic blast dropping temperatures in U.S. to lows not seen in years".

You are talking about Wilcox Cove cottages and golf course. It's for sale if you're interested and have deep pockets!

Dad probably would never have said the witches --- thing. As it was, Mom would scold him saying "Ira, don't talk like that in front of the children" because, of course, "butt" was vulgar! I've taught my children to say Dad's statement and am working on the grandchildren.

How DO our Canadian friends tolerate this kind of cold all winter?

We are having a blizzard here, with winds picking up and temperatures dropping. It is COLD outside and going to get COLDER. Currently 13 degrees with 25-30 mph winds, and going to be minus 19 degrees tonight.

It is so COLD, with the blowing snow and wind, that Miss Lily.... a southern gal, ya know....will not do her business. She has not peed since about 8pm last night. Have tried to put her out twice this am, she takes a couple of steps into that mess and comes right back inside. Currently at 15+ hours.

We are snug inside, cleaning the house and packing to head south....a fire in the woodstove and Lily curled up, asleep, on the couch.

"In Canada, the province of Ontario is facing temperatures of -40C (-40F) with wind chill... People on the US north-east coast were warned to prepare themselves for the cold front sweeping in on Tuesday from the Midwest"...

Per BBC, "North America arctic blast creeps east".

Having a balmy +9 here in Fairbanks. Only a few days so far this winter that hit -40 actual temp not wind chill. In 20 years here schools have never closed for cold temps, however they do stop outside recess for the little kids when it is colder than -20.

I'll second that. I'm all the way down in Tucson and the nights are still pretty chilly.

DC area - about 5 degrees this morning, with wind chills down around -10. Many schools are closed or have delays, but the federal government is open on the normal schedule. The drive in to work was fine, aside from some wind.

I really, really hope I did a good job winterizing the camper!
