    No way!

    It's possible, I haven't thought too much about it

    I live on the mid atlatinc and it has been unfortunately colder but not cold we havn’t seen before (granted its been 20 years).  As much I as I hate cold I could always deal.  Its the wind that sucks.  Give me cold and no wind and I’ll survive but if you throw wind in there I will complain like a child.

    It’s -44 Celcius here today. I do not care who you are that is freaking cold! This is the coldest winter we have had in over 100 years, so no, it is just bloody cold.

    Anyone bitching about the cold/global warming should have to come and live here for a week. It’s colder than the North pole, and colder than Mars (I wish that was an exageration)

    This one is probably better for this thread.

    @jb20:  I don’t really know. I know that global warming is a huge issue, but I don’t think my lack of cold tolerance is related to it. I’ve lived in the south for the last 12 years, so I’m not accustomed for four inches of snow and below freezing temperatures. They happen here, but it’s not a regular thing like it is in other places.
