    Only 4 times in the past 50 years has Boston had high temps in the single digits. Tomorrow could be number 5.

    Major snowstorm on the northeast while Florida is experiencing lizard-like conditions.

    Easily.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    There is a DC transplant at my local brewery and she even admits that when cold weather hits, that region is a bunch of wimps. They just have no clue how to deal with it, so they give up. Inch of snow? We quit. Below 20? We quit. It's hilarious.

    When that happens in Atlanta or 'Bama, it's sort of understandable. They don't have plow trucks or salt to deal with it. DC has no excuse.

    Wasn't it something like 10 below there on the day of Reagan's second inauguration? Insert joke about hell freezing over here.

    Plows? Rare event to see them. Our highway depts like to pretreat the roads with beet juice.

    1" will close schools. 6" shut down the area for 2 days. A foot? Armageddon.

    We moved into our current house the day of RR's 2nd. One of the pipes had frozen and the builder put a heat gun to it for an hour. No problems since.

    As of 2012 or so, ATL had a total of 8 plows for the entire metro area. Not kidding.

    Contractor across the street from me has 2 wheelers and 1 dump plow trucks and a Pickup plow. I have a plow, I'll bet there 20 or 30 pickup plows in my town of 600

    Should have clarified: DOT Plows.

    Dunno. Many Baltimore City classrooms were at 40° last week.
