We just set a record for most consecutive hours below freezing. I'm feeling the effects!

Remember: the next summer where snow doesn't melt will be the start of a new ice age.

It has been pretty damn cold the last several weeks. I go out walking every morning at 5AM and since mid-January, I have needed gloves, scarfs, bank-robber hats...the works.

I don't think we've been above 32 degrees around here since the New England Patriots were still in the playoffs. Damn cold. Just damn, damn, cold.

There are very few places on the planet affected by lake effect weather. Man-made global warming is a bunch of absurd leftist fantasy.

But you cannot really disprove it by pointing to areas which are subject to this phenomenon.

There are lessons in life brought by lake effect storms. They are good lessons, if not often pleasant ones.

Some of these look like older pictures. Most of these places are probably over 6 feet by now. I saw Parish at 88" on Accuweather. Of course, some of that will pack down due to the weight.

The poor global warming whackos just never get a break - record low temps, record snowfall, citrus crop ruined in CA. BTW, the world's stupidest woman, Boxer, wants federal funding for not only the ruined citrus crop, but also last summer's heat. What a dip.

True. The warmer start to winter has kept the lakes warmer and ice-free longer allowing this kind of snow to happen now.

But my Lake Erie is freezing over on the western end, probably cutting off a lot of the lake effect snow on the south shore.

I hope you folks are staying warm. I've been here in Southern Illinois for 10-years now and this is the coldest Winter in that time.

It is bitterly cold here.

Any more global warming and I am going to freeze off my rear end.

I'm in NYC, but it's been fairly chilly. I couldn't imagine lake effect snow.

Chilly, but dry. Very windy today.
Now you should have that terrier lay across your lap, better than a comforter.

Big Freeze [TV-PG]
Thursday, February 8, 2007, at 08P

Recent evidence suggests we might be heading towards a Big Freeze with the power to cause a global catastrophe with mass extinctions. This new freezing climate could hit us far sooner than we think with little or no warning. The next ice-age may stillbe in the distant future but ironically could Global Warming be a possible trigger that will accelerate climate change? Naked Science examines what may cause temperatures to plummet and how abrupt climate change could spell disaster for Earth.

I grew up in Oswego. I think this is more snow in a day than any during the 18 years I lived there.

Whoa, I just looked at those pictures. I'd probably be nuts by now. Some of my classmates were looking at jobs at colleges in Syracuse and Rochester; I think we're all glad we're someplace else. Especially the one that turned down Syracuse for Tallahassee. : )

We are just 10 miles south of the thruway...little snow here but lots of cold!! My daughter took a look at these pictures and got a little angry.....she wants the snow so she can get out on the snowmobile!!...seems our neck of the woods just isn't in the path of all those lake bands.

That picture reminds me of a few winters I spent up in Monroe County, NY. Brutal, just brutal.
