i love all things winter, and snow, Im from the United Kingdom. When it snows all schools and businesses close down. Britain isn't ready for a big freeze at all. but yet i will always be on my skis going through the mountains in Wales. its the best. would love to go to Alaska and ski but a bit expensive. Someone take me there if you want to.

I remember having "winter" as a season - there was no "polar vortex" - it's winter. The Ohio River turned to ice in 1977 (I think that's the year) and now schools close if they mention the word "snow". It's winter - it will be here for a bit but we will see spring again.

In northern New York, we had the below zero temperatures, the wind chill, and we had 4 feet of snow dumped on us in 24 hours from a lake effect snowstorm.  We are projected to get another foot or two today! 


The pictures from the Polar Vortex are amazing!
