Nadine, I also feel badly for everyone that is so not used to this kind of weather and really are not prepared to deal with it in so many ways. Hopefully it will break soon and the temps will be where they belong (speaking of north to south).

21 degrees at my house right now. Yet in Juneau, Alaska, it is currently 44 degrees.

The main reason for the current cold is the North Atlantic Oscillation, which you can read about HERE. The graph does indeed track with all the cold winters I remember in the 1960's which you can see in mostly negative (blue).

Dave, that is very interesting. It is 33 here now with the forecast for a low of 22 overnight. The ocean is actually warmer than the air in the mid 50's, that is the only thing that is keeping it from going lower I think. I have it better than some, so I won't complain other than I am tired of it already! It's supposed to get colder Sunday night.

Watched weather reports along with pics of Atlanta and the vehicles skidding out of control and snow on top of ice; this in itself is a no win situation. If you couple this with people driving in these conditions that are not familiar with the dangers, it leads to the hugh pile ups that I saw. Hopefully, the temps will change soon and all this will be but a bad memory for the South.

I don't guess this is weather related, but I'm wondering if Rick, Gary, or anyone else felt the earthquake in California?

WooHoo! We just hit 56 degrees.

It almost feels like spring.

I hear ya, Dwayne... Kinda makes you want to break out the loud Hawaiian shirts and mix up some frozen drinks garnished with umbrellas! It's a balmy 62 in Birmingham right now. Not quite a tropical climate but a far cry from last week's Arctic scenario.

This morning was the first time in I don't know how many weeks that it was above 20 when I left the house for work. I was ready to put on flip flops
