Wow, it's really cold in many places in the US this week.

It dropped 20 degrees here in NE Texas between yesterday afternoon and this afternoon - I had to break out my cardigans and boots at this brisk high of 45. Brrr! Should get below freezing (about 30 degrees) tonight. Thankfully the high tomorrow will be around 50. Still chilly enough for booties and maybe a scarf but that's about it. Sunshine in the afternoon.

I'm expecting another cold snap or two but I gotta admit - I love this sunny, chilly weather. Usually it's cloudy and dark and sort of drippy in January so this is pretty nice. I mean, it's SUPPOSED to get cold in January!

It's -5 here in KC right now and it's not really that bad at all (I just came in from outside). There's very little wind, only a slight breeze at best. I actually like really cold weather IF there's no wind. Nice 'n crisp and brisk.

Living in the New York metro area, an area that gets 4 very distinct seasons, I can't stand it. Especially the change from summer to fall when it's that awkward point in late September/October and you don't know what to where because it's 40 degrees in the morning and 75 by 1 in the afternoon. Don't even get me started on winter. I'd rather have a year long summer/warm climate like So.Cal or Texas/Florida

Anyone else feel this way?
I live in the NYC metro and I love change of seasons, ESPECIALLY from summer to fall, when all the leaves start to change and it's just gorgeous.

Ya & Christmas to me would be strange if I lived in a warm climate.

You say that on here. I seriously doubt the talk around KC today is how itís a nice -5. Like I said before, I never once heard anyone say they like sub zero temps when I was in school. Ok there was always that one guy who had to be different, but they were usually a bit off, or full of it just to get attention. If you genuinely enjoy it, which I really donít believe, more power to you. You must be stoked right now.

Some people do love cold weather. I personally hate it, but I love where I live so I just deal with it. It happens a few times a year where it gets extremely cold and we just deal with it. Most of the winter here in NYC is entirely bearable.

I like the snow and cold weather, but I work from home, which makes a big difference. I was out this morning doing science experiments in the -25 degree temps. Currently -18, but bright and sunny and tonight we're supposed to hit -30 (not including windchill).
