I don't live there but, it was colder in Colorado than it is on Mars! A state was colder than a freakin planet! I live in the Chicago area and we had school canceled for two days (Yeah, extended winter break!)

I live in Florida, so the polar bears will have to make quite the trek to get here, not to mention the environment does not suit there needs much.
Also, due to our near-equatorial location, if the penguins decide to march on the polar bears, we may become the battleground. If this does happen, hopefully the alligators and invasive species of anacondas will team up with us humans.

it's been cold enough here that the school districts have delayed openings, and by cold enough I mean below 20F... it down to 9F the other night, wind chill below 0. lol we literally have no idea what to do with this weather... we don't have the means to deal with it.

i live in the south to AVOID this kinda weather. I hate the cold. I hate anything below 65F lol.

Now we have to make sure to get our bread and milk!

I got my truck stuck on a ice sheet covered road today literally a few feet from my driveway. At that point I said fk it and went back inside.

Our country roads don't get salted and I don't even have all terrain tires. Sloppy slip and sliding with an S10 is fun only if you have full coverage.

It's -40 right now. As a Canadian, I love whining about how cold it is but also love telling others how pretty it is outside. That ice and snow sure can shine. When I'm outside I always wish I was into taking photographs. I could really capture some awesome moments.


Nice. Photography is awesome... plan on taking my camera with me mountain biking next year and hopefully improving a little.

I live in Seattle, and it is one of the few places that did not get hit by that freezing air mass from the Arctic. But this region did experience a cold spell much like what the rest of the nation is going through. It's just that it happened a few weeks ago when temps were in the 20's. But still, that's nothing compared to what went on across the nation. While I am used to the cold (and I prefer the cold over the heat as long as the roads are cleared up), that was quite the shock.

A couple days ago, it was near 0 here in Maryland. There was sea smoke on the Chesapeake. In the harbors. It looked like death.

I envy hibernating animals.

I walked more than 3 miles to work on both of the coldest days this week -10 degrees, -40 wind chill at 4am. Had to lie to my coworkers and say I got a ride so they don't think I'm nuts. It wasn't that bad, just have to dress for the weather. I wanted to walk through the blizzard we got on Sunday but couldn't find a good reason.

I've seen this comment a few times about temperatures on Earth being colder than Mars and to speak frankly it's not that amazing. Cool in a way but not surprising.

The temperatures on Mars range drastically from around -140C to highs of around 20C. The coldest temperature officially ever recorded on Earth is only -89.2C. The average December day in Chicago can be colder than a recorded temperature on Mars but no recorded climate temperature on Earth has ever been colder than the coldest temperatures on Mars

I looked this up so it may be off a bit but during the Cryogenian period which saw the worst ice age and glaciation periods ever discovered during Earths history the average temperature was -56C
