If you want to test them, come up here. We're in the middle of a nasty cold snap. Forecast -33C tonight, wind chill -43C. Highly effective for testing your gear, technique, and patience.

We are getting it now in North Carolina. It has been very cold for longer than normal, so it will stick. I have enough coffee, beer and wine, so I am good.

No really, my wife is actually asking about my preps and nodding approvingly. My friends and neighbors have been calling and asking what they should do. The religion is spreading.

I doubt it will be cold enough for long enough and far South enough to impact the pythons in the Everglades.

This morning I found the Geico mascot lying the sidewalk. I'm assuming he froze to death.
