    Yep, everything. It actually looks nice. Don't see ice too much in central Texas.

    I had to drive about 20 MPH coming home from work b/c I was sliding around. I don't see how people live in this shit for months at a time.

    We use rock salt to melt the ice.

    I always found it strange that table salt will make ice water, or slush even colder, but rock salt will do the opposite.

    When I said I don't know how you guys do it, I wasn't being literal.

    I just couldn't live in weather like that. It's just miserable. It's only like 28 here and it sucks - too cold to do anything.

    My aunt sent me an email some 2-3 days ago saying it was -3 in Denver, not including the wind chill.

    No way. Screw that.

    The pics were beautiful though.

    Well..with the future "global cooling," you better get use to it.

    You can avert it all, burn more fossil fuels.

    I'm not surprised you find it strange, because that's not what happens

    She must live in the warm part of town.
    On the south side it's been in the minus double digits the past few nights and hasn't broken into the teens during the day.

    "Screw that" is exactly how I feel, too.

    Yes it does.

    Watch Myth-Busters on Discovery. They start with the question of, "Will a freezer cool a 6-pack faster than a fridge" Then they went even further to determine what will cool a sixer the quickest. Results after a few minutes?

    The beer in ice was at 57 degrees.
    The beer in ice water was 44 degrees.
    The beer in in salt water was 35.9 degrees.
    The beer in in the freezer was 55 degrees.
    The beer in the fridge was 60 degrees.

    Why was the beer in the salt water the coolest? Because the salt drops the freezing point of the water to 24 degrees. Fact.

    We seem to have gotten you to stop watching YouTube for your news updates, but you're still spouting off things you don't know.

    You are a braver soul than me, sir.
