This afternoon I was here:

20 above Zero - People in Miami all die.
Michiganders close the windows.

Tonight, we're back here again:

Zero-3:
Californians fly away to Mexico .
People in Michigan get out their winter coats.

(Wind chill 10 below zero:
Hollywood disintegrates.
The Girl Scouts in Michigan are selling cookies door to door.

Man, is it EVER going to end?

Hehe, am I keeping the rest of you cold yet too?

I have a picture my mom painted of Nova Scotia that makes me feel cold when I look at it. Too many more of these 70 degree days in Febuary and I'll have to go look at it.

Keith, I really didn't need to hear that.

The kids had another snow day off of school today. It's gotten to the point where they're complaining about it. My youngest, last night, said "I don't want another snow day, I want to go to school". They know that at this point they have to make them up later.

OK. 'Can't stand it any longer. In the thread title what the heck does "OT" stand for?

Open thread?
Over the top?
Old Top?
Overly temperamental?
Only Techs?
