    Not only is it being used as a buzz-word, IMO it's not even close to being a piece of polar vortex.
    It could be worse.

    Surprisingly, Brian Williams is very concerned, and has used the word extreme about 27 times. Hopefully we can survive this outbreak of room temperature weather.

    The media continues to get dumber and dumber about this stuff all the time. OMG!! It's cooler than normal!! Everybody freak the frak out!! Cheese 'n rice, get over it and put on a sweatshirt in the evening. It's back to the 80s by the weekend.


    All people who make sweepingly generalized, stupid, uninformed comments are idiots.

    I'm good on bread and milk. Now I just need to find my 1/4 zip fleece pullover and hunker down for the week.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

It's quite comical, really - like watching people freak out over a tornado watch when they don't know the difference between a watch and a warning.

    Can the polar vortex be here to stay? It was nice being out on the deck tonight without any mosquitos to bother me.
