    In Indianapolis, it's colder. December was colder than normal. January was brutal and February shows no sign of an early thaw.

    The snow and ice falling out of the sky has been depressing and this year the cooler temps have kept it around.

    Is it a softer or harder winter where you are?

    It is so cold in New York City that the flashers on 42nd street are only describing themselves.

    It's a little bit colder here in the panhandle of Idaho than last winter. But not as cold as two winters ago. We also got 168 inches of snow that winter.

    The cold is not breaking records and the amount of snow has no chance of breaking the 1921 record.

    I do not think it is colder than normal here in Indiana. Usually when it is colder we get less snow, but when the temps range from the 20's to 30's we get a lot more snow and sleet. When winters were in the 0 to 20 range we hardly recieved any snow. The ave high for Lafayette in Jan was 33 degrees and the average low is 17. But these are averages and there are always the outliers that will support any position.

    Half a degree lower than "average" for the last 2 months with one week where we were above. There have also been several cold records reset. Additionally in my area the snowpack is 135% above normal.
