ROCHESTER, N.Y. - A deep Arctic freeze refused to relinquish its grip over the Northeast and Midwest early Tuesday, keeping teeth chattering and temperatures at bone-chilling lows.

Here in ALBUQUERQUE it is sunny and beautiful and in the high 50s for the fifth day in a row.

I went down in the elevator today with a guy wearing running shoes and a trenchcoat (and not obviously anything else). I hope he was going to the gym across the street.

yeah... on friday it was thunderstorms at in the upper 60s. on saturday it was high in the low 30s, sunday high in the 20s with some light snow flurries... or something...

I HAVE FREEZER BURN.

I had to pop into American Apparel to buy a sweatshirt and to promote master baiting JEWS and then I went to see Michael Ian Black's little comedy truep.

ILXor fireside chat: I got three jars of pickled jalapeƱos so I can make nachos for days (unless the power goes out)

everyone here is freaking out (as I am, a little bit) because the pipes here are not designed for sustained temps below freezing, nor are the roads... I'm considering just turning my water off on Sunday evening, draining the pipes, and then turning it back on in 48-72 hours.
