I grew up in East Texas, and as a youngster, I remember one winter in the 1980's when it actually got below freezing and we had icicles hanging from the roof, and thought, "wow, it's just like in the movies!". Up till then, I had thought it was special effects or something in the movies - I couldn't believe water actually froze outside. Ah, to be young and innocent once again.

This latest cold snap, it got so cold I heard two old guys talking, and one said to the other "Huh, you call this cold? Well, back in my day it would get so co- you know, actually, this is colder, now that I think about it."

So take the quiz and come back and tell us just how cold it got in your neck of the woods. Bonus points for hyperbole. Winners and Easiest/hardest from last week's quiz can be found in the NotNewsletter in your email inbox, or you can check out the newsletter comments thread.

Don't forget the Easy Quiz, there's only one tricky one on there this week..

Good luck, and if you have any issues with the quiz, please reply to this comment.

Are the canals frozen over? If so, are people allowed to ice skate on them?

It's been above freezing on the best coast all week.

Oh wait, it hit freezing here around sunrise today, my bad.  Brrrr!

Made it to the top of the list - never happened before - it'll be off the top 10 by the time you read this - but still :-)

It's 14° f  where I live right now. Snow tonight for that extra kick in the plums as the cold air retreats. Predicted 60°f on Monday.

I have beer. There's football on Sunday.

It's actually a toasty 44 degrees here in Middle Tennessee, and it's not supposed to get below freezing tonight.

Cold enough indoors to freeze a hydraulic line on our main machine.  Also something I've never seen before, a thermostat froze till it wouldn't kick on the heat.  I kid you not, trying to figure out what was wrong with it, took it off the wall to another room that was warmer, and it started working again. I left it running, and later on, it froze again.  It was better to just turn off the heater, since it blew cold air around.  Even weirder part, the thermostat isn't even on an exterior wall.  No, I am not taking my coat off.

Kirablue42: I got 711.


I got a lousy 351.


Apparently I did not spend enough time on FARK, even though I have been frozen in.

Of course, most of the time I was here I was pretty drunk....

Got redirected to a Wal-Mart ad after 2 questions in, that was a 1st for that.

Why isn't there a list for lowest scores?  We need validation too

/2 right but one was a guess

It's 8.1 here, but that's normal.

We need more snow here in Seattle. Today we got a little rain, but I don't think it's cold enough to increase the snowpack.

If I have to refrain from washing my car this summer, I'm going to be pissed.

58 here in San Diego. I sympathize with the rest of you poor souls.
