With all this widespread cold, I was wondering just how cold some of you are...

Right now we're sitting at 14 with a wind chill of 0.

It would also be good to know how warm some of you might be... Just so we can be envious...

The end of last week it was in the Teens and we had an ice storm so bad that most of my town is still without power (We just got it back after 4 days!!), but today it was in the 60's. That's New England, if you don't like the weather, wait a minute and it will change.

this is hilarious. i'm in la jolla (so cal) and i'm freezing my arse off at like 60 degrees and we're having one of our freak rain storms, but then i look at the temps you all are dealing with and all i have to say is "sucks to be you". so cal rules. i bet to most of you what i'm experiencing is short and t-shirt weather.

49 in Maine - last week it was 9 degrees one night and 56 the next day. Unreal. I do have power and was only out for 15 or so hours. I know people who are still out four days later.

Mg384 I'm curious what part of Maine - we are all cautious not to give out too much info but maybe a county? I'm in Androscoggin County but spend most of my time in Cumberland County.
27 Year old married female law student (last year!!). Diagnosed w/ CD 4 years ago, IBS for over 10 years before that, which was probably the CD. I am sort of lactose intollerant too but can handle anything cultured and do well w/ lactose pills and lactaid. For crohns I am currently on Pentasa 4 pills/4x day and hysociamine prn. I also have bad acid reflux and have been on PPI's since age 13. I have been through prilosec, prevacid, and nexium. Currently I am on Protonix in the morning and Zantac at night. I also take a birth control pill to allow some fun in my life.
