How We're (Totally Not) Dealing With This Cold Snap
When it gets cold, some of us buck up and just put a sweatshirt on when we go out paddleboarding (see above). But the rest of us wimps are on Twitter commiserating (proving Tina Fey right).
We're having trouble with our day-to-day activities:

Our bodies are failing us:

Nothing seems to help, and no one seems to understand:
FUCK! WHY THE FUCK DONT YOU CLOSE THE DAMN DOOR WHEN YOU WALK IN?! ITS COLD AS FUCK OUTSIDE! CLOSE THE FUCKING DOOR!!! FUCK!— GRVNDMVSTR (@isaacSWEATSHIRT) January 12, 2013
Tourists (probably) want their money back:

It's not going to get any better for a little while. Temperatures are supposed to dip well below freezing for the next few nights. The National Weather Service sent out a warning (and we've left it in all caps for dramatic effect): "THIS WILL LIKELY BE THE COLDEST WEATHER OF THE SEASON SO FAR."
