The cold war era may be a thing of the past, but the cold weather refuses to go away. Winter ends on March 19 and as far as most people are concerned, they wish it would end right now.
Some folks who are not very religious, or spiritual are praying for this God forsaken record-low temperatures to finally end. Soon others will be dealing with more snow and much colder temperatures. Forecasters say the "polar vortex" that's bringing the frigid air may decide to stay a while. This news has lots of people struggling.
"We left for a Florida trip and avoided the snow and cold weather", said local business owner Dennis Thomson. But the sunshine state is also experiencing colder than usual temperatures.
The cold snap is also stretching supplies of oil heat. NJ Homeowner Jack Hopkins said "we paid over eight hundred dollars to fill up our oil tank". Propane gas is also scarce and folks are worried if there is enough fuel to keep warm.
These low temperatures have been felt across all 50 states and even Hawaii experienced unseasonably cold temperatures this weekend.
