And you thought you were cold. One Swedish reader reports, “I live in Uppsala, Sweden. It's been freezing since the 1st of December with an average temperature of -10. Now -5 feels like spring ;)”

"It's cold here in Parker, Pennsylvania!" this reader says.

But that river is not even fully frozen over—what are you complaining about?

If you ignore the hundreds of icicles, it doesn't even look that cold in this picture.

This reader said, “We took this photo while driving north on highway 395, passing Mono Lake, which was shrouded in a mammoth fog bank. Lake Tahoe ski weekend!”
