  1. Escape the Pain of a Long and Brutal Winter With Flask Mittens

    Winter is coming.

    Probably if the Starks had something like this, the rest of Westeros wouldn't complain about how dour they were all the time.

  2. Take Heart, Sweet Summer Children: Shivering Might Help You Lose Body Fat

    Get that shriveled White Walker look you've always been jealous of.

    It was 28 degrees Fahrenheit this morning when I got to work. Tomorrow, it might snow up to a foot in New York again. But it's worth it if it means I don't have to exercise, am I right, laaaaadies?! No, wait, it's not. Please. I want to feel the sun again.

  3. This Winter Has Officially Been Especially Miserable, According to Science

    We were all such sweet summer children up until now.

    If you're currently located above the Mason-Dixon line, then you are probably super-bummed right now. That's because this winter has been the coldest that most major Northeastern and Midwestern cities, including New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, and worst of all, Detroit, have seen since 1950, according to a recent index created by meteorologists.

    Unless the mere thought of snow sends you into a blind rage at this point.

    You may not be the biggest fan of snow after all the recent storms, but maybe this microscopic view of snowflakes forming can turn that opinion around—until, of course, the next time it snows, which is apparently every day forever. Maybe remembering this video will brighten your day next time your commute has you slogging through mounds of slush.

    S'no Day like a snow day.

    Redditor atrubetskoy has created a map that shows how much snow on average a region requires in order for school to be cancelled. Take a look at the awesome results below to see what you have to ask Mother Nature for if you want a day off to do adorable snow things.

  6. A Comet May Have Caused the Winter of 536 to Last for 10 Years

    Oh, that's why it's called the Dark Ages

    General consensus is that the Dark Ages sucked. Unicorns went extinct, you were either a witch or had the plague, and oh yeah, winter lasted for ten years once.

  7. “Janus” Was Probably Not The Best Name To Give Give This Storm, Weather Channel

    Fire your graphics team. Alternately, give them all raises.

    The Weather Channel does this thing now where they give practically every rain cloud a name so they can scare people into watching. They probably thought they were being clever by naming this one after the Roman god from which we derive the word "January." Instead it sort of backfired, didn't it? Really a bummer for everyone involved.

  8. Thousands of Snowy Owls Are Migrating to Florida Because It’s Too Cold in Canada

    It's definitely not because they want to go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando. Nope.

    Snowy owls tend to stick to parts of the continent that are, y'know, snowy — but anything goes in this weird post-polar vortex world of ours, and now there are reports of snowy owl sightings as far south as Florida. That's right, it's too cold in Canada for animals that have the word "snow" in their names.

  9. Electric Scooter Designed For Snow Travel Is Equal Parts Amazing And Awkward

    They set their test video to the Power Rangers theme, so, scales tipped toward amazing.

    This electric scooter from DK Laboratories took over 18 months to build from scratch, and comes complete with a ski in the front for optimal snow-travel. Even though this looks functional for snowy pedestrian cities (Toronto and NYC, I'm lookin' at you), there's still the whole thing where it's still a scooter, which just makes it super uncool.

  10. This Is What Happens When You Use A Water Gun Outside (When It’s As Cold As Mars)

    Cloud-Making 101.

    Yesterday we told you that a bunch of Canada got colder than Mars. Today, it looks like the same is true for the majority of North America. This guy in Northern Ontario (where it was -41°C and -41°F) filled a SuperSoaker with boiling water, went out into the cold, and created his own clouds. It's like the intense version of seeing your breath.
