A polar vortex has seized the Midwest, bringing snowstorms and the coldest weather in a generation. Are you or people you know affected by the snow and frigid temperatures?

Do you enjoy winter weather? What do you like about the season? What do you dislike about it? How do you like to spend cold or snowy days?

If you don’t get cold weather where you live, are you happy about that or not? Why?
