So we wanted to know how you handled the cold in the Northeast and Midwest. We posted that query on our Facebook page early Monday morning (find us on Facebook), and you flooded our page with pictures and comments in about an hour. 

Here's a sampling: 

John Byrne: "It's so cold I saw a dog stuck to a fire hydrant :)" Phil Babilino: "It's so cold out the snowman has a coat on." 

In the following pages, we list some more of our favorite Facebook comments and some fantastic photos to go along with them. Cruise through and see if your comment is there.
