The thing to know is, we are still snowed in. The first flakes came down around lunchtime on Friday; the last, late on Saturday night. It’s Tuesday now, and we’re still snowed in. My kids can’t even remember what it’s like to interact with other humans.
By now, you are probably aware that the East Coast is about to get murdered with 50 tons of acid methane snow over the weekend. You know this because people who live on the East Coast believe that their weather is EVERYONE’S weather.
Our lip balm nominations round was poppin', breaking records for number of comments on one of our posts, number of product nominations, number of recommendations for nominees, and more. Here are the top seven, apply and vote.
Tea is great for you, but what's the best way to make it? That's what we're going to be voting on this week, and we expect to be steeped in great nominations.
Your homes are warm and toasty after treating yourselves to the great recommendations in last week's Best Space Heater vote, but now your air is dry, and we need to balance that out with a humidifier. But which one? Head for the comments and nominate your favorite.
After a short night of restless sleep, it appears that forecasters are still predicting the end of the world in the Northeast this evening. If you haven't panicked yet, you have several hours to do so before it's too late. Hug your children. Hoard booze. This is not a drill. Here's what you need to know to make it…
Our space heater voting ended up being a dead heat, but the Delonghi Oil Filled 1500W Radiator ran the hottest in the end, figuratively. Oil filled space heaters have a slower start up time, but ultimately tend to be more capable of heating larger spaces, and retain their heat much longer after being turned off.
We've got your five most starred nominees for best space heater, and now it's time to find a winner. Read up and head for the poll.
Our series on products that keep you from freezing to death continues this week with space heaters. Head for comments section and generate some heat for your pick.
Here are the six pair of touchscreen gloves you swiped right the most on, and now it's time to find a winner. Hurry up, it's freezing.
It's freezing outside, and you want to check Dark Sky to further hammer home just how cold you are, but your smart device rejects the inputs from your obsolete gloves, asserting that they haven't changed since at least The Odyssey. You need hand protection from the elements that works with your touchscreen, but which…
The Buffalo Bills are offering local residents $10/hour plus game tickets if they swing by Ralph Wilson Stadium and help dig out the arena before the football game on Sunday.

The above photo, taken from a plane above Buffalo yesterday by photographer Jeff Suhr, shows the brutal lake effect snow storm in effect over Western New York right now. Some areas are expecting up to six feet of snow by the end of the week. These snowstorms are among the most intense in the world, and the processes…
Part of me loves this clip because that little kid is way cute and listening to Vin Scully talk about anything is always a good time, but another part of me hates it deeply.
Ski season and crap tons of snow don't always coincide with one another in the way resorts would like. That means they have to use the power of machines to manufacture snow.
