To all the Spikey’s (followers) in North America, stay safe n warm…!
Cannot fathom what it must be like, such temperatures, OR the sheer volume of snow. It’s totally alien to me, and have no concept of what you are going through, but we send you are best wishes, oner and all.
Friends, as of this writing, Lancaster, NY is in a state of emergency. We have at least 4 feet of snow on the ground, NOT counting drifts, and it is still coming down.

I know, same here – not seen snow on the ground here since 1985 I think, and then it was 0.5cm
