Channeling Winter Frustrations Using Postcards!

I'm going to assume this is a fact this morning...no one likes winter today.  The arctic air has swept through the United States, moving across the Midwest and causing major headaches to commuters and anyone who has to go outside. 
**WARNING** do not go outside.  
Yesterday afternoon, the Green Bay Packers lost, to the San Francisco 49ers, on their turf that was -10 degrees in windchill. This morning, Green Bay,Wisconsin is at -16 degrees and it feels like -44 (fun!). Many more places are affected today by this life-threatening cold. So I thought, why not write a post about winter. It won't be about the pretty winter-scene postcards (which many are), or about natural disasters caused by winter conditions (which happens a lot). No, this post is merely images of winter around the world.
