I Feel You, Bro: Escaped Inmate Turns Himself In Because He Was Cold

What Happens When You Blow Soap Bubbles In The Freezing Cold

When Washington-based photographer Angela Kelly saw that the local temperatures were dropping to just 14 degrees last week, she had an idea. She grabbed her camera, her seven-year-old son, and a bunch of soapy water, and went outside to blow bubbles. What happened next was amazing.

New York, New Jersey Forced To Evacuate Again

The Nor'easter threatening the already-battered Atlantic Coast is weakening, but New York and New Jersey are still ordering evacuations ahead of the storm, which is already pelting Washington with ice and stirring seas as high as 7.5 feet off New York. In New York City, parks and beaches have been closed, construction halted, and 770 flight…

WE∆THER Is About To Make Your Morning Routine Much Easier

Fact: dressing oneself gets more and more difficult as the year progresses. While as little clothing as possible is always a safe bet for those middle months, come October every single outfit must be chosen with the day's forecast in mind … and we know full well that a numerical temperature and, like, an ico…

Inclement Weather Turns People On

Honestly, I was just kind of looking for an excuse to use the word inclement -- one of my favorites -- and this study seemed like the perfect vehicle. But also, it contains important findings about inclement weather and how it makes people horny. Research done by Trojan found that about 70 percent of America…

Tropical Storm Fabio Is The Sexiest Storm Ever

My tropical storm has a first name, it's F-A-B-I-O! But really you guys, the latest weather system ravaging its way across the Pacific is named Fabio. So far the storm doesn't pose a threat to any land besides a tiny island, so you don't have to feel weird about any sexual feelings this swirling ma…

It’s Gonna Be One Hell Of A Hot Week

Tomorrow, it's supposed to be 106 degrees in New York City, so I can really relate to this apocalyptic weather report. This weekend might be rough, but it's nothing compared to what'll happen once Godzilla comes up off the coast. What a heat wave! [YouTube]…

Bret Michaels: Weather Man

Last week, before his appearance on "Bachelor Pad" last night or the news that he's teaming up with Donald Trump for a reality series that sounds like far too wholesome (concept: Bret helps people "overcome their problems"), Bret Michaels had another TV gig.

5 Stars Who Got Stranded In The Snowpocalypse

The worst part about the snowpocalypse was that no one was prepared for it. If I had known that Ed Westwick was going to be stranded at the airport in Iceland for 48 hours, I would have been waiting there to "entertain" him. But alas, the "Gossip Girl" bad boy "walked into the…

Girl Talk: How I Almost Died In This Weekend’s Blizzard

Yesterday I almost died. Not in a “life flashing before me” kind of way – but in a cold, painful, this-blizzard-totally-sucks kind of way. I got stuck in the Snowpocalypse. You know, the Snowpocalypse—the weekend storm that’s currently blanketing the East Coast. I spent Christmas in Philadelphia, DJing an annual Christmas night party. Yesterday morning…

Frisky Reader Advice: How You Deal With The Winter Blues

If you thought this fall/winter was gnarly before, get ready for it to get a whole lot worse: This weekend saw the end of Daylight Saving Time, which means we'll lose another hour of sunlight. For some, that's no big deal, but for the rest of us, it means we'll need to hunker…

How Do You Deal With The Winter Blues?

Guys, fall/winter gloom has officially arrived. By the late afternoon it's already dark out! I don't know about you, but the lack of serious sunlight hours are starting to get to me. On the east coast, anyway, we're averaging around 10 hours of sun light a day, which sounds like a lot, but isn't really,…

Talk About The Weather, Make Friends

In England, a welcome packet for Polish migrant workers advises them that a good way to start a conversation is to make a comment about the weather.
