Like the snow and cold weather? One way or another, you'll have to get used to it. The National Weather Service was predicting that temperatures would dip to about 1 degree overnight into Thursday morning, with a high of about 22 degrees on Thursday — and possibly more snow.

Thursday into Friday night could get as cold as 3 degrees — with a chance of snow showers and overnight temperatures in the teens to predicted to last through the weekend.

Even so, people were out on Wednesday after Tuesday's snowstorm, whether shopping, shoveling — or sledding. Even being in school for the day — after a delayed opening on Wednesday morning — didn't stop some determined kids (with a few brave moms) from heading out in 15-degree weather late in the afternoon to enjoy the perfect powder in a favorite sledding hill behind Oak Street School.

Equally adventurous (or crazy, depending on your point of view) was the group of guys on snow-covered Olcott Field behind Bernards High in Bernardsville, just tossing around a football with a few friends.

Tell us how you coped with the snow and extreme cold in the comments section below. Do you have any tips for staying warm — and safe?
