I was going to post, I hope everyone survives it, but no, at least a dozen people have perished in this storm so far...
And arctic air blast will happen again right after this one.

How sad that 12 have perished so far.

I read an article recently which said that, in contrast to our colder winter here in the U.S., Siberia is receiving a relatively warmer winter. 

Things we can do to survive the worst of winter:

Keep car gas tanks between full and half-full.  Never let the needle go below the half mark, if at all possible.

For the ladies, keep a mental map of the locations of any full-service gas stations.  The tiny extra cost for gas is worth the extra service in winter.

By late autumn, cars should have been given an extra inspection and serviced.  Extra attention should be paid to tire tread, battery age, and windshield wiper rubbers.  I never allow a car battery here in the north to age beyond three years before being replaced, as there is a credit for any life left on the old batteries.  Of course we park outside, because the garage has been turned into a root-cellar, so our cars take more stress in winter.  :)

Cars parked outdoors in winter need to be driven a little daily or maybe every other day to maintain battery charge, barring any multi-day blizzard.  Some of the driving should be done without auxiliary appliances running, such as radio, headlights, heater on full blast, defroster, etc., to allow the battery to be topped off by the spinning of the car's wheels (axle=dynamo).

Spend a little extra time hunting for a good 4wd vehicle for those in the north.  We always buy used cars, and it takes a while to find good 4wd ones, but is well worth the trouble.  Even smaller cars sometimes now come with that option.  The combination of 4wd and the lowest gears can make a difference on roads that might otherwise be unnavigable.  Better yet don't go out unless there is no other option.  ;)

Make sure every member of the family has - and uses - hat and gloves, etc.  Don't allow the men to be stoics about this.  8)

Other ideas?

Last night, Hubby checked temps in Antarctica for comparison with what we've been experiencing here in the Northern U.S.  Antarctica was much warmer, at 33 degrees F.  We're going down to -1 tonight, not counting wind chill.  Of course, it is summer in the Southern Hemisphere right now...

JFK chaos: Airport buckles under pressure of rescheduled flights, broken equipment and a collision on the tarmac, resulting in severe delays for passengers two days after Bomb Cyclone struck

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5242803/Two-planes-crash-JFK-airport.html

Thousands of passengers are stranded at John F Kennedy airport following more than 6,000 flight cancellations or delays stemming from the 'bomb cyclone' that rocked the Northeast on Thursday.
The airport had closed on Thursday afternoon due to the storm and was reopened on Friday morning.

America is colder than MARS! East Coast shivers in record deep freeze as the thermometer plunges to -13F with a windchill factor of -100f in parts of New Hampshire leaving experts warning of frostbite in 10 MINUTES

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5241909/Northeast-shivers-deadly-cold.html

The snowstorm that hit the East Coast with frigid, wind-whipped whiteness and ice that wouldn’t melt seems to pick a different bull’s eye target each day, with a wind chill close to minus 100 at the top of New Hampshire’s Mount Washington vying for world’s coldest place with the Canadian town of Armstrong, Ontario.

On Saturday, jaw-clenching temperatures throughout the Northeast hit Burlington, Vermont, at minus 1 and a wind chill of minus 30. Both Philadelphia and New York were shivering at 8 degrees.

And in Hartford, Connecticut, a brutal cold of 10 degrees yielded a wind chill of minus 20. Weather experts say that Mount Washington in New Hampshire could hit -100f with wind chill - colder than the surface of Mars.

Max.

Wow, -100 degrees F in NH makes us colder than Siberia now.  They must be partying over that... ;)

Heavy Rain in California May Cause Flash Flooding and Mudslides; Milder Temperatures Expected Across the Country

Heavy rainfall is expected over southern California as a strengthening Pacific system pushes inland. A major issue will be the burn scar areas, which will be susceptible to flash floods, mudslides, and debris flows. Temperatures across much of the country will warm up to near, or above, seasonal average temperatures as the arctic air mass moderates.

...High risk of flash flooding over portions of California in areas of
burn scars...


...Milder conditions expected over most of the U.S...

As a Pacific frontal system moves into southern California, heavy rainfall
will
continue spreading across the region. Terrain will also aid in
increasing rainfall rates. Burn scars from the active fire weather season
will make conditions favorable for flash flooding--in addition to
mudslides, debris flow, and other hydrologic issues. Because of the heavy
rainfall and other conditions in place, a high risk of flash flooding is
possible through Tuesday night. By Wednesday, the front will move east
toward the southern Plains--diminishing the rainfall over southern
California.  In addition to the heavy rainfall across the area, snow
across the Sierra Nevada will also occur during this event.

A separate frontal system will also approach the Pacific Northwest this
morning and move inland during the day. Onshore flow will promote an
increase in rainfall across the area throughout the day in addition to
higher elevation snow--which will begin to taper off by Wednesday morning.
The front will continue pushing eastward across the Intermountain West on
Tuesday evening and into Wednesday morning. Precipitation, including
higher elevation snow, will spread across the entire Intermountain West on
Wednesday. By Thursday, most of this activity will have shifted east of
the Rockies. There will be no rest for the weary, however, as another
system approaches the Pacific Northwest on Thursday morning--giving way to
more precipitation across that area.

Temperatures across the central and eastern U.S. will be well above normal
through Thursday.
  However, another Arctic airmass begins to dive across
the northern Plains by Thursday--bringing very cold temperatures to the
U.S. once again.  These temperatures are expected to spread eastward
beyond the short term period.

Story Highlights
Winter Storm Hunter will bring wind-driven snow to parts of the northern Plains into Thursday.

Near-blizzard conditions are possible in parts of the Dakotas, Nebraska, western Iowa and Minnesota.

Another round of snow and ice will develop Friday in the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes, spreading into the interior Northeast Saturday.

An ice storm is possible in these areas Friday and Saturday.

Winter Storm Hunter will bring a mess of heavy snow, freezing rain and sleet from the West to the Plains, Midwest and Northeast through Saturday.
