Post your comments and Heidi will read some of them in the 10am hour of CNN Newsroom

    NOT funny the dog being frozen jokes!!! So many people do not realize the cold can hurt pets, too!!! And pets need to be taken care of when it's hot or cold outside as well as fed properly and with fresh clean water and lots of loving hugs!! They don't ask for much compared to humans. Yeah, I know pets have fur coats on so okay then put on your fur coat and stay outside all day when it's real cold!!! Don't have a pet if you don't know how to take care of them.

    It's so cold that we are stranded at our home in Ellijay, GA. There are cars littered all over the road and in the ditches leading from our home. 4-Wheel drives won't even make it up or down our hill.

    It has continued to snow throughout the night and has just made conditions worse. We are unable to get to the store to replenish our groceries and it doesn't look like we will be getting away anytime soon.

    The positive side however, is that we still have power for now, so we are very thankful for that.

    We have to walk .25mi one way to get to our hen farm we run and it's so cold it hurts on our skin. Service trucks for our farm cannot get in/out so we will have to struggle to hang in there long enough for roads to clear.

    Good Morning Heidi,

    The job loss report released this morning is of no real surprise. I have found that while all news outlets ( even local ones) are reporting and commeting on the job loss report. the local media otlets are quick to include that local state job loss and unemployment are not as high as the national report. When In reality, the unemployment rate is really much higher than what is being reported.

    Keep in mind that after you have exhausted all of your states unemployment beenfits you just fall off the rolls. the unemployment rate is actually much higher than what is being shown and reported. In think that the unemployment rate is much higher that 10 %. Try more like 15% or higher . That is the REAL REPORT.
