I lived in MA when I first moved to the US. Only for one winter, I don't think I could have made it through a second. I remember at one point it had been cold for so long that when it actually got to 0c and it felt warm. You folks in MA are made of sterner stuff than I!

MA is like the tropics in the winter compared to northern Minnesota. When I was growing up, 30 F to 50 F below 0 was common in January and February. I lived in a small country village and we had 5 cars but only a two car garage so every night before we went to bed, someone would go out and start the cars that were outside and let them run for 15 minutes so the engines wouldn't freeze up over night. If you didn't start your cars before bedtime, many times they wouldn't start with a jump or pushing them (even with a stick shift) and then you would have to wait until the temperature rose to above 0 F to get them started.

Then every morning, you started up the car and then went back in the house and ate breakfast to get rid of the ice on the windows and warm the interior. Finally when you started moving the car it sounded like you had flat tires since the part of the tire that was on the ground had frozen in a flat position. About 10 minutes later the tires heated up and the tires finally became round again.

When it hit 0 C or 32 F, people would go out without jackets. That was spring like weather.

The strange thing that most people did was heat their houses to about 85 F so that when they came in from the cold, they would immediately warm up. It was dry heat (has to be dry since cold weather can't hold much moisture so everyone's houses felt hot but something like Phoenix at a mild 85 F.
