Yo, what the hell is up with this weather? Seriously. We wake up every single day and think, "Hey, maybe it'll be nice outside today!" But nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. Annnnnnd….nope. Still snowy. Still breezy. And still freezing. Stupid @$#%^*& polar vortex!

The weather has some people out here doing some really dumb things, too. For example, check out what happened in Philadelphia earlier this week. Someone stole a truck owned by the Mama's Boy Heating Oil company in the middle of the night on Monday. Reason being, the truck was filled with about 3,000 gallons of fuel, which is worth about $13,000. But if we had to guess, they probably didn't do it for the money. They likely did it because it's sooooooo cold out that people are burning through heating oil like it's nothing. So we wouldn't be surprised at all if whoever took the truck stole it for that reason.

Does that make it right? Hell no. Mama's Boy owner Chris Thomas only has two trucks in his fleet and that particular truck was the company's main truck. And it's going to be hard to conceal, seeing as how it says "MAMA'S BOY" on the side of it. But this cold is clearly no joke right now—and it obviously has some people acting a fool when it comes to trying to heat their homes.

Spring can't come soon enough...
