Boston, it's cold outside. Really, really cold. With temperatures at or below 0 degrees in many areas Thursday — and the coldest it's been in Boston for four years — some of us are finding it just too difficult to deal. We present the five stages of dealing with Boston's frigid temperatures as told through social media:

Bargaining: Some people looked for some sort of compromise with mother nature.

Depression: Then there were those who just wanted to retreat from the world.


Acceptance: Finally, many have chosen to accept the weather and move on.
