MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

It is not often that you find just about everyone agreeing on anything. There is one thing that has everyone on the same page and that's the weather.

The gas pumps are not exactly the ole water cooler but you will find that everyone is stopping to fill up.
    
This is what some people have to say about the ever frigid temps.

Keeping warm with a knit hat, one man tried to avoided uncertain conditions by keeping his gas tank full.
    
"It's very difficult," he said. "Try not to drive on ‘E' in this weather, try and keep it as full as possible."

Another man said winter is tiresome.

"Really tired of it," he said of winter's biting cold. "I wish it would kind of go away. Ready for summer again. People down here are not used to this long cold weather, not at all. Not used to seeing my breath, you know? Not in Memphis. May be up North somewhere, but not here. I'm on bone dry 'E,' so I just had to wait till the last minute, yeah."

One gentleman at the grocer said the weather has been rather consistent throughout this winter season.

"Oh yeah, I mean this is one of the first times in years we have had consistent cold," he said. "I mean, no warm in the middle. Every other day we are dealing with freezing rain or chance of snow. Weather's gotten below 20, so I mean it's different but we need it."

A Memphis woman said she is fed up with Memphis weather.

"Absolutely I'm tired of it. I'm freezing," she said. "I don't like being cold. Not riding on 'E' today because I have to go to work in Arkansas, so I did not want to stop later. So I just decided to get it over with. Bite the bullet."

This is where it would be great to say that things are about to change. It would be nice. But the best we can offer is spring is just a little over 40 days away.
