Curmudgeon (noun): a person who is easily annoyed or angered and who often complains.
Merriam-Webster's definition seems to encapsulate the general mood of many cooped-up, frustrated and downright irate Tri-Staters as we deal with arctic temps.
Wednesday is National Curmudgeon Day, and boy are we angry.
