East Coast making Davos look like Hawaii

Oh, to be in Davos!

While the Northeast U.S. suffered under the yoke of yet another vicious winter storm, the 2,500 attendees at the World Economic Forum in Davos basked in relative warmth.

Where it was in the teens and approaching single digits in New Jersey and New York, Davos saw the mercury hit 40.

Yes, that Davos. The one in Switzerland, with the huge, snow-capped Alps and ice-covered streets.

Don't fret, though: The CNBC crew is working on bringing some of that Swiss warmth back home when the conference wraps up Friday.
