Hey, bucky, it isn't fun! I'm actually sleeping downstairs for most of the night because if I'm gonna sweat, I might as well not make hubby miserable. Since someone has to be up a half dozen times a night, it might as well be me (I'm a long-time insomniac anyway, so why should he suffer?). So it's been me and my dogs in recent years. Yes, we have a good, long term marriage. Hubby jokes about it all and takes it in good nature. We were both blessed with good sense of humour. but I am thinking of wearing the top of the long johns the next time I'm going to walk a half mile or more.

For the first time, in a very long time, they closed schools due to the bitter cold. When I woke up this morning, the actual temperature was -20... Love it.. Still managed to wear sandals to work... Just had to bring socks in the truck just in case.. :)

That's just not true; we did want to leave the house! Sorry, I thought you meant parents.

What was that big burning object with the burning tail in the sky over your house Sushi? It was on the 10:00 pm news here. (for real ! ) They said it was a meteorite. Did you hear anything about it. {{{did you have anything to do with this?}}}

I'ts because it was a cloudless night that the temp. dipped down into the single digits. There was no cloud cover to hold the heat from radiating out into space in the form of infra-red. Cloudy weather is almost always warmer that is clear, at least up here in the frozen North.

Oh, and it was a blamy -4 here in the Sault.
