Isn't that a great movie, Rock? The guy shoveling his driveway pretty much says it all. And of course, the chipper/shredder.

That forecast says "10 km/h". That's about 6 mph, so not really all that breezy. It's just freakin' cold.

The local weatherman (Cleveland) said the average high is 26.We'll be long gone by Wednesday, when the high will be 2. Or 3. What difference does a degree or two matter when it's THAT cold!

Brasov is located in a high mountain pass between the Transylvanian Alps and the Carpathian Mountains, and we get bad weather in winter. Sometimes the main road near Borgo Pass is closed and no one goes out.

We dress very warmly in layers and sometimes the power goes out but we have a generator. Mamma makes sure we always have much food in the pantry and in my old Dacia, I had chains, a flashlight and batteries, an extra Dacia battery, a tool kit, and two warm blankets because in Snot, her heater went out a lot and it would become cold going home from school or the market sometimes. I had extra windshield wipers, de-icing liquid, and extra antifreeze and oil.

With love,
~Cat
