Looks like Mother Nature got off her lazy butt and decided to get an attitude. After having relatively mild - 40s and 50s F - it was 20 F when I got up this morning. I'm sure it went into the teens during the night. Our outdoor kitties stayed in their protected house with the 75-watt light bulb. Sometimes I think they say "thank you" to us for making it warm and safe for them.

Gonna be very, very cold the next few days. Perhaps some flurries.

The cold drove out another raccoon, so we have one in the trap on the front porch this morning. That makes 3 'possums and 4 raccoons. I think there's at least one more to capture before we'll be rid of whomever is walking around between the second and third floor of our house. Have yet to figure out how they're getting in. I could hope they'd freeze their butts off, but they're too well insulated and furry for that.

We get by with a little help from our friends

It's a little cool here in Nayarit, MX - only about 73F right now, at 11:15 on a Sunday morning. Should get up to around 82F today, with a low of 60F. Scattered clouds. Actually, it is usually a little warmer here this time of year - we are expecting some rain midweek. The tourists will be disappointed...but after the hot and humid summer/fall, it's nice to put a blanket on the bed. And have an excuse to make some minestrone soup.

Not that cold (in the 40s), but cloudy, dank and damp, so it feels colder. Another flannel jammies and hot chocolate kind of day.

It's cold and clear here. Weather prediction for the next few days will be very cold, no rain and snow as yet. Very unusual January this year!
The proof of the pudding is in the eating!

I had to go get my F to C conversion chart to figure out what you guys were talking about.
It was a warm 11C (52F) here this week, today it is -1C (30F) which is still very for Janurary.

BRRRRR! I'm showing 13 degrees. Our friends to the north (I'm looking at you, Canada ) are being very generous with the Arctic air. I'm not complaining tho, it's a great excuse to get the fireplace roaring!
