The weather here is COLD! I'm freezing my tail off and so is Azia when we have to go outside. Snow is in the forecast tonight, but not very much of it; just flurries.

I love cold weather, though. It's very invigorating! Snow smells so clean.

With love,

Is this your first winter here in this country Cat?

You are in the warmer part of the country. Try living where SimonBaker and PF live. Or go to northern Minnesota in the middle of the winter. Another place that just loves the winter in up by Oswego, New York. Twenty-five inches a day of snow. I would be afraid to go there even in the middle of summer. They have what is called the "Lake Effect."

It's getting chilly here with strong north winds. Windows are closed at least until the wind changes direction, but probably not today. High of 55, but mostly in the 40s all day.

As we say in Picksburgh, it's slippy outside.

It's -6C (21F) and supposedly feels like -13C (9F). It's sunny. It will go up all day and hit 0C (32F) at around 18h and continue upwards. We seem to be about to have a "warm wave". +12C (54F) expected for Sunday!

She's actually in the mountains in western North Carolina - not exactly the warmer part of the country, or the state. I just checked the weather - it's 21F, same as TaxLady's weather in Montreal

We have bright sun and 38F right now.

I come from Romania. It's really cold there, too!

This is my second winter. Yes, GG, it's cold!

And it's cold and windy tonight. I came from the Carpathian Mountains and the Transylvanian Alps in Brasov, and I live in the mountains here also in western North Carolina.

Mountains are very cold sometimes!

With love,
~Cat
