For me it's mixing up a big batch of yeast bread dough for pizza, cinnamon buns and loaves of fresh bread, next comes a pot of soup or tomato sauce. I love to see the steam streaming down the kitchen windows, I still can't resist writing in the steam and drawing funny faces!

Humans are odd animals, at least this one is!

Hmmm, note to self. Buy some extra bacon. Better get some milk and bread too.
Now bacon I understand! And these guys have the "stocking up" right:




Beer, wine, Bourbon. Whatever keeps you warm.

Wow taxy, it's as cold as a witch's...kiss! We aren't that cold. A "balmy" 8 degrees (-15 C).

We're in the 8-12 inch band of snow. Told Himself we better get ourselves to church tomorrow so we don't have to worry about digging out early on Sunday. So much for that "day of rest". Apparently God has a sense of humor.

It is the Lemming Syndrome. One foes over the cliff, they all go over. Snowflakes seem to jump start the whole thing.

They predicted snow overnight, but I woke up to nary a flake. They are still saying 2-4, but I don't know when. Maybe it passed us up and went straight to New England.

Very strange. I can't recall ever seeing so much steam coming in off of the bay.

warm, and windy. It was -17C (1.4F) and -26C (-15F) with windchill yesterday, and right now it is +5C (41F) and -3C (27F) with windchill. No wonder I have a bit of a headache!

Still have roughly 2 feet of snow on the ground though :crazy:
