Well now I'm really glad I posted it for you! I think of that song every time I see your comment about your heart's in Ohio.

Right now it's 31 degrees and clear. We are supposed to get a snow storm Thursday into Friday. I am in the 3 - 5 inch range, but we're right on the edge of the 4 - 8 inch range, so who knows what we will get. I'm not going out anywhere because my cold is going from bad to worse and I feel terrible. I need some home made chicken soup!

I so want snow. I would love to be snowed in the the rest of the week. I've done all of the incantations for snow: Snow Dance, wearing clothing inside out, etc. I really deserve snow.

We may get some snow on Thursday....but....snow tonight would be awesome...and did I mention that I want more than a tiny dusting?

Freakin' cold but not as cold as it is in Northern MN (-65 where my parents live--cold enough to toss hot water in the air and have it freeze on the way down...perhaps the source of the words that froze in the air in the Paul Bunyan and Babe stories)? I would use the furnace, but the HSI failed...part on order (delayed because of the holidays) so it is wood only, lots of layers, and checking the weather to see if this friggin' cold weather will break--enough already.

A lot of good it did to break down and get a propane fill (first time in 2 years I have caved and not been able to heat with just wood...).

Bitter cold in SE South Dakota! You do not want to be outside to long here. It feels like the cold burns your skin. 10 below 0 with that darn wind.

As CWS wrote, it's freakin' cold. Windchill factors down to -55C (-67F).

This is our current weather and forecast. For comparison purposes: 0F = -18C and -40F = -40C.

What is it with this winter? Plus we had a miserably hot and humid summer in NEXT. I remember these kinds of weather swings back when I was younger...and didn't miss them in the least.

14F Big lazy snowflakes are drifting slowly to the ground and it's a picture perfect moment. Tonight and tomorrow it turns nasty and we get howling winds and drifting snow up to 10" total.
