Depends on how tired we are taxy. Maybe I'll get in the car in my"nicegown" * like we would do with the kids when we went to the drive-in.

* "Nicegown" is what our daughter called her favorite nightie.

Our schools are on a 2 hour delay for tomorrow morning because the temperature is going to be 17 degrees below zero.

OMG! I just looked at the forecast and I'm freaking out. We will probably be getting snow overnight and the temperature at 8 a.m. is expected to be 25F with a wind chill of 9! And getting colder all day! I swear, I don't have the clothes for this.

You just gave me an idea. I can put a plow blade on the front of my scooter and hire myself out.

Lots of layers GG, I actually top off with a layer of Shrek's flannel . I look like a walking clothes pile.

Don't despair. Just stay indoors. Our temperature is going up from 2F. to 3F. and a wind chill of -25F. And it is getting worse. We are getting inches of snow by the hour. The North Shore has over a foot of snow. Perfect weather for PF. I would gladly send this snow to her. Today is the worst of the storm.

Hey, just be glad that today's fashion is not the really high mini skirts with a half jacket that only goes only to your waist.

I see you're here, and am assuming that everything went well. Glad to see you!

Baby, It's Cold Outside!

-8 headed for a high of 4!

The sun is streaming in the windows, about eight inches of light fluffy snow. I hear the snow blowers sputtering and snow shovels scraping off the stoops around our complex, shaping up to be a beautiful winter day!

I wish I could stay indoors, but there's a monthly coffee club meeting today that I want to go to. I do still have long johns from when I lived in Michigan, so that will help.

On the bright side, the temperature is supposed to be 59 on Sunday
