Currently -6C (21F). It's snowing lightly and we have freezing rain and wind warnings.

15F with winds @ 16 MPH so it feels like -3F. Shrek is taking me over to the mall so I can get a walk in.

Once it gets dark out, we no longer have weather. And I'm not opening the door to confirm it's -8 F and dropping by the hour.

Bitter cold in SE South Dakota. All schools, and everything else, is closed tomorrow. It's 15 below 0 now with a 40 below 0 windchill. They are talking 55 below windchill for tomorrow morning. It burns your face from the cold to be out for more than a couple of minutes. The wind is 26 mph. which makes it feel colder. Minnesota closed schools for Monday & Tuesday.

It's a mess out there. Freezing rain, buses cancelled already through to tomorrow some time, warnings, fatal accident just a few miles away. Staying put.

We'll be getting that tonight. The freezing rain has just started. I have no intention of going out, 'til maybe sometime on Tuesday. Well, I'll see how traffic is tomorrow. I need to pick up my replacement car key.

Weather here is whacky. It got cold so no open windows for a week, then warmed up so windows were open for a couple of days. Now, the Northwest winds have picked up and are kicking at over 20 MPH and the temperature is dropping into the 20's. Ack!!

What are you Northernmost folks (Alix!) blowing back at us poor Gulf coastal people??

Global warming? Yeah, right!

I keep switching between my sweats and my shorts. Sheesh!

A little something for you Z:



It's a balmy 67 degrees with low humidi...oh, you meant outside the house? Well, earlier this evening the only way I knew there was a house across the street is because I had seen it before. Between the fog and ice crystals in the air all I saw was a white blur. The roads are looking pretty shiny too. Tonight and tomorrow are unseasonably warm, about 50 and rainy Monday. Tuesday? 15 for a high. Himself and I took a quick trip down the hill to our close little grocery store (3/4 of a mile) and I got provisions for a few days of cooking. I'll make a run to the big grocery store late this week when the weather turns more normal for January.
