We just flew back from a glorious 76 to -14F, crazy winds and blowing snow. Thankfully, the car started, and we got home!

Glad you made it home without car woes.

Thanks, Taxy! Car sat for 12 days at the hotel Park and Fly, we were sure we'd need a jump, or have to stay another night at the hotel. Whew!

Cold as a witch's t....

Brought the brass monkey in days ago and now the witch is begging for a thermally-lined bra. What a complainer!

Unusually cold here. We were supposed to have had a bunch of snow yesterday, but it went north of us. Whew! What we've been left with is bitter, skin-burning cold. The winds are at about 35 mph, which only makes the temp even more dangerous.

I got up about 4 a.m. to go to the bathroom and the thermometer read 19F. When we got up for the morning, it read 16F. Today's high is not supposed to go above 20F.

The next several days and nights are predicted to be even colder, single digits with continued heavy winds. Snow and ice are supposed to move in Wednesday afternoon.

All our bird feeders and suet cages are in high demand.

Belize is looking better and better.

We just returned from the Yucatan, they're in the midst of a Norte down there. However, warm rain is a whole lot better than what we have here now!

Right now it's raining with fog. Temps in the mid-high 30s. Tomorrow, we'll be getting the freezing cold temps you all are experiencing.

The wind is still using my window to whistle. Very annoying!

9F and I must go out. Odd, I have felt cold since the surgery, so I am wrapped up in blankets. Need to find my winter coat, probably behind a guitar somewhere.

Don't we have members in England here? I was just viewing pics from England about the flooding there!

Anyone in England/Wales and environs affected?

I can't complain, here in the PNW, although it is a bit cold for this area, just below freezing at night.
