0, calm and the sun is beginning to shine.

Sunny and very bright. -21C (-6F) feels like -30C (-22F). Going to go up all the way to -20C today. My MIL lives in Cornwall Ontario, only 100 km from here and it's -28C (-18F). That's 100 km closer to CWS and Roch.

Pretty cold for here. Quite windy and the "feels like" is at 15F. We had a few flurries earlier but now it is snowing quite earnestly. Brought the brass monkey in weeks ago and the witch now has a thermal bra on as well as a heavy jacket. Today's going to be our warm day. Things are predicted to go downhill from here through Saturday.

Today's my weekly marketing day and I'm not looking forward to suiting up like an astronaut to do it. One thing's for certain, I'm going to put my long hair up today. Otherwise, with this wind, it would take me a week to brush all the tangles out.

Wonder when the next flight to Belize is?

I thought I was going mad. My apartment kept feeling cold. (I am old. It always feels cold!) So I would just tap the thermostat and sure enough it would kick on. Ten minutes later, cold again. I looked at the thermometer in my apartment, and it was down five degrees. No wonder I was feeling cold. So I boosted up the heater. Warm again. Not for long. I finally take a look at the temperature outside. Down from 35F to 14F. No wonder I am going mad! I have no idea how cold it is supposed to get today. But every time it drops outside, so does it inside.

The sky is grey and dreary. Very cold looking outside. The kind that gets into your bones and stays there forever. I am ready for spring.

It is terribly cold here with snow flurries. It is now 21 but the wind chill is 9.

With love,

Mamma is ready for spring also! Do you have one of those electric heated blankets? Perhaps that may help, yes? I'm sorry you're so uncomfortable.
