I don't even have my winter coat out. I went out with a hoodie on.

Ditto! I hope it pours cats and dogs, buckets and any other saying that is needed to break this drought. Even though we are complaining about how cold it is, even too much sunshine can start to wear on your nerves.

My sister just messaged me, there are 327 schools closed in Minnesota for tomorrow. Due to the dangerously cold temp.'s. The closest town to us (50 miles north) is 2 hours late. Cold & windey here in our little SE corner of South Dakota. Wind gusts at 50 mph & 5 Below 0.

That's a great way of looking at it!

We haven't had a drop of rain in who knows how long so it's just a drop in the bucket, but it's something. This California drought is really scary so we're all crossing our fingers for a good steady steady rain. I just put a pot of soup on....whoo hoooo.
About the same time I read your post, Kayelle, we were finally getting a little rain, too! Wasn't that nice? I know what you mean about jinxing it - I'm almost afraid to mention the "r" word, for fear it will immediately stop.
Made a nice sunset this evening.

Oh my goodness! My brother and I were just talking about the extreme cold weather that so many of you are going through right now. Sending prayers and hopes for an early spring.

That sounds like my eather a few weeks ago, Simon.

Right now it's 25F, which is an improvement, but we've got a major snowstorm going on out there. I would not want to be driving right now.

Somebody send Fi a pair of mittens with the string on them
I keep a pair of lightweight Jersey gloves in any of the three coats I might be wearing when the weather turns cold. They work well for short jaunts outside.
