How did they taste, Andy? I bet it was worth risking frost bite.

It's suppose to get to 10 degrees tomorrow!! I just want a little snow... I don't think that's too much to ask... We rarely get snow... If it's gonna be cold, a lil snow would be nice. 😊

That's dedication. I would have been happy with them in the grill pan.

Hope you don't mind, Cheryl

The good thing about this weather is, since I don't have room in the deep freeze for the big turkey DH got from work, I don't need a freezer right now. Fareway kindly stored it for us until we got back from our trip, so now it gets to sit outside in a cooler. It should be fine since it's well below 0F here, and will be for quite some time.

Sounds like a great alternative for a deep freeze, Dawg! Reminds me of back in the day when I lived in Montana and used to drink beer...we'd put the six packs out the front door in the snow, then have to remember to bring them in and put them in the fridge to warm them up before they froze. LOL

13F...guess I better wear a coat today, maybe a hat.

Seriously, I empathize with you folks who are not used to these cold temps, just remember my empathy in the summer when all of you are basking in the heat and I am cursing the sun.

Coldest night in some time.

I got up this morning and SO announced our indoor/outdoor thermometer was on the fritz. It had jumped from 11 to 36. As I got dressed and came downstairs, she announced the reading was now 50F and that it must be the battery.

I know when the battery dies, the signal from the outdoor unit to the indoor unit just stops so I was curious. I took a look at the indoor unit to see that the temperature wasn't 50 at all but rather it was 5.0F.

I suggested SO use her glasses more often.
