Currently -8C (24F) and sunny.

The "winds gusting to 90 km/hr seem to have gusted to 100 km/hr (62 mph). Approximately 60,000 people were without power and they don't all have it back yet. There was also wind damage, beyond the branches on power lines. At least three brick walls collapsed in Montreal. Thankfully, no one was hurt.

Wow, taxy, you've had some real gusts by you! Thankfully, you're OK. We're OK too, since we didn't have that strong of winds last night.

Right now~~~
I got sunshine, on a chilly day.......
I'm glad the weather finally got cold enough to make (and EAT!) soup. We love soup, but not enough to have when the weather is warm. Sometimes cold weather isn't so bad. *ducks, runs, and hides*

First BIG SNOW of the season, 6" on the ground and another 6" on the way before nightfall!

So I got up early and turned on the oven, made a low carb pumpkin pie and roasted half a ham!

I need the ham bone more than I need the ham. Tomorrow I will make a small pot of Senate Navy Bean Soup, AB style.

Did you know there are at least two official recipes, why doesn't that surprise me!

It's all yours, A Bea. We're suffering through a cold snap (48 degrees this morning); the horses are wearing blankets.

You can have yours, too, Charlie. Five degrees!

28F. I can live with that. What I can't live with is the bitter, biting cold wind. I had two appointments this morning. Standing in that wind for even a sort time was torture. Oddly enough, the wind was blowing harder in the sun, than in the shade.

Brrr...

Here in NYC we have unusually mild weather.

This is because of El Nino....

Cold and windy for sure. I hate when the wind starts and the barometer changes quickly - I often get headaches. Today was no exception. Nothing like coffee (caffeine) or ibuprofen (usually successful) stopped the ache, so I reached for (as Himself called it) the "big guns". I grabbed a chocolate bar and ate it all. Just waiting for it to work its magic.

Some folks are really sensitive to weather. Pirate has neuropathy in his feet. Rain and the cold of winter really brings on the pain. So bad, he can hardly walk like today. And he doesn't even have to go out.

Folks with arthritis can tell you even in the sun is shining, if rain is coming.
