I agree!! It has either been cold or storming for two weeks now. We are supposed to have stormy weather through next Wednesday. Enough already!! It would be nice to have a nice sunny day that was is above 30 degrees!! Even the people who normally like the winter weather are saying that we need a break.

Cold and snowing, again. Perfect weather for cuddling up with the Misses in front of a blazing fire with a nice cup of hot cocoa.

Wish I had a fireplace...

For what we have been through lately -2F feels HOT! oops make that -3F. Tomorrow 25F. I am going to lather on some Heat, suit up in insulated hooded snowsuit and facial scarf , and sun for 30 seconds. After all that dressing, if the sun does not come out... I'll pretend I'm on standby watching for the school bus for the kids! Like they would ever call a snow day in January!

All of these freezing conditions you guys go thru I know I would loathe and you all have my sympathy. Shame we can't do "weather credits" like they do "carbon credits" and swap some of each other's conditions until we have a moderate weather for us all!

Icky and sticky again today with so little breeze outside that it is cooler when my cat swishes his tail near me than for me to stand by the open window! LOL Now if I could just get the six of them to swish in unison, I might be on to something.... ;-)

Just heard the man on the radio say it is 13 degrees below zero, wind chill of 26 below. Oh well, at least it's not going to snow today. My BIL and SIL are coming back from their Caribbean cruise on Saturday, boy are they in for a climate shock.
