I read somewhere that the weather in the Northwest (seattle area) was causing a lot of problems with flights in and out of Alaska. I feel bad for the people whose flights have been cancelled and their plans are so disrupted during the holiday crush...

Yes... the airport has cancelled and delayed many flights! It's really yucky here!!!

I've seen far worse, even here in southern Illinois. We have no snow, but it's supposed to get down to 7 degrees again tonight, and ice is predicted for Tuesday.
It's winter time, my friends!

In the meantime, I talked to our son, Chris, and my grandson Erik in Florida yesterday...it was E's b'day, and Chris and his wife were cooking him a special dinner. It's been in the mid 70's, lower 80's there, and they're still running around in shorts.
Erik, who just turned twenty, goes to the beach every Sunday and says girls there outnumber the guys 3 to 1. He says it's paradise.

Okay, this is getting ridiculous!!! we have had a good foot of snow since 10 am and right now it is coming down in huge flakes straight down. As fast as DH is shoveling, it is covering again. I thought this was The Great WET North? We aren't used to this much white!

It's 3F right now and the wind is whipping like crazy. I just went out and gave my outside kitties a dish of warmed whole milk to fortify themselves against the even colder night. Not going to be pretty for any living thing outside tonight. Also checked to be sure their house/bed was secure against the wind that's blowing.

Currently it's 2 degrees outside. Wind gust are 40 m.p.h. So that being said the wind chill factor is now 22 below zero. The low for tonight will be 3 below zero. So wind chill will be probably 25 below zero.
