OK, after freezing our tails off on Monday at -30C (-22F) it has warmed up to 7C which is 44.6F. I think this is the weirdest winter I have seen. There was a snowman on my lawn yesterday when I came home from work at 11pm, and by 11am there was nothing left of it.

He's in the downstairs freezer. I was worried about him.

I don't think we got above 20 degrees last week. Our low was -14. Brrrrr. I sprained my thumb shovelling snow, and my husband's arthritis flared up. NOT FUN. but the party went on (I'm calling a guy to shovel the snow, my thumb is throbbing!!!

Well, remember a few months ago when the Old Farmer's Almanac predicted an unusually cold winter with possible heavy snow preceding Christmas? It looks like they nailed it again: http://wwwa.accuweather.com/news-weather-headlines.asp

I couldn't find the link but I specifically remember the National Weather Service predicting a warmer-than-usual winter. Kinda makes you wonder, huh?
