Here it's pretty much the same as where pdswife is; sadly, our flowers have started blooming outside and I fear they're goners unless I can cover them really well. The NWS issued a report for temperatures in the teens and 50 mph winds. Think I'll make soup today and burrow down for the weekend.

Its bloody freezing here! We are at -26C which ends up being -15F. ARGH! We had spring weather on the weekend so this is particularly painful. We've had such a mild winter that our blood is thin and we are all whining about how cold it is now. LOL. As usual, we will likely get our worst spate of winter weather in March.

That's what I'm doing.
I have beans soaking just waiting to become bean and bacon soup.
I have to take the neighbors dog for a chilly walk this afternoon but besides
that I don't plan on leaving the house until I can do so with a pair of shorts and a halter top! lol... ok...just a sweater and a pair of sweat pants.

Cold and snowy. More cold than snowy though. The bottom is supposed to drop out on temperatures for us, with the expected high tomorrow to be 3 above! Right now we're sitting on 14 above with a wind chill of 0. Saturday we will wake up to 14 below with wind chills who knows how far lower!

Bean and bacon soup, yum...I decided to do a curried potato and lentil soup--'cause we need the heat!
