The wind is bleeping cold. I haven't lit the woodstove since Monday night...gonna have to fire it up tonight (here at the farm, the main source of heat is the woodstove. When it is cranked, I run around in shorts and a t-shirt--it gets so hot, so I don't like to crank it unless I have to put on "long pants.") And, yeah, it could be my age....or the fact that I had "elderly" Saints and Newfs for years and got used to keeping the house "cool" (okay, cold) so that they were comfortable.

My dad doesn't want to meet me in TX in February because it will be "cold." My response--isn't it colder in N. MN in February than it is in Corpus Christie...I haven't checked, but I'm guessing it is. And, I might have to have the a/c on in the room the whole time I'm there.

We are having a real cold snap in SE S.D. A high of only 16F today & a low of 7F. The wind is extremely cold today. We have had a dusting of snow but nothing real measurable, much worse north of us.

7 degrees here right now, and dark. Snow off and on all day today, but not much accumulation. The windchill was in single digits during the day, and is well below zero now.

We are getting the bitter cold now, but still the snow is elusive. 16F...maybe a high of 30 today.

Snow turning to rain. No real accumulation.

Icy rain today. Not driving in to the City to curl...sigh, I like curling (and I was going to do an egg drop on my bro and others....I have 7 dozen extra eggs....oops, gotta eat more eggs...).

The temp is in the mid 40's. But you would never know it by the ice cold rain. This is the kind of chill that gets into your bones.

Had to go to Winthrop this morning. Winthrop is a peninsula that juts out into the Atlantic. We were riding along the beach front and the waves were crashing over the wall. Scary. The vehicle got hit by a wave and caused us to rock. And it wasn't even high tide yet. I live just a block from the Atlantic and you would never know it was the same ocean. Where it comes in at this end is a cove. Nice and calm.
