Baby, it's COLD outside

Ok, this is DEFINITELY not a complaint, just a tale of the weather here in Sturgeon Bay. It's been cold, many of you know from my older posts. I'm LOVING the snow. I'm enjoying the cold weather, since I HATE, HATE, HATE the heat. Today is downright frigid! Even the snowflakes won't come out! Right now, it's -3 degrees with a windchill of about -21. I don't mind since I'm in my warm, cozy house.

I feel sorry for all my wildlife friends. The bunnies, squirrels, foxes (we saw one running across the highway tonight), deer and the birds. I hope they're all tucked away in their dens, holes and nests. Now, I realize animals can usually deal with this. They get thicker fur and feathers. I just don't like them to have to be in the freezing cold. I told Travis we should put up little tents in the tree off the branches. I was only half kidding. Could you just see all the little canvas triangles in the trees?! :) tee hee

The air is cold, but what really gets you is the wind. And since I don't like to wear lots of clothing, I've been cold lately. I am usually warm, but a sweatshirt in this kind of wind just doesn't cut it. I guess I'll have to break out my coat. Darn! I might even have to wear...GASP..gloves! Oh well. I might just get into my flannel pants and t-shirt, and get under a quilt. Now that sounds like an EXCELLENT plan. :)
