Our fun weather

Today we're having a warmer day than yesterday. Right now as I type it is 6 and with wind chill feels like -3.

SB schools do not have snow days. It snows here too often, they'd be off all the time. They DO call "cold" days. When the wind chill is below -25 degrees, they call it. Yesterday, the temperature in the morning was -12 degrees. But our wind chill was more impressive. It was -39. When it's that cold, you just want to stay in the house warm and snuggly under a quilt. So, that's basically what we did for most of the morning. Later in the afternoon, Travis and I went out to snow blow the driveway. We helped our next door neighbor who is 89 years old so he wouldn't have to be out there too long. By the time we were done, we finally had warmed up, but we had to take several breaks to warm up our fingers.

They're calling for more snow tonight, but I don't think it's supposed to get soooooo cold. I'm still enjoying winter, but these frigid temps I could do without. Luckily, they don't last too long and I have a warm house, with lots of quilts and blankies. :)

I hope you all are having weather to your liking wherever you are!

I'm shivering just thinking about you. How sweet of you and Travis to care for your neighbor like that. Which comes at no surprise to me. I heart you!

sorry you are freezing Cindy! Thanks for stopping by my blog and your sweet comments. My older guy Hayden is better and then my 4 year old Colby got the stomach bug yesterday so it was a rough couple of days but all is well and its nice outside so they are out playing.

I cannot wait to watch our Pats get the Giants!!
