-27?

-27 was our coldest wind chill reading today. Of course, now it's warmed up to 2 degrees air temp and -13 wind chill. School was cancelled today because of the temps. That's what happens here. They don't really call "snow days", they call "extreme cold days". Did you know bare skin can get frostbite in about 10 minutes in temps that cold? Yeah, you learn new things all the time! :) If you live in a house with windows and doors that don't have excellent seals you might have frozen doors like we do. I had to use a hair dryer to melt the ice to open the door to feed the birds and squirrels.









Speaking of squirrels, I haven't posted on our obese squirrels lately. They have their winter blubber and fur, luckily. I still worry about them even tho they are like little balls of fat and fur. Most of the day, they must stay in their cubbies, holes or wherever they live since they don't come around too much when it's THIS cold.







I thought it would be fun to see how my hair would freeze in 2 minutes. Here are the results. :) Ah, boredom makes you do silly things. :)

Lol, love the hairdo, very Flock of Seagulls! I wish we could have learned some of our science facts in school the way you present them, way more fun than the usual! :)

I was blog surfing and found your blog through Piece by Piece. I've enjoyed reading it, especially Robo Hamster - too funny. Oh, and I copied your obese squirrel photo and posted it on my blog. Hope that was o.k. - I gave you credit. I'm from Texas and love to quilt.
