    Going to reek havoc on the price of citrus products, though.

    Bones ... I feel your pain. Sort of. On this side of the mountain it's a heatwave at 11 degrees.

    In 8 months we'll be complaining about the heat.

    The good news- on Dec 21 the days start to get longer.

    NEVER!

    Yes ... December 21 is a very good day indeed. :)

    16 degrees when I left the warmth of my house this morning. All I can say is thank God for remote car starters.

    The winds here have been and will be till Friday at 10-25 mph. with temps in the low 20s. Yesterday it was 15 or so with a wind chill of zero when I dropped the kid off at the bus stop. Brrrrr.

    I've kept nearly all the shades down (honey comb shades, I highly recommend them!) to keep the heat in. So far, haven't had the heat above 64 in here. Aces!

    I've been working out in it and I have gotten used to it. I go outside in shirtsleeves and it is 15 degrees and feels nice. As long as the wind isn't blowing 30 mph it is refreshing! Isn't it wonderful to go outside and hear the snow crunching under your feet and seeing your breath? The sounds of nature are so clear, the air nice crispy clean and at night the stars are so much clearer. Get out and enjoy the winter like when you a were a child. Then come in and get a hot cup of coffee or hot chocolate and warm up by the fireplace.

    You never know how many more winters you will be able to enjoy!!! What with global warming and all that.
