Today, the kids had a 2 hour late start. I looked outside and though "why"? It looks like a pretty nice day, the sun is out shining and it just looks pretty. Boy, we were fooled! It is BITTER COLD out.
I park my van in the garage. My van has a thermometer and in the garage, it showed 5 above. I knew it was colder then that (we had not listened to the radio for more then the late start)------well, we watched the temp go down, down, down. The girls actually counted it down. It was 14 below, then 13, then you get the idea. Finally it quit at 20 below. Yes, you read that right! 20 BELOW ZERO. On the radio they said, factor in the wind-chill and it can be up to 38 below zero. I feel like I am living in the Artic. This winter already feel so long and so cold. I am ready for SPRING. It simply can not get here soon enough.
So, I have a picture of that little squirrel up there....how do they survive the winter? I still see them out. Trying to find food. They are so small. I still see little birds flying around. The little sparrow's and a few others....how do they survive? Really makes you wonder. My furnace keeps running and I am dreading the LP guy coming again! Okay enough grumbling....
On another note, it is bright and the sun is shinning. I am a little more then half way on my special order and should be wrapping it up, very soon. Yay!! I hope you all have a great day. Stay warm and safe, if you are in an area that is receiving lots of snow and cold temps. Ta ta for now, ~Tonya
