I guess I shouldn't complain then, its in the negative teens here with wind chill.
Friend called last night from Hayward Wi. -20 there and I'm jealous. We are just above 0 and have about 5" of new snow. Finally winter comes!
Dave we hit a low of -15 according to our outdoor thermometer last night brrrr and loving It. The temps are finally getting more like winter and letting me test our new stove It is times like this you can say thank god for the wood stove!
Eat some more chili Dave.
You bring up a good point, although a subtle one. This cold weather just wears you down.
I used to work up on the North Slope out in the weather, whatever it was, and I could tell what it would be like outside before I opened my eyes in the morning. When the temperatures plummeted, I had a hard time waking up and getting out of bed in the morning.
Years later, I still find it's harder to go about your daily routine, and when I get home from work (and I work in an office now), I just want to kick back for the evening. Not much juice left in the batteries.
I believe that we have some deep wiring that tells us that when it's cold out, we should hunker down, sleep a lot, and stay put. Four-day workweeks make sense to me.
I think you're right snow. I awoke this a.m. feeling less than willing and looked at the thermometer to find -7 Â°F .
Now, I know that's not cold to you, but it's a bit chilly. Forecast called for 7 Â°F , but they forgot the - sign. :lol:
If I hadn't loaded the stove well last night, the house would have felt like an icebox this a.m., and I would have been grumpy for a minute.
Sat. morning was better-only -35f on the thermometer. Sun. morning will be even better! The wind is howling right now.
p.s. Dennis-I have the makings for chili on the kitchen counter ready to go!
Not even possible . . .
'Cause me gets grumpy every once in a while.....for a minute. :lol:
