Last weekend it was me alone with the cats. Elenka left Thursday night for a extra long weekend with her Mom in Florida. It was kind of cool there but not as frigid as here in the North. Saturday morning, I awoke to -5°F and this frosty greeting on the family room window. It was cold, but not as cold as the previous week when Weather.com had us at -20°F with a wind chill reading of -34°F. If you've never been in cold like that, I'll just say that, in my book, once it hits 0°F all bets are off. If the wind's not blowing, it makes no difference to me. I can't tell one below zero temperature from another. Never could. Never will. My advice? Just grin and bear it. Oh, and enjoy the frosty designs on your windows. You can scratch your name in it for added fun.
