Default It's COLD!

Went to work this morning...it was 9 degrees F.

Came home from work this evening...it was 12 degrees F.

Told hubby I'm not leaving the house until the temp breaks the freezing mark. He laughed. Dog doesn't even want to go outside. Only birds I've seen all week are crows and Canada Geese.

Co-worker from Poland told me that northern Europe is also freezing their cha-chas off. She said the elementary schools there were closed last week because it was so cold and apparently many children in Poland walk to school.

Anyone else shivering?

The temperature here is also unbearably cold. In winters I wish it were summer and in summers I wish it were winter. I suppose spring is my favorite season.

Default It's HOT!

You oughta spend your winters downunder, Rhea.

One warning, though: The heat may affect your performance, as the unfortunate English limited overs (cricket) side found out yesterday.

Twenty degrees Fahrenheit BELOW zero here with the wind chill factor last night. Of course no sane person is going out at night these days.

Oz sounds like a fine option, but then there's the money issue. I'm not exactly the jet-setting type. Two homes in different hemispheres is a bit out of my budget. lol!

Weather report says we're supposed to get some relief this weekend. The temp might break the freezing mark. And today our high temp is supposed to edge up into the low twenties. Oh joy!

Trying to visualize warm beaches...but it's not working!!!

Don't worry Rhea. It gives you a chance to get some wear out of those little flying piggie socks of yours.

In the meantime, I'll work on a virtual reality system for you that immerses your senses within tropical stimuli to trick the rest of your being into believing that you're enjoying a good book while soaking up some rays and a few pina coladas somewhere in the South Pacific during your downtime.

Zero degrees on the thermometer when we woke this morning. That's Fahrenheit, people!!! However our forecast says that we'll be back to normal temps for this time of year starting tomorrow. It's a good thing, too. After two weeks of brutally cold weather people around here are starting to get goofy.

Poor, Australia. You guys are having a crazy Summer. I don't think I'd like 111 F much, although I've never experienced it.

Well, as predicted we're back to bitterly cold weather, rather than the brutally cold weather we've had the past two weeks. Funny thing...bitterly cold doesn't feel so, um, COLD any more. In fact, 22 degrees feels downright balmy. Or is that BARMY?

C'MON SPRING!!!
I WANNA SEE SOME CROCUSES!!!
TULIPS WOULD BE NICE, TOO!!!
